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!

MDI-MD: What are daily line requirements for full-time/part-time? Thanks! nm
Part-time MT getting full-time work ??????

TransTech should not be giving out work to PT people on their DAY OFF, or any other time BEFORE a full-time MT has enough work    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you! I'm looking for part-time work to supplement my no-work full-time job.

Not what I was told; 3500/wk part-time & 6000 wk/full-time. nm
Precyse Solutions is hiring part-time and full-time right now.
Saw this on their website.
I have one full-time job and 2 part-time jobs. It can be tricky at times, sm
but at least I now have plenty of work always. I have some big financial goals, and right now that seems to be the only way to accomplish it.  I can't see any reason why it would not be legal -- why would you say that?  I am cheating no one, except myself (out of sleep and a social life).  Fortunately, I am single with no children or anything.  I cannot imagine doing this if I had a family.  At least my dogige understands. 
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.
Solution: Find another job, part time or full time.
Post your resume, hope for the best.
Depends on how flexible you need to be and if full-time or part-time
They are a little more flexible if you are part-time.  Not so much full-time, where you can be a little flexible within the day (not a strict 8-5), but if you are scheduled for Monday, you have to work Monday unless you request off, and if you are scheduled for a Holiday, you have to work the holiday, unless you request off.  They encourage you to clock out every time you are not typing to keep your lph rate up, which means an 8 hour day can turn into 12 hours at the computer.  If they run out of work (which they do quite often), you have to make the time up.  They are also leaning more towards Voice Recognition, so MTs are getting trained on that, but not sure what percent will go that way.  It does affect how much work you may get though in the other accounts.   
They are advertising for full time HIM now, do they still hire part time? nm
Question on MDI-MT full time vs. part time
Does anyone know how many lines per week or per pay period are required at MDI-MT to be considered full time?  Thanks.
Full time is 40 hours, and yes they have part-time.
Were you full time or part time?
I would like to get about 1500 lines a day in if possible - not possible? The pay seems good.
Not sure about part time but for full time you get SM
up to 12 hours to do a 7 hour shift. Webmedx requires 35 hours a week for full time, not 40.
Full Time vs. Part Time
Can anyone tell me how many minutes of dictation is considered to be full time?  I do clinic dictation and am wondering if I am actually doing part-time work or full time?
I have a full time and part time job also. nm
No PTO for part-time. Not sure if you can work part-time or not since recent rule change. sm
You do pay a deposit for their equipment.
part-time IC is 5000/pay period and full time IC is 10,000 per pay period. Need to talk with
recruiter about cpl, I'm sure it varies with experience. 
Anyone know of a company looking for 13 years experience to work flexible part-time shift
I'm getting my real estate license but still want to keep my transcription job part-time.  I'm looking for a job that will allow me to work about 20 hours a week and still have the flexibility to show a home on the spur of the moment.  Thanks, I would appreciate any info!
are you full or part time
If you are making at laest 20 an hour, this would have to be part-time, otherwise the numbers don't add up, should be at least 40K
Last year $36K part time, going to make more this year full time BUT sm

I AGREE it IS getting harder to make money.  I used to make $24 very part time 10 years ago and now...well it is Word and platforms versus WP5.1.  I got 7.5 cents a byte line then and I get 9.5 cents a character line now.  That IS a huge different in point of fact.


Is there any difference between full and part time IC status at DSG?
Trying to narrow down my choices and make my decision.  Thanks! 
Full time but no work half the time-nm
i work 3 part-time jobs now. it can be confusing if you are learning both at the same time, but sm
other than that not a problem for me. best to get one down before starting to other or you might become overwhelmed.
MDI-MD hires statutory employees, full or part time. sm
Their web site is www.mditrans.com.  They pay well, always on time, direct deposit, and genuinely care about their employees.  Good luck!
They no longer hire part-time and may be eliminating part-time employees within the next 6 months.
They are going to have those that are PT go FT if possible. Some accounts require 1 weekend day, but not all. Most transcriptionists have 1 account with 1 back-up account. I know that they are hiring for hospital accounts in medical records and radiology right now.
Part & Full Time Data Entry & Document Coding Position - Sara McDaniel - HR Administrator
This company has ads on other web sites. You have to pay them $55 to do a background check up front. Guess what? If you don't get hired, they've got your $55. Don't know if it's legit - just posting facts.
I'm back in college part-time after 24+ years
I figured this is the only to get my foot to the right job. My daughter will be 11 soon and by the time I finish my school that I did not finish after 24+ years, I could definitely be making 2 or 3 times more money than 7 cents per line. I can work at my local Starbucks part-time making $10.00 an hour with excellent benefits!!!
There is a part-time and a flexible part-time, just left there and they offered
me both. Flexible, however, is more or less when they need you (I.e. weekends), part-time is fixed hours.
My thoughts exactly, why waste my time when you know you are only hiring full time? nm
I do not even work full-time, much less 2 but
what I was saying was exactly the posting below yours, not worry about things you have no control over. If you are not making enough money and you need more, then YOU have to do something about it. Worrying about that or anything else does no good.
I work full-time for Proscript..... sm
And I never run out of work, but I have 2 large hospitals as my primary accounts, and 3 clinics as my secondary - probably why I don't run out of work ever.

If you are considering full time employee-with-benefits status - a minimum of 11,000 lines per pay period.

If you need more info - please email me

I work full time for a national and as an IC
for a local company. The FT is 40 hours per week, the IC is when I want to work, usually about 10 to 12 hours a week.
Full-time MTs, what LD company do you use for work (if LD is required, of course) ?
Yes I know they hire part time because I referred someone there for part time.
They are internet based.
From what I understand, the part-time positions will be only be for those that are already part-time
It is not a restructuring of the company, just of some of the existing part-time positions.

I know that there are a few employees who have been with Keystrokes for many, many years who are part-time and they will not displaced.

Other than that, there have been many discussions why there will not be any new part-time employees hired, and I really don't think they will back down on that.
DVHP gives vacation time to part-time people. nm
OSi with part time health insurance and paid time off
OSi does offer health insurance and paid time off for part time.  Yes, there have been changes.  Yes, there will probably be more changes.  I don't see anywhere that hasn't had changes.  If they don't change they will be out of business the way the economy is these days, just like some other companies.  If they don't make money, then I don't make money.  So, what is so different with OSi compared to other companies?  I see complaints constantly about all companies.  I don't think it is the fault of the company that they outsource or use voice recognition.  It just is life on life's terms these days.  There is still enough work for us, at least for me. 
Part-time and still never enough work. nm

Could anyong give me the name of companies that hire part time, provide equipment, and still use dial up?  Thanks
Looking for part-time IC work..

Are there any companies out there that have part-time work available and will just leave you alone and let you do the work?  I produce client-ready material and really need very little attention :)  I already work as an employee with one company and an IC with another.  I'm starting to feel uneasy with my current IC position and am just hoping that there is a company out there that will allow me to do the work without feeling the need to micromanage?

Part-time ER work?

Hoping someone can help me out.  I work full-time already in acute care and would like to find a flexible part-time job.  Benefits aren't important to me since my full-time job takes care of that, so a great line rate is mainly what I'm looking for.  I have 5 years of acute care experience, and am mainly wanting ER work for a part-time job. 

Any suggestions? 

How is JLG to work for part time ?
I may be going with them and would like any input, good or bad, on how the company is to work for.  I'll only be part time but it's important that I have enough work so I can pay the wonderful creditors that I owe my life to.  TIA 
part time work

I picked up some part time work by calling  some of the smaller local companies. They often pay better than the large cos and you can almost ways be an IC with them and work very flexible hours. Just a thought!

Why is that? I only work part-time, but think sm
it is a great company.  The owner is wonderful, QA is great, and pay has not only been on time but has been early. 
Low work and looking for part-time
I know how you feel. I am now looking for part-time work.
Can you work part-time for TTS?

I'm been reading through all the companies out there hiring, including the company I work for now, which is unbeliveable..  I'm looking for part-time work to supplement my work with the company I work for now.   The work is starting to slow down for us so I wanted to find something part-time.  Can anyone suggest a good company to work for?   Thanks !

part-time work
I am not sure of your background or experience, but I just started a part-time position with Phoenix Medcom and they are very nice. They do have part-time positions and you are told right up front what you can expect with regards to line count, etc.  Everyone is extremely nice, helpful, and organized. I have local accounts and so far this is exactly the supplemental work I was hoping to find.
