Yeah, but full-time lines does not necessarily mean full-time hours, so I would do it if your produc
That's very interesting! I don't remember what time I was born
I am very much a night person & like you, my brain does not seem to fully function until noon-time! If my memory serves me correctly, I believe I was born in the wee hours of the morning (basically the middle of the night) I'm curious to read what the other posters have to say! Great thread!
That is an interesting site. Thanks for taking time to post it--nm
Just e'd you at 5:28 NY time. Hope it makes

part time now makes 50K + bennies...sm
My friend just graduated 2 years ago with a BSN, is working 3-11 shift 32 hours per week, Med-Surg oncology has incredible benefits (any benefits are appealing to those of us who are self-employed) and is pulling in over $50K a year. She makes close to $35 an hour and this is at a small community hospital, not in Chicago.
Yeah, she does it all the time
I feel sorry for her.   I guess she doesn't get any attention in real life.  They say negative attention is still attention....
Yeah, I know it happens all the time,
I had just never actually experienced it before. Oh well, like you said, one more line to get paid for! It just seems wrong to me, but I will do what he asks as that's my job. :-)
Not upset - everyone makes bad choices in their life at some time or another. sm
No one is perfect. Hopefully, someone will give you a chance and your money and time won't be wasted.

Good luck to you!
Don't have to be at Mom's until noon and THOUGHT about typing an hour or 2 in the morning. But not going to unless a good incentive/bonus is offered.

Going to eat and de-stress.

I'm happy for you RadGuy! You surely deserve the holiday off!!!
Yeah for Time Warner
I actually just saw a commercial on television about customer service from TW, the end being they were making a point about a company with customer service in the United States.  It had a guy calling for service, showed an overturned vehicle in a foreign country with the guy walking  and the voice says something like stick with Time Warner, where when you call customer service, you get someone in the United States.
Yeah, comp time!
I used to deliberately work in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep because it was an extra $2 per hour plus production incentive. Those were the days. We also got quarterly bonuses if the hospital transcription stayed within TAT and accuracy was 98% or better.
Peewee Herman. That man makes my heart go aflutter ever time!

Yeah, donate your vacation time
A neighbor of a relative of mine, being the nice person that he is, set up a booth at the Astrodome for temporary work as a plumber for $15 an hour.  No one came.    Go ahead, give up your vacation.  Not me.
Yeah I used to spend time carefully (sm)
crafting tactful feedback only to realize later that the MT had apparently not read it, deleted it, tossed it, whatever. You get to where you hear the same old excuses time and again and you realize that some people just don't care.

Another poster made the comment on how she didn't want someone to mother her; well, a lot of the MTs I worked with apparently did. They wanted me to be like a longsuffering mother and overlook their mistakes, take their excuses over and over and over again and offer tea and sympathy. They would repeatedly not write down what I told them, not look in reference books ("oh, I forgot you said to look there") ad nauseam.

So you get to the point where you're just sending to-the-point messages and you quit handholding. And then some people get angry because you're not "nice." Can't win for losing.
Yeah, take the time to do it, and once you do you'll never forget the name of that catheter!!

Don't always look for the EZ way out.......

Not anymore. For some time now, I've been working 32 hours and am considered full time to receive
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.
Cannot legally require you to commit time to them as an employee and then not pay you for that time.
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.
I work part-time hours with full-time pay...
I made over 26,000 this year...
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.
Maybe they will. Give it time. It takes time to set up links.
OSI, Precyse, etc tell us more.
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.
I work 1 full-time, 2 part-time....nm
its a waste of time yet you take the time to respond?

**yawn time for your bed time old thinker*
Hippie??  What pray tell is a hippie?  Im not judgmental..I dont care what another is partying about or with or whom they are with..Im not a cop or the warmonger in the White House..far be it from me to judge another..You, however, by your post seem to have grown old before your time..I recommend you just graze on your back yard grass and leave us **alive ones** alone..**yawn**, time for you to go to bed now, hun?  Bye..bye..old person..
I do believe she is good enough, and has more than proved that time and time again. NM
part-time or full-time
I'm curious. Are you FT or PT? Thanks.
4 week's time or 4 weeks' time
Does anyone know this one. I will see the patient back in 4 week's time, 4 weeks' time or 4 weeks time. Can't seem to find this in any of my reference books. Thanks in advance.
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.
I never denied that I need a break from time to time, but
I was just stating how I took her post and the fact that I am worried about how my son will react since he is already getting quite upset. But, yes, any parent SHOULD be able to admit that they need a break from time to time...we're only human too! :)
even ISPs have to do maintenance from time to time--sm
and most do this during the wee hours of the morning when MOST people are sleeping and not using the internet. They need to upgrade their services and virus protection just like the home users. This is probably what occurred.
I recently requested time off for the first time...
(3 days off) and gave 2 weeks notice but was asked by my boss to give more notice next time.  I thought 2 weeks was decent, but next time I will give at least 30 days.
Do we enter each time there is a new prize, or just the one time?



Not 1st time, wont be happy the 2nd time and
Utter waste of time, unless you have a lot of time--then have at it! nm
I've had 3 at one time, but only one open at a time. nm
Virtually never. Time spent doing that is time SM
that could be spent typing. Instead of stopping to listen, then typing to catch up, I scan AHEAD of the dictation as I type, looking for upcoming questionable areas.
John Stossel's new book makes this same claim. Interesting. nm
1st time 22 (6 yrs). 2nd time 33 and 13 years.
Still going strong! 
SO the little one takes up your time yet you have time?
I have side this time and time again
It's crazy how these nationals or even smaller MTSOs think that we should be working set hours as an IC or even set lines as an IC.  I totally stay away from those companies.  Also, stay away from the ones that keep you on messenger (like Advanced in Oregon) or require you be logged in their platform, etc. or require a time clock as an IC.  This is against the law.  They cannot clock you and expect you to work certain hours under an IC status.  They are getting away with it though, time and time again.  It's a shame what we MTs put up with in this profession for pennies!!!

yeah tough crowd. makes or breaks a comedian. don't quit your day job andromeda
no one is bent out of shape. it is what it is and the people bent out of shape are those who want everyone to laugh generically without any thought to the content.
you have no time to switch from board to board? how can you have time to look for the drug?
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.
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.
$32K/part time 6 months/full time 6 months
I have kept my child home with me half the year, but when pre-K started I began working full time. Helps to only have a main account and one backup account for the 2nd year now, so my abbreviation program rocks and rolls when I focus.
Maybe it's time to ask yourself
whether your better off with him or without him. It must be soul-destroying to live with someone who has no consideration or respect for you. There are men (strong, decent men) who respect their wives as partners and show them consideration. You don't have to live like that. You deserve better.
