    Sounds messed up. I'm on call 24/7 365 so I guess your situation could be worse.

    where I work we do 1 week on and 1 week off. since the "on-call" guy gets a $75.00 spiff for each week of on call duty I usually do 4 weeks on and 1 week off.
    I don’t always drink beer, but when I do I prefer Dos-Equis. I am the most interesting man in the world. Stay thirsty my friends.

    Sounds like me. Officially, I'm on call 1 week and off 2. Sometimes, they call me to find out who is supposed to be on call.

    Never got a bonus just for being on call, just OT.

    Still rake the cash in the summer.

    I'm with you there, 24/7. I do get xtra cash for all the on call though.
    Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things, I am tempted to think there are no little things!
