    Does anyone know if you are a part time employee for 1 company and part time IC for another can you
    still claim deductions for IC on your income tax even though you are one of each.
    Any suggestions for a GOOD company?

    I have 15 years experience.  Looking for a company that is very flexible on scheduling (full time student also) and treats employee like a human.

    I work part-time hours with full-time pay...
    I made over 26,000 this year...
    I work 1 full-time, 2 part-time....nm

    If you are only looking to work part-time (sm)

    why not put an ad in the yellow pages for a word processing or typing service?  Typing is becoming outdated and I wouldn't waste the time and money on school.  Besides it takes a long time to get up to speed.

    I'm the one who posted below about seeking medical care.  So now I have a nerve compression in the neck after years of being hooked up to a machine typing.  So the time deadlines add to the stress and do not help either.  I will try to enjoy my early retirement, I'm pretty young for a nerve compression.

    Part-Time Work?
    I am interested in training as an MT and would only want to work PT. Is it realistic to think this is possible?

    My husband already has great benifits so that is not an issue. And I do not need full-time income, just enough so he does not have to travel so much.

    Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
    Clinic MT looking for part-time work
    Clinic MT with 3+ years experience in family practice, internal medicine, ENT, and cardiology looking for part-time work.  Prefer to work in Word, 2000+ lines per week.
    part time work at home
    medquist will provide partc time work and equipment, call 1800dictate for more info or apply online
    I work part time for Spheris...(sm)
    They will hire you part time for the hours you're looking for; however, they don't hire IC status, which is what I wanted.

    Spheris is not working out for me at all, but maybe it'll be what you're looking for.

    Good luck!
    I work 2 part-time IC jobs..sm
    I feel like I have more stability that way just incase I want to leave one job or run out of work I always have a back-up.
    I only work part time statutory and
    full time with another company, I have a little bit extra withheld from my FT job each paycheck. I try to save 30% of my SE job pay to have on hand when tax time comes, even though I don't need that much, it covers me for everything plus after tax time I still have money in savings. It does depend a lot on your life though, what deductions you have, what tax bracket, etc. I am single with no kids, so I wind up in a higher tax bracket, therefore feel comfortable only when I save more.
    Yes, you can train as an MT and only work part time. sm
    But the training period on average is 2-4 years, depending on how you go about it and what you want to do. If you have excellent spelling, grammar and listening skills, you have a chance. In order to do acute-care work, you would probably be wisest to train through one of the on-line schools recommended by AAMT (whatever the initials), since they are recognized by the national companies and you can get a job, if your grades are good.

    If you just want to try for a clinic job and you have some background in medical terminology, you MIGHT find someone willing to work with you as a trainee, but that is difficult.

    Any way you look at it, it will be several years before you can expect much if any income. In my experience, most MTs make between $12-$20 an hour, depending on their speed and luck finding the right job, and years of training.
    I work two part-time jobs
    and that seems to keep it more interesting for me. I work on two different platforms. One is a small hospital where I am an IC, and the other is an MTSO where my account is a huge hospital. I think having to juggle the two jobs, supervisors, etc., keeps me more distracted. But, yeah, it can get really boring at times.

    I quit for 2 years a few years ago because I was seriously burned out and felt brain dead, but when I started looking for work again could not stand the thought of going to an office, so here I am again.
    Pitiful actually but I only work part-time..sm
    I work part time for the same place and same account I started as a newbie 1-1/2 years ago. I cannot find a job with more work because I either don't have 2 years exp or I don't have acute care exp. I have sent numerous resumes. So far now I am destined to make very little income while gaining the exp I need for a better job. Thank God my husband has a good job.

    1. Approximately $600.

    2. This is just one job only part time sometimes as little as 11 hours a week. On a good week 20 hours. Haven't seen 20 hours in a while.

    3. Rate is .075 cpl.

    4. About $2500 for food and bills and gas.

    5. I would be $1,900 short of enough to make it if it wasn't for husband. :( All I can do is keep trying and maybe in 6 more months when I have the 2 year exp. someone will actually hire me. Believe me I have applied at SO many places.
    I work part time at my daughter's college sm
    book store, looking for something else to do besides MT, I am bored.
    hospitals will allow you benefits if you work part time sm
    They will cost you a little but still a HUGE savings on paying all on your own.
    I would quit. I work part time and only make about
    $250 a week.  Just having become a grandma would influence my decision! I can't keep my hands off the little one!  1K a week would suite me just fine!  To bad I don't play the lottery. 
    Have Part Time Flexible Work in the evenings available, have emailed you. nm
    Part-time work using Extext/word client/dictaphone
    Anyone know any companies that are hiring that use this system?  I really want to start part-time and then probably commit to full time later.  I really want a company that supplies your equipment!  Thanks.
    Does anyone work a part time job that is NOT transcribing or related to the transcription field?
    If so, what?? 
    looking for part-time Emdat work, preferably with clients in the East Coast
    I have been making an average of 10,000 lines per pay period (bimonthly), on QA-optional status, but my accounts are based in the West Coast while I am in the East Coast. I usually work from afternoon to night to reach my daily goal of at least 1000 lines, which is not good for my family.

    I would like to find part-time work to keep me busy in the mornings instead of nights. I prefer clinic accounts, ESLs or American dictators. I am willing to take a test anytime especially in the mornings EST.

    For most companies how many hours may part time employees work. What is the minimum and maximum
    Good for you! So nice to see MTs rewarded for their hard very work dedication.

    I work a full time and a part time, but not sure about 2 full-time...
    My hubbie is disabled and I am the only one in my family working also, so I fully understand. You will not have a day off at all working 2 full-time as that is going to be the only way you will get in all your hours. I work one job in the mornings from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the other from 5 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. and do have off one day a week, but if I had to get in the extra 15 hours to make the other job full-time I am not sure how I would do that other than lose my only day off. Also, make sure you have your account specifics in front of you at all times because you will get yourself confused as to who is what and having notes will help in that area. Good luck to you, as it is possible, but forget about your house being clean, having any social life, etc. Feel free to email me personally if you just need someone to talk to, as I have been where you are and still am.
    Depends on how part time the part time jobs are.
    You can do it. You just have to work out a schedule you can live with.
    Suggestions would be nice.
    This is happening to me too and some of the things that are in there are contradictory to the way my boss wants them.
    Yes - reputable company. Easy to work for. Pay on time always. nm
    Good Company to Work For
    I really need to make a change.  Can those of you out there that REALLY LIKE the company you work for send me a line?  I have already applied to quite a few, and now it's decision time.  I appreciate any input you can give me.    Thanks in advance!    PJ
    SS is a good company. I work as QA though so I don't know from
    an MT perspective on the work load. Been with them almost a year.
    So, who's a good company to work for?
    I have 8 years of experience in many MT specialties. What are the best companies that are HIRING? TIA.
    I am fairly new with my company and I tried the control Y one time, and it didn't work, so I thou
    into the "global" normals, I will play with it again and give it a try. How long have you been doing transcription? Have you stayed with the same company for a long time? I worked at a clinic for 6 years, hospital for 8, and now this new national for 3 months.....I hate feeling new!
    I currently work for Transhealth. I tihnk it is a good company.
    I need help finding a good company with steady work..sm
    that pays a minimum of 10 cents a line.  I have been an MT for 27 years and I take pride in my work.  Things have changed at my current company and cherry pickers have taken over so I end up doing all the reports no one else wants to do.  This takes me longer and my line count is suffering.  I know there have to be good companies out there that pay well and need good employees.  I have left my email address if anyone would like to offer me some hope and share names of companies.  Please no flames, I am just an honest MT wanting an honest job with decent compensation. Thanks for any help.
    Is Keystrokes a good company for any work type other than radiology? sm

    I have seen really good reports on this board (and others) about Keystrokes being the place to be for radiology but have really not seen much discussion regarding other work types.  I am primarily interested in op notes as I understand they will only hire if you have spent the last several years in a particular work type and ops are it for me.  I wonder about their platform, pay scale, flexibility, whether or not weekend work is required, etc.  I have left my email address in case anyone would like to privately email me.  I would really appreciate some input.  Thank you.

    I work for a national. Most of the time the voices are pretty good, but

    I have been getting some of late that have background noices, door slamming, people talking,  Sometimes the doc will stop talking but the noices sound so close to him that it is annoying.  Do you think the sound card would interfere with my company's computer?  It sounds nice to have even though it does not help the background stuff.   I guess that is a good question for tech.  Thanks again! 

    Working full time at home with small children is hard but part time works great
    is almost impossible. You will either have to work when your spouse is home or for only a few hours during the day and then more when they are asleep. I work part time at home and my kids (2&5 now) have done very, very well. They are great kids, very well behaved, don't get into much. I stop working to check on them/give them some attention every hour or so while I work (5 hours each afternoon or so) and they get all my attention in the morning and at night. It has worked out beautifully for us.
    full-time in office/ part-time at home
    I currently work full-time in a physician's office and have started part-time online. My hope is to eventually go full-time online; however that will be done the road for a single mom with a son in college. My suggestion would be try to type part-time for a MTSO and see how that goes i.e work and money with a decision down the road for ultimately being home all the time. A guaranteed paycheck is always a necessity for me. Hope this helps.
    full time, part time, statutory
    newly defined full time...

    newly defined part time....(which is an added classification)

    I believe statutory just was not mentioned because there is nothing new about the definition of statutory.
    full time/part time/statutory
    The definition of full time is new.

    There is a new classification called part time.

    I believe statutory was not mentioned merely because that has not changed and they do not receive PTO/benefits.
    Company suggestions for 1 year experience
    Does anyone have any suggestions for companies (nice companies) that will except 1 year exp., just got burnt real bad by SS
    Good for you! You sound like a very nice and generous person and you deserve all your good luck! nm
    Many thanks for all the suggestions! Sure appreciate you taking time to answer. nm
    part-time or full-time
    I'm curious. Are you FT or PT? Thanks.
    1 full time and 1 part time for now
    I am still pretty new, so that is all I am taking on. I may take on more after I get more experience, if possible.
    Been there. A few good suggestions. It works.

    My poor daughter has been blessed with very curly, unruly, bushy hair.  She is a target for head lice and used to get them at least 2 or three times every year. We tried cutting her hair off, but it made it worse, because it grows outwards like a big bush. 

    I have read up on this subject in detail and have found many things that work, or at least help, as the new generation of head lice seem to be impervious to most treatments.


    No matter which treatment you do use, wash your child's hair and wrap it in a towel and LEAVE IT WET FOR A FULL 15 MINUTES.  The lice can shut of their breathing for only 15 minutes and then they have to breath again.  After the 15 minutes (set the timer), do the treatment. That way they can no longer breathe without sucking in the treatment.

    For younger children either soak the hair in mayonnaise or vegetable oil and put  a rubber bathing cap or plastic grocery bag, tied snugly, on their head and have them leave it on overnight. This suffocates the nasty little bugs.  Wrap the cap or bag with a towel and clip it to avoid leakage of the oil and slippage of the cap or bag..  It's gross, but it works.  My daughter still won't eat mayo. :)

    For older children, NIX and ONLY NIX.  No substitutes.  They do not work.  Believe me, I've tried to get out of it cheaper. It's expensive, but it works.  Buy the box with 2 bottles, because you MUST do it again a week later. Nix treatment must be repeated in 7 days after the first treatment.  I always do it in another 7 days afterwards, just to be safe.

    Lice comb must be METAL.  Plastic does not do the job. 

    MOST IMPORTANT:  Remove all nits from the hair.  The stinky buggers have been reported to live even after 2 treatments. Recheck for nits every single day.  With my daughter's hair, at shoulder length and bushy, it was at least six hours the first time and I picked the nits off daily for weeks. You can also cut off the hair strands to make it quicker. Sunlight works best to see them in, but a good mag lite that you can wear on your head to keep your hands free works just as well after dark. Buy a pair of strong reading glasses at the dollar store for a buck.  That will given you magnification enough to see the nits, as they are hard to see.

    HOUSE CLEANING:   Don't just spray, bag everything they have in their room that is cloth. PUT ALL stuffed animals, bedding, pillows, etc. in a trash bag.  Tie it up tight and don't open it for 2 weeks. A favorite blanket or stuffed animal can spend a full hour in the dryer on high if need be.  Vaccum, but if you use vacuum bags, remove the bag EVERY time you vacuum (include the cloth furniture) and tie the vacuum bag up tightly in a trash bag or plastic grocery bag and throw it out of your house. 

    PREVENTION:  Buy shampoo that smells like coconuts.  Apparently the buggers don't like the smell. Suave sells one called "Tropical Coconut" for under $2.00.  Hair gel, hair spray and anything else with a strong smell will deter them as well. They don't like sweet smelling sticky hair AND they don't like dirty, greasy hair either.  They like the really clean fluffy stuff.

    CHECK, CHECK, CHECK every week through the school year, and don't wait until your child is scratching their head.  If your child's hair is long enough, insist on a tight ponytail during school, preferably sprayed with a good amount of hair spray.

    Most important, if your child comes home with lice, REPORT it to the school, daycare, church, camp or wherever.  It isn't your child that is giving other kids lice, it's the other kids that are giving lice to your child and either their parents are too ignorant or embarrassed to report it.

    I reported my daughter's first incident, which was very mild, when she was in kindergarten the minute I noticed it. The school did a head check and hundreds of kids were just infested, but nobody had reported it.

    Good luck.



    What you pay a good tax guy to give you suggestions and help with taxes is
    Need good reference/webiste suggestions

    I am brand new to this speciality and I am actually really liking it... but I am having trouble finding certain equipment... I was wondering if any of you have any favorite books or websites that have hard to find surgical tools/equipment?

    I saw that Stedman's has one out--is that any good?


    Thanks for any info!!

    It's nice to have company...lol
    Thank you all for your suggestions and also for making me not feel like I am the only one. I could make really good money if I would just apply myself. The hospital I transcribe for pays me 11 cpl on 60-character line besides benefits and the clinic that I transcribe for as an IC pays me 14 cpl. I'm going to have to check out that White Chestnut though. Well, I'm wasting time here, gotta get back to work. Thanks again everyone!
    Company states cannot use Vonage. Any suggestions for land line unlimited long distance? nm

    Looking for a good word expander to go along with MSWord. Does anyone have any suggestions??

    Hi all!!!  I am currently using MSWord and would like to purchase a word expander.  I have done some research, but am still not certain which one to buy.  I wish not purchase one that will drain my bank account, but do want one with the capability to have the ability to add an indefinite amount of shortcuts, etc.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!!!!
