Do any pharmacist have to be on-call? And if so, how are you compensated for that? My job requires me to be on call 1-2 weekends a month, but they only pay me if I go in since I’m hourly. However this has made it difficult to make plans, since I keep having to cancel or alter my plans…

I'm on call about one night a week and every fifth or so weekend and am only paid if I have to spend time calling someone back/resolving an issue/going in. Normal hourly rate in those situations

When I first started my LTC job, I was on call at least 1 night a week. Back then we got paid $2/hour to be on call, and if we had to go back in to fill an order we were paid for the time away from home, minimum 1 hour. When we got overnight pharmacists and only had to be on call for 2 hours in the morning when we worked the weekend, they stopped paying us the hourly rate.

Continuing status quo is the path of least resistance for them…. If you are no longer on call then someone else (the manager?) will be.

I'm not but when I've interviewed at Nuclear Pharmacies and Long Term Pharmacies they always mentioned an on-call aspect to the job that would rotate. They wouldn't pay you because it was always an exempt salary position instead of hourly....

that’s the other nonsense!! exempted salary is just a way to pimp you and not pay you!! wake up pharmacists !! unionize and get some much earned respect

I’m an hourly pharmacist in nyc and our contract is 50% when on call. So we almost never get put on call. A friend of mine was a pharmacist in Baltimore at a hospital where she got paid 10% for on call shifts and full pay if she got called

My husband was an angiography rad tech for HCA in Austin within the past 5 years and the on call rate was $2/hr and call was required rotating weekends and nights. At the time, an X-ray tech at a smaller Austin HCA hospital said he was always on call. It’s terrible - but it seems to be a standard in hospitals.
