Dear MT friend. Did you forget you posted this this morning? I would consider this negative.

I do not understand why all the MQ MTs continue to get all riled up and make fools out of ourselves.  If you have been with MQ for anytime at all, you should know that any major changes made, you will be advised! Especially if it affects your pay, production, etc.  Apparently, policies vary from office to office, so what is going on at one office may not pertain to your office.  If you have a question, the best place to address it is with your TC, not on this board, where you get answers from God only knows who! And no, I am not MQ management, I am just an MQ MT, but a happy one. I work for Monrovia, as many of you all do, and never has a policy been changed without my prior knowledge.  so please, people, quit making fools out of us and get a grip!




Found out from Spheris about that Indian ad someone posted

Hi, group.

I am sorry... I cannot find the thread on the Spheris-India ad that had several of us upset a couple days ago. It was about an ad found at: http://infiya.blogspot.com/2007/02/spheris-medical-transcription-company.html

I shared that site and my opinion with other MTs on another message board. One of them contacted Spheris about it, and I wanted to share the response they got:

"Thanks very much for bringing this to our attention. Please rest assured that Spheris is in no way associated with this blog/web site. The images are outdated and were used without our permission, and the text is indeed atrocious; again, Spheris has no association with this posting.

Your message indicated that perhaps you questioned the validity of the posting, and understandably so. In fact, our internet filters have the site blocked and tagged as "fraudulent/phishing," so it may make sense to run a scan on your computer for Spyware or other malicious software that could have been installed by the site.

Obviously, we value our reputation across the industry, and these types of unauthorized representations are very disturbing. We will get to the bottom of it, but please do forward anything else you may come across that appears suspicious.

Oh, I found it really creepy when you said you found the flowers not so skillfully arranged on your
steps, and from your own flower bed.  That's what I was worried about, having gone thru some psycho kids myself with my pups.  Someone's been in your yard and in your garden and at your door without your knowledge.  Its just creepy to me, and I'd still be very, very careful.  Especially valid sounded the other MTs warning you about potential fake molestation charges.  You just NEVER know nowadays, and these people have already turned on you big time once. Luckily (though I don't believe in luck), you had it on film to save yourself and your puppy.  You might not be that lucky next time, and the whole thing just sounds very unstable to me right now.  I know you feel sorry for the little girl, but probably the only time I have ever made BAD decisions regarding my life is when I felt sorry for someone, particularly kids.  My son even has an evil kid in his life, but one who has a million reasons for sympathy, and I was saying how we should "be bigger" than the situation and invite this kid over to play.  Thankfully, I regained my sanity long enough to remember - ever time I have done something like that on a personal basis for someone just because I feel sorry for them AFTER horrible behavior, it has always been a disaster... Be kind, but you don't have to risk your family again. Be kind from a distance.  Its sorry she went thru this horrible experience, but YOU didn't cause it, and its not really your problem.  But it could be your problem if this kid acts out in your life.  Know what I mean?
in the archives for SS
and we will see how jazzed you are. Line stealing, lying, demanding, worst company out there. Been there, done that!!!!!
where do I go to get to archives?
I thought if you did the search above using the MTStars option, that was the archives??? LOL

Sorry I'm no help.....
If the newbies are making $7 and not admitting it..shame on them.  We all had to start from somewhere.  Moreover, you people with your smart-butt replies to honest questions make me sick.  What's wrong with a polite reply, say, something like, We just discussed that recently.  Why not access the archives....etc....but NO, ya gotta have a wise-crack answer.  Shows your mental age real well.
Don's use the Archives, just use the
"search" box just above the postings, not the one at the time that you have to check web or mtstars.
I checked the archives and there isn't much on TRS.
do an archives search

They totally suck!  Very unprofessional group of people.  Surpised they are still hanging in.

read the archives.....they do
it was posted in the last couple of weeks
If OP had checked the archives on any of these
companies she would have found all the info needed.  I've posted in minute detail many times about SS when asked, so the information is there. 
search archives.
Search the archives for yourself.
Did you check archives? It seems like I saw something about
them within the past 2 weeks and it wasn't good, but I can't swear to it. 
OTI. The best. Check archives. nm
try searching the archives

This has been discussed several times in the last few months.  You should be able to find some answers there.

here's one fave from my archives...sm
i had a young neurosurgeon dictating an extremely complicated brain surgery while on his cell phone in his sports car...all of a sudden i hear the engine screaming (sounded like a ferrari!) and him saying, "sh**...I gotta make this light, hold on..." which was followed by nothing but ENGINE noise for a few seconds, then a brief pause, and he calmly continued dictating his complex report...talk about multitasking...i'll never forget that one. :)
Thanks will search the archives
did you run the company name through the archives
here?? Problems like this usually have a history, and a long one at that.

Try the archives for this. Not too long ago
there was a discussion, not sure what board it was on though.
CHECK the archives on this.
thanks - did check archives, but

did not really get enough good info to make a decision, so am looking for any other MTer's who have had experience with these. 

Please help....everyone always says "look in archives" BUT...
when I look in the Archives for let's say Amphion....it only brings things up from 2007? Explain this to me.
Check the archives
HUGE discussion that lasted for days just a couple of months ago on this very subject. I think there are even links to a website regarding unionization of MTs, if I'm not mistaken.

Get some coffee and be ready to read for awhile; pros, cons, neutrals, etc., it's all in those threads!
How do I search the archives? sm
For instance, I try to find info on TTS in New Hampshire and I put it in the search box at the top of the page and click "mtstars" for searching rather than search the web. I get only stuff from 2006 when I know there is more recent info. It happens to me with everything. What am I doing wrong?
I think I found it, found multiple recipes with the same
exact ingredients so I figure this must be it. 
Click on the See Archives link above.
Try searching the archives. Some of us get tired of

answering the same old questions for people who can't be bothered to research what we said about that exact topic only last week.  Besides, only the people making big bucks answer the polls.  You don't see any of the newbies who are only earning $7 an hour admitting to it.

Nevermind...looked in archives...sorry.
Search the archives - lot of information nm
Check the archives and then RUN FOR YOUR LIFE
I have been reading in the archives about expanders

I have gotten the names of Smart Type, Instant Text and Shorthand for Windows...  I would like opinions on these if you have one, and I would also like to know if I can use one program for both my desktop and laptop, or if I have to buy the program twice and enter all my expansions twice?


research archives here on board...nm
OP--Just did a search in the archives. Vista
Check the archives on this company.
you must be new it these parts. search the archives. besides that we can't afford to QA QA.
We're on production. You?
I can go into the archives and get into the other boards but I notice MQ is missing. Has this been
taken out and maybe this is the problem.
Search archives. I was told personally
that they still owe some MTs back pay for months and months.
ASTAT Transcription--Can't find anything in archives
Any information on ASTAT Transcription?
Maybe searching internet and newspaper archives - sm
for any kind of stories related to identity theft resulting from offshore medical (or other) records is a start. Another angle would be to look for info. from editors on specific instances (Pt. privacy respected, of course!) where offshored or even US bargain-basement transcription came back with errors that could have caused injury or legal action.
If you check the archives you'll find
this same question has been asked numerous times, but basically most have felt it a waste of time and wouldn't recommend them. 
Search the archives box at the top of forum pages.
Any opinions on Crescendo platform? Not much in the archives. thx! nm
Check company board for archives.
