How often do you work overtime? Have you ever worked overtime but been paid for nothing? I worked for an engineering design company, it's very frequent to work overtime, and we usually got nothing for it. Does this happen to you?

Fortunately, I all got paid working overtime in all my passed jobs. I would have no motivation to work overtime for somebody if I don't get paid...

Yep. My job never pays us overtime because we are a summer job and for some reason or other they don't have to pay us overtime. I don't mind staying late because I love it up there (I work at a water park) and I always have a ton of fun. There is always something amusing going on and the people are great. I hope to find a job that has such great people when I graduate college and have to get a "grown-up" job. LOL

no, i don't like overwork. when i work off, i go home at once. i think you must refuse your boss asking. if you refuse definitely, he will not ask you again. if you shy to say, he will cheat you.

I earlier used to work in a software company and usually work in these companies demands overtime work. But you never get anythin for working for extra hours. This happens with every software company they only want work no matter how much time it takes.

Before, l ever worked a few months of overtime for my company doing accounting works and not getting paid for the work done. One of my ex-colleague had resigned and l had to take over her job until they found a suitable candidate. My boss knew that l had worked very hard to update everything until the new candidate came but he just kept quiet. This is my first experience working for a stingy boss.
