Typical overtime policies?
I'm an in house HVACR technician for a McDonald's franchise. I'm the only one in the company that does HVACR. I'm an employee not an independent contractor.
I only get overtime after 8 hours if the call was placed the same day after 12pm. If I have a week day off and get called in for an emergency I do not get overtime. If its a weekend, however, I do. They told me if I work over 8 hours in a day I have to put the extra hours on a different day on my time card so they don't have to legally pay me overtime. I'm paid 1/2 rate for picking up parts, drive time, paperwork/administrative tasks.
Is this normal/fair? Do you guys get overtime after 8 hours in one day regardless of when the call was placed? Are you guys on call every single week? Do you get paid the same rate for administrative stuff? Do you get commission on parts or profit share?

Get that in writing.
I would start looking for a new job immediately. Don't even think its legal what their doing
Yea that doesn't sound legal.
I get paid overtime after 40 not 8.
If I cut out early and I work late the next day it washes out.
ANY call outs or weekend jobs iz overtime.
Sundays and holidays are double bubble.
I would have a talk with whomever is trying to bypass your legal rights.
What about other tasks like parts and drive time between stores?

If I serviced a single location, then driving from point to point wouldn't be an issue. I'd drive my personal vehicle to work, collect my tools and go to work. After 8, I'd wrap it and go home with my cell phone turned OFF.
Your employer wants you to service multiple locations, then driving to those locations is now part of your JOB.
Your employer wants to interrupt your scheduled day OFF with his problems? Then you get OT for that, whether it is Wednesday at 11AM or Saturday at 11:30 PM.

You should be getting paid your hourly rate to do anything that pertains to the job. Never heard of getting paid half your pay to do this stuff
wow..... not right... pick up half the parts for half the pay.....
it was working.... played with it.... now its broke.... whats the going hourly rate for HVAC repair
McDonalds Franchises are not cheap.
Why does the owner have to be so cheap ?
They did however start me at $40/hr. So I feel like I shouldn't be complaining. Is that enough to not complain about those other things?
