    I worked 80 hours one week. So that is 40 hours of overtime in one week.

    I do. Time and a half. I can work 16 hours of easy overtime and almost double my take home pay. I do at least 8 hours a week.

    Salary would be nice because you can leave early sometimes and stay late sometimes and always get the same pay but I can't really leave early on my job because there always has to be someone in this seat. I like overtime because I can do other jobs and still make my time and a half rate. Plus I like having the option. Some weeks if I'm really broke I can work 80 hours and make a fuck ton of cash. I just don't have any off time but it's worth it once in a while.

    I'm paid base plus a commission, so in a way I am earning more if I work more hours.

    You pretty much can't leave early at a dealership. They pay well but the hours suck ass.

    when we were building trading floors it was normal to work 80-105 hours or more weeks for a month and a half and then collapse on a beach for the next 2 months. i never got overtime but the bonuses (and bottomless expense account) for getting the floors done under the allotted time were better than overtime.

    400-500 hours of OT a year is enough for me. Thats pretty much a given without having to sign up for it that much around here. The extra cash is nice to sock away for down the road.
