    cherrypicking co-worker issue (meant to post it on this board instead of MQ board) sm...

    I need opinions please...I work on a very small account with just a handful of ladies.  Because of the nature of the software (trying not to get too specific here) we can see who is working online and what reports they are working on in real-time...

    We have one cherrypicker on the account.  Instead of using FIFO method, she retrieves the reports by author ID - usually picking the better dictators of course.  She knows I busted her and she did admit to it in on our work e-mail (not too bright) which I am saving just in case she gets out of hand - so far I'm still able to make money since really most of the dictators aren't bad. 

    But every night it's starting to wear on me since she's screwing up turnaround time.  I don't really want to cause a big uproar being that it is such a small account and I need to work with her almost every night usually one on one.

    What would you all do?  I want to handle this as delicate and professional as possible because we can't really afford to lose anyone on this account.  In other words, I refuse to stoop to her level by cherrypicking right back.

    My boss has asked me several times why so-and-so does so much more than I do...I just bite my lip at that point but one of these days I think I might explode and just open up a can of worms....

    This site first came to my notice because another board
    Sure enuf, when I checked in, it was NASTY, and yer right, a few people were acting like they owned the site, and dissing people left and right. It really was pretty arrogant of me to think I could change anything but I waded in there, and made a few KIND comments, and took posters seriously, and tried to answer, encourage, sympathize (a little) and just throw in my humble 2 cents worth.

    Modboxmom, PLEASE continue posting and reviewing and adding in your 'take' on things, cuz the nasties only take over when the good people aren't there to shame them. People are addicted to kindness, and even if people are on here who are not MTs, they probably just come looking for a version of human "touch", and a wee bit of kindness. Life doesn't hand that out to just anyone.

    I'm with you. Nasty is as nasty does, but when you come in as a class act, they kinda fade, it shows them for what they are... narrow, nasty, mean-spirited bullies who just waltz thru places like this looking for people to beat up.

    You and me baby, we can take on the WORLD and make it a better place, starting 1 chat at a time.
    You could try your State Boards board at this site ...
    and ask if anybody in your area knows the scoop, assuming you don't mind mentioning the name of the hospital. Or you could give its initials I suppose.

    Saw post on another site..
    Lady had same problem, unplugged for a few minutes but it did not work. She finally unplugged it for about 10 min. and it worked fine.
    Inside is a great web site/message board
    I did post a site, but it was deleted???
    I don't get it.
    All word questions need to be posted on the Word board. Please use the correct board to post.

    You realize you are posting this on the main board, right? Not everyone at this site works for MQ.

    I don't see an email listed on her post. Elsewhere on the site? nm
    The 'Good Site' problem poster on the Career board has been resolved.
    re: post about internal clock, there is a web site address
    given to us by our MT leader. I've never tried it, but it's supposed to keep the clock in sync. The addresss is www.clock-sync.com/help.html.  This may help you with your problem.
    That is an interesting site. Thanks for taking time to post it--nm
    Actually, you are incorrect. People post their feelings on this site
    to having to register and give their personal information, IP address, etc. Be pro-AAMT. I choose not to and that is my right. No whining, no complaining...I am just one of those American MTs who doesn't see AAMT as glorious as you do. Also an Old MT.
    No use Olympus recorders and post to ftp site-- all automatically
    very little investment required in equipment. Just recorder and software. Why duplicate the Internet when it is free?
    Post word questions on the Word board NOT the Main board.
    Moved from Sticky Post. Christmas IS celebrated on this site

    Moved from Sticky post...

    Christmas IS celebrated on this website. If you do not celebrate Christmas, that is your prerogative.  However, if posts celebrating Christmas offends you, you might consider another site as we celebrate Christmas on this website and will do so every single year.  As the owner of this website, I am proud to say MERRY CHRISTMAS in celebration of Christ's birth.  I will not fall in line with others who are being politically correct and I do not expect others who celebrate Christmas to be forced to conform either.  Since over 95% of Americans celebrate Christmas, I do not see what the big deal is anyway.  For those who do not celebrate Christmas, I offer respect for whatever you do celebrate though I may not agree with your belief system.  In turn, I also would hope that you would respect what I celebrate.

    Merry Christmas,

    Sheri Steadman

    Didn't see your post but apparently we agree it is a good site! lol
    See post below, about investigating and presenting options, plus web site for spell checkers. NM
    see post below, about investigating and presenting options, plus web site for spell checkers.

    A somewhat better option, investigating and presenting options, that throwing up one's hands and saying, oh well. Of course they should have a spell checker. the idea about checking if Steadman's will work, even if Word is incompatible, is a good one. Also, the post below adds a reference to a web site that has spell checking programs.

    Of course I sound strong. I don't believe in being treated like little girls. We deserve software, just like the programmers do.
    why would you post this on the board????..nm
    The things you post on this board clearly
    say that you are a lonely man! Get a woman and then get a life!

    Sorry, will re-post this on MedQ board.
    I'd like one, too! I answered your post on the other board.
    I'm sure they'll need an experienced technician to work at home, though. Just like any other job, they don't hire newbies without experience to work at home right away. It's better to learn in-house from experienced people than to try to go it alone. You can't troubleshoot over the phone and fix someone's computer if you've never actually done it in real life. College merely lays the foundation, it doesn't make you an expert in the field.

    I've been trying to find an at-home tech job for over 10 years now. It's not easy. Too much competition out there with all the youngsters and Y2K layoffs. Totally saturated market with much lower wages than 10 years ago. People generally don't quit at-home tech jobs because they're hard to come by.

    Post a resume board?
    Wasn't there a "post a resume" board? I am not seeing it.  Quit my other job for full time and it is not even half time.  Going broke here.
    Your post will probably get moved to the Gab Board. We
    I see your post was moved from the other board...sm

    Hey Blondee,


    What language did you're folks speak before they came here to the great melting pot?....Did they come through Ellis Island, Angel Island, on the Mayflower or in the bottom of a ship in shackles...We're all immigrants....unless, of course, you're a Native American or Inuit.


    I speak a few languages and had gotten called outta my office at any given time to translate in the ER or OR. If it helped to save someone's life and/or calm a family's nerves, that was cool with me.


    It would be nice if everyone just spoke the king's English. 




    Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN


    Are we "SLOW LEARNERS" or what?


    Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN


    "In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."


    Theodore Roosevelt 1907

    There was a post on job board this morning
    Post on prayer board ???

    Is that for real? Is it someone here or was that a fwd that was posted? A few things jumped out at me as being inconsistent with the situation presented.


    You should probably post this on the Company Board
    Thank you for an excellent post. I wish we had our own board. nm
    Read your post on the other board....
    It discussed not having health insurance any more, not being an employee, having 2 IC jobs, etc. You speak of this as the CURRENT/FUTURE situation, not in the past. I know the subject of Keystrokes not hiring ICs has been addressed many times on this board.

    I don't mean to make you defensive, but you posted pretty much 2 separate messages about a single job and they give conflicting information. I'm just confused.
    But there is a link on that board to post a resume and you
    can post it there.  Job seekers board is only for companies to post about positions. 
    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?
