Where I work, we have 7 days of being the after-hours on-call staff. we are on-call every 7th week. I LOATHE my turn on the rotation. It stresses me out, we have to put our lives on hold for 7 days so we can be near a computer at all times in the event a call comes in.

Additionally, if we have to pull in an additional resource, like a developer for example, it takes a herculean effort to get ahold of someone.

Calls come in all hours of the night/early morning. Then you have to be up and ready for your regular shift the next day.

There is no differential pay for this either as we are salaried.

If ever I decide to look for a new job, I am going to ensure it does not have on-call hours as a requirement.
