There are good points and there are bad and ugly points. Unfortunately, the bad and ugly get
deleted.  Just the other day there was info and it seems to be more positive.  Like any MT job, some love it, some hate it.  But, having been employed there, the bad parts are/were true.   The changes sound great but not great enough to make me change my mind about working for them.  I do say she pays well for the area.  She is one of the rare business owners who actually started out as an MT..I think that makes a big difference in pay.
ugly. nm
No, I wasn't trying to be ugly to ANYONE. I truly was
trying to make some peace.

Goodness gracious.

Sorry folks.

The good, the bad, and the ugly.
I just transferred a whole group of on-site hospital MTs to a MTSO (I'm currently a recruiter). The money they made was amazing, and was killing the hospital. They all now work for a national.

On the flip side, I just went back to work for a hospital as an MT, the job was advertised recently on an MT board. Great bennies, I know the docs already as it is a local account, great pay. They were once with two major national MTSOs, decided they could do a better job themselves...and from what I've seen, I'm sure they do.
Good, bad or UGLY
Geez guys, I see no work, slow work, and when there is work - "it's bad". What does it take to make you people happy???????
ugly names
I used to work with a woman named GayDonna -- yes, that was her REAL name!!!
What is up with that lately. It sounds so ugly!
Good, bad, ugly...
I've worked for several MT companies and have seen "it all" (no flames, I'm sure there are MTs here who have been working longer than I've been breathing). Anyway, have seen MDs who dictate every few words and expect us to fill in the blanks, had MDs who question in the beginning of the report "I wonder how many days until I get this job back, they must type them on the moon or something" etc.... Then there are the gems out there too, ie "I'm sure you can tell I'm dictating from my car, first of all sorry about that, but I'm on my way to a Steelers game, I sure hope you like the Steelers" As with any profession "Takes all kinds" :)
Star Jones gets even more ugly

Butt ugly comes to mind! LOL...nm
I dont think these are ugly but I'm so sick of
Precyse. Good, bad, ugly?


Kinda ugly?...she's scary looking...

She's way too young to have had all that work done.  My guess is it was a mistake when it said Kat's family and friends... apparently she doesn't have anyone except her parents and grandma!



Do not be ugly to people on their accomplishments. NM
Platforms - the good, bad, and the ugly!

Would like to know what platforms are user-friendly and which ones slow you down.  Currently working on one that slooooows me down so much!!! 

Well, Gretchen, I'm old and ugly, but agree...sm
Rude, cruel, insulting people definitely eat roadkill. Best to blow them off. :D :D
Its not that I'm worried about bidding, but if the seller is ugly in
response to neutral or negative feedback I don't wan to deal with them, I don't care if they have a 99% rating.  Sure there may be hundreds of positives, but it is their response that I'm looking for to see if I want to deal with this person/company.  
Oh, and to the smart-mouthed poster below trying to be ugly to
those who are wanting to know more....SHUT THE H*** UP. You're not helping anyone.

I had to learn how to use macros, word expanders, etc., to get faster and there is no reason why these MTs shouldn't be given insight, hints, and tips to do it either.

Go mind your own business and stop being a snotty jerk.
Fat can be lost but ugly is forever. It must suck

Do you have to wear those ugly black burkas?
that was just plain ugly, sorry I read that post (NM)
I have had the good, the bad and the ugly in QA people in the past sm
It shapes the way I do my job, on both sides of the equation.

Right now, I am teaching an MT to do acute care with my feedback. I must be doing something right (she is too and trying very hard) because she is progressing so nicely. She does rad too and she said that my help is making her a better rad MT as well.

I so rarely send anything to QA at my other FT job and I had to send one yesterday, the first in over a month! I was so p o 'd, but the doctor threw some obscure equipment at me and I had 7 blanks, but that was for only 3 words I could not document well enough to suit me. My favorite QA gal grabbed it and gave me some feedback on the words and she went on to tell me what a good job I did (not!) because she said that most MTs have 10 to 20 blanks for this same doctor. I almost never have a blank with him, but this one time...it was a complex lower extremity interventional vascular procedure and I am not up on the equipment for those just yet with the switch to cardiovascular from OP notes. I felt like a fool, but she was great.

I have some really awful ones and there is one in particular who comes to mind because of her extremely condescending and childish manner. I actually have the QA position for a gal who was fired because of a similar attitude problem.

As QA, we are around to be the MT's safety net. We here for an extra set of ears so that the document is as full and correct as possible. Providing feedback helps an MT so that the quantity of their work going to QA will diminish. If you really want a justification for your existence as a QA, it is in the number of blanks you fill in and low numbers of jobs you have to review. IT IS NOT a promotion! IT IS NOT job advancement! It is using the knowledge you have gained to help others.

I can sort of understand the attitude because MTs seem to be having more issues with quality than they used to, or so it seems to me. The quality most lacking is a sincere wish to do the job well.
No, don't! This is fun! If you go away, I'll be too tempted to go back up and read those UGLY
posts. I just know that then I will be rather more than irritated! If I read them...I can tell they're horrible...But if we're here, talking about warm milk, and who is who, and why is why, then none of us will have to go back UP and read those...other posts!!
Mine is my mother-in-law. She is so ugly sometimes and then acts like nothing happened later. We jus
It got quite ugly to the point that I removed the entire thread. We just all don't have
time to pick through and pull out the ugly posts, so in this case, the whole thread went.  Franky Boy has been banned.
I just opened the post regarding Jen having an ugly nose and there was the OSi ad. No hunt here. I
the post about Jen's ugly nose lol

I guess they are enjoying their ad campaign on here though trying to drive the moderators nuts
EEEEEEEW! He was ugly decades ago and now he's ancient and uglier!
Someone who unfairly grabs the easy stuff instead of doing the good, bad, and ugly,
I meant it in a good way, and I will not turn this into a huge ugly post.
I am not a "paranoid mass of jelly", for Heaven's sakes! But I have lived thru having neighbor children try to poison my puppies over our fence in similar circumstances - not identical, but similar.  These same kids used to stuff picked flowers in my mailbox, and I never knew how to take it.  I just asked that she be extra cautious. Obviously you ladies have been blessed with not being confronted in life with strange "encounters" like this - I have, and have tried to learn from it. There used to be no more trusting person than myself.  I have learned, though, to be cautious in situations like this - not paranoid, just cautious. Wisdom, some would call it? For what its worth, my sister is a psychiatrist, and she thought the flowers creepy as well, but in a different analytical light - with her mother's and sibling(s) death of late, and her expressing that she wanted the puppy killed, to my sister, she said they could be symbolic of flowers on a grave.  Not paranoid - she's nearly 60 years old and deals with school-aged kids on a daily basis. Her "job", so to speak. Again, probably a 100% innocent gesture, but to those of us who have had encounters with the "children from H*ll", it could be eery.  My post was meant out of genuine concern for Puppy Mom!

I meant I COULD NOT AFFORD TO BUY SQUAT for them. Give me a break. I am not going to Angel Ministries or anything else. And, you have NO idea how much I actually paid for my SUV. There are mini vans out there that take a lot more gas than my SUV!
Ugly, physically repulsive people with nasty attitudes have that effect on me.
Ugly, ugly, ugly
Emdat platform?? Good, bad or ugly? Any info is appreciated. Thanks in advance. NM
Yeah, no one has ever offered me more, even for ugly ESL accounts. One rate I guess is the standard
Just make sure it's a good fair rate, especially if you do pretty complicated work. There is no way I'd do less than 8 cpl for ESL but may think about it for clinic work. It just has to be fair, which is getting tougher and tougher to get in this biz. Rates get lower but cost of living is going up and up.
What an ugly thing to post. Your job could be outsourced tomorrow, sweetie. FYI...Job security
