    shadowness,The day I went there I saw a few guys. I also interviewed for that unit. I can't wait to start. I have been looking for a job for six months. My friend didn't get a call back. I'm wondering if they are still making offers.

    Not sure if they are still making offers as far as med surg the manager there is awesome. I am ecstatic about the ICU and am just praying I will be offered full time down the road.

    The same here i'm hoping for a fulltime spot. From what I remember there were a lot of med Surg managers. The staff was very nice.

    Im curious to know where everyone else will be starting? We will probably be in the same orientation I believe.

    I will be starting my orientation also on the 14th. I got offered a part time med-surg position. The hourly rate is 33.14 an hour, and yes like was said before, all training is full time the first months which is awesome. When I interviewed the med-surg manager told me if they offer me a part time position to take it because there is plenty of overtime to get me a full time salary if I need the extra hours. I am SOO excited to start!

    I was wondering that myself 987! What I don't get is if <32 hours is considered part time how can i possibly get more than that? Am i missing something? how can I get OT or hours over 32 without being considered full time. I thought it was illegal in our state at least.

    Well probably cause you are hired to work for less than 32 hours. If you work overtime or whatever that's your choice, we don't really have a mandatory overtime law. So even if you work 40 hours you were only hired for less than full time. I think that's the difference.

    Sorry double post

    really? i was under the impression you could only work OT if you were a full time employee. I want to hear what 987! thinks about this also. If so, that is great. We may work anywhere from 3-8 shifts per 2 weeks so its a huge difference in salary... The more work I get the better so I'm not planning on shying away from extra hours lol
