    Please see my question on company board -posted on wrong board
    It should be posted on the Company board, please.
    If you are the OP, you also posted this on the Company board
    As being a position with Keystrokes. I didn't think KS hired ICs?

    Color me confused but...?
    At the top of the Company Board is posted ....s/m
    ' Don't make your decisions based on someone else's recommendation - Administration '
    We have not moved this topic to the Company board. Perhaps you posted it
    there initially thinking it was the Main board.
    All word questions need to be posted on the Word board. Please use the correct board to post.

    Just remember that it is not the people on this board who short changed their people and ONLY after
    caught did they (after they were suied) make an effort to look good by sending out these checks. Now, think about this--had they done this many years ago when they short changed everyone, that would have been honest. Does it not bother you that only after they know they are under the gun that they are doing this to try and make themselves look good?

    I used to work for MQ and I used to like what I did. I never can say I really liked the people that I worked with, but I really think they had some of the best accounts that I have ever come across in the MT industry. I loved working the major teaching hospitals that I did, but that certainly does not mean that I enjoyed being cheated out of pay.

    So chill already. People have been cheated, were lied to, and only AFTER they got caught have they tried to return some of the money they robbed us of (as well as cheated their clients).

    We all have reasons not to be happy with this company and you go off on us because we are complaining of things like small refund checks of a penny or a few cents or a few hundred dollars and NO WAY to even check to find out if this is correct?

    I am sorry you are unhappy all of us thinking that there is still a dead rat in the cellar, but there is still a dead rat in the cellar and nothing will bring the dead rat back.

    I would hold no love for a company that I know willingly cheated the very people who helped THEM make money out of their hard-earned money.

    Go take a deep breath and think about that.
    Definitely one of the other board's people who refer to those on this board as "holy rollers,&
    Now go ahead and post your reply - I know you're dyin' to!

    Are you the one who posted on the Ask the Dr board?

    I go to "The Stop Smoking Center" for online support.  I quit for eight years, but this past 13 months have been so crazy that I relapsed exactly one year ago.  I've been peeved at DH and stressed over a lot of stuff, so I lit up one night while out with a friend.  I quit again for three months using Zyban, but relapsed yet again after stopping that.  I do OK during the day with not smoking, but DH smokes outside at home so it's tough to stay quit being around him.  I just keep making excuses to not quit.  That means I'm just not ready yet.  People handle their emotions and stress fine without smoking.  I handled everything fine for eight years without smoking, and those eight years were pretty hairy, too..  For me, it's a question of replacing my bad emotional crutch with a good one.  (Exercise!)

    Good for you for making the decision!  You can do it!  Google the support board I told you about, and I'll probably be around here if you want to buddy up or anything.

    This is posted on the job board:

    ...7 cpl for a 65-char. line with room for increase. Please send resume and place "ESL MT" in the subject line. These are very difficult accents...

    Is this serious??  THAT is why there is nothing left to this profession.  Applying for and accepting jobs like this is what has been the kiss of death for MTs.  I hate to think what they would pay for non ELSs - 5 cpl?

    I have posted this before on another board
    My DH cousin jokeingly said to be a Transcriptionist all you have to do is know how to type and spell. I said "okay, spell pterygoid muscle." After a long blank stare he said, "There is no such thing". Like I said he truely was joking but so many people think there is nothing to this job.
    Look on the job board, someone just posted a weekend only job - nm
    On another board here, I posted a news
    article which actually identified this New Zealand company as being owned by a HUGE American national....everyone laughed at me and said this was old news - offshoring. But it was sure news to me that it was my company and now in New Zealand. Personally, I'd love to transfer there. Lots of nice sheep and trees.
    Silly me, you posted t his on the Gab board too - sm
    I got confused!!!!!
    sorry...posted on wrong board
    Someone posted abbreviations before this board went
    bonkers and I had copied it down. When site went down, so did my copy. Does anyone have a good site for abbreviations? Thanks.
    I also posted on the political board, but -
    I did not refer to Obama or McCain and the political side of it, I am interested more in how it is effecting us in the United States. Everyone else is posting here about their jobs and that is what I am talking about. I don't care about policies right now, I am wondering how every day life is going to change.

    And, no, I am not being rude, just explaining myself.
    Just posted on the Political Board
    a long rant on this - please refer to that. But also see this website.

    It's time to take a stand MTs!

    And its gonna kill you to post on the Company board rather than the main board?
    This post should be made on the Company board. See that board. Thread locked.

    read recent posts on this board and on the company board
    One guy posted on message board, saying he was on his laptop in the car.
    He said they are doomed if they do not open up the highway going the opposite direction, as you said. And, fuel is an issue, needless to say.

    Mandatory evacuation should have been ordered soon, they are saying, as opposed to voluntary.
    Okay, Top Ten Reasons Why... posted on comedy board

    This one is good.

    I believe they are posted on "Job Seeker's Board"
    Posted on Coder's board, but cannot get a reply
    This is an awesome link... Thanks so much, I posted this on another board (sm)
    Was referred to this Tips & Techniques... No clue what it meant... This explains a lot. Thanks so much.
    Bloopers can be posted on the Comedy board.
    Hi Donna. I posted to you on the autoimmune board

    I'm afraid if you posted anything on here, people will just start jumping -
    down your throat. People on this board, unfortunately, are notorious for that. Hopefully, you are working for a better company now and not dealing with the MQ problems and accounts.
    May I ask if the experienced people have been getting any replies to their resumes posted on here
    within the past few weeks. Just curious as to what type of responses you have hda. Thanks much.
    A company posted 8-12/cpl not long ago..
    anyone remember the name of the company or have the link to the job post?  I remember seeing it, but cannot seem to find it now.  Thanks!
    Administrator I posted my name for looking for an MT job on your job resume board and I dont see it
    Re above message - just posted on technical board. Need help badly.
    As always, political posts should be posted on the Politics board.
    Posted another quick and good one on recipe board for you.
    Posted on the Gab Board about name suggestions for my cookie business if anyone would like to help
    I'm not sure how busy the Gab Board is compared to this board, so I thought I'd post here as an fyi. Thanks for any help :)
    Sorry to disappoint you but I've never posted on the newbie board!
    I meant to say Job-Seekers Board, not Company Board.
    No mssg.
    I agree. And as someone posted on another board here, it's hard to care about it when the dictat
    Being these are pretty darn important documents, it's equally as important for us to get it right as it is for them to slow down so we can truly actually hear what they're trying to say. It's a joint effort that often falls short on their end for whatever reason.
    On job board. Some goof posted 11:50 hour for 2 years experience

    To the service who posted a job ad on the Main board, the reason your post
    was removed is because all job ads are to be posted on the Job Seeker's board. Any "well-deserving MT" knows to look at that forum for that "chance to work for an excellent company and make an excellent line rate". Feel free to post your ad there.

    Thank you.
    MT Week prizes are posted on the Main board. Watch for them and then
    follow the directions to enter. If you see a post that has a winner announced beneath it, that prize is no longer available.
    I posted that higher earners at my company SM
    are bringing home that kind of money. The key word, though, is earners. Not "job." Pay is on a production basis, and those high wages are a result of base pay + incentive bonus pay x 40 hours a week of actual keyboarding, 50 weeks a year (or close to). If they work less quick or less long, the money drops.

    So, do I feel sort of jealous because working 35 hours a week doesn't earn that much? No.

    I am envious of those with a natural talent for fast keyboarding, though. I'm so bad that in the past I would never have imagined myself doing work based on typing; that would have been a really dumb move. :) I have to work hard to keep my production up and have invested long hours developing my Expander skills to try to compete, but any of them who also work smart still outproduce, and outearn, me easily.
    COMPANY INQUIRIES belong on Company board, please!
    This was posted earlier today on the Gab Board and now I am reading this statement from this Pakista

    The mtstars.com domain name has been hijacked, so this website will probably go down and then come back up with old information (not current posts). We are setting up at mtstars.net and taking legal action to regain the mtstars.com domain. Please do not post at this site further as the domain has been taken over by an offshore entity.

    Thank you for your loyalty over the years, but know that we are not gone. We plan to have mtstars.net up and running very soon ...

    Heads up warning! A company called DictaCall posted a classified ad

    Heads up warning! A company called DictaCall posted a classified ad
    here yesterday claiming great cost savings. After researching the company, I have found that the company is overseas in India and is offering the identical rate structure as another US voice service.  There is absolutely no cost savings whatsoever and anyone using their voice system would be calling into a toll free number where the voice file would end up on a server in Calcutta, West Bengal, India. 

    What does this mean to you, the transcription service?
    1. HIPAA compliance is compromised.
    2. Your client information is at risk. Offshore entities can come in try to undercut you and take your business.
    3. In case of outage, you're stuck if you can't get in touch with technical support.

    I could go on, but I think you can probably see the same big problems that I see.

    You put them on the company board, not the main board. They are still there.
    Some people are new to this board
    and confused.  Every heard of a NEWBIE needing help?????
