This was good. There is no time for tears, arguments when you are
I'd throw him out, change the locks, he'll figure out what to do.

Don't look back.
You are picking and choosing which arguments you make

When someone makes a point about family medical history going onto a child's records and possibly preventing that child from obtaining health or life insurance in the future, you start talking about identity theft, which is NOT the topic that person is talking about.

When someone talks about identity theft, THEN you start talking about how giving medical information about deceased family members could not possibly contribute to identity theft.

Stay on topic. Quit dancing around the point. Stop making vague statements about people being "paranoid" and "scared". Many posters in this thread have gone out of their way to explain exactly WHY they feel the way they do and do the things they do, yet you completely ignore that and say they lack common sense. You have absolutely NO rational basis for your arguments. They are all based on your OPINION that people are too paranoid.

When you can come up with some solid REASONS why people shouldn't be cautious with their personal information, maybe someone will be willing to listen to you. But that hasn't happened yet, and I'm not holding my breath.

Oh he reads this board alright. I used to post my e-mail in my posts.
I use to post on the offshore board a lot.  He took the liberty of writing me and telling me his opinion several times. I finally just blocked his e-mail. He reads here.
Request that they place a stop payment on the check, reissue, and mail priority or overnight mail
If they refuse or invent unbelievable excuses, you'll know you have a problem. If MY check was a week late, there are many months I would be in deep trouble.
I realize checks occasionally do get lost in the mail. If they are 100% sure it was mailed, then they shouldn't mind issuing another.

Be firm and be persistent.

Human responses states that they do not know of many problems because only isolated complaints are coming in.  Everyone with complaints needs to contact HR and follow it up with an Employee Complaint form found on the MQ QNET web site.
I have ATT/SBC DSL and have no complaints.

I have had on one problem with it.  For about a week, I would lose my connection for a few minutes everytime the telephone would ring.  I eventually called them and they corrected the problem the same day I called.  Other than that it has been perfect, nice customer service. 

I had Earthlink previously and hated it.  Customer service was horrible, foreigners everytime I called, which was often.

As I go. That is the only way. No complaints so far.
With all the complaints sm

about not making enough money (and I agree that wages are getting really bad), how many folks that are complaining have less than 5 years experience.  Five years is the minimum, in my opinion, that ANYONE should have before attempting to do any kind of MT at home.  It takes at least that amount of time to feel comfortable with acute care.  Even after five years, when you start working at home, by yourself, isolated from other MTs, it is very difficult.

Years ago, it use to be  mandatory you had 5 years in-house before a national or anyone else would hire you to work at home.

The "troublemakers" in this industry are the so-called schools who have come on the scene making big promises about huge yearly incomes after 3-6 months training!  It takes years and years of active MT to be able to feel comfortable working at home and be comfortable with all or nearly all work types. 

The attitude of not wanting to do OPs or other type reports, or ESLs or bad dictators, etc. etc is one of the things killing our credibility..  This is not about PRODUCTION!   This is about patient care!

If an MT wants to only do what suits that MT, i.e. certain work types to make more money, then the person is in the wrong business.  I am sure I am going to get flamed over this, but I don't care.  I am sick to death of hearing the complaining about dictators, job types, work hours, etc.  If you are a MT, especially IC, you work when the work is there, you get all kinds of stuff and you take the good with the bad and you work long hours.  Its a part of the job!

If you have less than five years experience and you are just starting to work at home, coming out of in-house setting, then you are a BEGINNING IC and you will be offered bottom wages.  But, if you prove yourself, hopefully, eventually your employer will pay you more.  If that employer does not, then you can go to another employer, with your experience and try to get more pay.  If you think coming out of school and demanding top wages or working 3-4 years, esepcially NOT in acute care and getting top wages is possible, it is NOT.

I am also sick of those knocking those of us who have years and years of experience doing what I call "hard time" in this business.  We have done it, we leraned our trade and we can make the money.  You have to come up the same way.

Now I will sit back and wait for the fall-out, I am sure it will happen!


My mail carrier just informed me that the mail is sorted by
prisoners as part of their work.  Now do you feel safer and more secure?  
Block her E-mail, return mail unopened

On AOL I can determine who I want to receive mail from and block those I do not  -- and if they are blocked  they get their E-mail back as being "undeliverable".  If she sends things out -- send back --unaccepted.  But to be simple just E-mail her back or call the recuriter if you don't want to deal with her directly and state -- leave me alone.  If she is in another state you should not be scared of her but you may simply have to put it out there in no uncertain terms.

I thought the complaints were what the
MTSOs were paying their MTs or "MLSs"; not what THEY were charging.  Most people have not known what MTSOs are charging any account.  Again, the problem has been the pay received by the MTs.  So you see, if MQ is charging 20 cpl and paying their MTs what, 8 to 11 cpl; seems to me MQ or any other MTSO charging those rates would have room to increase the pay to those who are making money for them, don't you think??? 
And they don't hammer you with complaints (sm)

because you typed "an" instead of "and"?

Guess I worked for some real b*****. 

My husband is hot !!- No complaints!
Now my first husband was another story. . . .
So far, I have had no complaints on my end or from anyone I am talking to. nm
Online complaints
You might want to review this site if you're thinking of having it done.

Not long ago nothing but complaints about no work at MDI-FL.
people, we see many complaints of dictators
that co helps biz deal w/complaints...
Thx for the link, but I noticed this on their 'About Us' page:
"It was established to help companies meet government compliance requirements and safeguard corporate integrity."
They note on another page that they were established to assist companies handle complaints and compliance issues.
I wonder if there is a site that lists contacts that employees can go to with violations; I'm sure that the Fed Govt has departments for different violations where employees can go.
I thought that Medicare and Medicaid used to have a program similar to the IRS' program wherein they reward people who bring violations to their attention by giving them a percentage portion of the amount recovered, including fines (which are STEEP for companies who get caught violating laws and regs.)
Just curious. Would love to have contact info for reporting different issues that they would also assist the 'little guy' right wrongs against them...

relative newbie, but no complaints here

I started out brand spanking new in October 2007 working at home.   I hadn't even finished my on line program yet, but I needed to pay the mortgage.  I got very lucky to find a company fairly quickly that would hire newbies.  Pay sucked, but I knew that going in.  I didn't know how bad it sucked at the time - I was just ecstatic to have a job.

I knew then and I know now that I'm never going to get rich in this profession.  I knew at the very beginning that I was not going to make a lot of money right away.  I didn't.  I was lucky if I averaged $5 an hour.  I also knew that I had to stick with it and get my experience in with a company that was willing to work with me and then I could move on to another, better paying job when I was a little more comfortable.  I did a lot of research about this going in and if there was a company or an on line school that promised a lot of money right off the bat, I skipped right by that one.  I'm sensible enough to know that's a load of horse hockey.

I love what I do.  For the most part I enjoy the posters on this forum.  Even the Negative Nancys.  That just makes me work that much harder to do well so I can prove to myself that it can be done and I haven't made a mistake in learning how to do this.

As to starting a separate positive only forum/board. It can be done.  It's fairly easy, as a matter of fact - and free.   It would be separate from MT Stars, which means this thread and/or message is probably going to get poofed. 

I'm happy to set it up, though, if y'all are serious.  Feel free to e mail me.
