Note to past me: Do not take a job at a company requiring 24/7 on-call duty, you dumb fuck.

    @thousandecibels My boss is, paradoxically, the most agreeable of my colleagues.

    take the job if you know beforehand what that means, and if they pay accordingly.

    @12bitfloat I try to hire someone 40h / week and he has a 20h part time job.

    Fine for him and cool for us, but this is actually illegal in germany and no contract can change that.

    That depends. I was on a such duty for quite some time. Thanks for that extra gig I was able to make another salary and I rarely had to do anything. Maybe once or twice per month. For me the biggest minus was that phone could rang at any time. I had calls at 3 AM or during Christmas supper and I had to take care of whatever poped up
