  1. I'm in the midwest. I will get clarification on the nights, because I didn't ask specifically how many nights there are in a row. I was told you get assigned a month-long block of nights but work the same number you usually would work days. So that would be 12-13 shifts per month. Health insurance premiums are paid partially by me, and partially by the hospital. 80/20 is the coinsurance numbers. They pay 80% til I reach the out of pocket max and then pay everything. Because it's a big hospital I know I have absolutely no negotiating room on bennies. The salary without benefits is coming out at $60/hour.
  2. Good point. I was quoted 40 shifts per quarter, average of 6-7 shifts per two week pay period. This is not a 7/7 position, although some of the PAs in the group choose to work that way or close to it.
  3. I have ~5 years of experience. This offer is from a big hospital with a well integrated PA practice, in a moderate cost-of-living area. - Salary 125K. - 12 hour shifts with 1:3 weekends and 1:4 nights. Required to work 2 federal holidays per year. Shift differential amounts to ~5K per year by my calculation. - 403b with 2% match. - Pension (!) vested at 3 years of service. - Health insurance 80/20 until out of pocket max. Vision and dental through reimbursement account that is pretty generously funded, IMO. FSA and dependent care accounts available. - 22 days PTO, includes sick time. - 4K dedicated CME funds, plus 5 days CME time separate from PTO. Unclear about malpractice coverage. I'm pretty pleased with the offer since it's a step up from my current salary and the benefits seem good but I would welcome outside perspectives. This is the first time I've ever come across someplace still offering a pension, so I don't know how to look at that. The way the nights and weekends are structured seems like a lot of work but I don't know if it's worth arguing about with the salary being what it is. I was also told that a lot of the PAs in the group prefer weekends and nights and are often wanting to trade for them (no guarantees, of course).
