Discussion boards!! (can't resist, lol)

 and other distracting Internet surfing, neglected art projects on the desk behind me, sunny outside, new powder on ski hill, new German Shepherd pup....

Should just post all their open positions in one post and only be allowed to post one of those a day
So, is the company in the discussion below

that is going to VR and dropping the rate from 10cpl to 3cpl MDI-MD?  I am dying to know what they are going to be paying for VR.  If they are dropping the rate that much, with their stellar reputation for caring about their transcriptionists, perhaps all hope is lost. 

Can somebody please spill the beans!

LOL, we just had this discussion thru e-mail at my company yesterday!...sm
Sometimes they get so confused down thru the list, that I am no longer sure what number we are on.  Number next would be great, we can count!  I always thought they said the numbers to keep track of what diagnosis, medication, etc they were on.  Guess not?? 
Please post religious discussion on the Religion board.
is this regarding a specific post?
Not inquiring about a specific company. sm
Just trying to find out how many reports on average are to done during the course of a day.
I guess I should have been a little more specific in my post. sm
the only rental property that doesn't house family members is the one not paying. My husband and I have bought property for family who couldn't otherwise get a house on their own. We have huge hearts, we really do. We give our percentage to the local church, every paycheck, and if we do make a cash or lump sum of money in investments we either invest it some more or give, give, give to unfortunate family members. We are very happy to do that. LIke I said, we are able to give to our familly and friends in need and we love doing it. We feel we have been blessed to do it.
If you read my above post, we always have a cushion for emergencies and daily living, but we had to write a big, unexpected check this time. Hence, me asking for advice on cheap food, etc.
As far as my SUV, it is a used, 2002, bought on ebay (we have 4 kids and an economical car just won't fit all of us), so that is why I drive an SUV.

Sorry for those of you I offended. We do have a lot, more than others, but we also give way more than anyone we know, too. We know we could sell a house to make money, but that takes time. The reason we have these homes is: 1. To house unfortunate family members. 2. To sell when each kid goes to college for their college fund.

I'm guessing you are talking about a specific company here
because it's definately not like that where I work...
I don't get paid for headers and footers, but I don't have to type them and they aren't deducted from my pay either. And I didn't have to wait six weeks to get paid...only two.
Do you have a specific company you'll be working for?
They should be able to give you specs.
Does you company require a specific number
of lines per day? If so, what are they?
You can post a message for posters to email you, but you cannot name companies.
Due to potential liability we must limit what can be posted.
Thanks, but it's a company computer and we not allowed
to do anything to it. Any updating, etc. is done by IT only.

Any other tips or thoughts on my original post appreciated.
They are not allowed to post here. It is removed. (NM)
Is there a TV board or are you allowed to post
Probably the same wimp company I'm with. My title is QA, but I'm not allowed to do my job!
Know what I mean???  Yuck...
What EXACTLY are we ALLOWED to post on the MAIN board?
Just about every other post has been saying post this on this board or that board....well what goes here?
Are we not allowed to post jokes on the board now?
It was a simple question, actually an oxymoron, "a casket coming with a lifetime warranty?" 
Are we allowed to post links for other sites?
I thought we could not do that?
I guess I'm not allowed to post the link.
WHY is this person allowed to post on the equipment board?
I would like to post on these boards. Can anyone help?

I am totally confused as to what section of the religion board to post on.  There is nothing for general Christianity or perhaps Quaker pursuasion, etc.

I also have no idea what I am, liberal or conservative or what.  I liked it better when you could have a real discussion.  We exchanged ideas.  I know sometimes they got out of hand, but I don't like any of these boards now.  They are just plain too confusing now. 

Sorry you feel that way, but we have never allowed offshore MTs to post on the MTStars website.

This is not something new, it's been this way since the beginning.  The ONLY difference we made was to allow US based MTSOs that offshore the ability to post job ads because they hire US QA Editors.

I think it's because most of the ones who post to the message boards
You need to post your resume on the job boards. nm
umm.. are we allowed to post pictures with the direct link code listed?
because I did and it won't show.. the image has not been moved or deleted.. it is a little gif of MC Hammer dancing to Grammar Time. Darn.
Post your resume on all the various job boards and keep checking the
help wanted ads.   There are companies who will hire from posted resumes that don't post jobs.   Of course you can be more productive with just one speciality, but it is also extremely boring.   If you are happy with your current company and they have other specialities ask them if you can do something else. 
Doctors sometimes will post on the state boards, though
usually they don't post, but ask other doctors who they use.  If they do post it would most likely be in your local classified ads.  
Search the Job Seeker's and Company boards. Also mtjobs.com...nm
Read the company boards, posts about them today.nm
It's ok to post most topics here now except for the few boards to the left. Cool, huh?
I've had that cappucino, too, and it's great!
Why am I getting asked for email confirmation to post on some boards but not all of them? nm
Night Owl - Yours is the most worthwhile post I have ever read on these boards
When working from home, whether dealing with clients, MT management, or QA personnel, you can just feel the negative vibes coming off of people over so little.  It causes a very stressful environment.  Maybe that is where some of the MTs on here develop that attitude, I don't know.  The awful insults, comments, and degrading people on here is absolutely unbelievable.  Just because you have 15, 20, 30 years of experience in this field, that is no excuse for rudeness.  Once you have insulted someone to the point I have seen here, your MT experience means nothing to me, and if I were a management person and knew this about you, you would not work for my company no matter how perfect your MT skills are.  This says a great deal about you. Perhaps people in general will write things they would never say to a person face to face.  I happen to be a very mature, very experienced MT.  I feel like my knowledge should be used to help someone, not degrade them.  I hope the MTs who have posted above on this comment will continue to call these people out when they post these horrible comments.  Even if you are right (which seems to be the most important thing in the world to them), there is a way of stating facts, opinions, and comments that you have yet to learn in dealing with people even if it is not face to face.
Well from what I read on the boards "Busy MTing" can afford to post but you need to sm
go look in the mirror and ask yourself why are you so miserable?
There is NOTHING to post! The boards were trolled for a long time by the lawyers AGAINST MQ, looking
for any lame info in a very unprofessional (not to mention unethical) manner.  They used us and left. Now the law suits are in the "discovery process", where both sides are gathering info, where they can then decide whether to proceed forward or not.  No news at all for us MTs.  Again, the $$-hungry lawyer(s)? were all over this board months back, stirring up the pot, begging us for info, and then VANISHED!
Signed! You should post this on all boards, including Medquist, where I'm sure a lot would sign
I was hired for a specific account/specific

work type.  I've learned the dictators, done the macros, now  they need to hire new MTs because the workload has increased, so they switch me to a very difficult account, doing everything but my normal work type.  Does this make sense?  I'm productive on my original account, not productive on new account, plus I'm majorly stressed. I do ESL 90% of the time but the new account is really horrible, not only ESL but they mumble and the quality of the dictation is bad.  If you took a new hire and put them on this account and they stuck it out, maybe they wouldn't think these dictators would be so bad.  I've talked with the MTSO and they say they'll switch me back and that lasts 2 weeks and then back to this horrible account.   It would be different if they called and said we need you to do this account for a couple of weeks, but it doesn't pay enough for me to do from now on.

I understand this is the way the business is and my griping probably isn't going to help anything, but I just had to get it out.

I am sorry. I meant boards not broads. Now those darn boards have disappeared again.
Post about Companys on the Company board, post job ads on the Job Seeker board
TO ALL - Please see post on Company board
that was posted by the Administrator regarding mudslinging.  Don't just read it. Live it!
Well, if you want our opinion, you should post the company - sm
so that maybe we could help you. A lot of people do not report anything to the BBB no matter what kind of practices are going on with a particular company. They just do not have the knowledge to go that route. Nor do they have the knowledge on how to go about handling bounced checks, etc. But that's another subject.

A company does not necessarily have to have a website. I personally do not have a website, but I am bombarded with work and phone calls and emails left and right about my transcription service. Personally, I would never put up a website because potential clients do not know who I am, so how would they know to go to MY website. They get my name by word of mouth.

So post the name, and maybe someone here can give you feedback.
post this on the company board here....nm
You should probably post this on the Company Board
it's okay to post company name, per moderator.
They have a post on the company board about benefits, etc. sm
I do ortho and love Keystrokes. I know that they are known for radiology, but I have plenty of work, a GREAT manager and a steady paycheck. My sister and daughter also work for Keystrokes and they are clinic and hospital work. They are both happy as well.
I believe a post like this belongs on the Company Board anyway.
don't post your name or the company you work for, no one will know your identity. SM
why did you even bother to reply so negatively. If it bothers you to answer this poll, than ignore the post. Negativity is so unattractive.
This post belongs on the company board.
