    I work per-diem and I only work on the days that I want to. Sometimes I work 2 days a month sometimes non at all. Or they will call me and see if I can cover a shift b/c someone has called off.

    Literally translated: per day

    In business, my "per diem" was the money given "per day" to cover meals and misc. items.
    Ck w/ HR to see what they mean specifically...

    Its also means that you're not staff so you won't receive any benefits (insurance, accrued vacation, etc) so the rate per hour is higher than you would get if you were on staff.
