Other info:
One position is 64 hours/pp; the other is 70 hours/pp. 
Both are considered full-time and eligible for all benefits. 
Shift is listed as 6:30am to 5pm. 
The RT's take 6-7 days of call in a 6 week period. That is usually 2-3 weekend days (not full weekends).  
RT's self schedule their call.  They choose 3 days they want first, then after everyone has scheduled themselves they repeat the process and they choose their second 3-4 days.  
This allows everyone to avoid the days they need off.  They may also request to not take call on certain days through our request off system.  
They are required to be at the hospital within 30 minutes of their beeper or pager notifying them of a case.  
This job offers a lot of perks in regards to their scheduling.  We offer 10 hour days and limited call with only 1 weekend per 6 week schedule.
