Filed complaint with Better Business Bureau against MTSO
for nonpayment after 90 days. Requested payment multiple times to no avail. Nothing but empty promises. Has anyone ever been successful getting paid after going through the BBB?
Don't know what you're complaint you're making with this post. sm

You stated in your original post that you don't want to work weekends or odd shifts. What is your definition of an odd shift?  Second shift?  Third shift?  Sounds like you want to work M-F on days.  Sounds kind of rigid to me. 

Personally I like second shift, so everyone working days means more work for me! 

You're welcome. Glad I could help. nm
You're welcome..glad to help. NM
You're quite welcome. Glad I could help. sm
Congrats on your job offer!
You're welcome. Glad to share.

They will be glad to know you're thinking of them - go for it.

We're glad we cheered you up!
to know I am not alone all day anyway!  Other than my cat of course, but she sleeps all of the time.  But, my house comes alive after 4 p.m. when the hubby and kids get home.  I'm with ya' on trying to stay productive during the day, but sometimes it just doesn't happen and that's okay too!  HAVE A GOOD ONE!!  Enjoy! 
We're in the minority but glad
to see I'm not alone :)...
You're very welcome ~ glad it worked! (nm)

Nothing at all, glad you're NOT complaining which what most people come here to do.
you're welcome; glad F-lock key worked for you
Glad you're both okay! They say X-mas lights are a cause of lots of fires.
  Guess I'll keep better watch on mine!
I have never filed BK, but I would
do everything possible to avoid it.  You didn't get in debt overnight and you aren't going to get out overnight.  I believe it is morally/ethically wrong to file  BK because you managed your finances poorly.   I've made some bad financial choices in my lifetime, but it was my fault and my responsibility to pay them.   
I have filed not too long ago due to
unfortunate circumstances. Employer never did a credit check and due to needing some time to get things together let them know thatI was filing etc. They were very kind and it has never affected their attitudes towards me etc. Still have a great relationshipt with them. If you need to go ahead and file. I dont think it will affect your employment opportunities at all. Good Luck !
depending when you filed,
I used to Efile with them every year, and it was always the 2nd Friday from when I filed that I got my refund, but if it was towards the end of the week, thurs/fri, it may be the 3rd, which would be about 2 full weeks.    Good luck!
She hasn't filed for a divorce yet -

Because the state she lives in does not recognize legal separation, she had an agreement drawn up by her corporate atty.  This agreement handed the house (quick claim deed) and business over to her, while her "future ex" draws his pension and moved to warmer weather (California).  This all happened when things were friendly. Now she wants a divorce so she can get on with her life (with her new beau she is buying the house with).  BAD idea since she has not filed for a divorce.  Anyway, thanks everyone.  I think I'll be visiting her in jail.    

And if there were charges filed and case goes
to court then it would be beneficial to have "rape" documented.  I still can't believe that anyone thought it was necessary to change the wording. 
I filed in February and had mine within
OK! I'm glad you're back down here. Now don't go back up there and read those evil posts ag
Okay? But I have to leave you now, sadly. Thousands of noble dictating doctors are anxiously awaiting my help with their "dictations"....They're all loading up on chips, drinking lots of soda so they can burp, and then have to go to the bathroom...You know the routine! Off I go to earn some pennies!! But, truly, I am thankful that I have a job!
Bankruptcy is not that bad- filed earlier this year and
bought a truck 2 months ago and I am currently working with Lending Tree to buy a house and hope to close in the next month.  So there is life after bankruptcy.
student loans can be filed on after 10 years
of no payment. I did it. Unfortunately.
I did. I never have regretted it. We filed 7, I beileve. All unsecured debt was wiped out. Kept my
I filed for an extension and paid nothing until August 15th. No penalty for that, just interest. nm
This is my exact complaint

The looking up of addresses is ridiculous. I don't care HOW fast you type or HOW many macros and shortcuts you have, nothing will prepare you for that! The platform is user friendly where I work also. Most of the time with this company, I'm making less than $10 an hour because of this... and this job is my overtime job!

It's a small MTS and I really don't want to work for a national (from all that I hear on this board), so what does one do? How does one find the smaller companies to work for?



You are correct. If you have a complaint about something sm
they will tell you to go find another job. Communication with them is the pits.
Ridiculous complaint?

Busy, you should really try to be a little kinder.....or read her complaint a little more closely.  I think her complaint was not about CONSTRUCTIVE feedback.  If she gets hard copies she can't read, what good are they?  Just how ridiculous this QA thing can get; one of the editors in a company I worked for corrected my "40-year-old black female" to 40-year-old Black female."  No problem, if that's what they want, that's what they get.  I corrected my Expander to "Black."  Editor #2 comes along and corrects me saying "black or white" is never capitalized.  I fired back a very disgruntled e-mail and said editor #1 had corrected me and that I KNEW black was never capitalized but if they wanted it capitalized, fine with me but somebody needed to get their sh*t together and figure out what they wanted from me.  At least with that company, editor #2 had some sense, she sent back a very nice e-mail saying that to appease editor #1 to go ahead and capitalize it until I was off QA and then do it whichever way I wanted and in the meantime she would not count me off for it.  At least editor #2 had some sense but ridiculous?  YES, indeed. 

Busy, if you're working for both MQ and Spheris, I assume your experience is about the same as mine.  I worked for MQ and for Spheris when they were Edix.  Once I was off full edit (in a very short time), I never heard anything from either company QA again so I assume they were happy and I went right ahead doing my best.

Then it's already gone, why post a complaint?
I'm perplexed by this.
biggest complaint
would anyone else say that the biggest complaint as a Transcriptionist would be leg cramps and back pain?  and what suggestions would you give to help?
I ain't never heard this complaint before.

Complaint? What about a lawyer?
But why do you need a sample of a complaint? Write a letter explaining the details and mail it to the administrators of the hospital and copy it to the same people at the headquarter address (CEO). Ask for a response and mail it certified with a receipt requested.
Legitimate complaint
I think you are cheating yourself by not keeping a tally of the lost lines .. open a word document on your second screen and copy and paste these lines each time .. takes a few seconds and you need to be paid for what you are being asked to do .. otherwise, request a reprieve from this guy. Venting is one thing and it helps a little but cold hard cash actually speaks back to you!
Definitely not...how do you know if it's a valid complaint?...(SM)
This happens very often with abuse claims. A case is started, the claim is false, someone's reputation is wrecked, and it costs them a fortune in legal fees to restore it. If you are worried she is not getting help or advice, the only discrete way to find out is fake a spontaneous meeting and get into conversation with him/her and go from there. You could never let it be known that you read her/his records...records that she thinks are confidential. (Boy, are a lot of people in for a shock.)
My only complaint with mine is that...
my 2-year-old located the playboy channel (that I did not even know existed) in my car. Not such a big deal now, but I wish there were a way to disable it because someday, he won't be two anymore. Also, it taught him to scream the F word over and over and over again.
How to file a complaint for services....please sm
I'm not sure if this is the correct board. I was wondering if anyone knows of a site that I can get a sample on a complaint that I would like to file to the administrator of a hospital. My mom has non-Hodgkin lymphoma and during her last 3 visits at the same hospital, they gave her the wrong medication. This is the medication that she has a severe reaction to. She has hallucinations, toxicity, etc. to this medication. She is in a different state and I would like to file a complaint to the administrator to prevent this from happening again, as she is in and out of the hospital. Thanks for the help.
She worked all those years with no complaint.
You want us to have "O" work? They would track that complaint in a heartbeat.

communication and reality.

Talk about your drugs or your dinners.  Pass over MQ.  We won't mind a bit.  Our lives are rough enough already without biting comments.

We are trying to dig out of the quagmire MQ/Philips has put us into.  Like I've said, MTing is no longer a profession or can be considered a "real job".  At best it is pickup work or sideline extra non-necessary money because one certainly can't depend on the money.

Work is not saved for certain MT's. I hear same complaint
Chief complaint: Breathing. (just had to share that with you all--nm)
File a complaint with the attorney general
Easy enough to use but keystroke lag was my main complaint. (nm)
I called HR and I did not know you had to follow up with a written complaint. Is there an email
address for written complaints at MQ. The HR person sounded all disgusted and I am sure she has been getting tons of calls.
how to file a health insurance complaint - any hints?
Background - I had to have radiation treatment for colon cancer and for the most part charged everything on my VISA.  I have all the VISA receipts.  Two office visits I wrote separate copay checks, which have cleared my bank.  The billing company for the oncologist says I still owe $20 copayment which I absolutely positively refuse to pay.  I have faxed to them a copy of all the VISA receipts and have spoken to the billing office and they have receipt of the two checks so they have receipts of all my visits/copays.  My insurance company says I only owe a single copay per visit so if the billing company says they have received the copayments then I have fulfilled my contract.  So who do I complain to?  It's bad enough to have to go through radiation, but now I'm getting burned again (LOL - punny punny, gotta laugh) because of their inadequate billing system.  Grrrrr.  I am so incredibly mad I feel like, go ahead, turn me over to a collection agency and MAKE MY DAY!!!!!  Anyone else go through this rigamarole/nightmare and who did you complain to?  I want people's bottoms to get waxed on this - I have spent literally hours on the phone trying to clear it up, not to mention the cost of mailing/faxing/etc.  Thanks in advance.
Go ahead and file a formal complaint. Then it is on record this dog is a hazard and if it happens
Will filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and District Attorney do me any good if a sm
I live in a different state than her.  Also the amount is less than $100.  Thanks.
The MR reports were being filed. Referring physicians/medical care providers reports were not.
This is a hospital radiology department with in-house MTs and a clerk who is in charge of the report distribution.
Glad I could help and glad you got your setup going. nm
glad to help, glad it worked!
For Pete's sake, you're not terminating a pregnancy, you're just typing a report after the
It's already been done before you even hear about it, and NOTHING changes regardless of whether you or someone else types it. Sheesh.
It's not funny when you're on a board where language is one skill you're selling.
Hope you're gonna have a glass of wine while you're relaxing

in your spa goodies. Congrats!
