You may have had a good experience, but others are not and that cannot be denied. I was raring to start work and I got pushed away until... their loss, I might add.... I got another offer, a pretty good one at that.

Thank you, Admin!!! sm
It's not that I don't believe MQ MTs have just as much right to post here as anyone else. It's just that there are so darned many of them that wading through their posts was getting to be a pain.
I've been in admin before... (sm)

It was impossible to balance the accounts and keep everybody happy. Stuff would get backed up to the point that accounts were in danger of being lost. MTs would be hired. Dictation would suddenly slow down, and people would run out of work. Some would be out of work while others had tons of work due to individual ability to do various work types.

I don't think they try to overhire. Usually the people who recruit are told what to hire for. They don't have anything to do with setting the number. It's just a crappy field. Either the clients are unhappy or the MTs are unhappy. I'm an MT again, and I can relate to both. The field just sucks if you don't have a backup form of income.

The Admin is not the offshore
You have to have admin rights to get
What do mean by admin rights?
Do you mean whoever we work for has control over the line counting method? 
IP numbers can be seen by the admin BUT a lot

of money will be paid for the service of having someone's records subpoenaed. I have read this entire thread and I see nothing that anyone can really do.

IP addresses are not definitive either. Groups of people can share an IP address particularly on places like AOL and there are other companies that do it that way also, so someone would really have to go to lengths to find out the definite ID of someone. I don't believe I have read anything other than independent opinions presented on this topic.

These boards are to share opinions and not all opinions are fair, but this is the United States and we do have freedom of speech. Presenting an opinion about a company is ok. Libeling a company is not. I do not see libel at all in this topic.

I feel bad for moderate/admin
They remove them, but they don't really realize that the posts are true.  There are so many things that happened to me with that company that were bad.  If they realized how true most of the posts were, maybe they wouldn't delete them so often.  I don't know.
Thank you, Admin. I agree wholeheartedly. NM
Kudos to you Admin!! Ty whoever had the proof too!


Well, think about it!! They lied to the MTStars Admin.

Anyone heard of these people?

I fell for the first part of their scam.

Now, I am trying to get my money back. I keep getting the run around from these people about my refund.

I just want some information about this company because I am considering turning them in to a few agencies.

If anyone has any information about them, please reply.

I could use the state that live in, perhaps an address, name of a contact at the company, and a phone number would be great too.

I would really appreciate any help anyone can give.

If anyone is interested in hearing of all of the steps I have taken so far in trying to get my money back, just let me know. I will be happy to share.
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* 

You can email me at admin@mtstars.com
good advice from admin above
This is a good recruiting board.  Recruiters posing as MTs raving on and on about their company.  What snakes!
I am thinking they are disorganized and shorthanded with admin
That is the impression I get.... and they called and told me not to call back because they are constantly on the phone. okay so ? But ?
ATTN: Transcenders - Pls provide admin.
that Transcend is offshoring, and they will be dealt with accordingly.
cool board admin "stop the ...crap" nm
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.
Not true. This info is on the Company board per Admin's request.
It is all clearly marked "MQ" somewhere in the subject line or name.

The Main board is virtually free of the new MQ posts. Go back over there or just scroll down the page to where you want to read.

No one has forced you to read anything. Admin made a request that the new MQ info be placed on this board and we have complied.

You're not obliged to read if you don't want to.
Prove it to me then. I'm open for discussion. You can email me at admin@mtstars.com


Used to use this in a hospital setting, admin could change the number of characters per line (sm)
at one point they had us typing an 80 character line. Talk about zapping your line rates down. Of course we worked for an hourly rate so it really didn't matter, just management's way of pushing us to do more. They only required 800 lines per day for a FT MT so they were trying to get their moneys worth I guess.
I am not a hateful person but that person screamed at me for 45 minutes. sm
She said all transcriptionists are idiots.
Admin rights are rights to modify different facets of
that person go.
Since you are the person
who actually makes an offer to someone, you should have a method of following up with someone after a week or so to make sure that the new hire is up and running, especially after you have been notified that the new hire has returned all necessary paperwork. Your process sucks. period.
Cant you see that the person is already down?
Thats right kick them when they are down. Thats a great example. Get a life.
So they are the same person? nm
The only way a person would need SM

to have nice people to work for and only communicate with nice people is if they are in need of something they should have within themselves.  For me, my job is just something I do for 8 hours a day and whatever they have to say to me, fine, oh well.  It doesn't reflect on me whether people are snippy or rude, I just ignore it and move on in life.

It's just work, business.  Not my whole life. 

Yep. It also looks like this person is just
wanting to hear good things and forget anything else. Just wanting to hear what they want to hear.
As a QA person myself, 13.50 is too low
who was the person
Could you share the name or initials of the person. I would like to know if it is who is calling me too.
I really wonder if this person's--sm
initials begin with K and end with I, who used to post here and cause nothing but turmoil. Sure sounds like her.
Not the person above but SM

the person looking for the editors has made it a multi-board issue by posting on different boards telling people to go to the Job Seekers board to see what was posted there.  That's the only way I'd know what was going on.

As far as he/she being run off the boards forever, oh well.  Reputable companies post who they are and the conditions of employment.  We had another semi-anonymous person get help from at least 1 person on this site recently and the MT was never paid.  The MT has no way of contacting the person who owes the $ now.

QA person from, you now where!
Small company and owner is very nice, but the QA person was the absolute worst! Very insulting and humiliating. That is why I left.
Not the person above, but...
The pay is low and they don't pay for experience. Otherwise, they have plenty of work and are a very nice bunch of people.
well my tax person
said because i am in the 15% tax bracket, i should withhold that plus a little (my ss will be paid by employer). Figure 18% will do.
It happens with the job, not particularly the person as I well know.
in straight typing for the last 30 years at 3 different hospitals always made at least 2000 lines per day. Since outsourced now started at a company last summer and was getting around 1200-1300 a day, said no way and the work was not that hard. I changed jobs. Doing VR and straight now and averaging at least 3000 per day and very happy now. (By the way, with the low rates companies are paying, have to speed it up and go as fast as my fingers will take me in my 8 hr day to get that).
I don't think this is the same person. Please
be sure you are not trashing an innocent person with just a similarity in names. And the original poster is just ranting in generalities, but not same person you are jumping to conclusions on - not same name, and not same companies. Names are not the same as the person you are thinking of - just similar.
If one more person says...
Offshoring has nothing to do with cutting costs, but is due to the fact that there are not enough qualified transcriptionists in the US I am going to SCREAM!!! The more I see these things the more it infuriates me!
Try again not the person you think
Wrong person that you are thinking of. Sad if this happened to yet another person, I mean there is my friend and then there is the person you are talking about. If management said they could come back they should stand by their word. You just added to my position that even you, who are defending them, know that they are doing that to others, or at least one other that you know of. Just sad. You know my friend almost had me convinced to leave my current company. I am so very glad I did not.
I don't think it is the same person but I bet they ALL do it.
Are you the same person who...
always says, 'check the archives' whenever someone posts a question here? If so, I really wish you would stop it. If someone posts a question, there may be people here who are willing to answer, but you (in a way) close that opportunity for the person posing the question when you post things like this.
probably why the IT person was not much help, I don't
think they want to mess with another company's computer, nor the other company's programs, even though you were the author of that particular content.

If all fails - delet your list. why leave it for them?

looks like the only person
who has something nice to say about them has an Indian name.
You don't have one QA person, so while some are

tougher than others over a period of a week you are likely to have had them all.  I believe them to be fair, they do try to post links that will help you, and you can dispute anything you don't believe is correct - not with QA, but with MT supervisor.  They tend to be less lax if you continue to make the same mistakes and/or don't follow account specifics.  I know of one account that is difficult because of a high percentage of ESL and one account that is difficult because the quality of the voice files is poor.  I know one person who couldn't handle the high ESL account and another who says it really isn't so bad.  If you produce quality work, work your schedule, etc. they seem to be willing to work with you to find a good fit.

There are some things I would change, but overall very pleased and plan to retire with them. 

They do pay better than the majority of the other companies, benefits are much better than 99% of the other companies, I've never not had enough work and usually on OT most days.  They do pay for down time.  They don't offshore either. 

You are a mean person.
How to become a mean person
Mostly you need a personality disorder that makes it difficult for you to see anyone else's point of view of feel compassion for anyone who does not fit your pictures of how they should behave or ask. And you have to be willing to live a completely miserable life because bullying is the purview of cowards.
anyone know this person, ****
does anyone know of a ***** with tarheel transcription?
You know if this person cannot even

then that would be a red flag that most likely the work will be inconsistent as well as the pay.  If this person has such a great team, then she would not have to post like this in such a disorganized manner. 

I just read about this on the job seekers board, and it would seem to me that a simple job posting, and then having applicants follow simple test directions would have been a much better approach.  Not all business owners have the best business ethics.
