You show people how to treat you. We don't

do gifts at my house.  There isn't a single thing I need that I don't already have.  I got breakfast in bed (omelet, bacon, and French toast).  Lunch and dinner was cooked for me and the dishes done, laundry was done, the den picked up.  My car was detailed by my children and my children also spread a pile of mulch for me.  They would have had to spread the mulch anyway, but it would have taken days, they did it in about 1/2 day.   I also received cards.   The kids didn't fight, I didn't get anything that I wouldn't use anyway, and it was just a very nice day.  

I always make a big deal out of birthdays and holidays for my family and they know what I want from them.

Does DTS America treat their people well?

I was thinking of testing with DTS America in Nashville and just wondering what anyone knew about them. 


We teach people how to treat us - I would not put up with this.
It seems this arrangement no longer works with your schedule. If they say they need the work now and you cannot do that any longer then you need to let them know why. Best of luck to you.
Some people just can't help but try to show - sm
off their "intelligence" whenever they get the chance!
Nah, some people just feel the need to show off. sm
Dressing babies like that is expensive! Personally, if I ever get around to having kids, my babies will be in onesies till they outgrow them, and then it's OshKoshB'Gosh overalls after that, lol.
People's personalities usually show up in their

work, IMHO, so the perfectionist QA usually QAs work to death; the pessimist QA finds anything wrong, or focuses on the wrong stuff with no hope for improvement; the optimist QA finds things wrong, but focuses on how they can be improved. 

Don't take QA stuff personal.  I mean, take it personal to improve your MT skills, but not personal as an affront on yourself, especially if you know your work is good

how about switching it around and telling the people who run the show that you really can't
expect any more out of people who have not received increases in pay in years, are swamped with ESLs and American mushmouths and they really should stop and think about the pay rate being increased so you aren't faced with this scenario.  how about representing the MTs interests instead of sucking up to the big boys?
No, out east ... lots of rude people running the show, it seems ... sigh. nm

And have several grills with volunteers to man them. Piggy takes too long to cook! People will show
If you can show proof you did this work for them, they then have to show they paid it in order
If they treat everyone that way
Treat others like you

There has been a lot of discussion on this board lately about how rude and impolite some of the posters are. What we are seeing here is also what is going on in our society. It is not something that is happening only in the MT world. This is something that has been taking place in our society for years, slowly and gradually taking hold of a large number of people who find it more convenient to let their frustrations out on others than fix their own lives. Have you ever tried approaching a cashier with a smile on your face and another with a grouchy look on your face? Then you know that the one you approached with a smile on your face was friendly and polite whereas the other one wasn't. Whenever you approach others with a smile on your face you will receive that smile back, even on a message board. I ask myself if those who lash out at others on a message board do so to their family members. If so, what kind of life are you living? Or are you the one on the receiving end and come here to pass that on to the posters on the boards? What kind of life are you living? Don't you all think that living in peace and harmony will contribute to your overall well-being?

What do those who are rude and impolite to others gain? Do you really feel better afterward? Do you want others to treat you the same way? It is like a contagious disease, and it seems to be more common to lash out than to be nice as if it hurts to be nice. You should be grateful that we live in a country in which we still can practice freedom of speech, at least to a certain extent.

Hiding behind anonymity while being rude and impolite is a cowardly thing to do. Take responsibility for your actions. Better yet, think next time before you lash out at someone seeking advice and remember when you started your first job. Did you seek and receive advice? Did someone give you a tip or spend time with you to help you understand the ins and outs of a job? Or have you never received help from anyone in your whole life? We all have received some type of support, help, and/or advice that helped us get back on track or be successful. Why not pass that positive experience tenfold or thousandfold back to others?

It is really very simple - treat others like you want others to treat you! Do this in all areas of your life not just in the MT world, and you will not only be a happier person but you will also make others happy. Give it a try - I promise it will not even hurt!!

Trick or treat
Since we have a Doberman, I doubt it will be a problem.
You have to treat us like humans
Im a breathing, walking, transcribing and talking human. may it be $20 or $200 per hour, you dont talk to us that way. I would declare war with you and your offer whatever it is.
That's how I would decide also. Treat others the way you
would want to be treated.
if doctors would only treat MTs like machines !!

this kills me, from the MT news board, a neurologist speaking:

What are the pitfalls? “Mumbling,” says Dr. Block, “that’s the main problem. Doctors are used to dictating in a low, monotone mumble, as fast as they can. A person might be able to handle it by going back and listening to the recording again and again. But for voice recognition, doctors need to speak in a normal, conversational tone of voice, just like we are doing right now. Speak normally, and Dragon has no problem, it works very well. It’s really quite simple.”

yes PLEASE, go ahead and treat me like a machine -- and that TAT would be a whole lot better!!!! and yes doc, you would save money too.....

do your present laundry first and then treat yourself--sm
for a job *well done* by buying new clothes. That way you get both. just a suggestion.
well i am glad that they treat you that posted better
Odd it must have just been me cause I was with them two different times two years apart and both times the same crap! I am glad to see that they are treating some people nicer than myself! I really don't know what the deal is there, but I know I didn't get much positive feedback or help when I asked for help! Yes, the pay was not so hot either I agree with the other poster on that part. I have two years of transcription experience, but this gal did expect perfection from me on day one I can see maybe day 3 but not day one. As I said I am just speaking my experience and if anyone else has had similar to myself please don't hesitate to speak up! Thanks! Have a great weekend all!
That's used to treat fungus. Chickenpox is a virus, but thank you anyway!

I wouldnt go get him. Just treat him tonight even if he doesnt have it
That may keep him from getting it. Head lice is a nuisance but not hard to get rid of. I wouldnt sweat it. You should change their sheets, etc...
Thanks for this post. Glad that you are doing well, and hopefully the next year will treat you even
better.  Blessings!
How could they NOT treat her? I mean, how on earth could the docs not 'touch her'?
Doesn't the physician on duty have an obligation to treat the patient? It'd be a greater lawsuit potential if they refused to treat her and she worsened or died. That doesn't make sense that they could chose not to treat her. It probably is stated as a complication but those can't really hold up in court. The possible complications list practically anything that could happen, including death, but that doesn't mean that if a person is injured or dies from surgery that the physician is absolved of any wrongdoing if they messed it up. I hope and pray she recovers fully.
This young person deserves a treat.
Great story.  Thanks for sharing.  
And you're willing to just accept that? Ever had your identity stolen? I have. It's no treat.
the police have made a report but whoopee, that's not getting my credit back on track.  Talk about stress and grief.  No one ever cares until it happens to them.  What a shame.
If you treat when they are not there, they dont get resistent becuase they are not there to get resi
I think someone has told you some old wives tale about this. I went through this with my kids' school in the city. It was horrible. There are sprays out there and the doctor told us that they die within being off the body in 12 to 24 hours.

Since moving to the county, my kids have not had to deal with it.

If you treat when they are not there, they dont get resistent becuase they are not there to get resistent to it.
Your job is to type what the doc says, not diagnose the patient and decide how to treat them.

Kind of arrogant to put your 9 months to one year education (estimated length of an MT program) up against a doctors 10 years of education, dontcha think? 

He may be an incompetent boob, but that's not for you or me to decide. It's up to the patient or their family members to decide to get a second opinion. 

"Sorry, Mrs. Pheebles, but we can't treat your heart attack..."
"It seems the Conficker worm just ate your medical records."
I hate when companies treat us like we're working for pin money

Am I supposed to be happy when a company only gives me 200 or 300 lines a day when they promise you a certain amount (that is higher than that)? How would the company employees (not us lowly transcriptionists) feel if the company told them that they were only getting paid 100 dollars this pay period, that there wasn't enough work. Not enough to pay bills and keep food on the table, just pin money.


Yikes! I just took five minutes to give my doggie some love and a treat! What a crazy world!
if you live among trashy people, low income people, people w/o goals or direction,
content to just get by, you by default become a part of a group. "people" have decided to group trailer people as trash. that is because there are enough people in that group to earn the title and even if you aren't trash, you are categorized by others. did i think i was trash in lower class neighborhood surrounded by people who drank and fought all weekend? no but i knew i wasn't staying and did not try to pretend that all the fools in the neighborhood were just nice folks who ended up where they were because high horse snobs deemed their neighborhood low class. people for the most part live exactly where they belong because they don't want to educate themselves, they don't mind "trash" around them and they don't want to be bothered trying just a bit hard to extract themselves from that world. they justify everything to themselves i guess saying everyone who doesn't like their lifestyle is a snob and the comedians (Jeff Foxworthy/Chris Rock, etc) who make fun of them are just ill-informed.

As for me, I fought hard to get out and don't even want to look back. It amazes me people stay for generations.
love, love, love the show. hate american idol. this show is for real.
the only reason i entertained watching it was because of mark burnett and as usual he has such genious casting and editing. btw, don't know who anything about "metal" music but these performers make me like it. love marty and jd as performers. HATE JESSICA. susie is so nice and so emotional. it seems they all support each other and enjoy each others skills. regarding ty and bob marley, ty was excellent but he also lucked out on the song! bob marley was genious too and his music is very easy to listen to. i don't like 3/4 of what the others are given to sing but their performances make me love the music. dave navarro shines on this show, very gracious for the most part and letting the contestants down easy when they have to leave. he was great last night with brandon (?). sweet, sweet show. i am so impressed with everyone involved.
so many people was wishy-washy nowadays...love to see people make
a stand for what they believe in...

it is kind of wierd those statements have to be made in the first place but guess we are an ever-transitioning country and are still young. so many different beliefs yet not much tolerance.

I found your post respectful, and right on as to how you feel. it does not seem that difficult to sift through to read and respond to messages someone might not care for...
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.
My people skills are just fine. I just want to hire people who want to work.
I've not been ugly, I've asked questions, legitimate ones.  Please tell me what is wrong with that.  This site is not just for MTs, it is for QA Editors, Supervisors, Service Owners, there's even sections for Billers, Coders, and Nurses.   
rude people? I would take good pay over polite people any day
Besides that they have never been rude to me and I have been here for almost 2 years. What do you consider a bad account?

I know my account is a little tough, but I am used to it. I am tough!
Rude people? I hardly think so. They are some of the nicest people I have ever worked with. sm
Not just management, but QA as well. No one is rude. They are a very understanding staff. There is one account that is hard but all it takes is getting used to it. Once you are used to it, it is no harder than any other ESL account that you would do anyplace else. I have heard all these things about TH from the archives and I have yet to come across rudeness or any kind of thing that I have read about in the archives. I would definitely pursue them if I were you. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
2 people to do that amount of work, is she nuts? More like 20+ people - nm
Certain people getting raises, certain people not. Guess who is?
Say what you will about unions, the good and the bad. But, one thing they did ensure is a raise, good benefits and that you would have a job in the morning.

I think this goes to show you that SM

when a person goes to another place with the proper attitude (respecting the culture already there, appreciating it and being open to new experiences) you can have a wonderful time.

I think sometimes we in the U.S. have such a need to fashion everything into OUR way of doing things it ruins our ability to appreciate different countries/cultures.

I love the show. I think the people learning to dance are very brave. I love George H. too! Looks like a lot of hard work and that it is definitely outside their comfort zone. Good for them!
This just goes to show you that when the
first letters are right and the last couple are right, the mistake is easily missed. No spelling police here, right!?!
It won't show up. it says
1. How much money did you make?
2. Send it to us.

Yes, I know how to show myself as
offline on instant messenger. Sorry, I misunderstood the post. That doesn't make someone stupid because they don't know how to, though. I had never even used instant messenger until about 3-4 months ago. It is a learning process and no one should ever be called stupid because they have not yet learned something.
New to the show
Only recently started watching this show. What is wrong with his leg and why does he pop all those pills?
was that the show with the...
Dumb guy and his *polyfidelity* mumbojumbo??? I just saw bits and pieces of it, but boy if that was my husband...well let's just say he wouldn't be my husband...or anyone's husband...for long! Whatta jerk!
What a show!
That guy was the biggest peice of trash I ever saw. Sometimes it just blows my mind why people as stupid as him want to come on national TV. Does he not realize he is a complete and utter fool? His wife is not much better either. UGH - She is only staying for the children and that is a shame. Honestly, I didn't really see any love between them.
About the show
I think personally that Paula is a little flaky, nevertheless, I can say I didn't notice anything different from her last night. As stated below, Carrie started the show. It was just a regular show I thought. No exciting moments, other than that nasty Brenna going home. She was pouring that "get money" thing on really thick. Kinda came off pathetic IMO. Can't wait until next time!!
There are also MTs that don't have anything to show - sm
that feel they must tear down those that do, whether they ever show it off or not. Like people that feel they must scratch or ding new cars they encounter because they themselves don't have the money to buy such.

There are bad apples on either side of the coin. But regardless of whether we have reason to brag or not, it is best we conduct ourselves so that we care about others in the process.

It should show up now, sorry.
One can never have too many friends.........

She is, it is her show, and...
it is meant to attract viewers.  Which is obviously does.  My son was on her show and she was VERY fair in her decision.  We were all very happy with the outcome, not because he won but because justice was served!! and on a TV show no less!!
She will just show up at the ER and noone will
Just goes to show you, all the

high-falootin' education in the world doesn't give you class.  LOL
