I've worked 20 of the last 35 hours, not including travel time and lunch breaks. I know some people do more, and I did, too, when I was younger. Overtime sucks now. I can't complain about the money, although we'd get by just fine, thank you. There is a serious management problem when your department is on overtime as much as mine. Overtime should be a stopgap solution, not a long term business plan. And, yes, it has been happening for years - over a decade in this department. There is more I'd like to say, but it would not be appropriate here. I hope it doesn't come to this because I would hate to start over again, but it may be time to look for work elsewhere...
I am not a 'happy camper' with my bosses or my job right now, and I foresee no changes coming.
