Advice on my first RPN casual Position

  1. 0
    Hi,

    I llive in Vaughan area and I been lookin for a job since Jan 2011 and no good luck. But now I got gave interview last weel at a long term care in Barrie which is like 65 km away from my house and it is a casual/on call position. Next week is my orientation.Now I am very confused if I accept this job or not. I know this job can get me some RPN experience and than I can apply close to my house but I am anware of somethings such as

    1.) If casual/On call positions are on contract?
    2.) If casual RPN's gets benefits.

    also Should I accept this offer its like 1 hour of drive away also I have to think in the winter its going to be hard to drive there because heavy snow in north area.
    I just want to know if casual/on call positions are under what kind of aggrement. I am thinking to accept the job offer untill I find somewhere in my area. But I am then scared what if they did contract with me? It is my first job

    Plz post your suggetions.

    Hi DSaini,

    Just stumbled upon your post searching in Google. Congrats for clearing the RPN exam as well as getting the job.

    My name is Meenakshi, I've just reached Brampton from India 2 months back. I am gonna prepare for RPN exam. I think I need to know quite a good amount of guidance from your experience. I don't have anybody here to take guidance. Hence it would be great if you could please send me your contact no. at msaini@live.ca. I'll be really greatful to you. Please also let me know what time would be suitable for me to contact you.

    Thanks,

    meena
