I am salary. I don't work more then 40 hours a week very often. We have a few times a year that I have to put some long hours in but it is workable. I also take an hour lunch every day and get paid for it. So it works out pretty well for me. If I am late because of traffic I don't have to worry about it. My boss marks the girls that are hourly time sheets up all the time because they don't get in or get over 40 hours. She think they should have exactly 40 hours no more and no less. What the heck is 5 or 10 mins either way. I just don't get it.
Yeah, I don't want to be salary wth my company. you are penalized for working less than 43 hours/week and I hate that. I still get full benefits with my hourly wage and if I do work over 40 hours I get time and half for it.
I'm salary but I make sure they give me comp time if I'm required to work extra. For example, I had to fly out on a Sunday morning for a work conference, so I took the following Thursday off. Didn't make up for the 12 hour days I worked when I was there, but I take that time elsewhere :)
Hugs mama! I used to be salaried at my last several jobs but I'm now hourly and I'm fine with that:) I also work part time so it works out well.
:( that stinks
Quoting christaberk:If I were hourly, I would make more than $20 per hour. But. I work way more than 40 hours every week.
