I just finished up a week of oncall for work. Very glad that’s over. It’s not that I have “that” bad of on-call, but I’ve been doing it for nearly 20 years now.
It’s one of those things I’m really looking forward to being a full-time writer. No more on-call.
That being said, I will miss the steady paycheck, or the standard pay even if you’re not feeling 100% that day.
I’ll miss the insurance, and the fact that I don’t have to pay 100% of my Social Security each month.
But I won’t miss on-call.
