    Watch out, this company is probably up for sale to Transcend.
    Usual warning signs - lots of mls, low work.
    A new company would not be the place to be then. nm
    Put the company in a bad place and leave now.
    But if you worked for a company that hired
    good quality MTs in the first place, you would not have so many 100% QAs, right? Actually..I think I work in the same place : ( lol
    I was just hired by a company who uses DVI with MS word and I need sm
    medical spell check software. Any suggestions?
    I was hired by a company 2 months ago.
    They downloaded everything they needed on my computer, sent me pedals and now just waiting for training. My question is this - How long does this normally take. I have never had to wait this long to get started (not even with Keystrokes). I have sent several emails and have called the office several times and am told the same thing ---- still waiting on the hospital, we are extremely busy, etc.

    I'm seriously considering sending their pedals back to them and chalking it up but I would like to know your thoughts on how you would (have) handle this. TIA

    Can you e-mail me the company you got hired with?
    I only have 5 years of experience, but I haven't been offered anywhere near 9 cpl for clinic. I would greatly appreciate it. Granted, not looking to switch jobs any time soon, but wouldn't mind knowing where to look in the future if need be.
    Not when I was hired (October). Great company. :-) nm

    Does anyone what national company has been hired to handle...

    ProHealth Care of Wisconsin hospitals. I heard that they have now changed to a national company to do all of their work for all their facilities.

    Was hired for a company that promised lots of work.

    do they do this?  I checked the archives on this company before accepting the position and although there were similar complaints along with disorganization and some others I decided to give it a try.  In retrospect I should have listened to those posts.  I'm out of work for the 4th time now, there's no communication.  I don't know if my first clue something was amiss was the recruiter with her kids screaming in the background during the interview or the vague answers to questions I had clearing indicating there no transcription experience on her end.  Why do companies do this.  I have bills to pay and I always, always address this situation - is there enough work, do you run out of work often.  I know there are times when work may be low but this consistently happening.   


    Haven't found a great place yet . . ., was with last company three years.
    Just new this internet thing.
    Several months ago a company called Charts in Time (CIT) hired some MTs off here. Just wondering how
    it turned out for those MTs as I turned it down and wondered if I should have taken the job. Thanks.
    I think it depends on experience, account hired for, etc. I was hired at .08 per line sm
    but after 90 days went to 0.085 and then 0.09 about 90 days after that. I am now at 0.0925 and have been there a year. I have to point out that the line rate might not be the highest but I can verify my counts, have plenty of work, get paid on time and have a great manager. To me, leaving a bad national and the headaches that went with it was well worth the cut in pay I took. Funny thing is that I took a pretty sizable pay cut but make more money ?!?!
    What sale?
    i mean FOR sale

    why do you think it's for sale, and what are you asking them,
    Hmm, WM has a lap top on sale right now
    for only 400 bux. I just wonder if you can use a different keyboard and how cumbersome (or not) it would be to do that. I don't think I'd be able to type fast on a lap top keyboard
    Not me. I hope there is a special place reserved for them in a very hot place.
    Rumor is they are up for sale

    but I have not heard anything more about that.

    If MQ were for sale it wouldn't ....sm
    necessarily be a negative thing for the MQ employees regardless of who a new owner might be (same goes true for any company being sold regardless of the industry).
    MTSO's for sale
    Does anyone know of any MTSO's for sale?
    companies for sale
    What in the world are you talking about.  I am not from MQ.  I opporate a small company out of Michigan. 
    Keystrokes is for sale? sm

    I was just heard from my boss that Keystrokes is for sale for $30 million.  He was looking at them but thinks that Spheris will be the ones who will actually buy them. 

    I know that they are in the U.S.A. only.  What will happen once Spheris buys them?  Why Spheris and not MQ?

    sell not sale
    just before someone jumps on that one
    look on the equipment board here also--always some for sale there--nm
    aren't they for sale? (cut my messg off)
    Heartland - Status of Sale

    Heartland is such a horrible company, it has been announced that SPI has backed out of purchasing them for good!

    Almost all in-house employees are gone, majority of my MT friends left! I don't think they will survive with all these employees gone.

    I'll be sure to pass that along to the sale guy.
    Ever feel like no one in the transcription industry really knows to things work other than the MTs?
    Just remember.....everything/anything is for sale for the right price sm
    No matter what, everything and anything has a price tag. Good luck to all KS MTs.
    I mean the owner on the sale. The only winner here. nm
    VR is example of great sale pitch, not way of
    one angle the sales person is using.
    Does anyone know of any large billing agencies that are for sale?
    If you are aware of a large ($1million + annual revenue) medical billing/transcription agency/company that is for sale.  Please reply here or email me.
    I am sure she was legally bound not to say anything about the sale until it was complete. That is s
    business by the person who owns the business and the person who is purchasing it. She built her business, paid people for the work they did (does not owe anyone more than that), sold it and moved on. Why is it so hard for anyone to understand and why make it personal?
    Haven't heard a thing about a sale.
    Not a thing.
    and I have prime land in the everglades for sale.
    is eMTS out of Coral Springs for sale?

    I am thankful that lightbulbs were on sale last week. nm
    I received an email from someone about Keystrokes being for sale - it is lie. sm

    Yes, the owners met with the CEO of Transcend and went to dinner but it was 2 years and it was NETWORKING.  They had no intentions of selling to them and when they informed them of that, Transcend stopped coming around.  I work in the office.  Get your facts straight.

    I have a bridge to sale you? I guess its karma...
    "Was" is the keyword here! Up until the sale, they've been GREAT! nm
    Keystrokes is not for sale at this time, and there are no plans for selling in the foreseeable futu
    This is a rumor started by someone for absolutely no reason. There are a few companies out there who have approached Keystrokes about selling and have been turned down. A few have been very agressive and do not like to hear the word no.

    The company has been growing steadily for the past 10 years and has agressive growth plans in place for the next 5 years.

    If you have any questions, contact one of the owners or member of the management team directly. They will answer your questions.

    This is just another example of someone trying to stir the pot.

    Not every company is for sale, at any price. Although that may change in the future for the owners of Keystrokes, right now they enjoy growing the company and improving on what they have built. It will be several years before the idea of selling would be entertained.
    I said "about to be" hired... not yet hired, and ........
    considering it just like I would consider any job.... I didn't accept the job yet and wanted to check out the info out there.
    No - one place is the same as the next.
    Don't use yours all in one place!!!!!
    SPREAD the joy!!
    Me neither. Bad place IMO
    I think so, from the second place.
    Bad Place!!
    If you like to get paid for your work, then I would suggest not working for her!! She still owes me quite a bit of money, the pay is ALWAYS late and not always correct. She is also extremely moody and will take everything out on you if she's having a bad day. She says that her VR is really good, but I couldn't make much with it, and usually ended up typing the reports over for 6 cents/line.
    Don't know why they ask in the first place if they
    aren't going to take into the consideration what people have to say.  There have been a few others that did the same thing and came back here to post how sorry they were they didn't listen to the negative posts. 
    This place is not for you then.
    to have you and your strive for excellence attitude.  Try another company right now so that you don't lose your touch.  Best wishes...
    If MQ MTs are looking to that place, .
    Run from this place!
