After punch out tomorrow, Fri. is going to be OT all day.......
why you bragging? I can one up ya.
I've been on disability since late April.
i had overtime on monday tuesday and wednesday this week. i get overtime everyday unless i put in an 8 hr request
I had exactly one hour of OT last week.
That's something to be proud off.
looking like 5 hr of OT this week
are there parts of the country that don't get paid o/t daily?
No but there are drivers who have less than 8 hours of on road time and are paid the guarantee only. We have a couple of drivers in my center who are normally punched out and gone by 1630-1700 and get little to no OT, although one of them has started working later as his daughter just started college.
Our center manager is (usually) very strict about 9.5, although we did have one driver punch out at 2115 on Monday.
Wouldn't Dave Ramsey recommend all the OT you can get? Can you request more?
Just for one upmanship.................I'm retired.
And THAT is something to be proud of.
no problem with O/T here. Monday we had over 20 drivers punch out after 9.5.
FYI you don't get ot until after 8 hours even if you have over 40 hours Mon thru Thurs. That's how it is here.
He does recommend getting all the OT you can. That is a good suggestion as there is OT available.
I've been pulling down 6-8 hours of OT every week. Take it when it's there I say.
I'm at 8 or 9. That's about right for me.
I averaged 50 plus hous a week (including bonus) for 20 years. The last 2 years I'm down to 46-47 hours a week. Checks are smaller but life is better.
A better life is always good. Back when my kids were growing up I figured I needed at least 44 hours to keep the budget balanced.
This is my 3rd summer of retirement and it sure beats work!
Friday night will be a 6th day of work, and I am going to HOT "LANTA, so I am looking at 11 hours of OT at doubles rate............CHA CHING
Been Laid off for the last 3 years and I still manage to average 50+ a week.
