I don't know how relevant this will be because I'm from Canada. Through training, I got a practicum with MModal and they hired me a few days after it finished. I work from home and am considered part time. As a part-timer, I am expected to complete 250 recorded minutes worth of dictation per week and I can do it just about any time I want, but they expect us to put in 4 hours of work time (not recorded minutes) between 6 pm Friday and end of day Sunday. But that's a wide berth, so if you do it all Friday night, for example, you don't have to work Saturday or Sunday.
