New lpn grad (91avge. On my transcript, not easy), first job hired as per diem 2 weeks in. (I know they do per diem to keep from giving benefits, I don't need them I'm ok with that rather more pay for now)
They don't pay overtime, no problem. FYI.. Live in NY
But my issue is my schedule. It is maybe two days here, no days here. I keep calling they throw me a day here. Then when I work they just switch my assignment no heads up, I find out by someone asking me why I'm on this floor. I do a good job and I'm competent. I just feel like I'm a nurse being treated like less than. I just feel I deserve more respect. The pay is great just don't get any hours to enjoy it.
I was sch. for Monday, Dec. 1st. to work 7-3. Then I get a call Sunday night saying it was a mistake. But can I work 3-11. I said I was busy (professional tone of course) because I felt like I was being jerked around and not respected. This is now December so I ask for my sch for the month figure they now have the chance to add me in(I came in the middle of Nov. so I waited for new month) they didn't call me back. It seems they want me more "on call" than anything.
I have an interview tomorrow I didn't plan to juggle but I have a mortgage to pay.
Anyone else have this issue. Or have incite?
