My longest shift was over 24 hours, 8 regular time and over 16 double time. Plus I get paid for meals. You guys need to join a union!

You guys shoulda been welders. I started out making $15/hr, plus i make another $7/hr tax free since i work more than 25 miles away. I put 2 peices of pipe on a spinner and stick weld pipes together to make collars so we can move our oil on the pipelines:) i love Bi-Con. multiply that by a garunteed 40/hr week, and you get $880 gross per week. And if you work saturdays and sunday its time and a half. Its a great bussiness. We supply all of the giant oil tanks you see at refineries for the shell company. In a couple of years ill be 21 years old and i think i might by a welding rig and work in the feild for them. If you buy your own truck you get paid an extra 12/hr for your truck and supplies. That could be a minimum of $1360 a week. Ill be like a tcoa for each day of the week:)

What state? It may vary from the type of business, and whether or not you signed a waiver when you got hired saying you could work overtime without getting time.5 pay.

In CA (I always reread over the OT and 2x rules) if you work over 8 hours in a given day, 12 am t0 11:59pm, you get over time for every hour after. If you go over 12 hours in a given day you get double-time for every hour after. If you work over 40 hours in a given week, as in Sunday through Sat night, you get paid over time for all time over 40 hours. If you work all 7 days in a given week and surpass the 40 hour mark, the 7th day is all double time after 40 hours. BUT a given week, I recall, is Sun-Sat, not Wed through Wed. So you can work up to 12 days in a row without any pay variation -in this aspect-.

I am pretty sure those are good through 05, as that was the date on the poster and should be pretty accurate.

EDIT: So you worked a avg of 12hrs a day every day of the week?

overtime pay is over-rated since the tax man bones you even harder the more you work :2cents:
all you have to do is put your money in a pre-tax 401k and they cant touch it... until later

Only work 8... then leave for the day!! they can't keep you there! :)

Plus... they have to pay you by law for the extra time that you work!!

You need to tell Jesse Jackson, or Johnny Cochran!! :rolleyes:

as for overtime it depends on how you work... i am a part time non union employee of fedex express... well during peak i was working 52 hour weeks.... some weeks, i was paids like 37 hours of regular time and 15 hours of overtime, other weeks i got 40 hours straight pay with the rest overtime..... if you work more than 8 hours a day they have to pay overtime, unless you dont go over 40 that week and then they can basically screw you and just pay you straight time
