New Job Offer is offering a hourly wage that sounds too good to be true..

  1. 0
    I really need help figuring this out.
    I recently accepted a job offer at a local hospital. I currently work at a LTC facility making $11.20 an hour, with a .40 cent shift differential for PMs and NOCs. The new position sent me an email with more information regarding the position, and forms to fill out. In the information they sent me, it says that my pay will be $16.02 an hour. To me, it sounds like it could be a typo? I have less than one year of CNA experience. This hospital also offers shift differentials of $1.25 for PMs and $2.50 for NOCs. I am hired to work mostly NOCs and some PMs. So if I am correct, I would be making $18.52 an hour when I work NOCs?! It is possible that she added the $2.50 shift differential into my hourly age i suppose, but normally places dont do that?

    Could be correct. Although I don't know what area you live in.

    In my town, the LTC's pay CNA's better than the hospitals do. $16.02 sounds like an LPN wage to me!! But I live in the midwest and salaries are lower here.

    Do they think you are an LPN?

    Sounds like a VA hospital. If so, then the information is accurate. Plus the benefits are a plus. I hope that you get the job! Good luck!!

    Take the money and run with it! Just kidding, but that sounds awesome. If their numbers are correct GO for it. Is this a FT, PT or per diem? A lot of places pay per diem employees much more because they don't receive any benefits.

    They know I am a CNA. I had 2 interviews and the paperwork all says CNA.

    Got a response from the email I sent back, that was not my correct pay! I start at $12 an hour, plus my shift diffentials. Still very happy with that pay
