Don't kid yourself, MQ posts or not this site wouldn't be going anywhere.
The company I work for said cable phone wouldn't work, just FYI.
I wouldn't work for less. What's the deal with this woman and where does she work?
I kind of thought this fit with all the posts about low work, no work.
MTs complaining they are not finding jobs, or if they are the pay is extremely low. Seems to be a lot of posting mostly about no work...

I was kind of curious where all the work has been going, much more so than the usual slow times...
Then you would have no life at all except work, work, work if you did that. I wouldn't do it. nm
yes and I wouldn't work any other way
have to have the flexibility to move around.  Haven't had any of the aches and pains in my arms and hands since switching from desk-top to laptop.  Plus, it allows me to travel a lot and still keep up with my work.  Luv it.
No, but wouldn’t want to work there
Did before and really not good place- I left with loads of others, much happier!
That wouldn't work. When I'm in a groove I

can make $30/hour, on a bad day $20/hour.   No one is going to pay an MT $20/hour.   The MTs have less and less power because the companies can always turn to India.   A company doesn't know from day to day what the work load will be like, unless they are doing overflow for an account and only take a certain number of minutes a day.   Most of the time you can guestimate, but then when delinquent letters come out you'll get at least another 100 hours of dictation.  

I totally sympathize with the MT who is struggling to pay their bills and who want to work but can't get the lines.  It isn't fair, but it is what it is.   I honestly don't see it getting any better unless work is brought back to the U.S. and then once again the American MT is in high demand.  I've seen many MTs say they work for 2 or even 3 companies so they can get needed lines. 


If you wouldn't have it except for work then I say write it off...nm
   Awww... they have to justify their paycheck too, you know, or else MTSO will think they don't have enough to do.  Remember, they get paid to nitpick. Makes the suits and power-that-be think they're actually earning their oats.
They told me speedtype wouldn't work either
but it does - you just have to have it open while you are working - it does not integrate into DQS - just sits there and lets you stuff it with expansions..;)
Great idea except you wouldn't get any work done!--nm
You're right! I wouldn't work for a company that SM
expected me to surf all over the world just because some prima donna didn't want to be bothered with proper dictation.
I wouldn't work as an MT for a lousy $7.50 an hour OR
I wouldn't suggest wearing them while you work.
Magnets and computers don't go well together. 
I would say NO otherwise our work wouldn't be in a 3rd world country.
Thanks, b/c 5 files at a time wouldn't work for me. nm
We are outdoor people so my suggestions wouldn't work

for you, although we have a motorhome so our camping isn't really roughing it.  

We did not take an extendend train trip, but did take an 20+ hour trip on a train.   We did not have a sleeper car as it was just as cheap to fly as it was for the sleeper car and we were trying to save $$.  Anyway the train had mice and a sewage problem and every time the train hit a rough spot that made it jerk the sewage smell would go through the whole train and gag you.   There were people in sleeper compartments that their bathrooms didn't work.   Our train originated in NY and was going to FL and we got on midway and all the better seats were taken.   The train also seemed to stop at every crossroads for someone to get on/off so sleeping was not easy.  

I'm a long-time Monrovian. Wouldn't work anywhere else. nm
I wouldn't worry about it, unless you work in a small town.
I can't see any big hospitals or doctor's offices going back to that.
The plug is for the monitor, pedal wouldn't work there. NM
It will not be moved; work-related posts belong here. NM
I work and do not have time to read such long posts, do you?..nm
If Tatum O was not a good actress she wouldn't have work no matter who her daddy was.
But you are right on one count. I would rather watch reality TV than bad acting and TV is filled with bad acting and bad scripts.

I didn't think Tatum did anything wrong unless you think telling the truth is a bad thing.
Sounds like a good place, where you work! BTW: the other 2 posts are not mine
Somebody is cloning my username now and posting. Guess on a board like this anyone can troll. So, I guess I will change my username again, so as not to be taken the wrong way. Wow, people really have a lot of time on their hands!
It wouldn't load with my Office. Somehow it wouldn't "read" my 2003 Basic, although sm
technical couldn't find anything wrong with my software. They really tried hard. I see so many people that like Escription, I'm sorry not to be able to use it. Hopefully I can get Office Pro on my next machine, and maybe use it then. I could upgrade, but I'm still not sure it would work.
Just do a search and read the posts. There are plenty of posts about OSI on this board. nm.
Wouldn't that mean that you simply wouldn't have to print out everything?

Um have you read any of your posts and the other posts? I think everyone DOES believe me..you

sure she wouldn't
I am sure that you will always have control over your daughter and her behavior, even when you aren't around.  And if she ever does act differently than you believe she would and has some serious consequences because of it, I guess you guys will just deserve it.  Right?
I wouldn't
unless you had been scammed by her. SOunds like plenty of people have already called, that have had real dealings. Up to you I guess.
I wouldn't sm

count my chickens before they hatch.  It's way hard to get a line count when you type a report or 2, sit and wait for an hour or 2 for another report to come up, etc. etc.  If you get 200 lines in a day at 9 cpl, why that adds up to a whopping $18.00.

Good luck, you're gonna need it.

I wouldn't, but that's just me.
There are many ways to serve one's country. It is not necessary to be in the military to assume a role of protecting and helping your fellow countrymen.

I would no sooner turn back if I had heard the story you speak of than I would if I was a soldier in Iraq amid all the suicide/car bombings.

It's all about character. A soldier has no choice; it's his job; he has to stay. If a civilian will take the chance of being robbed of his material possessions to help those who are fighting for mere existence, to me that is a true American.
I wouldn't let her do this!

JMHO, of course, but your daughter's life is worth way more than what it will cost you to pick her up each day.

New drivers, young kids, NO WAY; recipe for disaster.

My daughter is 15, and her friends will all be driving before her, and she thinks she's gonna be riding to and from school with them---wrong!  I know it's hard and this seems much easier, but right now, I'd keep shuttling her home! She's your baby, after all!

I wouldn't want him to just because of the
I am with the poster who says follow your instincts. You have the answers within yourself. Listen to your own gut feelings. You are there watching the situation. We will only inject our own beliefs, fears, and experiences. Plus we aren't there to see what's actually happening. You wouldn't post if there were not a valid concern. I wouldn't allow it just because of the germs. Even if I felt it was harmless, I would have him shower first before bathing with a female child. Just because of the possibilty of passing germs. I wouldn't bath with my daughter because I didn't want the possibilty of a yeast infection passing to her when she was an infant or toddler.

That's just my opinion, however. You really have to listen to your own voice on issues like this one. Best wishes.

I wouldn't
I went with them for a short period of time.  I asked for PT to make sure we had a "fit" but they said they only hire PT.    I took the FT and for the first 9 days had absolutely no work, one report per day.  They said they couldn't give me a backup until I was off QA, yet I couldn't get off QA until I had enough reports.  Also they promise a training bonus on the first check and I did not get it and had to write to the Attorney General.
I wouldn't buy anything until I know what the
company I work for wants me to have. You could spend a lot of money on equipment you won't need. Another thing you might need is a C-phone or something like that, but some companies provide those too. Just wait until you know what you'll need for where you work.
If you are IC, I wouldn't think so. nm
wouldn't let me put it on lol
100% agree is what that should have read
I wouldn't (sm)
My six-year-old still wears the Goodnites at nighttime.  I tried allowing him to wear underwear to bed, but it just interrupted his sleep and my sleep to get up change him, change the bed, etc., etc.  Sometimes boys take a little longer to be dry all night.  My nephew was that way and I remember growing up my brother was that way as well.  My honest opinion is why put yourself through lack of sleep for everyone involved.  My son goes to the bathroom right before bedtime.  Sometimes he wakes up dry, sometimes he doesn't.  I would be more concerned with staying dry and clean during waking hours.
No I wouldn't.
Wouldn't say that....
Guilt makes you do odd things and is usually where you trip up.
Thanks - I had tried that one, but it wouldn't
convert the disk for some reason. I think there is something wrong with the CD. I'm not sure.
I wouldn't use it.
It takes all of two seconds for me to type in the time I'm at if needed for a blank. I wouldn't buy software to do it for me.
I wouldn't. sm

I've been an MT now for a year.  I went to one of the big schools and I have learned so much in the year I've worked.  Really, you may feel completely confident and ready coming out of your course, but it is so different once you are really working.  There are small details of this job that just cannot be taught 'in the classroom'. 

Sorry, but it really is not feasible.  Even if you didn't mind taking a hit financially I'd not want to be responsible for the mistakes you will inevitably make as a inexperienced MT. 

Also, even at a lower rate I would think most doctors/hospitals are going to see your lack of any 'real world' experience to be a huge red flag. 

Another thing is that though I'm not running my own MT business, I'm guessing it isn't something you can just 'do on the side'.  If you can't quit your current job to work in-house you are probably not going to be able to have the time to run your own MT business.  If you are a sole IC for a doctor/hospital that means no vacation, no weekends, no nothing so long as that doctor/hospital has reports to be typed.  You'd be on call 24/7 for any stat reports, ect. 

My advice would be to REALLY think about what you are considering doing.

We wouldn't be
We could not go into their country and do anything - so it is doubtful that the shoe would ever be on the other foot. I had a friend who tried to get work in Mexico as an MT - but she found that she had to learn Spanish - so she gave it up and moved to Alaska. Eskimo transcription.
I wouldn't have known but...
My neighbor came knocking at my door after the first plane hit and told me to turn on my TV. Just as I did the second plane hit. I moved the TV to my office for the rest of the day.

You know what, though? My DH, who works outside the home, did not have a clue until I called him.
I wouldn't do it.
If you were looking, wouldn't you want to know
prospective employer? If you're looking for a job, you are interviewing them just as much as they're interviewing you.
I got it the AT&T DSL when it was still SBC. I wouldn't ..sm
have anything else. My internet has never been down for technical problems, only a weather-related ice storm that knocked out all power for several days. What I like about it is that you don't have to have a tech come to your house; merely make a phone call and a tech will walk you through your problem right then and there so no time is lost. Most I've waited on hold was a matter of minutes. My modem did go out about 1-1/2 years ago, but they brought a new one to my home and got it up and running the next morning, as I recall.

I have the most expensive internet, which is their fastest rate and wouldn't have anything else ($34.99). I would highly recommend it over any cable company! Good luck!
I wouldn't have said anything either...sm
Do we tell them how many employees they can hire??
