They still seem to be disorganized from what I can tell, but
I didn't have any of the particulars as far as pay, etc.   Their test was a killer though. 
Very disorganized...just me...nm


Still very disorganized. sm
IMHO, there are some pretty big problems especially in the communications department. They do pay on time and you probably would have enough work if you asked for more than one account. But I think they should have some hard internal come-to-Jesus meetings and get organized before they take on more accounts and more people.
very disorganized, no work, low pay
spare yourself the agony!
After one week of working for them, I notified them about my wish to terminate the contract (2 wks notification required). After completing the full 3 wks (luckily I found a good company to work for!), I sent them invoice for (whatever little available) work done amounting to $65 (hahaha! what a joke!!!) and still have not received any payment...
Don't waste your time and talent.
The point is that they are disorganized

and unprofessional....

that is the point, not that the recruiter was out to get her but that the recruiter is lazy and incompetent and too lazy to come up with a better excuse or a better way of presenting the position.


Very disorganized company. nm
I had the same experience, very disorganized - sm
I had to wait about 6 weeks for my first check, that alone made me nervous but I did get paid w/o issue every 2 weeks after the initial wait. I only used C-phone and word though no platform. Agree with the bad QA, nice enough people though very, very disorganized.
They seem to be terribly disorganized, trying to
change procedures, added new staff, adding lots of new accounts and I guess they are just overloaded.  I would definitely recommend a phone call.  Usually after that things get rolling.
This company is very, very disorganized.
They seem to be very nice people, but they really need to evaluate the way they do things and put a checks and balances system in place so that people don't fall through the cracks. I was in disbelief at the experience that I had with Keystrokes. I just moved on.

One should not have to keep reminding a company that they have hired you and that you need to get started. Unbelievable. I am not bashing...just sharing my opinion of this company.
Very disorganized. I worked for them for like a
They owner will IM you to death for 8 hours straight.  Yes, IM is a requirement.  Meditech was the platform, which is horrible. 
VERY disorganized company.
The supervisors are not MT's and it's hard to get any information.  I have a second interview Tuesday elsewhere and will be moving on.
Not only disorganized but I found
less than knowledgeable.  Based on her answers to my questions I concluded she had no experience as an MT which didn't sit well with me as I think she also doubled as the transcription supervisor also.  Based on my interview and then prior posts about this company regarding QA issues, platform and dictators I decided to keep looking as I didn't get a feeling there would be stability with this company. 
They weren't rude with me, but a little disorganized and
not looking out for my best interests, but the interests of their client, which I guess is the way it should be since the client is paying for their services.  As far as I know there are 2 women that run this company, I have not talked with the owner and maybe she was the one rude, but the woman I dealt with was not rude, just a little dingy and maybe not 100% truthful about the company that she was recommending.  All TM did though was screen me and then I still had to go through the testing/interview process with the company.  I had had contact with the referred company previously and had even been offered a position with them, which I turned down.  The pay rate offered to me by TM and the pay rate offered to me by the company were the same.  I declined referral to the company, being that I had already declined an offer from them and I never heard from TM again. 
I think they use different programs, very confusing and disorganized
When I was there a year ago, they were VERY disorganized but still micromanaged and
MDI-FL, very disorganized. Agree with poster (sm)

They get nasty at MDI-FL and answers to questions ignored if they don't like the question being asked.  Paid time off is NEVER correct and good luck getting the time listed on the stub.  Work flow is hit and miss.  They order you off and then back on with VR accounts.  Pay and insurance benefits are better than most if you tolerate their demands and disrespect.

Do you find it a very disorganized company?
Transcend is so incredibly disorganized.
They need to get their act together before they buy another company. Nobody knows what the other is doing, poor communication all around.
I am thinking they are disorganized and shorthanded with admin
That is the impression I get.... and they called and told me not to call back because they are constantly on the phone. okay so ? But ?
Shapin...unprofessional, disorganized, let go without any warnings at all.
I wouldn't recommend them to my worst enemy!
Drs. who are so disorganized you get a 15-minute report and wind up
Drives me NUTS! 
I thought their training was AWFUL. Disorganized, sm...
and way late on feedback (it took me more than 24 hours to get feedback on my first training day)! I lasted about 30 minutes into the second day and said I'M DONE! The platform, IMO, is rather cumbersome, as well. No DD for 90 days, as I recall. All in all, I would suggest to look elsewhere, but this is JUST MY OPINION!
Very disorganized. Unqualified ppl in upper managment

Three words..Feast or Famine.., disorganized, and bad communication, anything else??
I wish I had more positives other than pay is on time. That is about the only positive at all.
Great bennies but extremely disorganized and out of work a lot. nm
Precyse. Disorganized, low work, broken promises.
Disorganized. If you aren't the favorite, then forget it. Never enough work
so you can work your schedule.  But if you don't get your line count, you are expected to do whatever it takes to make it.  Keep looking -- there are better companies out there. not to mention you'll get talked about behind your back
Worked there shortly. Pretty disorganized. Hard to understand the
Keystrokes-disorganized accounts, broken promises, moody owner
Busy does not mean disorganized. I would rather work for a busy company sm
than one with no work. I started with Keystrokes 3 months ago and it is the best thing I ever did. I have a steady paycheck and plenty of work.
I wonder if you would be kind enough to tell me......
exactly what constitutes "good reason" for my home phone number to be given out to anyone by Lee as it was?

I'm sorry. I went to work and then had to come back to ask this question. I even looked up *confidentiality* in my Webster's trying to find the loopholes.

Thank you.
She was very kind
and all, but Lee or someone should know that she is misrepresenting herself. She should know that it's OK to say, "I am new to Keystrokes and feel that this is a great company to work for" instead of lying and saying "I have worked for Keystrokes for X amount of years and they are great" when she had only been working there a few days. There is no need to lie to people.
I am using one, but it must be the right kind
At some point, and I think it was when I installed Express Scribe, I could configure my footpedal. Try to do it, and if it won't let you - then you don't have the right kind of footpedal (it's either 9 or 13 pins, I can't remember which).
What kind of pay for V/R? nm
What kind do you like and what don't you?
Is is the work types, or the dictators? What I don't like are the long pauses in dictation. I have heard a couple of the dictators seem to hit a pause button, but most of them don't know how to do that.
What kind of changes? nm
What is the use of this? I have been getting this kind of
run around also, but why would companies treat MTs this way... no loyalty breeds no loyalty in return. I hate to say misery loves company but seems like more than we have had this happen. How to stop it is another question. IMHO.
Actually, I kind of see it although we
did it to ourselves. Suddenly, you were supposed to be Super Woman, it was the new version of Once Upon a Time. Get a degree, get a job, earn the bacon, fry it up in the pan, etc., somehow you end up being the one who gets the kids and hub up and out the door, taken to the doctor, drop off the dry cleaning, excel at work and keep a clean house and by the way, don't forget to look spectacular at all times. of course, if you are in a bad mood, your hormones must be at fault. Been there, done that, got the bumper sticker and the T-shirt which I now use to dust furniture!
you are EXACTLY the kind of sm
person I am talking about! Was there any point to that? I am not whining. I am stating a fact that there is no point in folks reacting to other people like YOU are reacting. Sounds like you are attacking! The ability to disagree and just down right nasty are two different things and you fit the latter.
May I ask what kind you have?
Maybe it's just Hughes, because my experience has been pretty crappy. I do know that an ex in Missouri had some little rinky dink company; he paid half what I did ($39) and had a signal that was twice as fast as mine and didn't seem to have the fluctuations. I assume that rinky-dink got its feed from one of the big ones but was never able to figure out who. There has to be something better than what I've got now, but few people even have internet in my area except some of the city dwellers with DSL(where populations get up to about 723!!!)
I have a car but if I said which kind
I am sure I would be called management which I definitely am not.
Thanks so much and that is what I was kind of
afraid of.  I applied for that one on the job board because of loads and loads of orthopedics experience but they want you to have Dictaphone or the equivalent.  I do not have Dictaphone and not sure that I have the equivalent, I have never worked on it so I am not sure what they are looking for.
Feels kind of right, what your saying
"The other troublemaker"
Sounds kind of
Well I did that kind of production too.....
Until going on the VA account. It's a whole other ball game and a totally different story.
What kind of problems
did you have with your LD service before you got Vonage? I am switching from Vonage to Verizon Freedom because I have been getting disconnected a lot and heard it was from Vonage. Hoping I'm not making a mistake.

That's kind of cryptic. What do you mean by that? TIA
What kind of accounts do they have?nm
what kind of proof do you want:?
and still have proof of it ALL after 2 years!  There will always be those who have a good experience at a company and assume that it is the same for everyone at that company.  Sorry to burst your bubble, but that is not the case. 
OK... I really want to see some kind of link here. sm
I don't believe this for a second. I believe this poster is just trying to stir things up. If this were really true, then the OP would have posted a link or would have provided the source of the information (the news source) so this could be verified. Otherwise, if no link/source is provided where we can verify this, I would just assume this poster is a troll.
What kind of experience do you have?
