  3. Hello Folks, Have got a job offer from Urgent care ( full time ). Its a salary base with benefits . I have few questions : 1) They have already mentioned the amount they would pay . Is there any chance for negotiations ? 2) They do have a good benefit package , does that count as a part of salary too? 3) Has or is any one working or was working in urgent care full time ? Can you please share your experience ? It's a ,much better offer than my present job ( where I am not even getting the hours that were promised to me ). I am very much tempted to take it
