    my center manager (who luckily we know many of the same people and get along great, but that probably doesn't matter) told me basically during peak you can work as much as you want.

    I know anything over 5 hours as a part time employee is overtime, but what happens if I go over 8 hours on the day? Will I be getting overtime after 5 or will I be considered full time during that period and only hit OT after 8? Thanks

    Your boy, matty_lawn

    Overtime after 5 in preload. But no OT for going out as a helper afterward.

    From what I've read on here, some buildings revert you to straight time for the first 8 hours if you reach that point, and OT is only after 8. My building is easy: OT after 5 hours. Period. 6th punch is ALL time and a half, and the seventh punch is all double time.

    So if you work 20 hour days during peak, which some people around here did, 15 of those hours will be paid at 1.5x.

    20 hour days during peak? how?

    I consider myself a hard worker but wtf

    Good question. I've only made it up to 15 hours myself. I assume many of those guys were certified to do easy jobs like hazmat responding or driving irreg trains. They probably only had to do one of the harder jobs like unloading/loading/preloading for one shift, then it was all gravy. Management here is pretty easy-going on double shifters, especially during peak, so even amongst the harder jobs, they would've gotten an easy assignment anyway.

    In the 177, if you work over 5, you have the right to work 8. Overtime is only once you go over 8 hours in a day.

    LOL as much as YOU want. More like your supervisors will pressure you to work however much they need you to work

    When I was younger and had more energy and stuff, the max I worked was in the 70's hour range. I have seen some people going 90-100 hours in the hub during peak.

    Since you work in a small building matty_lawn, your opportunities will vary. If you can get 2am-3pm type hours, that will probably be your max. Between preload and driver helper.

    The best I did was in 2008-2009, when I was FT and just reached the then 24/hr top rate. 60-80/hr weeks, OT any thing over 40hr or any 6th or 7th punch. (New England_)

    Do you know where I can find out how large my hub is compared to others in my state or New England? I'm actually curious. I have no idea if mine is considered big or small

    Never heard of it turning helper pay into OT.

    I believe going on road as a helper is technically a second shift in a different job class, so OT over 8 not 5.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    Yea but we already work more than 8hours on preload....so all helper hours afterwards are OT hours (at a different "helper"pay rate however)

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    Yup....it does, I've seen it on my paystub.

    At my hub. Anything over 4 hours on a shift. Anything over 8 hours per day. And if you work 6days the 6th day is ALL OT!!

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    Wrong....entire 6th day punch at time and a half varies by local. PTers in my local only get OT on a 6th day after 5 hours work at straight time.
