Check with your union rep-the Kaiser I worked for considered 20 hours a week to be a benefitted position. Stay around long enough then bid into positions as they come up. Good luck!

Unless you really want to be at the beckon call of Kaiser, I wouldn't bother. I've been trying to get a permanant position for a year now & no such luck. In November of this year I'll have wasted 2 years of my life on-call with them. Still no job, no benefits.

You do not have UNION REP since you are on call. The best you can do is apply to all those internal positions posted inside the board bulletin or online. It is up to you to become a permanent employee. No benefits at all while you are on call. you have to make it happen. Kaiser will be happy to keep you on call forever!

That is not true. You are Union when you are On Call and do have a Union Rep. I am an On Call and talk to my Union Rep often. When you are On Call, Union says your schedule is based on YOUR availability, not the demands of the employer. Your employer cannot make you work when you are not available. You are not a slave to Kaiser. I work when I want. Because On Call does not guarantee you hours, it is visa versa. You are only required to work one day a month, although no one could live on that.I love being On Call because I control my schedule. It is like being self employed. When I need time off, I do not have to ask or worry about seniority, I just take the time off. You get 1$an hour more in lieu of benefits but I get my benefits at a reasonable rate through CC.Talk to your Union Rep about how On Call works. If you are not getting enough hours, you can talk to your Department manager about applying for more hours in other departments. You can be On Call for other departments as well. I do that sometimes. I love Kaiser. I get plenty of hours so I have no need to look for a full time position.

It's not a matter of how long you are On Call that gets you a full time. I mean, ok yes, you need to be working for 6 months before you can apply to another department. It is luck that you get a full time job. You just keep applying for Internal Candidate jobs and one day you will get one. Yes, it goes by seniority but that doesn't mean you could not get a full time position. I love on call! I get to choose my hours and days and I do not work weekends or holidays.
