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
Precyse Solutions is hiring part-time and full-time right now.
Saw this on their website.
MDI-MD: What are daily line requirements for full-time/part-time? Thanks! nm
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
My thoughts exactly, why waste my time when you know you are only hiring full time? nm
Full time but no work half the 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.
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    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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
As far as I know they only pay if you have AT&T. I'm full-time also and don't get anything fo
JLG does for full time.
They do not for part time though.
consider the MT already has a full-time job, though
Full time
Thanks for the info!
Can you tell me what they consider to be full-time? TIA nm
I do VR full time...
The best platform by far is Escription which is very productive.  I was nervous about VR too but even with 50% pay per line I am making a lot more money overall.  I do have some typing but the older the account is the better the VR is.  Some notes i barely have to edit now.  If I straight type I average around 200 lph (acute care) but on VR I do well over 500+.  Escription learns indefinitely, so the longer the account has been there the better it is.  I try to keep my lines per hour on VR at least above 250 which even on a brand new account has never been an issue, so I have made out.  The typing break is great and I absolutely love it.  If you have more specific questions, feel free to email me.  (I am just an MT and not management for a company or anything like that.) 
For full-time
line count is 11,000 per pay period and for PT it is 5000. They're pretty reasonable on QA, not nearly as bad as other companies.
full time
full time pay scale for IC 3000 lines 7.5 cpl, 6000 9 cpl anything above 6000 is 10 cpl. 
45K full time.
If and when you do go full time - please keep us
posted.  I will be interested to see if it continues to be easily 250 lines per hour.  Some companies take the good part timers and lure them into full time just to dump horrible dictators on them.  Let us know if this happens to you.
Should have said this is a full-time
requirement. Part-time is much less.
Full time
A lot of foreign docs...
$900 = full time?

Can anyone explain how $900 equals full-time?  Does everyone have the same line rate so that it takes everyone the same amount of time and sweat to get to the $900?.  Thanks.


Full time
Excellent question! I never believed the $900 minimum for full time status was fair, and I still don't. No, we do not all make the same line rate. No, we do not all have straight typing jobs. No, we do not all do the same types of reports or work on the same accounts. There are just too many variables in my book to even think this is equitable. My workload is 95% VR with mostly DS, H&P, and consults. No straight-typing, line-gobbling, insert-happy OP notes to rack up the dollars here. If we take the above example to make minimum and translate to VR rates (60% of straight line rate) we come up with a minimum of approximately 21,950 lines of VR to keep full time status. Like she said, hopefully most folks are making over the minimum, maybe, maybe not. IF the work is steady on your primary account, it's doable. This hasn't been the case in months on my account. Another thing, don't let anyone tell you that with VR you can produce twice as many lines than straight typing, NOT! So, up goes the requirement for full time status on the VR accounts as far as line count.  Like I said, excellent question!  Nope, still don't agree with this $900 minimum. I'm not sure what the answer would be with all the variables, but it seems to me they could come up with something a bit more logical with all the great technology out there.
I am full time
I am full time, but I hope for the PT people that is not the case. Also, I wondered about the insurance for the PT people who have not had insurance for awhile. In order for any pre-existing conditions to be covered, you would have to be covered for 1 full year before going full-time with Transcend and getting their insurance. If you already have insurance then you don't have to wait any time before being fully covered. If you do not have insurance, then you will wait a 3-month waiting period and they 1 year before being covered for any pre-existing conditions. This is why I kept my Cobra insurance and was full-time with MDI.
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. 
are you full time or statutory?
how long you been with them?
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
Full time employee.
That is supposed to be the norm for VA accounts if you do all work types.
The full time requirement is (sm)
1000 lpd. Not sure about part time. I am on the new ortho account that just started. I just started so cannot really answer the next question, but they seem to give you a primary and leave it at that. They do like to cross train, which everyone does. They send a foot pedal, but you get online with the tech person to download the software. It is very user friendly and the best I have ever worked on!!
I only know about Medware and full time with them (sm)
is 32 hours.
Are you working full time?
MT that has been there 3 years, have you have full-time work the entire 3 years? 
Oh, you'll get full time
but it will be full-time ESL. You won't get the full-time high line volume accounts unless you are a good ole girl. And the turnover there is frightening (because of the ESLs).

Keystrokes - when they say full-time- sm
Can someone tell me what their full-time entails?  They say they are flexible with hours but you must hit 1200 lines?  Does that mean you must work 8 hours or are you done when you hit the 1200 lines?  Do you have to let them know what hours you will be working?
they do but as of their last job ad they were only hiring full-time...
if you are working full time and your
MTSO says as of tomorrow we will call you when we need you, aren't you going to be just a wee bit concerned about how to earn next month's rent? (especially for the single moms like me out here). This hasn't happened to me personally, but to be told one is not a good enough MT (being demoted not only in amount of work but in cpl) is demoralizing and one would need time to rebound from that.

Now, if you want per diem knowing that your work is inferior and that is what you want to enter into and agree upon beforehand, that is different than what I was referring to above.
She cannot give up her full-time job
currently because she is testing the waters.  There are a lot of posters on these boards stating they feel like job hoppers.  I do not think she is giving anyone a bad name.  You personally make your own bed.  You must be QA.  QA can get on a power trip and just never let up.  I have not tested or worked for a company yet that does not ping you on something or other.  It is just insane out there.  No wonder people want to get out of this field.  Posters slamming other posters is negative and certainly not positive.  We should be empowering each other, not assuming variables on other MT's situations when we really do not know.  No offense, but that is just plain nastiness in my opinion. 
--full time, 40 hrs/week (nm)
I think it is all nearly full-time people now..they may have (sm)
a few people working part-time but I'm not sure. 
I believe they only hire full-time.
I really think it's only full-time at the moment
I have always been full-time, so I may be wrong, but I did hear that they are starting to phase out hiring part-timers, but again, I could be wrong there. That's just what I heard a while back.
I don't know if it is the same on every account for full time.
Mine is 11K lines per payperiod then incentive scale and I get differential for shift and weekends. And yes, they have lost of different insurance plans to choose from, another reason why I picked them. They were the most like a hospital job I could find working for MTSO, since I could find no in-house jobs these days! I am sure you would be happy, good luck!
The full time status is
12,000 lines per pay period and 10,000 for adjusted full-time.
