  • I would think that t means on-call, no regular schedule. Ask the employer to be certain.

  • casual, they will call you last minute when they need you, could be often or maybe not so often.

  • it means you will have part time hours and they will call you in when they need you, typically when someone calls in sick or needs vacation time, etc and they need a replacement.. basically you are a sub.

    What this means is you work for them, (again basically like a sub), BUT if a position opens up, you can post for it.

  • If you didn't know, then you should have asked. No one wants an employee who is afraid to ask questions when she/he does not understand something.

  • Be sure to ask about their PRN requirements. That sounds like what you are going to be working.. it stands for Per Request as Needed. Usually very sparatic on the schedule and available for call ins. Where I work, we have a requirement, that you have to work 16 hours/month to keep your PRN status.
