    Hello

    I do a 24/7 shift on a rota, so I am on call from 6pm till 8am the next day, I am trying to get a picture of how much money other employers pay for this.

    Thanks.

    5 years and 2 employers ago, we had a pager that rotated amongst three techs. We'd take it for 2 weeks at a time, and if I remember correctly, we'd get like $100 extra per week.

    Nowt. The higher up the food chain you go, the less likely it is you get on-call allowances, but the greater your overall compensation.

    I'm surprised people have said nothing.... 1st place £300 a week (Friday-Friday), current place £380 a week. These figures can vary as I work for an outsource company, so if you get paid X and are tupe'd in, we have to continue to pay you X, but the figures mentioned are the going rate going rate for previous and current employer.

    We also get paid per hour overtime for problems that take over an hour to resolve out of hours.

    £25 per week night and £50 per day at the weekend. Used to be anyway but now I work in another time zone I don't get paid for week days anymore. I'm not complaining.

    Time taken to resolve issues goes towards flexi time.
