I like to work 2 part time jobs. sm
I don't like to put all my eggs in one basket. (Easter eggs LOL!)  That way if I lose one I still have one to fall back on.  Been burned too many times between offshoring and VR.
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. 
Work both jobs for awhile, part time for the new one. Most
of the MTSO will understand your reluctance to quit your old job until you are sure the new one will work. I have worked for two companies in the past year and told both that I would have to work part time until I was comfortable quitting my old job. I ended up keeping my old job because the new ones didn't work out. Also, 1 cpl decrease in pay isn't that much to make up if the work is good. Hopefully, you won't have to sit around waiting for work, and you can follow the BOS which will be easier for you and probably help you transcribe fater.
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.
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!
Part time jobs
Are you using your own equipment and working from home? If so, I don't see how their request can be legal. If you work your committed shift, it should be none of their business what you do from your own home on your own time whether you want to do another part-time job or go to the beech. They do not own you! You cannot embarrass yourself on this board. The majority of MTs on this board care what happens to their fellow MTs and are very understanding.
Part time flexible jobs
Can you share? I am interested in part time evenings and weekends. Thanks, Lucy
Question about two part time jobs

I currently work for a low-paying company who are basiclly okay otherwise, but have in their work contract that all your transcription time must be for their company (even above your committed hours).  Since the pay is so low (I'd mention it, but don't want to embarass myself on this board), I've been considering accepting a part time job as well anyway.

My question is this, Is there any way the first company could find out if I don't tell them?  I've been applying elsewhere, but just have not found another full time MT opportunity yet.

Are most part-time jobs with companies a few hours every day or are there
jobs that exist where you can work a few days during the week? If you can help, thank you!
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.

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.
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.
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.
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
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
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
Transcribing litigation part-time, looking for prn medical transcription with work available at 6:30 a.m. Eastern time.
Part-time work
Medquist allows part-time transcription in which 4000 lines have to be done in a pay period and the payperiod goes from the 1st to the 15th and 16th to the 31st.
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.
Only work available is part-time
Looking for Part-Time Work
I was just looking at this company. I don't know how things work there or any of these companies really because I have only worked for hospitals. Is there any place (including Supercript) that lets you work when you want and for how long you want? I have a full-time MT position at a local hospital and I'm just looking for something that will provide me some extra cash. Any help is greatly appreciated!
I work part-time with KS. nm
PRN or less than part-time work.
Does anyone know of any companies that hire people to work less than 20 hours per week or do not require a set schedule?
I work there part-time. sm
I enjoy it very much and am very satisified with my pay. I work part-time at 3 companies and have a couple of accounts of my own. Focus is the only place that actually encourages me to send to QA so that I can focus on production. I rarely do send to QA but it is certainly far more comfortable knowing that it is supported by the company, not frowned on.

Platform is great. Do really good with VR. Have 4 accounts and only those 4. Know them well.

try Alltype for part time work.
I have heard excellent things about them from other transcriptionists that I work with at my hospital
Ask to be put on another acct. I'm part time and work
full time hours because our account is always behind.
Shelly, you work part-time. You don't have to
person who works on it hours every single day.  Maybe you were one of the lucky ones who happened to get a glitch-free download, but I don't see how as the glitches are program-wide.  When I worked for Transcend I had nothing but problems with this program to the point that I quit working there.  I got tired of tearing my hair out every day dealing with all the technical problems and poor voice quality.
I work for 3 companies part time and....
don't have any work either. I made $50 in two weeks for one company, $40 for the other and $300 for the third. What a joke!! I do have to make a living to pay our house payment. I have been at this for almost 20 years....so SAD!!
PT'ers work part time because they are....sm

working on other private accounts....sheesh.......I spend half a week working for private mds and the other half working for MQ......what do you want from us PT'ers??????

Are you calling all PT'ers malingerers?  How unfair is that?  I work my arse off 24/7/365 and since I'm a young teen......so that's about 40 years!  The only YEAR I took off was to have a baby 25 years ago.

AGAIN, POSTERS, consider the source of the perps posting!!!

How rude!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

I only work part-time, and my production sm
depends on the reliability of my connection. On most days I do 30 minutes of dictation, which will yield 300-500 lines depending on everything. I have over 30 years' experience. FC uses Chartscript which is so simple to use. Just run a macro, type in patient's info as dictated, and you're on your way. Reports follow one after another in the document file for that account. As far as lot of work, I only know what's going on in my little world. I have plenty of work. Hope this helps. FC is IC only, BTW.
If they are so great why do you work there part time?
RE: If they are so great why do you work there part time?
Because I choose to.
