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.

Keystrokes is definitely hiring. I received an email from them saying that they sm
are hiring a lot of new MTs. They emailed CMTs from what I can tell, as they also emailed a few friends of mine as well. Three of us have taken positions. The timing was right; I have had it with MQ.
Has everyone heard back from Keystrokes yet regarding the email we received a while back?
Just wandering why I haven't heard any response yet.
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?

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.
received the email, nm
received the email
no email received
can you provide more info?
a lot of us received an email
asking when we would be able to have an interview--NOTHING, NADA after that.

received 2 email warnings

I had received 2 email warnings

I received no such email, and I was paid on the 8th, not the 7th, and sm

since the line counts have not even been issued, it would seem highly unlikely that I am going to be paid on the 22nd.

I am sorry that you seem upset by my question, but I do not think it is unreasonable to want to know when I will be paid.

As far as letting you know anything, you have distanced yourself from the MTs so much, I really doubted that you would care.  Thanks for responding to me at least on the message board.

I received an email from JG stating spaces would
be paid now too. Got it at 9:19 a.m. with a follow up email 4 minutes later stating for clarification, this is permanent.
Yes, to me too. In fact, I think it was an Indian name in the email I received.
The Transcription Doctors?? I received an email about a job. Anyone know who they are?
Just checking them out.
I have received no email about such conference call.
Where did you get that from, and who sent it out.  Give initials, pls.  I got missed somehow.
I don't believe I trashed the company, and I had not received the email yet. sm
And yes, she is cheery and full of hope and promise, but that doesn't pay the bills now.  I appreciate your compassion. 
I applied on Friday and received an email
on Sunday asking about my availability for an interview. I responded on Sunday with totally open availability and I have not heard anything back. What should I make of this?
A month or so ago I received an email from Axolotl
Offering me a position, but the recruiter was very up front and told me it was an extremely difficult, heavily ESL dictator account, so I passed.

I'm not sure if that's the account for which they still have an opening, or if they've got something else available now.

I've never heard of the other place, so I can't help there. You might check the archives just in case there's in there.

I received an email from TransTech stating that they
are about to hire for many positions but just last week I read lots of posts on here about people running out of work.  At one time I had been really interested in working for them but this is really confusing and makes me very wary. 
I received an email today stating it was all approved. :-) nm

Submitted resume 9/28 late at night. Received email today. nm
Drop them an email. Mine was stolen. I received a nice empty envelope.
I got an automated email shortly after and received info from Debra shortly after that. NM
Anyone posting about Keystrokes needs to take it to email.
If you don't like our rules on this site, you need to go somewhere else.
Wrong. The person who was fired this week was from Keystrokes. I just got an email

from someone asking if was me posting here tonight, so I came to look.   I agree with a lot that the poster has to say but I post my name when I post.  Anyone who knows me or of me knows this.  I do not have to post behind anonymous names nor do I. 

I do disagree with some of what this poster says though and will take a moment to tell her/him something:  You chose to run a service and knew or should have known what you were getting into.  If you are doing all that, you should either hire more people or hire different people.  The best move I ever made as a service owner was learning to delegate and hiring the right people including Human Resources, Accounting, Operations, QA, Recruiting and IS.  (The second best move I ever made was to stop letting the posts on the MTStars and others affect me).  Best advice I could give a service owner is to cough up the money for a good staff; it is worth it in the long wrong although hard in the short term.

While not everyone agrees with me or likes me or wants to work with Keystrokes, I do not feel a need to hide behind the anonymous nature of these boards and would rather have people know where I stand than wonder.

You would also know that I value our transcriptionists and know that as a company, Keystrokes constantly tries to improve.  If you know me at all or anything about Keystrokes, you would also know that our rates are going up not down and we do not undercut prices to beat our competitors. 

If anyone has anything to say to me directly, please use my email.  I do not visit here often anymore and do not plan on starting again as it gets a bit addicting :)

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
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. 
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.
Hired company, but sale did not take place, right ? n/m
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
Watch out, this company is probably up for sale to Transcend.
Usual warning signs - lots of mls, low work.
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
Hey OrthoMT.. tried to email you back but the email was returned as undeliverable..
Basically, this is what I'd like to know.. You can email me the information if you like..First off, are they hiring for ortho? and what is their scheduling like, FT or PT, IC status or employee etc. I would like to find a company that is pretty flexible. Also, what platform do they use? I have worked at some like you were saying, took forever to get the line count and I want to work 8 hours and be done. Oh, do you have benefits, and what are they like if you have them? Thanks for any information you can give..
