ok who here likes over time and who hates it?

me i fall into the overtime whore category. but for the life of me i cant understand why people cry like a 2 year old when they have to stay 30 mins or a hr late so i can finish my job. i can understand if its a salary person but when your getting paid by the hr why not stay and make 50% more per hr just to sit there?

I don't mind the little overtime at the end of the day. I am just sick of working 6&7 days a week. I would love to be able to leave on Friday and not come back til Monday every week

Too much of anything is not a good thing. When you're forced to work it, or it's expected of you, then it becomes a burden.

I love Overtime. with that being said, when im supposed to leave at 5, and i wanna leave at 5, and have no reason to stay will 530, get me the fuck out of there.

I remember when i was in sales we had to wait till everyone was done thier drawer. FUCKING BULLSHIT! i get punished cause the other 3 guys are fucking idiots and take 35 minutes to do what it too me 12-15?

Don't mind overtime at all unless I all ready had plans. My boss knows that if I turn down OT its because of previous plans.

I like to work overtime and really like doubletime! I usually work 1000 or more hours of overtime per year. It pays for my car hobby and vacation.

I am mixed in the middle. I have to work 58 hours a week. that is our work schedule. 6 days a week. and they want us there on sundays too. I am used to the hours, although I would love to just work monday through friday, I sure would miss all the extra money!

Be very happy you can make extra money. I couldn't buy overtime where I'm at. 40 hrs, not a minute of overtime. Happy to have 40, just want a little more at times.

I work an hour or so a day of overtime. When the economy took a shit they capped us to only 50 hrs. a week. It use to be unlimited so I would work 12 hours every day. Now it depends on how busy we get. I have been putting in a lot more time lately. I like to come in early instead of work late though. Starting next week I wont be able to. :mad:

Salary employee for the last 10-15 years, Usually get here 20-30 minutes early & work through lunch while eating (1 Hour lunch). I'd rather come in earlier if asked to work OT than stay later in the evening

I work offshore & in the office planning wells when I'm not on a rig, I've only been home for like 2 weeks since the beginning of July. Right now I dont need the money, I need time with my family. I got home on thurs & got called today to go check out some equipment 4 hours away at the end of the week. :(
