Full time with Transtech is both. 40 hours per week and 5500 lines per week.
I am able to get my lines/hours in as long as I flex a little within my time window. (sm)
Are you hiring on now or just looking?
T-C - full-time is 1000 lpd along with a "rough estimate" schedule of what hours you'll wor
It's pretty nice.
Anyone know what full time is for KS? Lines or hours? nm
Not sure about the 40 hours for full-time, but 11,000 lines per pay sm
period are required. I think right now they are hiring for Sunday through Thursday or Tuesday through Saturday. You decide which shift/hours you want to work, and I tihnk they will allow you to do a split shift if you prefer. There is some flexibility in that you can let them know any changes you need to make, but generally you are expected to work the hours you commit to working.
The platform is ExText, which is Word-based and very easy to use. The insurance is very affordable, I think. You have a choice between Aetna or Coventry, and then 3 choices as far as coverage -- ultimate, choice, and standard. I have choice coverage with Coventry (single plan), and I think it is around $70 per pay period for medical, dental, and vision, with a $750 deductible, $15 copay for office visits.
Hope this helps!
Transcend, is full time 40 hours or X lines?
Any info on what is full time for DRC? Hours or lines? Any flexibility? TIA. nm
Okay. Flex your time. Change your schedule if necessary. sm
If you have been in this business any length of time, you should know how work volumes fluctuate, especially around the holidays.
We are told to flex our schedules to get lines/hours in. (sm)
No one is trying to steal work from other shifts, we are just trying to do our jobs. Obviously it is not our preference to work outside our hours but we all do what we have to do to make this work for right now.
Hopefully new accounts are in place now and things will level out.
Have a better day.
Flex time requires a schedule. Crazy huh?
There is nothing to like about MQ at this point in time. So many people work there because the company needs people but the turnover of people is pretty significant. Be very leery of the pool. It is murky and will not allow you to make money because in that pool are thousands of client profiles you must read to see how to format the report before you can even begin to transcribe and make money. After you read this client profile, you may not see the client again for weeks which was a waste of your time. The speech recognition program is the worst requiring many corrections at a reduced rate of transcribed reports. No one can make real money with the disadvantages MQ gives you to worQ with.
Any bigger companies out there that do 10+ hours flex time?
I'm looking for a job to supplement my income on top of my full-time MT job, but really need one that allows me to log on at any time throughout the week and do, say, 2,000 lines a week or 10 hours a week or something like that.
Are there any companies out there that still offer this or is it too much to hope for? Anyone have a company they would like to recommend? Thanks.
MDI-MA does not require a set schedule- you do your required lines in 24 hours. nm
Full time/part time based on # hours or
# lines per pay period, nothing to do with quality. The lower the quality the higher the pay it seems.
Full time is 40 hours, and yes they have part-time.
For full time MedScribe, FL, do you just do 40 hours, sm
or is there also a line requirement? Do you punch a time clock? Do you have to work weekends? I don't see any mention of part time or IC status. Are they available? TIA.
Does Axolotl require 40 hours for full time
Also, what is the average most MTs type in a pay period? I know 12,000 is the minimum, but is it possible to type quite a bit more than that with their platform? THANKS!
Which companies consider full-time 35 hours per week? THX......nm
Transolutions I believe considers 32 hours full-time...nm
FYI OSI full time is 10,000 lines ppp
Now, if you can just get enough work available to get that, and not get on one of the accounts where they take a good 9-11% of lines right off the top, you'll be doing good.
Yes it does, but 35 hours a week is all that is required to be full time and get bennies.
Thanks so much. How many lines are required for full time? nm
Full time = 1200 lines per day. nm
Webmedx PTO rate of 1.08 hours per payperiod and only for Full-time Employees
Webmedx only gives PTO and insurance to full-time employees. No PTO for the first 3 months, then something like 1.08 hours per pay period, starting at 0. If they run out of work or your ISP goes down or your child gets sick and you cannot get in the full 35 hours to qualify for full-time, they want you to use your PTO to make sure your hours add up to 35 that week. If you fall below 35 hours for 3 months in a row, no matter what the reason, they automatically drop you to part-time and take away your insurance. Then, you have to work a minimum of 35 hours for the next 3 months before you will be eligible for insurance again. As far as holidays, if the holiday falls on your scheduled work day, you have to work, unless you ask for it off in advance, but they do pay you for 8 hours of holiday at your normal rate, in addition to any lines you type that day.
I love it. Got my full-time lines first week.
First time in years I am back to making my old money again. A good match for me, at least. IMHO. Been in the business over 26 years and I like it a lot. Can see acct. specs while typing, samples, have normals and inserts, etc. Never a problem and that was from day 1. And I am not a recruiter, I am an MT who has been around the block enough times to know a good think when I have it and to stay put. Good luck to you.
Transtech Full time status
Can anyone tell me how Transtech defines full-time. Is it so many hours a week or based on a certain line count? Thanks.
LOL. What teeth? Lost them when I couldn't get full time lines
Just gumming whatever I can! LOL.
Full time empoyee status only -- 1000 lines/day, 10,000 per pay period.
It is perfectly legal. You need to be FT to get benefits. You need 12000 lines to be full time. I
period so there is no issue. Why do some people here try to make everything ugly?
What the person did NOT say is that it is averaged by quarter. So if you do 12,000 lines one time, 15,000 the next and 10,000 the following, it will balance out. They also do not count it against you if your account is slow.
Can you get "full-time" lines in 24 to 32 hours?
My company didn't ask me how many hours I planned to work, they asked me how many lines I planned to do. I can do full-time lines in part-time hours and that's all they care about.
The good companies are out there. Don't give up.
Now you can not make your lines in 9 hours! More time for 2nd Job.
Can anyone tell me the required amount of hours/lines for part time per week for Focus? nm
Want a schedule? Then I want full ...sm
benefits, PTO, insurance .... the works. Because that is what we're giving up as an IC in exchange for the freedom of a flexible schedule.
Sorry, MTSOs... you can't keep having your cake and eating it, too....Need someone glued to their chairs? TOUGH!
Constant Transtech emails saying they know work is low, but flex . . . .
This is NOT rumor. Does no good to talk to the company. They themselves are putting out the NO WORK emails to us. They are aware of it. Why talk to them them?
Sometimes when it is slow in the morning, I e-mail the office and flex my hours to work a few hours in the evening depending on what my plans are. I have found the work ALWAYS picks up later in the afternoon. I know this doesn't work for everybody, but I always manage to get more than my minimum by being flexible when I can be.
Am looking to slow down, does flex time even exist anymore or per diem ? Would appreciate any input, looking to do approximately 10 - ? hrs a week to keep up skills.
Is it a given you can flex and make up time or (sm)
do you have to have specific permission from your supervisor? I know when I worked for MQ it was always designated when you could and couldn't make up time.
Flex time? Can you tell me how that works? nm
Do you find you have to flex time too much?
I do sometimes. I picked a set schedule with my company for a reason, and I have a life outside of medical transcription. I don't think companies get that sometimes.
By flex your time, do you mean the window they give you (sm)
or something else? I can't even get the hours in during the window for running out of work. Do you just mean make up time during the week? thanks.
Does Medquist's part time flex
allow you to work any hours you want or are you tied to a schedule? I am thinking of applying for extra money. I am a little leery of the pool, but thought I might try it if need be. I know many people don't like MQ based on what I read on this board, but think there must still be something decent about them since so many people still do work there. Thanks you in advance for any information.
Do we need to schedule those hours through STM or just let her know we are increasing or (sm)
is there a chance too many are adding hours and they have to tell some of us No thanks. I can't imagine they would do that as nice as they have been about everything else. But I came from Medquist, so anything is possible in my book.
if you don't need the benefits, i recommend part-time flex...
Part time flex requires 2,000 lines per week minimum, but you can do more if you like. You need to submit a schedule, but some production supervisors are flexible...mine is very flexible.
They do not provide equipment. Platform is DocQScribe and is great.
I have been with MQ for about 7 years, and they have been very good to me. I have great accounts but low work volume on them. Always seem to be overstaffed on my accounts, but that is why I have a backup with another company.
Questions about Medquist Flex Part-time
if you are flexible part-time and also do they allow any time off with pay or do you just take that time off without pay? Thank you!
Is Spheris just hiring for flex time positons?
i am not full of crap, sorry. cpl and hours inside
I just answered a post asking for ppls salaries. I most definately am not full of crap. I don't work 14-hour days or 7 days a week. I work 6 days a week totalling 48 hours a week if that, usually less. My cpl is 0.12 and as I said before I type 500 lines an hour. You do the math.
I did fail to mention however that is before taxes, which as an IC I have to take care of myself every year and I do not receive health benefits either, paid time off, or sick days.
Still, that kind of money IS possible regardless of what the Naysayers seem to believe is possible. It's exactly that type of close mindedness that keeps a person from succeeding or expanding their horizons to better things. I guess some ppl won't believe the truth when they hear it....
At MQ you have to work your full scheduled hours.
They need the have all the hours covered for stats and such. I dont understand the 2 different offers for FT, I would think the latter would be PT. If you get paid by production then it would be entirely up to you how many hours you wanted to work a day. Does the 8 hour day pay more or have better benefits?
Why would they give you a choice of 16 or 24 hours. Usually part time is anything under 37 hours.
That is extremely odd. Well they must have something up their sleeves. Well I will be working elsewhere part time as well as with MQ as I have no intention of sitting 40 hours with no work from Amherst and be expected to have 150 lph with no work. What is all this window of work time they said they would be giving everyone. I figured all along they would do away with SE. I have already been looking around and ordered a new computer to send theirs back.
the day has 24 hours, I work only 6-8 hours, so, lots of time to post...nm
I'm lookin for part-time work (about 3-4 hrs daily) after 13 years of full-time, anyone know of a
company that is hiring flexible part-time? I'm starting a career in real estate but don't want to totally quit transcription, but I think most places require 25 hours a week and I cant work weekends, as real estate sales are the biggest on the weekend with open houses and people off work to shows homes to. If you know of a place I'd sure appreciate the info. Thanks!
Not what I was told; 3500/wk part-time & 6000 wk/full-time. nm
