Agree with Wayne - make it work for you.
This guy wants the benefits of an employee, but only willing to pay when you work. Personally, I would walk away unless he can have a mature conversation with you and set parameters.

I have a few guys that do for me what he is requesting - work a few hours here and there, especially once a project is wrapping up and it's minor changes. Unless it's an on-location shoot, the editors set their schedules; if they need to work on my gear, it's on their schedule at their convenience; with that trade they bill me hourly. Setting project rates with a written scope of work that you both develop seems best. But you can't be on-call at his office. It's all about communication and relationships. He doesn't seem to want that.
