Which companies consider full-time 35 hours per week? THX......nm
Yes it does, but 35 hours a week is all that is required to be full time and get bennies.
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.
150 lph x7-8 hrs or 5500 lines a week for 35 hr min.
Anyone know what full time is at Transtech? Lines or hours? Do they flex schedule? nm
Can anyone tell me the required amount of hours/lines for part time per week for Focus? nm
The minimum is 5500 per week, NOT 6600 per week. I think you made a typo. :)
--full time, 40 hrs/week (nm)
How many hours in a week do you normally work to get your lines in?
Just curious. I work 50-plus hours here to make it work for our family, would love to cut back
Anyone know if TransTech will do PT less than 20 hours per week? nm
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! 

You have to average 11000 a week to be full time.
The editing/straight transcribing average varies by account. I have one that is about 50/50, two that are about 70/30. Every straight transcribed line counts as 2 edited lines. We also have new accounts too so of course those will be more straight transcribing until the doctors get recognized.
Anyone know what is the full time line requirement per week? nm
6000 lines per pay period (2-weeks) and 20 hours per week that is
Just clarifying.
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
Why would anyone work 8 hours a week. The poster above said 16 or 24 hours a week.
That is a great gig you have going. Do you have to work weekends?
No, they did not just raise the minimum at TT. The quota is 5500 per week for FT
and I have not had any problem whatsoever reaching it.

Good luck.
I used to work for them part-time -- I think 20 hours/week is the minimum. nm
First, what kind of time frame are we talkin? 6000 lines in a week?

I ask because 6 cpl is horrible and if they expect you to produce 12,000 lines in a week in order to get 9 cpl, well that's just nuts.

But I digress, you original question was should you continue to work when you do not have access to your line count --> NO!  And the fact that you are getting the run around should be sending up red flags.

Now you couple that with the 6 cpl and I would have to say this place you work at sucks!

16 hours a week or 8 a week and get
401 K.
Sorry, I work 15 hours a day 5 days a week and 5 hours the other 2, when I come here I dont proof.
Any companies that allow line count rather than hours or less than 20 hours per week? (sm)

Wouldn't mind having something extra especially with Christmas and general winter expenses coming up but working a FT job and really don't want to do another 20 hours on top of that. 


Must we choose either 8, 16 or 24 hours. Why would they want someone only working 8 hours a week.
That is less than SE are required now.
It often takes my check a full week to get here but (sm)
I don't really think it's because they are mailed late; I have relatives in Florida and the mail from/to them can take forever as well. Since they quit direct deposit I basically just changed my expectation of when my check would arrive. I believe they do still offer the option of delivery by FedEx for something like $10/pp, which I used for a while before DD and my check was here like clockwork every payday. Whatever else I might say about JLG, I've always been paid on time.
20 hours per week

I have 3 accounts and work about 20  to 22 hours per week on them including printing, delivering, cutting apart chart notes, clean up their dictation, change things, etc.  and I make betweem the three of them (5 docs, 2 surgeons, 2 IM's and one plastic surgeon) $3200 to 3400.   Guess I am lucky.   Work at a clinic doing electronic chart notes and get paid $15 hour plus benefits and put in as many hours as I want -- up to 20 and sometimes bring tapes home and make 1200 to 1400 there.  Not bragging but the accounts are out there.



because anything over 40 hours a week
has to be paid at OT line rate if you are at full-time employee status.  That's probably why.
IC - 30 hours week. nm
32 hours/week
More like 80 hours/week hu?
More like 80 hours/week hu? Unless you work your booty off and have no life or have a slew of macros that you use for EVERY word transcribed.
Only 36-40 hours a week
It actually only takes me 6-8 hours a day of transcribing to make that much. The platform is great, and I do nothing but ER reports. Love it!
Anyone know of a company that needs about 10 hours a week...
I'm looking for part-time work, about 10 hours a week.  I've got 13 years full-time acute care experience and just need a few hours, Mon-Fri, morning or night!
Interviewed the other day - PT is 15 hours per week. (sm)

Don't know much about the way the jobs load, but she did say people are only taking 2 weeks or less to get up to speed.  (Of course, I know, they can tell you anything.) 

The recruiter was very pleasant, the test was a verbal thing, and the pay was decent.



how may hours a week do you work
or maybe a better question is how many lines a day do you do?
how many hours a week do you work to get this?
so, you don't really know what it's like to work a national.
How many hours do you work a week? (NM)
$4000 - PT - 20 hours week as IC. nm
What companies have 10 or less hours per week...
Most companies want 20 hours for part time, but with working outside the home, it's hard to swing it.  Anyone know of any?  Thanks so much.
At mine it's 8 hours/day, 40 hrs/week.
What they DON'T bother to tell you is that with the minimum line count you're going to be expected to produce daily, it's going to take you 12+ hours to get it all done. 4 hours of which, you know, you will NOT be paid for.

THAT's 'full-time' employment in the MT world.
Spheris PT 20 hours week?

Do they require 20 hours a week for PT and/or weekends? 

Not really...Minimum of 35 hours per week plus SM
more hours if they need you to work which means no part time.
PT has to be 24 hours a week at 100 LPH minimum.
sorry should have put an average of 24 hours per week.
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.
I lacked 5 hours for the last week. Think that'll be okay since
work was low? I was going to make it up Sunday, but work still low and didn't want to take from the scheduled folks.
Yes. I earn almost $40,000 working 32 hours a week. nm
I work 1 job, about 36 hours/week and make at
least that amount, plus have vacation and PTO, also an employee so they pay taxes.   I found that working multiple account keep me from making money because I have to learn so many doctors and be aware of the different formats/platforms and account specific stuff.  I used to work a bunch of jobs part-time and was working 7 days a week and lots and lots of hours and not making very much money.   If I worked the same hours on one account I could have easily made $80,000+/year. 
MQ requires 24 hours per week for PTO benefits.nm.
The MTs can't be forced to work over 40 hours in a week
unless paid OT pay. If the work is not getting done, maybe they need additional help on the account or MTs who can actually do the work in a reasonable time to stay in TAT.
