We occasionally offer "on-call" assignments to qualified Graiders at a higher pay rate because these assignments are time-sensitive and must be completed in a short turnaround period. Typically this rate is $3/hour above regular pay rates.
Watch for emails with "ON CALL" in the subject line. We'll provide assignment details, and you can claim the assignment by being the first to respond. Sometimes, depending on time of year and current assignment volume, it can take a while for an assignment to be claimed, so even if you're late seeing the email, don't hesitate to respond if you're available and willing to take the assignment.
By picking up an on-call assignment, you are committing to completing the assignment by the stated deadline. Hall passes cannot be used on on-call assignments because the assignment is already urgent and the window may have passed for other Graiders to be able to take on the assignment.
