Thanks! I'm glad to hear that, I didn't think anyone used it anymore! I'm glad to hear so
I'll definitely check them out!
Glad to hear
you have another job already. Flossie is definitely a backstabber who will pretend to be your friend and then stab you when you least expect it.
Glad to hear it.
Wasn't sure from the way you worded your post.
I am glad to hear you say that...(sm)
It is nice to see someone with a professional attitude such as yours. I have just seen so much trashing of employers around here that it is no wonder that many times MTs are not taken seriously.
Glad to hear you are not looking any further at them...sm
FutureNet Technologies is a great place you may want to consider. Their pay is always on time and always correct. No benefits but the staff is great, pay is great and pay is on time and correct - that is benefit enough for me.

Glad to hear you are not looking further into Superior Global. It will save you a lot of headaches.

Hope you find a great place to call home!
I am glad to hear about MDI-MD
Just starting there!  I hope everything works out with this company. 
Glad to hear that!
I know some people LOVE it. Not me. Maybe if they'd keep the bad dictators off of it, but they're now putting everyone on it. You might be flying through 1 or 2 reports, and then all of a sudden get someone who definitely does not belong on VR. That messes up your line count for the whole day. Plus getting 30% less in pay. Like I said, I've only been doing this for 1 month, but my line count for VR has only gone up on average 30 lines daily. My straight-typing line count has gone down 40 lines daily. How could that be? These companies are messing with the statistics to make VR look better than it actually is, all the while paying less to the Transcriptionist for both VR and straight typing. I'm making now with VR(cpl)what I made in 1997 when I first was hired to work at home via internet. At least I have a job. Still, I feel defeated.
I'm glad to hear that
I just accepted a job with them.  I sent them a resume about 1-1/2 weeks ago, did not do the testing on that day because I didn't have time. Did testing last Saturday, called them on Monday and talked to the receptionist. Was thinking of giving them another call very soon but today they called me.  Good luck! 
Glad to hear this.
Happy to hear that KS will not be giving in to Transcend. I don't care what kind of ranking they have, offshoring is bad news for us.

Between VR and offshoring, we will all end up at flea markets hocking our wares...but then again...you have to pay rent to get a table at the flea market. No money for that. Oh well.

I have too many fat rolls to work a corner. The gobs and gobs of folks in other industries who have lost jobs have already taken the fast food jobs. Guess I really need to come up with a plan.

Regarding the companies losing millions each year...I don't get it either.

Glad to hear that!
LOL, I keep wondering when the 'honeymoon' will end because it's just so astonishingly fantastic working there. I keep thinking it's too good to be true, but posts like yours help convince me that it is like being in MT heaven working for TT!!!
I'm rather glad to hear that, thanks!
I was suspicious because normally HR/recruitment personnel use their real name and their posts are MUCH more professional, such as thanking everyone for their interest, etc.

Glad to hear this may not be legitimate, because if it was, it would have been, IMO, a negative reflection on the company.

I was so glad to hear this!! They are a decent

a decent company despite the posts here.

Good for you! I am glad to hear that you
are a good recruiter, having no idea who you are, was only relaying MY experiences.  Sorry for those, such as you, who do your job well.  I have lost thousands of dollars depending on what was told to me by recruiters, and that is a fact.  If I would not have listened to the out and out lies, simple questions like, Will such and such an abbreviation Expander work with your system? and was told yes, when they had no clue if it would or not after I was hired and quit my other job.  As I said, good for you for being on the up and up and doing your job well.  And I agree, if I could quit MT today, I would run away as fast as I could!!!  Not only is your job thankless, but apparently OURS are TOO!!! Or at least I am given that impression but more than just ONE company!!!!!!
Glad to hear something good about them,
Be glad you didn't hear.
Why? Stella and crew are psychopaths. You will pay them to use their software license to boot, won't be included in your contract, unless of course, my experience with them has changed that. I have a horror story to tell with this company, believe me.

The most controlling and thorougly unprofessional MTSO I have ever had the displeasure to work with. No wonder they are advertising...they can't keep good MTs.

Glad to hear that. Welcome aboard!
so glad to hear that MTing has been sm
brought down to a profession of chump change by the newbies.
so glad to hear that MTing has been sm
brought down to a profession of chump change! You do the profession proud. NOT!
Glad to hear you are happy.
Maybe they save this behavior for their ICs. There is no reason for me to lie. They are threatening in the way they DEMAND that you work a set schedule, even though one is SUPPOSED to be an IC.

The micromanaging comes in when as an IC you don't log in exactly at the SCHEDULED time to work.

Bottom line, TTS does not respect the law when it comes to IC workers. Period. They will eventually be dealt with if they do not begin to follow the law.
Thank you! I am glad to hear that there is clinic work with SM

That's great - glad to hear you got response
I'm glad you posted a followup as I was wondering how it was going for you.
glad to hear there is still a good company out there...
I am glad to hear that, I start training with them tomorrow.
Don't sweat it. Be glad you didn't hear back.
I thought it was just me, glad to hear others aren't making much with all the junk you have to ad
So glad to hear all the positive feedback and I also accepted a position with them
I am glad to hear that a lot of money can be made with MT work. This gives me hope for the future.
Anyone that applied with Kathy Kirby hear anything yet? I am wondering how long it takes to hear a
response back
I am so glad, so very glad that finally I have reached
the age that if we are low on work, I just take off. No problem at all and love the extra day or so off. I now have worked since the 70s and finally made to retirement age, get SS plus other retirement money coming in and thank the good Lord do not have to worry about if there is work or not. BTW, when I worked inhouse never ran out of work ever, only when transferring out to company do they run out of work. If I had to raise a family now I would most certainly cross train on other accts at my place but only have 1 that I work on, by choice.
I said MAY NOT hear, didn't say you wouldn't hear. There is
a difference, and many people have said they knew they didn't do well on the tests, but still feel like they should have heard from companies and haven't. 
Hear, hear! (Or is it 'here, here?') LOL

Hear, hear! Read My Opinion's opinion.
Regarding Wondering's question, the company I work for is investing strongly in upgrading its MTs' and editors' skill levels (exactly what this says about need for us for ten years down the road I can't say). This morning I found an e-mail saying they would pay every one of us to attend an on-line class on making Expander macros to increase our productivity. Amazingly, I have to assume many employees were choosing not to attend the unpaid ones they had been offering...
we will be glad to use our
after we find another job
I'm glad I could help.
I am an MT, before I get accused of being in a managerial position. 
YW...glad I could help :)

I'm glad I'm not the only one
When I was hired two years ago, I gave a set schedule as an SE (with every intention of following it), but right from the beginning I had to adjust it because of no work being available.  Since then, I pretty much do what I want to.  Thank goodness I work for a good office and they don't bother me much, but all the talk about the changes coming are worrying me.  If they make me work a set schedule, I may just fly the coop, because I know there will never be work available during my shift.     
I am glad you think so
You must be in management and not an MT or ME.

I have never had so many problems with MQ since being transferred to Amherst. Yes, there it is again, AMHERST. I am exhausted after my 40 hour week and feel like I have been typing for 2. I just do not get anywhere. All crappy dictators, and jumping from account to account and running out of work.

You must not do acute care or as it used to be called, medical records, and you must have easy, easy reports. I am making squat for all my aggravation.

Even if the grass wasn't greener on the other side, I would never come back.

I am just holding on until I can find another job and I am looking.

I can't take this garbage anymore.

It is not worth my health, happiness or my family. They all come before this company. It used to be a good company before FRANK came on board.

Can't wait until I can get out of here.

Oh, do you have to work on Thanksgiving and Christmas, if you celebrate that holiday? Just another one more thing to annoy me.
well glad you think so
I want to say I am so glad that (sm)
I am not the only one who cannot stand the company. Every time I post elsewhere (will not say where) I got flamed for saying this is not the absolute best company to work for. Believe me, it is about the worst. Any time a company claims it is the best, that is a red flag IMO.
I am so glad....
I am so glad to hear that! I just got my work computer and am scheduled to start on the 30th :) I have been so nervous because I have had 3 different job offers and chose Spheris.

Glad it is not just me
I thought maybe it was me, but I know I'm able to do more than 150 lph. Been there since summer 05 and wondering how long to stick this out. Demo screens can really slow you down and no compensation for them either. There are so many MTSO out there, where to go??? I don't want to hop from this one to that one again and again.
I am glad I went with them too. I have been there sm
two years. The first year was a little rocky but everything is great now.

My account has only one ESL but a handful of ATROCIOUS American docs. I would prefer a nice accent to speed-demon mush-mouth at this point. I am glad I do not get them often or I would be bald from pulling my hair out!
You will be glad...sm
Pay is on time every other Monday, never had a problem. They are very flexible, as long as you work your scheduled day. I work whenever I want during that day. They never bother you once you're out of QA. Very nice people!
Glad to know this about them
Sounds like stinky pay IF and WHEN you even get paid. I tend to gloss over the too happy to be true posts. That bubble will burst in short order. Things for the realistic info on this company. DELETE!!
Glad for you
Sounds like good news for you and your friends and relatives, but have been here for awhile and so have some others and it has been the same with them also, not just me. Bounced from account to account. I just received an email saying, Congrats for saying what others past and present have not said. That is a fact and says something. I am not making this up to slam anyone. It is the truth. I am sure there are those that a happy, some do not know the difference especially the new ones. It is just a matter of time. Everyone has to decide for themselves, but I can guarantee many just keep on looking.
Welcome!! We are glad to have you.
I really think you will like MDI-FL.
Glad to help. nm
Glad I could help!
I just got my computer today. I'm excited about starting.
Glad to be gone

You are one of the lucky ones to have been paid!!  They like to play games with your money, first by holding it as in your case for weeks after you have gone.   She does not care about payroll being late - and actually sends out emails that she is tired of answering emails, and then her and her manager will literally turn off their IMs, or just not answer.  They are also famous for making you stick to a schedule - regardless if you are an IC, and has her shiftleads call and ask why are you not working - you are on the schedule.  Needless to say - this was a joke of a company, and many people that have gone are still waiting on that final paycheck.  Her favorite comment is it is company policy like she is such a big company, yet she operates out of her home!!.  And her so-called company policy seems to change along with her mood - which is daily.  If you need a paycheck - I would advise to stay away from them.  

Sure am glad
Since the administrator has now removed the ads until confirmation from the company, about the only thing I can be glad about is that my resume does have my name and phone number but that is about all, I omitted the name of the company I currently work for, offered to provide for reference at a later date and also did not list reference phone numbers or addresses, just available on request. Unfortunately, I am still naive enough to hope this is a legit ad!!
Am glad you like it there
Some have not been given the promises made. That is why there are some problems, re: vacation pay and I could go into more detail about what happened to me when I told them I was quitting, but no need to bring up old wounds. Obviously they are now starting to appreciate what they have. I worked countless weekends besides my M-F work because I liked what I was doing, but never compensated for it. That is all it would have taken is appreciation and compensation.
