They no longer hire part-time and may be eliminating part-time employees within the next 6 months.

In Reply to: I have a few questions about Keystrokes - sm

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.

Webmedx hire part time employees...sm
I'm really happy there.  You might give them a try. 
Yes I know they hire part time because I referred someone there for part time.
They are internet based.
They are advertising for full time HIM now, do they still hire part time? 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.
I believe they do hire part time
I found pay to be above what most companies are offering these days, great benefits, and good positive people to work for.
Do they hire part-time?? n/m
Yes, they do hire part-time - sm
I don't think they are hiring at this time but it is worth putting your name in. They have a website. If you are good, I don't see why you would fail the test.
Do they hire part-time? nm
Do they hire part time? NM
Does MDI Hire Part Time IC's.....
I just looked on their web site and did not see any available jobs, so they might not be hiring at all. Any advice helpful. Thanks.
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.
There will always be a need for some part-time employees. sm
The above poster was partially correct in that we prefer full-time employees. There will always be evenings and weekends that work well for part time. What she might have meant is that we are not hiring very part time or on-call employees. Part time will mean 20 hours or more a week. The ones that are being phased out are the ones that do 1000 lines max a pay period or less. It does not make sense to use up equipment, etc on MTs who generate little to no revenue for the company. It also makes it difficult to schedule someone who does 100 lines a day a few days a week and everyone else has to work around them.

This should clear things up.
Does Keystrokes hire part-time? nm
Keystrokes - do they hire part time?SM
If they do, how many lines and do they have acute care or clinic and do you have to work weekends?  Thank you.
Does Webmedx hire part time?
Thanks to all. Which companied hire part time for VR? SM
Not interested in full time because I currently work approximately a 6 hour day, but want to start with minimal hours on VR. Any suggestions?
Does MDI Maryland hire part time IC's?
If so, does anyone know what their line requirements are for part-time?
Congrats! Do they hire part-time?
Are there any companies besides Amphion that hire part-time

I need a company that allows you to make your lines without demanding that you be on from this second to that second.  If it's part-time it's obviously because you have other things to do and your life doesn't revolve around a set schedule.  If I can get my work done at 3AM so why would that bother anybody?

Is there a company that doesn't mind when you work as long as you meet your quota and are accurate?

Who then will hire for part time and is a decent company?(nm)

Don't think they hire part time. Old posts are not favorable. nm
Amanda, does e TransPlus hire part-time IC? (nm)
Are there any good companies that hire part time?

I have two years of acute care experience, and I need a part-time job to supplement my current income.  If everything works out, I will need to go to full time in March.  At this time, I can only work Friday and Saturday nights.

I have been applying to several companies, but they keep giving me the run around.  One company even told me I did very well on their test and that I was put in a pool of transcriptionists to be contacted.  The recruiter called me once, and I missed her call.  I called her back and left a message, but I have not heard anything else from her. 

Any advice would be appreciated. TIA!  

Do any MTSOs hire part-time...I just figured out
that I can make just as much working part-time MT somewhere else than working at Medquist full-time as an MEE (what a joke).  After 3 paychecks of half of what I was making before 7/1/09, that is what it amounts to.  Might as well spend more time with my family, but I only see full-time jobs posted.  Any suggestions would be great so I can have a life again!  Much appreciated!
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!
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.
Are there any companies who offer health benefits to part time employees?
Need insurance.
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.
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: 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.   
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. 
Its holiday time. I just took a part time job at K-Mart and
it is really quite fun because I get to interact with humans and do not have to stare at a computer. My part time benefits included an employee discount on merchandise from day 1 of employment, can put that on lay-away, and if the item goes on sale before you pick it up, you get it at the sale price as well as with the discount. This is a Super K-Mart, and with kids this will really help with paying for their presents. It sure beats running out of work every day and wondering if I am going to have any money for gifts.
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.
TRUST me when I say...It is not worth your time, even part-time..

I hired on with them part-time on or about September 8, kept getting run around as to when I was to actually start transcribing. Team lead emailed to say she had a very very good account for me to start on.  I was trained 25 minutes. Then, there was an issue with my ID and password to get into the system.  After about 2 weeks, got ID and password, but it didn't work.  Then I get an email from another supervisor advising that I would be on another account and they seen the specs. So, I get an email some time around the first of October saying I can start typing.  In the meantime, Focus has a MT Forum, and I'm reading all these negative remarks from the MTs stating a lack of communication company wide, to the terrible QA department being not all on the same page, and being deducted points for blanks and such.  By this time, I was exhausted from waiting, and exhausted from hearing all the complaints from the MTs actually working there, that I sent an email to team lead saying, I had changed my mind about working there.  This is the most chaotic, disorganized, miscommunicated place I have ever seen in my entire 32 years of being an MT.   (If there are any errors in this forgive me.  Don't feel like proofing this)

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
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. 
Looking for part-time
I am looking for a part-time or IC (part-time hours) transcription position with flexible hours.   If anyone can direct me to specific companies who may consider this, I would really appreciate your help. 
looking for part time
Webmedx used to hire part time and they are looking for people. Also look up Amphion on the web. they are in Wisconsin.They have hired part time in the past, may still be looking - nice people, steady company.
Part time
Another point is when the hospitals outsource and MTs lose their jobs, this is another area where the MT loses! When we were outsourced a year ago, the hospital tried to really pat themselves on the back and, instead of just being honest and saying it was all about money, they tried to say they made their outsourcing choice based on how important it was that we get comparable benefits to what we had. Yeah right! In this area any part-time hospital employee gets PTO and even more importantly they are able to participate in insurance at a higher rate, but still a great deal compared to buying it privately. I always felt the benefits were the trade off for the so, so salary with the 3% cap on raises over the years.
