sscheinfe Posted April 21, 2011 Share Posted April 21, 2011 So, I've had some interviews so far. The job market here in NYC seems pretty tight, though there are a lot of positions, interviews are still scarce. The first job I was interviewed for was HEM/ONC, which is very depressing for me, and besides they never called me back. The second job was for a M-F,9-7/8 job doing basically just trigger point injections. This third interview is at a pretty good place, general medicine family clinic, but they want me there 9-6, 5 days a week, with every other Saturday (thus half the month six days a week, 198 work hours a month). Now I'm trying to weigh this. I was optimally looking for a 12x3, 12x4 or 8x5 job, as I have a life and responsibilities outside work, (as well I want to enjoy the beautiful summer--spent the last two locked in PA school!). This job far exceeds those hours and is at the outer lmits of what I think I can tolerate hour-wise, leaving me very little personal time. I don't know yet what the pay is, I am going back tomorrow for a second interview. Am I being too picky, for a first job? Granted, jobs are hard to come by, but I also know my personal limitations...and a bit scared of six-day all-day work weeks. but want to hear what your opinions are. If I do give it a shot and take it, how much should they be paying me for a 5.5 day work week? Like, both hourly and fixed what would be reasonable? Thanks for the advice.
