    The Odessa job looks legit. The pain one not so much

    Austin historically has a very tight physician market. Two of my well trained pain colleagues interviewed all over Austin and were offered 200k to start...if this legit job really paid 500k they would not have to post it on gaswork.

    For the Odessa, TX job:
    At the same time, they don't tell you the call frequency. That's not "too good to be true"; that's simply not good at all. Sure, you could make 380 while being on call q3-4. Not only that, but please notice that it's a cardiac anesthesia job, even if it doesn't require fellowship.

    Adding to that, it says "unknown" regarding day off after call while having 2k+ deliveries a year....
    And 4+1 weeks vaca?

    It would take more than that to get me to move to Odessa, TX!

    The Odessa job is probably better than the worst case scenario we are envisioning. I have met people who work out in west-texas and great jobs still exist out there.

    No way the Austin job is legitimate. Cross post the ad in the pain forum and see what they say.

    It was easy for me to overlook the on call numbers and get blinded by the initial salary numbers.

    I bet you the Odessa job isn't that bad. You are not going to fill a job in Odessa Texas paying 380K for Q3/4 call. Dollar per hour, thats not much more than what the groups in Dallas/Houston/Austin are offering.

    Somnia in El Paso (a much better city) is offering close to 500K for Q4-5 and they are still looking for people.

    The austin group posting lists a "chief crna" position. Doesn't necessarily mean they are doing procedures but I would have a hard time trusting this group if they were.

    How about 35 weeks Q2 call, no day off post-call, working at least 24 hours every weekend? :smack:
