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.
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.
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
Yeah, but full-time lines does not necessarily mean full-time hours, so I would do it if your produc
Has anyone breast fed while trying to work at home, can you do this and still work full time?
It seems like the more literature I read on the subject, the longer it seems to take, especially in the beginning when you are breast feeding every two hours, or does it really just depend on the baby?
I work 2 full time IC jobs. nm
I work 2 full time jobs..
I work from 8:00 - 4:30 then get home and start working about 6 pm. until 12-1 a.m. It's tough to do, but can be done if you are determined enough. I've been doing for almost one year now. The bad thing is I work salary during day hours, and paid cpl at night, so nothing is overtime pay for me. Would be easier to have one job with overtime allowed. We girls just do what we gotta do, don't we?
Those people obviously do not work full time or want to
make a good living. I would work at McDonald's before I would let someone take my house. If someone is not making enough money in this field, it is them, not the industry. Tired of everyone tip-toeing around this issue. The money is there but you need to buckle down and do the work. Stop whining and start working.
I work as an IC, get .105 with full -time schedule. NM
great opportunity ?

Not to the people who are laid off because of it. Sending work to India is a "great opportunity" also - eh?



How does it work full-time to have rotating weekends
My brain is fried with all this job hunting and I can't think.  All MTSOs want weekend commitments now.  If I offer to do rotate every other weekend for Saturday and Sunday, what does my schedule look like so that I still have two days together off, and without working 7 straight days (hope this makes sense...I'm so tired :(. 
You can't take care of an infant all day and work full time.
I work 2 full time IC jobs and made just under 50K. nm


Do you work full time and home school? (nm)
can you not work 6 hours a day and still qualify for full time? sm
i know most places it is usually 30 or 32 hours constitute full time. if it is 30 hours, then you could do 6 hour days 5 days a week and get in 30. is there a possibility you could do a split shift and that would allow your feet and you rest time between shifts? guess no possibility of working from home, LOL. i definitely understand your frustrations. sometimes the good employees get the short end of the stick cuz they need you the most.
Can a national require full time MTs to work overtime?


You work full time, manage a house and cut 11 acres? No way man! Not me :)
With the time & opportunity to do so, I'd get
I fell into MT as well, and it was a good fit for many years. But things changed in the 1990's, and even at a good-paying in-hospital job, they started treating the MTs like crap. Pay didn't go down, but morale was abysmal. Working at home freed me from management abuse, but now I'm pretty much chained to my PC, as the only way to eke out a living at this profession is to type ALL THE TIME, every day. Even a quick jaunt to the supermarket feels like a 'vacation', these days. And a real vacation? Forgot it. I've been kicking around the idea of learning something else, but I'm now almost 58, and time and money are 2 things in short supply around here.

Doing straight typing, you'll be hard-pressed to find a job that pays more than 8 cpl, 9 if you're lucky. And it's really not enough to live on. (Yes, you currently have a dual income, but you should always factor in that that could possibly change someday. By then it might be too late to get out of MT and start over again.) And American MT jobs seem to be headed in the direction of being solely ESL-and-VR-editing, at a microscopic 3 cpl, which will probably just go lower in the future.

Given a do-over, I'd go to school and learn something that isn't done on a PC, and which is less likely to be sent offshore.
I *only* make $40K a year for full time work. Now I find that isn't decent is or fair?
What would you do? I have been given the opportunity to work from home sm

for a start-up company in mass media (please don't ask name of publication since I can't release that yet).  I know the owners, husband quit job to pursue this full-time along with a few other people to start this media company.  We've been meeting once a week for about 6 weeks.  Right now I am part-time.  I am doing the editing for this company, a lot of reading and research and today was told, if I decide to work for them frome home, that I could also be the corresponding editor, meaning once their first publication comes out in April, whenever someone has a "letter to the editor," that email would come straight to me, I would either route the mail by importance to the appropriate staff member or answer them myself - it will all be up to me.  Basically, I would be an administrator for the company as well as edit articles, speeches, ads, etc. that come in.  This job would be multifunctional. 

About the pay: We haven't really discussed this yet.  The owner gave me a list of salary ranges and I would fall into the editor/administrative salary range which is a little more than what I make right now.  Would you make the jump??

I am married and my husband's salary pays most of our bills, but I definitely need to work. I've taken a few days off to meet with this new company and to decide if I should quit MTing/QAing to dedicate my time between work and family with this company.  I can't do both. No way! They want to start sending me stuff right now and then I have my company counting on me to QA. 

Today was my first day back QAing and I am dreading every single minute of it. I want to edit and email and meet with these people, but I'm hesistant to do so.  Not sure how much security is in it.  I would hate to quit and then this media company can't get off their feet.


What would you do? Editing/administration is my gift. And I can still work from home.  Would you do it?

Saw him on CMT show with John Fogarty. Great, great singer with a neat personality and drop dead
gorgeous without seeming to know it. 
Finding a legitimate work-at-home opportunity
Finding a legitimate work-at-home opportunity can be very confusing task, but once you get in to the field you feel great by working at the comfort of your home. You may come across many opportunities but you have to very ideal in choosing the best which suits you. In case, if you have always worked for someone else and are depressed with this situation, or if you want to spend more time at home, you may want to consider finding a work at home opportunity that will allow you to earn money but give you the free time you are looking for.
If you can show proof you did this work for them, they then have to show they paid it in order
GREAT GREAT SHOW! I still think Ellen Pompeo
should have gotten the Emmy/Golden Globe whatever it was for the show. I like Sandra Ho, her character just needs more depth... Next week looks AWESOME!! Maybe there is still a chance for McDreamy!! First season DVD coming out with deleted scenes! Can't wait to get it & watch it!!
Not anymore. For some time now, I've been working 32 hours and am considered full time to receive
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.
Great show!

Jerry Rice is good but cannot match Drew.  What's up with the gangsta rapper?  He should have gone first. He doesn't really care.  I think he should have gone first.

Rock on Drew.

Oh yes. This show is great.
I love Cesar.  He trips me out w/ all that dog stuff.  I even attempted some w/ our dog, though it didn't turn out to well, but then again Cesar was not here to show me correctly.  It is a good show.
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.
It's a great show.. to the posters below who don't like it...
I always have trouble going into a show if I haven't seen it from the beginning. I  sometimes wonder what all the hoopla is about on a show when I try to watch mid-season.This really is a great show, but the drama is overwhelming at times.
That was a great show! Thanks for the post!
I missed about 20 minutes of it, but recorded the rest. Fascinating look at the other side of things. I have always known that the Indian (whatever 3rd world country) workers themselves were not our enemies - its the govts as usual creating all this situation. And now their culture is crumbling and turning into our culture. Poor things! And, while I certainly don't want to lose my job to offshoring, they are right that we as Americans can rebuild our lives and reinvent ourselves. Those people die. They are desperate and that's why I give them 100% respect and anticipate them making leaps and bounds in the industry. They have a great incentive - pure survival. I have also QA'd lots of foreign work. There are occasional bad MTs, but there are some fantastic MTs as well. Sometimes far superior to the quality of USA MTs. So, I'll be looking over my shoulder for sure and keeping my skills current!
I saw a great show on public TV the other day with (sm)
Suze Orman about women & their money. One thing she couldn't emphasize enough (and which I totally agree, even if I don't always agree with her), is, "Ladies, you are NOT ON SALE." Selling ourselves short is the biggest mistake most of us (women) make in our lives. Anyone who accepts less pay tomorrow for work done just as competently as yesterday is putting themselves and their services ON SALE. Don't accept this back-stabbing offer. Find something else - this company obviously has only its own profits at heart, and could care less about its workers, the quality of its product, or the future of MT in general.
You all are such great support and full of useful information. nm
Rosie's old daytime show was great.
Are you full-time?
I was just wondering how they expect people to get a quota with no work.

$1,100.00 full time
Are you full-time?
How  many lines do you do a day?  I personally think this is very low even for a newbie, but I'm wondering if your accounts are REALLY easy and you have a lot of "normals" (macros) where you can get great line counts in a short period of time.  Just my opinion and I'm no expert but I'd say they ARE taking advantage . . . . 
I would say full time 1,000 to 1,200 per day. nm


Its not me, its my full time job
Its not me being superwoman, I can assure you. My full time job is awesome and the company I work for is everyone's dream come true. My little one takes up a lot of me, don't get me wrong, but I guess I spent a lot of time out doing things where as now I have to be at home with her. My husband and I have opposite work schedules so he's on his own pretty much and I only have to take care of myself and our daughter usually. I just thought someone there is this get rich in your free time job out there in the MT field that I should look into (JOKING!! please don't bash me again!).

Seriously - I am just looking into ways to make money from home while filling up my free time. Computers is what I do so I figured it would be interesting to look into MT. My mistake I think. Sounds like way more work than I wanted to do.
Yes, Full-time.
I work 40 hours a week for 1 company. I also have an IC job on the side to help with some money, but everytime I have logged on in the last month, there has been no work.

I do see my lines starting to come up, but am still only hitting 100 lines on average which is only $6.50 an hour. Not a livable wage by any means. That barely covers my rent each month.
I also have gotten out of MT full time
So I only work doing transcription part time.
Full-time IC?

Full-time IC is a term that seems contradictory to me.  I thought an IC was expected to have more than one "client", at least per IRS expectations, so how does an MTSO get away with requiring an MT's undivided attention as an IC?  It seems that MTSOs have a different set of rules....and we are the ones who allow it.

Has anyone out there addressed this issue with either a potential client and/or the IRS?  If so, what was the outcome?  I'm thinking of filing a complaint and just need some feedback to determine if it is worth my time and energy.



Have seen them twice (Las Vegas and L.A.). They put on great stage show. Tickets were under $100.
before you take the time to show her how everything...
works/goes on/is handled in the office, have her type a few of the harder reports. She will realize she is unable to do the work. If she doesn't realize it, you will have more ammunition as to why she should not have been hired. Good luck.
has anyone transitioned from IC or SE to full time
How did the transition go?  What are the differences?  What do they take out of you for single in regards to health insurance.  Did your pay rate stay the same?  My premiium went up AGAIN as it does every year, 20 bucks, and i'm thinking about becoming full time, but only if it is a smooth transition.  Thanks guys
Two full-time jobs here
It bites!!! I'm exhausted.
Well I'm doing this full time and ouch !!!

How do you make any money???? Typing and shortcuts is not the problem but trying to figure out some of what the dictators are saying is time consuming... How do you make money????????????

Though I love the research and find this interesting 40.00 a day is not going to cut it... Does it get better?????  I feel stupid !!!!!!!!!!!!!
