People become annoyed when you ask for answers and don't try you own resources first.
Dont you think MQ will just keep hiring new people who dont know they lost lines because they are

new. I betcha.

Well duh, to see people respond, wouldn't you think? nm x
People didn't respond negatively to you here. Don't take it out on the folks here. nm
So simple. Go to the supervisor and tell them the names of the two people who have two different
answers and ask supervisor if she could let you know which of the two answers/orders were correct.  That keeps you out of the middle he-said she-said and the supervisor can once and for all correct this so no one else has to go through second guessing what should be done.
Uh, no---wow thos 30% must be pretty shallow people-I went from a relatively short simple name - sm
to a slovic name, luckily very short too but confuses everybody and just about every either pronounces it wrong or spells it phonetically and puts in an extra letter (a "c"). I can live with it though I do correct everyone when they do it wrong.
Dont want people to think
that the kids are in danger. They are with my mother-in-law while my sister-in-law works or with me. When she is not working she has them they do not stay alone with my brother-in-law anymore.
dont' even bother. People with sm
that attitude you don't want to work for. I would rather be on QA for months and learn every last thing about that account and learn it right than have somebody down my throat about still being on QA.

Don't let them fool you, these people that run these ads don't have that great of MT skills either or they would never put an ad like that. Stay away from them.
Yes, these random QA reports now being done by MQ are being done by QA people that dont even QA the
account and are a pain in the butt. Then they monitor the amount of blanks you have so I will not help out anymore on a new account that needs help because they even monitor those blanks. Who needs this aggravation.
Maybe it is to check and see if you have spellchecker. Some people dont
A regular spellchecker doesnt catch these words. Either way they want to know if you have a way to come up with the correct spelling regardless how you get it.

I guess they are focusing on people who take huge deductions which I really dont so maybe that is
why they dont audit me because basically there is nothing to audit since my deductions are about $600 a year which are payroll deducted for equipment. I watch with my deductions that everything can be well documented but I really only have health insurance now which before you couldnt take so that is it for me and that is easy to prove.
You know, I dont think people care anymore what MQ offers or doesnt offer, I think everyone is just

sick of all the confusion, dishonesty, sneakiness, etc. You never know what is around the corner so after this there will be something else no doubt. I think I and most other MQ MTs just want a company that they can respect and trust. MQ can offer this package and turn right around and change that. Leopards dont change their spots. It seems like they are intent on running this company into the ground and they are doing a good job of it. I dont see how they ever will stand up against the money they owe all of these hospitals. You still have to wonder what prompted them to send checks out to the DQS MTs for mistakes in calculation of lines. Give me a break. Maybe they are trying to settle lawsuits to get out of the MT business and focus on just technology. They sure dont know what they are doing with the MT side for sure. I think they felt they had everyone up against a brick wall but as accounts leave so will MTs or MTs will just move on to another business as the wages get lower and lower so then all the work can go to India. Older MTs will cut back or retire and younger ones will leave for something else when they see what they have to battle with the work left over from ASR or VR for the small amount of money not to mention EMRs coming quickly.

Why I think we get annoyed . . .
I am starting to think that one of the reasons we may get annoyed is because we are expected to be so "perfect" in our jobs that we cannot handle imperfection from others in the "outside" world. I find I am so inpatient and annoyed when I don't get the responses I expect from others, i.e., store clerks, business offices, etc., who don't respond as quickly or in the manner I think they "should." I mean, our work is expected to be perfect, we have to be in TAT, we have so much to produce within a certain time frame, that we expect nothing less from others. Is it just me, or do you see yourself in this? Just my thoughts. Gussie
I am annoyed...

that MT graduates are getting jobs and they have no grammar skills when they post on forums.




annoyed and ranting

It's bad enough that this doc is an ESL, but it also sounds like she is smacking carrots in my ear while she is talking. Oh well, only 3 1/2 more reports by her to go .

Just annoyed that he so smugly thinks I will be - sm
unemployed in the near future! You see, I have been happily married for 8 years and despite great effort on his part, he has not been able to cause many problems. My daughter has next to nothing to do with him because of the way he treats her. He really just wants to see us unhappy and in a bad situation.
I was trying to take a nap and was so ANNOYED cause phone kept ringing.(sm)
I was so mad, said WHAT is going on here?  Got up and listened to messages.  My friend said something about praying for those people on the plane.  Had no clue.  Some of those things you'll never forget.  BTW, used to live in NJ and always wanted to work in NY but never did.
Why dont you stop coming in and agitating everyone under all your different names. Dont you work.
I'm sitting here so freaking annoyed and can't stand it.

My freaking family has got me totally upset that all I can do when I sit and think is cry.  My mom came into a little bit of money and I've sat back and watched all my family members keep going and asking for money.  My brother talked to my son about a truck (my son needs a truck and went and looked at this one), my brother then got the money for the truck from my mom and bought it.  My other son is driving a car that has been dying for a year and is on it's final last legs but keeps driving it, hoping it doesn't die on him, while my mom goes and buys a car for my niece who has failed out of 2 years of college and is failing out of her 3rd year while working a part-time job where she can't even afford the insurance.My mom bought a new car and sold her old one to my sister for a really cheap price.  ALL of this because they run over there with their hands out while I just can't lower myself to it, so I sit and cry because I watch my mom give expensive gifts to family friends for their birthday while my own son got a card, JUST a card.  Perhaps it's jealousy, but more than that I'm feeling bad for my own kids (who I wish I had the money to take care of their problems) but don't run to grandma with their hands out.  Both my sons work hard full-time and by the time they pay their student loans from college they don't have 2 nickels to rub together, but they won't beg grandma's money away.  I'm TOTALLY proud of them for that but just find myself feeling bad that I can't do more for them and that my mom doesn't even look their way to see if she could be of help.  It totally SUCKS and I'll complain here and sit and cry, but I'll never tell her how bad it makes me feel.  I bend over backwards for her, ALWAYS have, and still will, even though my kids get the short end of her kindness stick. 

Thanks for the place to vent!  Maybe now I can stop crying and get back to work.

Yeah, I'm annoyed that QA wasn't included! sm

I so respect QA because they usually fill in all my blanks and I sometimes am in AWE of just how they do that when I relisten to all blanks several times.  My one QA lady also I absolutely think is the best because she communicates so well with us.....and seeks us out to do just that and give us feedback. 

Next year, I'll bet, they WILL honor QA!!!!!!!  (if I have anything to say about it!!) 

yes, Heston got quite annoyed w/Moore LOLnm

If you dont try to fill in blank or research, dont
I only lasted an hour at the mall today before getting so annoyed I had to leave.
All the teeny boppers are slowly cruising around with their friends but not buying anything. People are shoving and cutting in line. I just like to get in, get my stuff, and get out.
The way I understand it if you dont keep below 10 to 15% QA you dont get the bonus even if your QA
score remains above 98% so you see as the other poster said you are between a rock and a hard place and I expect this is MQ way of getting out of paying a bonus to people. I see it this way anyhow. I plan to continue to send unclear things to QA and that is the way it is. I expect depending on the new pay scale on top of this they will be losing a lot of MTs anyhow as they continue to miser everyone out of money.
Do you honestly think they do. I dont. I dont think some of them can even understand some of the

 reports they listen to quite frankly.

If you dont want to read a thread, then dont.
I know...respond....nm
How did you respond to that
utterly ridiculous comment by a very, very stooopid, stoooopid person posing as a recruiter (or owner, whatever)? 
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.
I was trying to respond to both you and the poster

" a good MT should be confident enough with her knowledge and skills to not want or need anyone's pat on the back.  If you can't do a good job without a baby sitter, perhaps you should consider another line of work."

Its a bit silly to judge someone's work based on the fact they just want a little interaction with their supervisor, i've been doing this long enough, and just saying I know my stuff.  One does not have to do with the other!  You guys go far in left field for an insult.

Absolutely would rather respond to
than a company that did not.  I don't want to waste my time.  I applied at 2 in the past and after going through the hiring process, did not offer me what I wanted as they said they could not afford to pay that much and only paid a certain CPL.   Wasted my time. I will not apply now unless I know before what they will pay.
Will normally only respond to the ones that post pay
The hiring process can be so lengthy.  I am not going to go through all of that (submitting application/resume, testing, interview, and sometimes verbal testing and phone interview) only to find out in the end they aren't going to offer me the money that I'm looking for.  I want to know what they are offering up front so I don't waste my time and they don't waste theirs.
okay, I tried but I couldn't help myself, I have to respond
let me get this straight - you spent 5 years in college, are an engineer and because you can type fast you want to get into a field where you might make 20,000 the first year - but it is rather laughable that you think typing is all that is required here - when most of us who have been doing this for 20-30 years are doing good to make 30-40,000 a year and are afraid that we won't be needed much longer because of computer (as an engineer you surely are familiar with them) technologies such as speech recognition and offshoring to India where the work is cheaper.  Now after you finish training - which you will need - a lot of us will already be out of jobs - do you really think this is a viable option for you?
Thanks to all who took the time to respond!

I agree that one can do great things with virtually any expander--even with just casual use it pays for itself within weeks.  I am at the point of relying heavily on SH8 due to arthritis (400% productivity gain, heavily nested WordVBA macros, etc.) and am always eager to learn about other programs, but $150 and no free trial is a hard way to learn.  Anyone know if InstanText can handle "code" (like WordVBA macros) in the Expanders like SH8 can?  Again, thank you all for your thoughtful responses. 

Yes it goes to the company. If you respond to
any post the e-mail address is hidden. 
Did anything become of that meeting? How did they respond to you?nm
I don't respond negatively to someone asking for help . . .
whether they are asking for something that would be incredibly hard (i.e. finding a job where you could work between diaper changes, naps, etc.). However, he could find something that has a split shift or like a 10 hour window to get 8 hours of work in. There are options out there.

In regards to someone posting about wanting to work around their child's schedule? I would respond the same way. I would try and help.
Most Dr. dont care and dont know how they get
Since dont know of any cars that dont use
that was going to be 'question them up-front' and see how they respond..(nm)
Yes, I tend to only respond to ads that list how

I do not respond if it says competitive salary.sm
That to me means 6 to 8 cpl. The company I work for now had no pay range listed, but said excellent salary. Turned out it was. Paid by the minute now and making much more than I was by 65 character line.
Just delete them, never respond. Its a scam. nm
I am not the above person , but thought I would respond -sm
Word is Microsoft Word, there are different versions out there. Since your computer has Windows 98 on it (you don't have to look for it, if you computer turns on and boots up, at some point Windows __ will come up whether is is 98, 2000, XP)-- you can probably only use Word 97 or 2000. The other versions won't work on Windows 98 I think. As for installing it, you can do it. It is very simple, the CD (I hope you have a CD drive) will walk you through the whole installation process. Just to a "typical" install and you will be fine. You may have it on your computer already of course, it generally came on most computers. If not Word you may have Works, which I think will work too, just need to save the files as "documents" with the .doc suffix. -----------As for gross lines, that is just a method of counting lines, a "line" is any line in the document with anything on it, one word or 20 words, would be considered 1 line. So it can be a nice way to get paid, if the doctor just does not do blocks/paragraphs. Some people even charge for the blank lines but I think that is going too far personally. But if the margins are wide (1"), and the type is small, i.e. less than 12 point, then its not so hot. So if is 12 point type and not blocks of paragraphs, a sample would help you figure it out, then I would just at .13 a gross line. Good luck.
Now just try getting someone to respond to your resume and want to test you...nm
Again, thank you so much for taking the time to respond..sm
I thought I was on the right track, but I've only been an IC for five years and have never had my own accounts. I passed on your opinions to my MIL and hope she will listen. I'm leaving to go to California in a couple hours and there is no way I can do it personally, so I hope and pray she does. We really need the account.
can't respond because mailbox is full

what part of please do not respond to that perp

did you not understand...if you respond - you feed the troll - as you can see I reported all posts and 90% of his have been removed....

How do I respond to ads on the job seekers board?
This might seem like a silly question but do I just send my resume using the 'apply now' button or can I and should I also send a cover letter with it?   Does it need to be in plain text?  Thanks
Anyone know why an HP all-in-one printer would would intermittently not respond? sm
Only about 1-1/2 years old.  No new software installed on computer.  Should I uninstall and then reinstall?  I can't track any certain document/reason why it does not respond.  Thanks.
Why it's the poster you like the Amen! posts you respond with.
Why not admonish this poster for "negativity"?   I'm bored with your game now.  You have lost all hope of following a train of thought, yours or mine.  Besides, I think you have multiple personality disorder.  Not that I know that but I suspect that.  I'm going back to work to let you and all the MQr, MQMT and MQga?? battle your private battles that have somehow become public because you have delusions of grandeur.
