Question I could use the money but...

The company I work for is great for letting us work as many hours as we would like. The boss pretty much requires 50 hours a week but actually likes more. I work my 50 and for the longest time I worked (5) 11's to get 55. Some guys here work 5 on Saturday to get their 55-60. That being said. I could use the extra money for projects and such but anything above 10 hours is a struggle to be here longer than that. I have thought about getting an afternoon part time job to make extra money. I wouldn't mind working more, just not here. Am I dumb for giving up the great time and half money just to work somewhere else for less than my standard hourly wage? With winter coming my afternoons won't be filled with golf and race cars so I won't have much to do unless I can get extra cash for the car projects.
What would you all do?

Depends on what you do I guess. BUT no matter where you work for the extra money your not gonna want to be there. Take the time and a half where your at. Plus it gets you brownie points with the boss. Only a fool would turn down time and half to go work for minimum wage someplace else.

At my old job I tried to work extra hours when there was no "adult suprvision".
So much easier without supervisors micromanaging and moving you from job to job every half hour. Saturdays/Sundays were great in that respect. Sometimes I was the only one in the shop.

I'm a "machinist". I say it that way because my dad was a true machinist. I play a big, automated video game for a living. I go in early (2am) just so I can have my afternoons to do stuff I want to do.
I think y'all are right. I need to just suck it up and stay the extra time here even though it's sooooo boring most of the time.

Well, I'm one of those "real" machinist and Tool & Die Maker and I'd take OT for 1 1/2 any day over going someplace else for less than that. For Pete's sake Dude, you got it easy. Unfortunately though it's probably rather boring at times.

OT is basically required. While he would never say anything if you only worked 40 and got the rush jobs done, after a time you would be questioned as to what hours you are working. The only 40 hour employee is our driver and he's a retired guy just trying to make some spending cash.
