    A whopping $2 to carry the pager. Time and a half if called in, minimum of 2 hours. So if I were to be called in for an appy and was only there for 90 minutes, I'd still get paid for 2 hours at time and a half.

    $5/hr currently just to be on call. Time-and-a-half when actually called in and 2 hr minimum pay like Sweet_Wild. I have gotten as low as $1.50/hr to carry my pager :/

    On call is 1/2 of your hourly rate....in my area you're looking at $25+/hr for on call.

    I get $10/hr to be on call. I make $55/hr for PRN rate and I get time and half if I get called in. If the case is less than 2 hrs, I still get paid 2 hrs. I'm the in the DC/MD/VA where the rates are veryy good.

    I get $5 hour to be on call. We get time & a half, 2 hour minimum if called in. If we continue our shift, at 14 hours we go on to double time. Holidays are double time. Plus more perks! I think we have a good thing here.
