How often do you work overtime
August 24, 2009 10:03am CST
Hello mylotters, do you often work overtime? How many hours do you work every day? I am working for a trading company, and most of time I work for eight hours a day in my office, and after I am home, I will work at home. Most of my customers are from Euro and America State, so sometimes I have to sleep late because I need to talk to them and there's time zone... When I get order from them I will be happy, but when I work overtime time and time again, I feel tired. How about you?

I work 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week. My boss is a real stickler for people not working over time because staff that works over time really cuts into the budget we have for the year which means we may come up short whenever we look at the books. She really is trying to cut down on the amount of people that are working because we've been overstaffed on several occasions so some people have gotten time off without pay. That's fine for those people but I really needed the money so I've opted to work when I could of had time off. An 8 hour shift about kills me so there is no way that I'd be able to work a lot of over time. I'm sure I could handle about an extra hour or so of work but I'm not sure I could put in 3 or 4 hours of work. I'm too tired and ready for the day to end when 5:30 comes.

hello, highflyingxangel, I have to apology for my late reply to you. Yeah, work overtime with extra paid is good, working is your company is better than workng in our company, we often work overtime without extra paid, and we have to pretend that we like to do this. That's what the tragic is. Hope you good luck!

If i had a job i might actually work over time, right now i am unemployed so i am trying to make the best of it online by doing little things like mylot and of course writing articles for different websites that i like to write for. I am looking for a job but its hard to do when you don't have a lot of experience in the field that are hiring. I work a hard couple of hours on the internet a day and i at least try to write an article for some website in that day of working so i can earn from it and that's important to me.
