I've had two of these which consisted of the manager walking through the ED trying to grab whoever wasn't busy. I was in the interview for 2 minutes before they called a trauma overhead and everyone left.
I love per diem! I have per diem jobs at two different hospitals. One guarantees me 24 hours a month with the flexibility to bid on extra shifts within my unit. The other guarantees me 16 hours a month with the ability to bid on extra shifts within my unit, as well as identical units in all of its sister hospitals. So far I've worked as little as 40 hours a month, and as much 160 hours a month.
