Been there nearly a year now, and I have had nothing but a great experience there. I would recommend them to anyone.

Ditto, Keystrokes is a wonderful company with wonderful people! I love working for Keystrokes!
I am just not making enough money.  They are a great company though, just ask for a back up account.
welcome..you will love it at Keystrokes...
I LOVE Keystrokes!
I just had my second day with KS and LOVE them! In just 6 hours, I was able to do 1600 lines! I have an AWESOME ER account and all of the dictators are so easy! I hope to be there for many years to come!
LOVE Keystrokes!
While I don't type ortho for Keystrokes, I do ER, and I LOVE it. I don't have any ESLs, I always have TONS of work, make excellent money and, most importantly, I am treated like an actual human rather than just some number or just another employee. My lead MT is the best and is always extremely helpful. I also received a welcome card in the mail from the office when I first started. They actually go out of their way to show their MTs that they do care. They are by far the best out there.
Love Keystrokes too
I've been with KS for a little over a month now and love it. I plan on being there for many years to come. I was also offered a job with TT before I went to KS, but was told that the account was over 75% ESL. I have no ESLs on my account with KS :)
Love Keystrokes
I have been there for a month now and love it. My manager is super friendly and helpful, and I always have tons of work. I am on an ER account and I did not have to purchase any equipment. They provided with a Transnet foot pedal, which was all that I needed. My account is awesome and my pay checks have almost doubled since I left my old company (SPI/CyMed) and started working for Keystrokes. I'm sure that they are not a perfect fit for every MT, but I am extremely happy there and hope to be there for many years.
Love Keystrokes
I have never worked for Zylomed, but I do work for Keystrokes and I love it. I have an excellent account and an awesome lead MT. They always pay on time (direct deposit), and I have also found them to be very flexible. The best part is that they do not outsource at all and keep all work in the US. I would recommend them to any MT.
Definitely not Keystrokes! Love it there!
Welcome to Keystrokes...you both will love it!!!
I have been here over a year and I love it...couldn't ask for a better company to work for...
I was hired by the CEO and love my job at Keystrokes. sm
I agree with the lead person in that there is more here than you are telling. Did you not like the account? Did you not have the proper equipment, phone lines, etc? Did you send in your paperwork? Did IS set you up? If so, you were not forgotten by the CEO. After she hired me, I talked to Becky for paperwork, Val for my account and Paul for IS. I have never spoken to Lee again but I am glad that she hired me in the first place. Did you need her to hold your hand? Do you have problems with other companies too?
I have been with Keystrokes for a year now and I love it...
I love my account...my leads are helpful and I have as much work as I want...best move I ever made was coming to work for Keystrokes...Good luck!!!
I love Keystrokes..would recommend them to anyone...
Good luck with your decision...
I have been with Keystrokes for over a year and love it...
Keystrokes is a good one...I love it there...
and only employee positions...
I would love to work for Keystrokes but
I do not have a personal computer with XP and they stated that I needed to supply my own PC with XP.  Once I find a place that I can buy XP at a reasonable price I will apply.
I love working for Keystrokes...
I can't answer the second part of your question because I have been with them for 2 years...but I know they are a stable company and I finally found the perfect fit for me...good luck!!!
I have been at Keystrokes for 2 years and I love it...
I have never experienced or heard of anything such as the OP is claiming...all I know is that Keystrokes is a great place to work for and you were unhappy there let it go and move on...I truly hope you found a better fit for you...and to those that do not like working for Keystrokes, find another job...
I work for Keystrokes and I love it...
I work for Keystrokes and love it
Great company, good pay, great leads and plenty of work...I have been there for 2-1/2 years
Been at Keystrokes for 2-1/2 years and LOVE it!
I have also been at Keystrokes 2-1/2 years and love it...
Great company.
I had to test for Keystrokes...have been there for 3 months...love it...
Can't speak about Webmedex, but I love keystrokes.. sm
Best company by far that I have ever worked for. Steady work, good line counts, good specs, fair QA, on-time pay.
Keystrokes love fest question
It used to be (a couple of years ago) that anytime Keystrokes was on here it was all negative responses and no one had anything good to say.  Now it is a continual gush of admiration.  What changed?  Just curious.
Try applying to Keystrokes...I do ortho for them and I love it...
I work for Keystrokes on DocQScribe and love it. sm
I find that my line count is accurate (I pulled a few reports out into word and counted that way). ShortHand works, or I would not be able to type, seriously. I type 1500 lines a day, most days, worst being 700 in the beginning and 2357 being the best. This is 8 hours. I have done more but worked longer than 8 hours those days.

The only thing I was faster on was WP5.1+ with PRD+ but maybe it was just that my fingers were younger :)
Yes -- still at Keystrokes and still love it. :-) I am just looking for extra work. sm

I have worked 2 jobs for almost all of my life, so it is almost 2nd nature.  I think you will find Keystrokes a refreshing change from MQ.  They actually care about your well being and listen to you . They do not overhire.  The benefits are pretty good.  I do not have anything bad to say about them. 

Good luck! 

exactly....all of the people that I know that work for Keystrokes are happy and love their job...
move on if it is not the right fit for you...there are plenty of other companies out there...
I feel the same way!!! I love Keystrokes...I have finally found my fit....
I type Ortho and absolutely love it!!!
I am not management...I just happen to love working for Keystrokes...
sorry you had such a bad experience but doesn't mean that Keystrokes is bad...just in your opinion...
I love Keystrokes...been there for 3 months and couldn't ask for a better place to work...
I agree with Denise...I have also only been at Keystrokes for a shor time but I love it...it already

beats the company I was with before, and I was with them for a year-and-a-half...I can see if someone wanted an opinion about a company and you had a bad experience to share, but not just to get on here and say how horrible a company is...move on and good luck....

That's good news. I love Keystrokes, and I hate to think of them selling. sm
The people are great, and I truly feel that I have finally found a home.  Still, business is business.  I have a friend who has been with Transcend for years and is very happy there, but I want no part of it.  I plan on working until I'm 70, so I'm crossing my fingers that the bottom does fall out for me before then. 
Love, love, love TransTech! Not overhiring, just growing like crazy!
I feel the same way...I love working for Keystrokes and feel blessed that I have such a wonderful jo
I too love path & can't find it at home & would love to cross-train into rad in the meantime I do
Love this company, love my boss, very informative QA.nm.
Did Keystrokes sell to Transcend? I thought Keystrokes was buying up companies sm
but I heard from another service owner that they sold out to Transcend. Anyone know if that happened?
Does anyone think 41 is too old to go to nursing school. I love MT but I just would love to be a
nurse.  I have such a interist in helping others and the medical world.
Love, love, love DeVenture
Super nice, flexible and just all around nice to work for.
Love, love, love Axolotl
I totally love Axolotl.  Just as A-team said, fantastic benefits.  Yes, strict schedule, but never ever had a problem getting off when I needed to.  I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. 
keystrokes ad..can someone tell keystrokes their banner ad needs a hyphen...quality-minded
Did Keystrokes sell to Transcend? I thought Keystrokes was buying sm

small companies but another service owner told me that she heard that Keystrokes sold to Transcend.  Is this true? 

I posted this down below but meant to post it as a new thread.  Before I apply with them, I would like to know as I left Transcend a few months ago and do NOT want to get back into that mess.

Not only that, but I would MUCH rather work for Keystrokes than Spheris as Keystrokes doesn't

Only Keystrokes. Worked at MQ until I came to Keystrokes. Started at sm
Keystrokes PT, liked what I saw and experienced, gave notice to MQ and went FT. Have not look back since. I had previously worked at 2 hospitals, for MDI, Transcend and MRC until bought by MQ. I plan on retiring here as long as they stay as they are.
No, Not with Keystrokes, visiting friend and using her pc, she got job with Keystrokes
I forgot to change the Name. I do not think Keystrokes is hiring anymore now. Would like some info about Diskriter though.
I would love to know too, I love EXText
Love Bayscribe and love the pay
At 11 cpl I love working for MDI Maryland. Bayscribe is a breeze. The lines build up so quickly. Everything is right there on the page. Sometimes, you have to fill in patient data, but who cares.... you do get paid for it. No holiday or vacation pay as it is an IC position. It beats 8 and 9 cpl any day. IMO
Love, love Archivus
Mind my asking what your line rate is? Do you have to work a schedule? Is their platform good? Anything else?
love/hate MT, mostly love it :)
i've long been dismayed with the direction in which this profession has gone, and i agree with the person who posted that women have accepted substandard wages and/or unfair IC or employment situations. It's very sad to see how, when outsourcing became the norm, women did not adequately negotiate to, you know, pay their bills!!! It seems this has resulted in lots of undercutting and lower line rates for everyone. I see some companies slowly improving and not requiring crazy line counts and hours in exchange for paying into health insurance. i entered this profession as a single female. i married an engineer and was living mighty comfy and cushy and happily doing 4 hours at 11 cpl in the late 90s. didn't have to worry about not having bennies at all. now as a single mom with a young child, i truly struggle. but i do love my work and hold out for my specialty to keep the line count up. still, i see the glaring problems and it's just a shame. if there were an MT union, i'd join in a heartbeat. no time/energy to start one and be some kind of norma rae, though!

Ah, yes, a love/hate thing indeed!

Best to all of you wonderful mts, male and female :)
Been with Keystrokes staying with Keystrokes

I was there for the promises and guess what Keystrokes is making good on those promises. 

I get vacation time, 401K, and even AFLAC.  My pay is great, always on time as well as accurate. 

I have my main account and have been given back up accounts for which I have been fully trained and am comfortable typing on.  I have great leads, great tech support and plenty of work.

Am I biased???  Yes I am biased.  I am grateful everyday that I was given the opportunity to work for Keystrokes and their team.  I am grateful that my company's owner is a fellow Transcriptionist that goes home at the end of the day and works like the rest of us so she knows what a hard job I have and I know that she is working to make things better for me because unlike other companies I have worked for she understands what it is I do.

Please accept my apologies that you were unhappy with Keystrokes and chose to move on before all of the promises came to fruition but don't begrudge those of us that stayed loyal and are now reaping the benefits of a GREAT COMPANY WITH GREAT BENEFITS, LOTS OF WORK AND THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THERE ARE MANY MORE GREAT THINGS TO COME!

I just want to say Thank you Lee, Jeff, Becky, Karyn, Martha, Annette, Paul and everybody else in the office for all that you do.
