    HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! To those of working and those of us not. (sm)

    I am up and at it early, having our Thanksgiving dinner at 5:30 so turkey can cook while I make some much needed Xmas money. 

    Hope you all have a good one.

    Thanksgiving week
    Please don't judge the company on these latest weeks. Docs love to go away on vacation during Thanksgiving because their children are out of school. They are like the rest of us. Except, when they get back they get delinquent notices and all of a sudden you are typing tons of reports to catch up so they do not get suspended. All will balance out. Especially if the company was highly recommended. Keep the other job for Christmas money, but I bet my paycheck (or at least a portion) that this next week and then after Christmas you will wish you had a break! No matter what you do, good luck and enjoy the holidays because when January comes you will probably be very busy at work!
    Hey! Too busy with Thanksgiving and company
    Still have to work on Christmas or Thanksgiving
    alternating years, one year Christmas, the next year Thanksgiving and that is in addition to NY Day and Fourth of July and Labor Day. It's depressing. Especially to work on Christmas. I worked on Thanksgiving and after that I said never again. I missed seeing my family and I live 2 hours away from where Thanksgiving would be celebrated. No way was I going to still be at Medscribe when it was time to work Christmas.
    How was everyone's Thanksgiving?? Ours was great!! Now onward to CHRISTMAS!!!!
    I hope all is well with everyone and that everyone enjoyed their holiday!  This is just a note to wish everyone good health, wealth and long life!  Live each day to the fullest as none of your tomorrows are guarantted to you!  And may each and every one of your dreams come true!  Take care everybody!  Hey RadGuy....where are you???  Haven't heard from you in a while!
    I think it depends on the account. I always work Thanksgiving sm
    Mem Day, Labor Day and New Year's Day and have 4th of July, Easter, Christmas Eve and Christmas off. This is what I volunteer to work, so that might be how all the accounts work. I do radiology so that is why we work holidays.

    I am very interested to see the list.  Thank you.

    Slow is normal from Thanksgiving through New Year's. (nm)
    If you are of Thanksgiving, you work Christmas and vice versa..
    Thanksgiving is weeks away, yet no work on TransTech this morning. sm
    I have 2 accounts, with no work on either.  I used to think they cared, but now I am not so sure. If there is no work now, I have to think the closer it gets to Thanksgiving, it will really be awful. 
    Sorry. No nerve struck. Just my bad post-Thanksgiving pre-Christmas stressed
    out mood.
    Litt to no work since Thanksgiving, slow time and overstaffed too????nm


    I didn't sign up to work Thanksgiving, but I will in the evening for a while at least. I heard s
    that so many MTs want to work the morning hours that there will be almost no MTs to cover any evening work. I heard like only about 1.2 MTs per account. If there is work, I'll have it to be sure.
    I encountered slow to no work the weeks preceding Thanksgiving and several days after but the past
    few days it has picked up. Can I ask which account/accounts your on? I think that makes a difference. Mine are part f the Escription platform. I honestly got really ticked a few weeks ago when we had no work and they were still hiring. For one, it's bad enough when we have to share some of our work with the Indians, but how fair it is to hire these poor people who think they are getting work where there is none.  It makes no sense to me either. Why not provide work to your current employees than drive them away by taking on too many new people.  
    OK, where's the moderator on this one?
    Not OK - I think you should be banned. This language is COMPLETELY uncalled for. Cut it.
    The moderator said....

    post nicely and all I read here in this thread are personal attacks....sure sounds and looks like stalking to me.

    Not that anyone asked my opinion and I'm just adding  my 2 cents after just finding this website 2 days ago.  All bulletin boards are the same - they get real nasty, unfortunately.

    Personally, I don't see how personal attacks on how someone left a former company is productive or conducive to learning on these bulletin boards.  Posting people's personal info on whether they were fired or not should also not be allowed.

    Please delete duplicate post. Don't know how that happened. Thanks.

    Has it been confirmed by the company on this board that they are offshoring work?

    I am still not sure if I should go with them or not. 


    To Moderator
    Is there any way to do a search on this board and come up with the more recent posts?  Whenever I do a search, I  come up with posts as of 7-8 months ago and then older, and I know there are posts from just a week ago.  Am I doing something wrong, or is there no way to include the most recent posts (up to within the last few days) in a search.  TIA.
    I'm sorry - I meant to post this under MQs forum - can you move please?  sorry about that.
    The moderator (nm)
    Half the board is taken up with employees and insiders' posts... but then again I don't really care :)
    Um, that's moderator... nm
    I feel this is an appropriate section for this because it is aimed towards companies that outsource but also includes political views to try and influence the reader to look for companies that do not outsource. I believe it could also be posted on a separate page to cover the political view, but this is aimed to grab the reader's attention with the aim towards American companies that do not offshore.
    Well moderator, I think she knows to look there, duh!
    She is looking for some recommendations of good companies. Geesh!

    Whoever this person is posting as SoftScript management and posting such derrogatory remarks about people should be banned from posting here.  If that person does truly work for Softscript, she is definitely hurting them, and if she doesn't, well....she is definitely hurting them.  I do not, nor have I ever worked for SS, but I find her comments to other people totally out of line and extremely offensive.  Please consider this.


    Now where's the moderator
    They've got another posting up there now looking for someone in their Bangalore office, which is a bit of a commute for a US based transcriptionist.
    Thank you moderator
    Thank you for the explanation.
    The Moderator said...
    that MTStars can provide the information through a court order.  Whether that is the case, I have no idea nor do you, I imagine.  Either way, the bottom line is that they apparently know who posted what and there is a lawsuit.
    Given the name Moderator...
    Wow! I must have hit a nerve with you. You are really bent out of shape about being told off, aren't you? You even went to the extent to E-mail someone and beg to have your post closed so you could have the last word. What a goof you are. Ha ha ha!
    Seems it's the moderator's perogative.
    After all, it's their board, not anyone else's. As long as it's done fairly and consistently for all issues for all companies, I don't have a problem with it myself. Even if it isn't, I have the choice to view and participate, or not. We all have that right.

    This moderator doesn't have to play by anyone's rules but their own, and the popularity of this board speaks to the success of how they've handled things so far. I've had a post or two pulled in the past and, in retrospect, I'm glad it was done. I'm not perfect, and at times I get angry at some of the ignorant, hate-filled posts. My posts have probably been pulled as a part of the whole hate-mongering post's thread and that's really just fine. If some information that was "valuable" is lost to the public at the same time, well, so be it.

    Also, sometimes "negative" posts not only are negative, they are downright ugly and nasty.

    I have to agree with a poster a while back that, if you don't like what you see (or don't see) on a given board, there are plenty of places to create one of your own.

    Mr./Ms. Moderator pleeeeeeze!!!
    Have you gone on vacation or just thrown up your hands and given up on trying to keep this crap off here????!!!!  Looks like things have gotten waaaaay out of control.  Guess it's obvious you can't get through to the people determined to act like idiots on here, so why try? 
    Huh? Moderator, what's your opinion? (sm)
    I don't see what's wrong with what I posted.  I didn't give out personnel names or account names.  I don't see the big deal.

    If it's improper, fine, delete it.
    Moderator: Can you require sm

    ads to give a company name as well as IC, statutory or employee status??  Would make things much clearer and simpler.  Thanks, MomMT

    Moderator - How can I e-mail you? nm


    I agree moderator
    The subject is off-shoring - a persons, race, beliefs, age, quality, experience, etc is not the issue. Stick to the point, I do not want offshore not just because I lose income, but because I do not want my information sent half-way around the world to India, China, Vienna, Mexico etc - The US needs to keep our earning potential, information, and growth within our borders - we do enough overseas and across borders for our foreign neighbors - technology, money, troops - I do not need them in my GYN visit too. So whether you are red, white, or blue, brown, yellow or orange - if you are a US citizen - I stand behind you, and want the work kept here. Lets effect a change, not animosity. One pays off, the other does not.
    It was removed by the moderator almost as
    I agree...moderator, what's going on? nm..
    Moderator, can you please email me?
    I just reported this ad to the moderator
    All job posters MUST post the company name according to the note from the moderator on the job board.
    moderator...just curious, but why
    was the rest of this post deleted?  I was hoping to get more info. 
    Moderator, please take note
    The jobs board is totally cluttered with Focus ads, breaking that 2 ads rule.  I understand wanting to keep the board full of ads, but they don't need to repost over and over.
    hey Moderator - INDIA has a job ad. NM
    Dr. Saroj Bobde is back on the job seeker board
    no they cant state the name because the moderator will take it off nm
    Dear Moderator..
    Unfortunately, that is the norm here lately.. I don't know how it got so bad here, but there is so much bashing, it is uncomfortable to post here most of the time. Just my opinion. I know that the political section has a ton of bashing and that the moderation is kept at a minimum but there seem to be certain posters who continually flame other posters- and they just keep on doing it. It isn't opinion it is flaming. My opinion.
    MODERATOR.......I realize all sm
    opinions should be welcome here, but LMAO is just cruel beyond words. Are these the kind of posts that mtstars really want on here? Just cruelty to people who are down and out?

    LMAO poster is a very cruel and scary poster. If you have any sympathy at all, could you please stop her?

    Moderator blues
    I'm thinking if I were the moderator of this board I would be ready to just call it quits. She/he tries to explain nicely that opinions and vents are welcome but that personal attacks and name-calling are against the policies of the board. Then within just a few hrs. there's a whole thread or 2 or 3 of the same crappy junk. It's obvious some posters have no clue about respecting other people, but they should at least try to honor the policies of the board. What part of agree to disagree is so hard to understand? And I truly believe there are those who come on here for no other purpose but to stir the flames. My husband visits a tech forum regularly and there is a 0 tolerance policy there. Offensive threads that break board rules are deleted immediately and the system works great because the forum is a helpful tool for those who visit it. It should be that way here too, but unfortunately it's gotten so bad here that it would be a full-time job for someone to try and keep the junk away. Vent and opine all you want, but please start showing some respect for the moderator's posts and the policies of this board. Believe it or not there are people who come here for information about companies rather than looking for a fight.
    Happy New Year. May we all have happy home lives (sm)
    and do whatever it takes to make our work lives work for us too. 
    Eyetype, if I were the moderator on this board...sm

    you would be banned so fast it would make your head spin. You are truly an unfortunate soul and I feel for everyone who you choose to inflict with your hatred.

    Would you say these things to these people face-to-face? If so, God help the world.

    unless you're a moderator/admin..sm

    unless you're sysops and/or can grab IPs and DNS, you can only SURMISE who is posting what....

    However, the moderators and administrators can tell for sure.... *S* 

    ADMINISTRATOR, MODERATOR, please explain (sm)
    Why does clicking on the OSi link say no offshoring activities reported after they have been banned from advertising on MTStars for proven offshoring?
