on call work?
Anyone had a job where your on a spareboard / on call ? Was hired a place in the summer and said it would be full time work, ended up working for a full month. They then decided to lay a few of us off and put us on a spareboard. Expecting us to be on call for a day shift or afternoon shift. Day shift starting at 5am and afternoon shift starting at 5pm.. Just wondering how people have delt with these situations cause it feels like your life is always waiting on work to call you? The thing is its decent pay, so it sucks if you have to miss a shift, but on the flip side you could be called 5-10 minutes before a shift start. Basically feels like my life is waiting for a call 7 days a week, which can be frustrating at times.
