In Reply to: You are wrong. It was not - mt

is that Sherrie (Sheerrrii was a bad word) or not? (MTStars. nettt was considered a bad word, makes you wonder, don't it?) Is she still running this site? Not according to the other site, this was was taken back by the former owner who happens to be in Pakistan. So I would presume this is going to be an offshore site from now on.

    This came from an email from Andy, the owner, last December to the employees:

    "Whether we think offshore labor is right or wrong, it has become a fact we cannot escape from. OSi will not actively pursue offshore labor contracts, but we have made the decision to experiment with using some offshore labor to save this large OSi client from going elsewhere. We believe this is the best decision for our employees assigned to this account and the company because this account is growing and we can assign the offshore part to the future increases and not have to reassign any OSi MTs. OSi is committed to continue using US MTs for the majority of their work and we will continue to resist going offshore."

    He is talking about Ochsner, and I was told that they STILL offshore to them and also to Sarasota and Mayo.

    The problem is that they LIED AND DENIED AND LIED AND DENIED this for years. They got caught when the then-QA manager, SD, mistakenly forwarded an email from the Indian company to the company employees. Of course, she was demoted, so they hired NP to replace her. However, FA pitched a hissy and threatened to go on strike because she was overlooked, so they kissed her a$$ and moved NP to another position. Not surprisingly, that department has gone straight to the toilet, and almost everyone has either quit or gotten fired, in addition to the mass exodus of employees since this came to light, because she is incompetent, inexperienced, and daffy as hell and is the most irresponsible, nonproductive person in a management position.

    Be careful. If you are not in THE circle and kiss a$$, you are so dispensable that it is not even funny.

    Any company that repeatedly lies about offshoring, promotes incapacitated people on power trips, and sends the work offshore in the first place, is ruthless and cannot be trusted.

    Look elsewhere. It will only get worse!
    Here is the scoop!

    Bo and Hope's little boy, Zack, was killed by Chelsae (Bo and Billy's girl).  The all lied to Hope to cover up the fact that Chelsae did it....even Bo lied!  Needless to say, Hope found out everyone lied to her....including Bo!  She kicked Bo out of the house...UGH!  For me personally, that is the main topic. 



    Here's the scoop....sm

    Last week Simon told Katharine that she wasn't as good as Whitney and Katharine started crying.  Overall I agreed 100% with what he and Randy said on her - that she goofed up the song and wasn't good.  Well, on the results show Ryan asked Simon if there was something he wanted to say and he said yes, then went on and apologized to her and said that on reviewing the tape that it wasn't that bad.  I know many other people that don't believe for a nannosecond that he honestly felt that - Simon has never retracted what he has said and it makes us wonder if she has some family or friend in high powers at Fox that  put pressure on him to apologize for making her cry. 

    Personally even though she has a nice voice I can't envision ever wanting to buy her  CDs as she's not that great.  She is the type of singer you'd see on a cruise ship or broadway type of show - not a top pop star.   She also flirts so much that it makes me almost nauseated to watch her.  

    Here's the scoop on being an IC...
    When you're an IC you're contracting yourself out to the company you're working for. This means that you work out the days/times/terms for your work. You don't "have" to work certain days and times but if you refuse to work when they need you then they can terminate your relationship. Since you're an IC labor laws don't apply and therefore if you work more than 40 hours that is by your own choosing and it's paid at your regular rate unless you get the company to agree ahead of time to pay you extra.

    Here's the scoop on the RMT and CMT exams...
    From what I understand, the RMT is an entry level test which means nothing basically.  My employer doesn't pay anything for it.  However, we get a dollar an hour raise for passing the CMT, which is worth roughly 2000 dollars a year for me, so as useless as people like to say it is, would you take 2000 dollars or say "no thanks."  I know many employers pay nothing for it, in which case I wouldn't pursue it, but since mine does, I will probably try to pass it in the next year or so.  I hear the pass rate is abysmally low, which makes me wonder what is up with that.

    I want the question to be absolutely clear to her (admin) because she is not answering the question. If she can read the replies she needs to say that she can instead of deflecting by not answering the question.

    mean? the rules here at MTstars is you cannot

    Thanks MTStars and Santa!
    What a wonderful and fun thing you provide for us MTs.  Indeed, it is we who should be thanking you for the opportunity to come to this board and network with fellow MTs throughout the year.  I am very grateful that you are here in spite of all the grinches who try to ruin it for the rest of us all year long.  Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness and care in giving us this respite from our difficult jobs and stressful holiday season.  It is MUCH appreciated by most of us!  God bless and Merry Christmas to all of you who do the hard work of monitoring and providing this outlet for us all.
    MTStars Flashcount

    Is there a way to enter your clients information and keep it stored in Flashcount so I do not have to re-enter it every time?  Also, what is the difference between Regular Word Count and Extended Word Count in the Rule Selection section?  I ran both and got a higher count with Regular than with Extended.

    What does the blinking yellow symbol on the MTStars communication boards indicate?
    MTStars boards

    The main board, job board have sporadic yellow blinking symbols at the beginning of some the posts.  Just curious if that had a specific meaning. 

    Did you try Expanderic by MTStars?
    Isn't this MTStars FlashType under a different name?
