Yes. I earn almost $40,000 working 32 hours a week. nm
Companies have to earn loyalty (sm)
Besides, all prospective employees go through a background check.  It's not like these MTSOs are completely in the dark.  I cannot believe (or can I?) that some companies ask for people's screen names to monitor stuff they say on a message board.  If they're that petty and paranoid, there's good reason for it, and I betcha dollars to donuts it has *absolutely* nothing to do with MT attitudes.  If anyone is spilling inappropriate information here, there's a moderator to take care of that.

BTW, now that I'm happy with my company, I am loyal.  In fact, I'm so positive that when *I* post on here about my job, people often give me this oh, stuff it, Polyanna attitude. 

The only thing that could possibly get me to leave is the promise of all that money getting my own accounts would bring.  I don't think I'd like to deal with all the hassle involved, though...but if someone had a Powerpoint presentation to convince me it was easy as fallin' off a log, I'd be very interested!
Any companies allow as little as 16 hrs a week? nm
Any companies allow 3 day week?
I currently work 13 hours T-Sat as an employee and really do not want to go to 5 days. Would also desire opportunity to earn incentive $$. Any leads? Thanks in advance.
Less than 40 week FT companies
Any companies worth working for that have a 35 hour work week?
These are the companies I got from a post a week or so ago...SM
MDI Florida, Medical INK, AccuStat Carolinas, Proveras, Sten-Tel, Focus, Chase.
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.
Companies that pay weekly or every other week
Anyone have a list of decent companies that pay weekly or at least every other week? TIA.
What companies acknowledge MT week and, if so, what do you receive? nm
Any companies out there that allow you to work 5-10 hours a week?
I have a full time job, but need to make a bit more income.  Are there any good companies that might work for me?  Thanks for any input.
So what companies did something for MT week? So far I see Webmx, etransplus, sm
Keystrokes, Proscript -- anyone else?  Seems pretty lean this year.
Any companies let you accrue PTO with less than 40 hours per week? (sm)
WMX used to give  FT benefits at 35 hours per week.  I can do without the insurance, etc.  but really hate to give up PTO.
Most companies have a 2 week training period and if meeting
production and QA one can opt out of it early.
Any companies offering benefits on 35 hrs per week or less except Webmedex? Nm
Which companies consider full-time 35 hours per week? THX......nm
well believe what you wish. I do know what I earn
and I have no reason to lie about it. I made almost $70,000 one year as an MT so it is not as much as I made as an MT, but it doesn't kill you like being an MT.

My benefits are also fully paid, which also adds to the bottom line.

I can earn PTO if I exceed
the specified line count each pay period. I am eligible for the dental/vision insurance (which I took), and the FSA (which I did not). I will also be eligible for the 401K after a year. So far, so good.
One way could mean that you could earn commission by

giving your employer or former employers client information to this type of person and if they landed a client then you would be paid the commission.  It is a very unethical way of doing business and it is not condoned on this site.

I think $14 is low. I earn $18 an hour
and have been paid over $16 for the past 5 years. I realize many do not make that much, but if you have lots of QA experience particularly in difficult areas such as ESLs and ops, all work types, etc., one should not take less than $16. I work at home with benefits.
Thank you! My thoughts exactly. I earn more
than that but if I could not get it, I would not do the work.
I agree with that - you do have to earn it
I am with a great company, and I work my tail off. I absolutely love what I do for a lot of reasons. I was introduced to this by a neighbor years ago and found the whole thing very interesting. Working at home is a huge bonus, so I got the education and experience. I have had a couple of experiences where I have left a job and most of that was simply due to not having the work. We rely on my income and I think that a lot of our fellow MTs really do want a when i feel like it job. Then again, those people just make the diligent hard workers look that much better!

I am not an old timer by any means but I know MTs with double my experience who are constantly offered low wages simply because they have built a reputation and/or tested poorly.

I get paid very well and the company knows that. I am an IC but I work every day consistently. When extra help is needed, I do it. This board really is just like walking into a hospital -- you can immediately tell the difference between the nurses who went into it because they are caring and want to help others and those who went into it for the money. You can tell the MTs who went into it because they find the work challenging and want to contribute to good patient care and those who simply wanted something convenient for them.
MQ looking to earn a living
With ASR making money is getting tougher and tougher. Years of transcription experience counts for nothing here.
When I saw what I was going to earn this year, I
d 2
CPL here. No limits set on how much I can earn.
See the TransRAD ad for 7 cpl? No one can earn a living on that! If you see this

how many hours did you work to earn $126? - nm
I don't believe it - I work there too, have to earn my money - but I love it there.

Well I do earn a pretty decent salary
and I am not talking anything under $50,000. I have heard of some of you recruiters who earn $30,000. I would not do it at all for that. I know one woman who earns $58,000 as a recruiter. I know another who earns $42,000. I know another who is paid per head and I won't do it because that forces you to hire anyone.

For what I earn, yesI will keep an open phone line to an excellent potential employee.

I agree with tt112. Let them earn living at the
Oh yeah, I forgot.  A lot of other countries don't hand jobs to offshore entities at the expense of their own countrymen.   Btw, what country are YOU from?
Do you find that you are able to earn a good income with them?
Do you have ample work, or do you often have to resort to MT work to fill the time?
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. 


Ah, Michelle's a little tattle-tale!! Trying to earn some brownie points!

I work for a nat'l as an employee, and my PTO rate is now HALF of what I actually earn working. S
What you need personally to cover your bills should be the deciding factor. And what you MIGHT earn
You earn PTO as soon as you are working full-time and reaching minimums.
You are also required to work one weekend a month, but you get two days off during the week leading into the weekend.
You need to leave due to lack of work. Put in your 2-wk notice and move on. Gotta earn a living! nm
Full time with Transtech is both. 40 hours per week and 5500 lines per week.
Nope .. email on 1/18 promised "within the next week." Here we are, 1 week later and no info.
The minimum is 5500 per week, NOT 6600 per week. I think you made a typo. :)
i clear over 800 a week, 40/week; 30+ year experience. (nm)
I get my paycheck every week - that is enough for me! Happy MT week everybody! nm
I got laid off for MT Week. Happy MT Week to me!
Good last week - Slow this week.
I hope this is not an indication of things to come.  I am getting 1,200 lines a day but it is taking me all day to do it.  We seem to be out of work from 9-12 every day this week.  Hope things pick up after Labor Day.
16 hours a week or 8 a week and get
401 K.
Why would anyone work 8 hours a week. The poster above said 16 or 24 hours a week.
TransTech and Medware, are these companies considered large, medium-sized or small companies? (sm)
Yikes.. That is only inline with companies like Focus and such. "Real" companies pay their MTs
decent rate.  I make over 5 cpl editing. So, if I got that slap in the face, I'd be outta there.
Do the research...most companies, and not just MT companies, do not pay for maternity leave...
we get time off but not paid...and I really don't even understand the point of you posting this...
How do you know which companies are Nationals and which are smaller companies.
Is there a list somewhere? I'm new to this.
By "most of the companies", I meant MORE than MT companies.
Sten-Tel is the platform. Different companies use it, pay and how companies run are different. nm
