Send them an email to ask and see if it comes back. nm
they email you some voice files to type and send back
Does anyone work for J&M? Michelle doesn't want anyone wasting her time SM
according to her job posting if you don't want 7.5 cpl.  Wondering if that is always how it is over there, no time to talk...gotta type, gotta hire, gotta fire

I work there, but cannot send an email.
How can I help you
one line for listening to work - internet to send back.
yes, you are wasting your time with them.
The human resource person that works there is beyond pathetic. Because of the rules of this board, I am not able to go into it further, but let's just say that I used to work on the inside at their office. I left, along with 5 others that worked INSIDE, to go work for another company.
I'm not wasting my time then (nm)
Please tell me, am I wasting my time?

I have been looking for clinic work for 2 months now with a U.S. based company that has employee status, benefits, doesn't offshore, and little, if any VR.  Am I going to go blind looking or does this kind of position no longer exist?  I have over 10 years experience, tired of testing and never hearing back (I know, they are being swamped).  Still . . .

Depressed doesn't come close to describing how I feel.

If there is hope, will somebody please throw me a bone? 


You are wasting your time and energy!
There are jobs being off-shored in almost every industry imaginable. Call customer service or tech support for any major company, and you are bound to be speaking to someone from a different country. That is the way it is and that is the way it will continue to be now that we have worldwide communication in mere nanoseconds. You can do whatever you want, but nothing you do is going to change anything. The Internet and the telecommunication industry have created a worldwide workforce and it is here to stay!

As far as quality goes, have you ever seen some of the reports transcribed by citizens of the United States? The quality of the reports I have seen is appalling! Martians could probably produce more accurate medical reports than many people on this very forum can produce.
Try telling Spheris instead of wasting your time with us
You dont have to explain anything to anyone on here. I would take these great points that you have had and tell them that you are in the process of looking for another job and maybe that will scare them into giving you a raise.

Telling about it on here really wont do anything unless you talk to Spheris about it.

Good luck! It does look like you deserve a raise, but I think most of us do too.

Would like to know to before wasting time on transcribing tests.nm
i think the opposite, give the boot to those who are wasting everyone's time and just don't ge
the quality dropping also drops our pay for good MTs who care about quality.
Plus time-wasting instant message harassment
yes, justme, please save us from wasting our time on the likes of YOU!
stay home and type your 50 lines an hour and have a twinkie on me.
phew...i'm glad it wasn't just me, no more wasting time on this!
You aren't wasting your time, you're investing in a potential "yes!"
As to why you don't get a response, it might be for one or some of the reasons below, or none of them:

a. You don't meet clearly-stated qualifications. I delete every resume or application that doesn't meet standards required. If you can't follow instructions, don't expect me to take time out of my busy day to spend time on explaining this to you.

b. You're an Indian pretending to be an American. Again, I'm not wasting Keystrokes on you.

c. Your application is filled with errors. Maybe the dead silence from recruiters is a message to go back and review what you've put out there.

d. Maybe your application got overlooked. It has happened. Email the recruiter. If you don't get a response, review a, b, and c above and e below.

e. Maybe the recruiter is swamped. There are days when 10 hours will fly by and I've hardly had time to breath. There are applications to look at, resumes to review, tests to score, interviews to schedule, paperwork to complete, interviews to do, reports to file, fires to put out, and someone has to beat the tech people/MT supe upside the head to get them to call an irate MT, who feels that YOU are responsible for her every woe and calls 6 times a day to tell you about it.

From a recruiter POV, don't put your experience on page 4 under everything else you've done. I don't care that you work in the church nursery, or that you drive bus, or that you swept floors at Mitzi's Kut n Kurl. Don't make me wade through all that to find out if you can do the job I'm trying to hire for. I suspect I've tossed good resumes because I don't have time to read someone's life story before getting to the information I need. I also don't want to know your parent's names and professions (why do Indians do this?).

So, if you don't get a response you can either call or email, or just move on. It's not necessarily a rejection of you, but rather the reality of a busy society.
Has everyone heard back from Keystrokes yet regarding the email we received a while back?
Just wandering why I haven't heard any response yet.
Hey OrthoMT.. tried to email you back but the email was returned as undeliverable..
Basically, this is what I'd like to know.. You can email me the information if you like..First off, are they hiring for ortho? and what is their scheduling like, FT or PT, IC status or employee etc. I would like to find a company that is pretty flexible. Also, what platform do they use? I have worked at some like you were saying, took forever to get the line count and I want to work 8 hours and be done. Oh, do you have benefits, and what are they like if you have them? Thanks for any information you can give..

pay on time direct deposit, work usually plentiful, recent management changes, email me if you want

to ask specific questions and I'll try to answer them.

I sent them an email back in August and never heard back sm
Is this company on Long Island? I checked out their website and even tried calling once. Were you successful in contacting them? All i know is that the company is owned by some doctors.

Did you have to send them back
Just asking.
Do you mean you send it back to the MT?
or do you just give the website with feedback?
send me an email
I may know of a place for you
Send an email and ask
someone in the office who does the time sheets.
I always send an email sm
and ask all those questions before testing.  If they don't want to give me that info before hand, they aren't worth it.
I think there are 2? send them email and ask
.Just put you message in the portion where is says Apply Now (or did you see info elsewhere?
It's always best to just send an email and let them know - regardless what day.
If I send you an email to let you know
the person you think you are talking about is NOT me, then would you post on this board you made a mistake? I would be more than willing to do this. I am not an owner, I am not a boss, I guarantee you you do not know me. Want to take me up on this or go ahead with posting false things?
anything you need....send email. NM
send me a private email
I don't discuss this company on the board and you will find few who do.
Send me an email and I will answer you :) nm
How is this better? I do not want to send my email address to anyone as sm
I end up on some strange lists when I do but I really am interested in Keystrokes. I have heard good things and bad and have weighed it out but this kind of cryptic message intrigues me. I just know that whatever happens, I am happy to go with a company that does not outsource and is very open about being against it. I have been burned by two hospitals and two services with offshore transcription.
To MT at Home - I tried to send you an email
but the delivery failed. Of course, I'm very interested in replying to you, but just do not know how.
Debbie - please re-send the email
Maybe you should send AA an email informing
One answered below. Otherwise--I'd send an email see msg
asking who they were before I sent a resume.
If you send an email and it is not returned as (sm)
undeliverable, would you kindly pass the email on to me? Mine just came back as undeliverable. Hmmmmm. Feeling not to sure about this place......

Thanks in advance.
Why not send this to her email directly?
I think you should take this to her via email. Its easy enough to create an alternate ID so you would not be identified if you are trying to be anonymous.
Pumpernickel, could you send me an email too.. sm
I am the original poster and would love to hear any other information. Incentives would help and might make my decision to stay or go a bit easier! Thanks.
I could send an email saying how I love VR
I have seen reports of mine transcribed by humans which have errors on them. I am glad to be using VR so still want to send emails?
I simply send back a reply to
all political emails to ANYONE that thinks I don't have the intelligence to form my own opinions and say return to sender.  Some have definitely stopped. 
have tons to share - send me email
acute care or radiology?
Lol ! How in the world are we supposed to know who to send such email to ?

We do not know the account supervisor nor anything!  Strange . . .

We have been told NOT to call the office nor email for the last few days because . . . I did get that email !  Convenient when there is no work, isn't it?

I'd tell 'em, 'From now on, send me ONE email/day -
And I'd turn off the IM if they abused it like that.
I not able to send an email to you, info not available on server.
send em this open letter in an email!
I worked 2 weeks at Transcend for 2 weeks, didn't know this is what was being hired to do. I quit when I realized what an absolute mess this was to completely completely reword the ENTIRE report for pennies. What a good deal for THEM. NOT ME!!!!
They did send the reports back to me. I guess I figured they
knew what I was going through and would understand that it would get better. They tell me that the account requested me off. I find that hard to believe as I have never heard of such a thing in 15 years of MT.
Yes I send the feedback back to the MT with the website provided..
that way they can see how easy it was for them to do the research and they can fill in the blank themselves, rather than being lazy and having me do it for them...:)
Send me an email and I will respond. I'm packing up and getting the**** out of Dodge. nm
Find the root file and send by email? ...sm
There should be a directory for it - that's what you will need to send to the tech for conversion. Good luck!
