  •  My field too. (5+ / 0-)
    OT is requested, lots of people just put in the extra time and avoid the hassle of calling the boss.  
    My collegues all work out in the field, on dairy farms to be exact. We cannot go over 39 hours a week, but many times we have. It either goes off the books comp time, or they will eat the time b/c it's easier to deal with then the b.s we'll get from our idiot director. H.R. actually implement a new time card system to stop this abuse. I've said to them (my collegues) over and over: do NOT give away your time! It doesn't just effect that person, but the rest of us too: "well, so and so can do the same thing in 39 hours why can't you?".
    It's all coming to a big fat head though. My bosses boss hates him, and for good reason. It's funny but I like my him, my bosses boss and enjoy talking to him, while my direct boss, not at all.

    I'm so sorry if I'm alienating some of you/ YOUR WHOLE FUCKING CULTURE ALIENATES ME. Bikini Kill
