That person sounds like a whacko. Aren't you glad -

you WERE offered 1 cpl? That way there was no chance you or anyone else would ever accept a job working for her. Even if she paid 12+ cpl, I think it's pretty much a given that the aggravation of dealing with someone that rude and hostile every day would be no where NEAR what you were getting paid. I also have to wonder what she has to stoop to charging her client (would rather doubt there's more than one!) in order for them to put up with her as well.

Be glad you aren't in construction, where
weather delays and permit delays and error delays can shut things down for weeks! If you can't cope with 1/2 a slow day, you need a job that pays hourly.
aren't you glad you didn't quit? NM
Then YAY you! This conversation does NOT pertain to you, aren't you glad!
I thought it was just me, glad to hear others aren't making much with all the junk you have to ad
Aren't you a positive person? I suppose you work in the office at HIS. lol nm
Okay! Sounds like you are an unhappy person.
lol...yah, person sounds kinda mad
So, are you her spokes person? This sounds like YOG and Carol Cirullo all over again! nm
As an ex-Keystroker, this behavior sounds like the norm. It is convenient to blame the person who
Do you think all the headers and footers aren't getting counted? Lots of places aren't giving
I think it is one person. I had a few print outs from a few weeks ago and this person even capital
I have had a positive one. I have been with Keystrokes for 3 months and am very happy.

I printed them to show my manager but she told me that there are few bitter people out there and no one can do anything about them. My manager said that everyone can tell that it is the same few over and over again, for Keystrokes and a few other companies as well. Time to move on Ms. Anon. I cannot think why a company would go through the trouble of getting IDs and getting you installed just to ignore you after that. Doesn't make sense, does it? Are you sure that't the whole truth? You keep saying truth but it sounds fishy.
Exactly what I'm talking about RUDE! You are a very unhappy person. A happy person does not
respond in such a way!  This is the reason SS has such a bad name.
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 am not a hateful person but that person screamed at me for 45 minutes. sm
She said all transcriptionists are idiots.
sure sounds swell. Sounds like 2350 ln/day @ 4 cents/ln=$90./day
in order to figure how many line needs to be produced to make $500 per pay period. ie, how many lines an hour needed per 8 hour day --at your rate.

So say $450 a week would be $90 a day.
For example, if making 4 cents a line,need 2,250 lines a day, 281 an HOUR (to listen through and edit) to make this great wage of $90. a day FOR ALL THIS SAME SKILL, TO KEEP UPDATED WITH CHANGING MEDICAL COMMUNITY. nope Better at Jack-in-Box Pass it up.
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!
Sounds like it and it sounds like you must tell them when they will be and no change them. Wonder
what you do when there is no work. Well, there will be a lot of problems with this whole plan if they dont get things straightened out with this no work situation.
You aren't the only one, believe me. NM
Aren't they the ones who are
supposedly looking into buying Heartland?
aren't they all going to be
under regional supervisors within a year??? If you can get yourself under the northeast regional supervisor, do it. She's great.
Oh MY aren't you a gas
Why would you care. Bitter? I got a great job by not being hired by them with innumerable benefits and assigned to a nice a/c with great potential.

Don't get my way - do you mean expecting to be paid on time is being bitter and spoiled? What planet do you come from? LOL

And yes SD is said - it's not my fault they auto cap it - boy do you have issues!!!! sd is standard shorthand for said my friend. can't imagine even noticing something like that.
Uh, no. They aren't doing that

The letter I received a few months ago when I cancelled my membership said something quite different.  It had nothing to do with keeping the jobs US based.  It was all about quality healthcare documentation which is important; don't get me wrong there.  However, there was NOTHING in there stating anything about keeping this work here at all.  Instead it was all about the global marketplace and a cop-out.

I personally feel that the bulk of the healthcare industry knows cheaper doesn't necessarily mean better or even close to what is expected.  I don't think all of the jobs are going to disappear.

I have written, called and probably annoyed my senator and any other government official in my state about outsourcing private healthcare information.  India, for example, does not have stringent laws about private information like we do. 

We do have a personal responsibility though.  I have brought this up on other boards, but we need to ask our healthcare providers if their back office is handled here.  If not, choose another provider if possible.  Of course avoiding purchase of everything that comes from somewhere else is virtually impossible, but there are lots of other things.  This may also sound mean, but if I get on the phone with customer service somewhere and realize the person I am speaking with is offshore, I have my call transferred.  Nothing against the person, but I am not discussing my personal account information with someone who is not 100% required by law to protect that information.  Period.  If enough people take the intiative (not saying in this particular way), the gov't and other organizations won't have a choice but to listen. 

Outsourcing globally is not the trend right now.  I really think pulling together can stop it from becoming so.

Aren't they like about $40,000 ???
My car's OLD - only kind I can afford.
And just because you aren't a fan sm
doesn't mean it is a bad company for everyone.
Aren't we all?
Now I know you aren't exp'd - there is SM
no earthy reason to BUY A PDR to look up drugs.  Caught again.
They aren't even in the US - ya think?? *-D) nm
You REALLY ARE NEW aren't you?

Snort...  How naive. 

Look, the really sad thing is that work has really picked up at TT and if whomever the fool is that decided to file this lawsuit had just waited a bit, things on MT Stars would have died down.  Have you seen any negative postings about TT recently?  No, because there is WORK!! 

If you let your anger rule your head, you will show yourself for the fool that you are. 

Sad, truly sad.... 

Obviously, you aren't one of them...
If you had the slightest legal knowledge, you would know that any person can file a lawsuit against anyone -- the claims don't have to be true. Again, enjoy your Law 101 class.
If you aren't happy
why don't you leave?  You seem to know so much, so you must work for OSi.  You musn't be able to get another job elsewhere.
If you aren't using an expander just think how
many more lines you could produce with an Expander and then that would be like gettin a raise.
Why don't you just go back to MQ, they aren't that bad
I was full-time with them and quit for reasons not related to all the new changes, but after thinking it over, I decided to keep some part-time hours because I enjoy the work.

A little snippy aren't we?
No they aren't. They are looking for editors

Is there a little emoticon for putting a finger down one's throat and retching?

Maybe we aren't talking
not sure what kind of rate could result in $4.25/1000 words...but I'm doing much better than that...so far.
I have worked for TRS and while they aren't the
worst company out there, I certainly would never recommend them.  Any time people can't figure out how much their making, it isn't an ideal situation.  The Trinidad issue and how it was handled is another strike against them. 
They aren't outsourcing. nm
Wow, aren't we cynical!
I am working for TT because a couple of TT employees took the time to answer my questions about the company and it sounded like it might be the place for me. I am very glad they were so helpful, because now I work there and I'm very happy. I haven't found any drawbacks to working there. If the companies you have chosen to work for have not turned out well, I'm sorry, but don't assume they are all the same. It is absolutely not fair to try to run down a company's name when you admit you never worked there. I do work there, and the company hasn't asked me to advertise for them. I can't believe you would judge people who go out of their way to try to help other MTs find a good company.
You aren't getting paid? nm
You aren't missing much with sm
Transhealth. Chartmatrix stinks, doesn't integrate well with Word at all (cannot use autocorrect), crashes alot, and hard dictators. Their test dictators are actual doctors on their system. Management and office staff turn over quite frequently. Transolutions last I knew started out at 6 cents a line. You may want to go IC if you don't need the benefits.
Aren't you clever...
I didn't call *myself* 'garbage' - and you know it, but I guess going for the cheap shot is the best you can do?

Your experience may have been wonderful; mine was the worst. The person who originally asked about the company needs to hear both negative and positive feedback.
True, but most of them are, aren't they? They are for me.
Apparently you aren't going to let this go!
Tricky: I asked a while back how far off the line counts are in your mind - 2% 1% 10%?

If its a small discrepancy you might consider dropping it, if its a lot you could find a different job if management can't explain it to your satisfaction.

That said, I'm totally in your corner if there is serious discrepancy here, but so far you have not elaborated how much you think the counts are off.

Aren't we all. Why do you think someone should just hand
My my aren't we judgemental
Well we aren't staying
a very large portion of the MQ staff is leaving, the majority of which as I can guestimate have been with MQ for many, many years, made them what they are. I myself have 12 years in with MQ and am done in 3 weeks.  Don't get snotty with us...
Aren't they out of Texas

You aren't going w/ Amphion?
Or are you a different Rainbow
When MTs aren't working
1. Burnout. It's quite common in this field, due to the intensity of the job. Anyone with any real experience in this field knows this and takes precautions to keep it from happening. Intelligent employers make sure it doesn't happen, recognize it when they see it and work the MT through it. If not, good MTs are lost. Many people supervising MT now are not MTs and are completely ignorant of the job.
2. Getting mostly crap work or unfamiliar work on an ongoing basis. If bombed with crap work without compensation for known crap work, MTs get the above burnout, pound their brains out for nothing then give up.
3. We are people, not nameless machines. Lack of adequate rest or reasonable time off without penalty is self-defeating. MTs that give up their entire lives for their jobs and then make less than 30K for it eventually slow down. No incentive to keep going. After two years without a mammogram, dental appointment, a filthy house and my family having to make appointments with me to see me, I found myself in a vicious cycle that was not worth it. These personal things have to be done and eventually people will do them when they get fed up with self-neglect.

And that is why some people aren't working.

why aren't you working?????
too busy reading everyone's posts?????
aren't we ALL recruiters for the
company we work for. Obviously we like where we work since we are employed there....and don't we all then recruit others who are in the job market....
