Hi all!

I would just like some insight.  I recently applied for an OB Case Mgr postition and had a telephone screening yesterday.  It went well.  I now have a panel interview this week.  The recruiter was very impressed with my skills and background.  This would be a great opportunity to gain experience in the CM field because I currently have none and most places want you to already have experience coming in the door.  The recruiter mentioned this is a salaried position.... I have never held a salaried position before.  The pay is comparable to what I am currently earning, but slightly less. What is different about being a salaried employee vs. hourly besides just receiving a flat pay every two weeks? Are there any additional details I should inquire about? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

You don't get paid any overtime,  but are expected to work over when warranted. Some companies allow for comp time. Some companies will dock you if you don't put in for 40 hours, which is legal, I found out the hard way. I would want more clarification before I signed on about expectations

Also, be aware of "any other duties as assigned".

You could be responsible for 'wearing many hats' in that job.
