In Reply to: I have positive experience's with OSi - so it isn't all bad
and especially thrilled when they get offered more for their experience coming in than sombody training for goodness sakes. I just can't get behind that rationale.

Part-timers cost as much to have on the books as full timers with only
a fraction of the revenue. It costs the same to run a check, mail things, send equipment, set up with IS, etc with PT as FT.
What she got promoted to =
Queen of the Universe.
Oh yea OSI newbies are promoted to QA too!!!
Seeing is believing.
The HR person is not new. They just promoted someone sm
from inside to that position and changed the way that hiring is done. It has not delayed anything, quite the opposite. As usual, Keystrokes is looking for ways to IMPROVE, which obviously is not allowed here.
The worst offender has just been promoted at OSI
She will be on the chopping block when they hear from wage and hour folks.
I think we are going to be working for a big brother company. Why do we have to put our escription lines in a completely different tracking system? Makes no sense to me and a waste of my time, especially when I have 3+ account every day.
You sound disgruntled; no wonder you weren't promoted from within... sm
sounds like sour grapes. Since when does top management share the internal workings and all the goings on with employees?
Congrats. I'm sure they were thrilled to see your resume come their way!! nm
Having not had any in 12 yrs, I am thrilled by it all. Having the Blues is great sm
I was so very surprised. When I had it that I paid on my own, I had about like the lower tier and I paid $200 a month for it and had a pricier med copay.
I said 12 years and it more like 15. Imagine my delight to find the same or lower copays than all those years ago and find a cheaper premium too! I am so glad to have it. The other was not available in my area and this IS.
Not thrilled about the new 40-hour week but SM
am still positive. An issue is how much of the current slowdown is actually due to the crash in the economy (on top of the holiday season), a change no company could have planned for.
Also, something I find encouraging is that WedMedx has a vowed goal of developing and providing its clients with very high-quality MTs, excuse me, MCSs (medical content specialists). If that continues, it means doing what it takes to hold onto them since these are people who can always normally find another job.
To the MT who was *talking* w/ me a few weeks ago re MDI-MD who said Dorothy would be thrilled ...SM
to hear from me.....well, I finally decided to email them about a position. It's sure been long enough, hasn't it? lol I appreciate your encouragement and your help. We'll just have to wait and see if they have a part-time slot for me. I wasn't sure if I ever expressed my appreciation to you then, and I sure hope you see this now and recognize yourself in my subject line. Thanks again!!
LOL! Yep, people are thrilled with system that is slow and
Should mention that my VR is 7 cpl - 2 cents below my regular pain...I would be thrilled with 500lph
Keep up the great work!!!!
can any part-timers tell me...
If you have requested time off without pay in the past and if it was at all a problem?
...old timers. Very sad situation for many of us. nm
do they take part timers?.....nm
any part-timers for JLG
Just wondering if there are any part-timers for JLG- wondering if you went from full-time to part-time? What are the requirements?
Why don't they want part timers? sm
What is the quota for full time? I think they're missing out on some good MTs who for many reasons can only work part time.
Will never understand why part timers get
same or better pay than full time people. I know they do not get paid benefits, but it is still the full time people who are the backbone and need to be appreciated.
I know there are some part-timers working there.
There aren't any benefits available to PT though.
do they hire part-timers?
I'm not sure I'd want 1200 lines a day. Is that a requirement?
It is tough on part timers.
I think that's probably the point. Webmedx benefits by having more full time employees. I don't personally like it because I'm part time and it's a pay cut for me, but I do understand.
I believe it was just the part-timers that got the e-mail. sm
Work volumes are extremely low, however.
No longer paying any PTO for part-timers
With the push of a button and an email going out, they informed their MT's today NO MORE PTO for PT.
How do part-timers "kill rates?" nm
Part timers often do not carry their weight.
forcing the full timers to pick up the slack and resent them.
Does Keystrokes hire part timers? Thx. nm
They got rid of all their long timers and hired in newbies
but talk about office politics! If the OM doesn't like you one day (and her moods change daily), you may find you have no work until her mood changes or if another MT is having a crisis and needs more work, yours may be sent to that MT out of pity.
There are no part-timers being hired anymore.
They are FT only.
Are the part-timers quitting DeVenture?
It's been about a month now with very little if any work for part-timers. Anyone else quitting?
Does anyone know if Webmedx hires part-timers? TIA (nm)
I think part timers will be giving up their benefits?! sm
I got an uneasy feeling in one of the conference calls when they were saying how excited they were about this whole thing and how things would not change. I e-mailed someone at DeVenture asking if us part times would lose our benefits and the response was that she did not know and would have to get a hold of someone at Transcend. I really need the health insurance that I now pay the whole amount on. It doesn't sound good or look good to me, but will wait and see.
But most of us are unhappy there now...especialy those of us who are long-timers.
Any "long-timers" with Focus Infomatic?
I am thinking about applying to FI and I was wondering if there is anybody out there who has worked for them at least a little while. I checked some of the archives about Focus but is there anyone who likes working for them?
Doesn't seem to be a lot of others hiring part timers though
Do they use part-timers? Is their software friendly and accurate? Thx. nm
TransHealth has paid holidays for full timers. nm
Absolutely not. In my recruting experience many were old-timers having worked
It is frightening.
They've been around for years. Some of us old-timers applied long
Transtech part-timers schedule question
I know TT requires their FT employees to either rotate full weekends or work a schedule that includes either a Saturday or Sunday. Does anyone know if they require this of the PT people?
Webmedx- Do they offer bennies for part timers?
Also, what does the phone interview consists of. I was told it would be a 30 minute interview.
I wanna think that OSI has an ad up stating that now have benefits for part-timers..Other than that,
I do not think many do. Everyone was saying how Wedmedx did, but when I checked into it, their idea of PT was like 35 hours or something, but I could be wrong and I do believe they are also fairly rigid about those 35 hours. I think anyone that offers health insurance is going to ask for a fairly strict schedule and probably FT but you never know. You might also check into your local hospitals. I know they do have insurance and usually pretty good for PT.
Any companies letting part-timers buy in on the health insurance? sm
Just wondering if there are any transcription companies where you can work 20 or 25 hours a week and get in on the health insurance plan even if you have to pay the whole premium yourself? Thanks
Do they have enough work to keep you busy? Do full timers have any flexibility in their hours?
Competitive line rates?
looking for transcription co that needs at-home part-timers and provides equip/software
Does anyone know of a transcription company that needs part-time at-home transcriptionists and provides equipment and/or software? Thanks!
Webmedx offers incentive scale to part timers. NM
Does Transtech require one weekend day to be worked for part-timers? Thanks!
Don't part-timers with Chronicle have to work the entire weekend? Saw in a recent ad. nm
Any companies offer part-timers chance to buy into group insurance? need coverage ....
I've been looking at prices for solo medical insurance and while I can probably afford some coverage, I'm feeling rather paranoid about having insurance canceled if I actually get sick -- I'm fairly ignorant about what protections may have been passed and may just be responding to other people's horror stories.
Anyway, I'm not entirely sure I want to work full time for any of the nationals ... they seem to have gotten awfully rigid wrt daily line counts within certain fixed hours ... some days I'm simply creaky and hate feeling pressured ... so part time to start seems more reasonable than jumping in with both feet. Any infor or recommendations appreciated ...
