Agreed.

My last work term was salaried, I had to work overtime without pay on several occasions, but I managed to turn my 20+ hours of overtime into one pity day off by the end.

This current work term is hourly, and any overtime goes into a stockpile. At the end I can either take off equivalent time or get paid for it (straight time though, but whatever).

I'm making a bit more than my last good hourly gig and I'm salaried. As far as the once a month thing goes, see if you can set yourself up with a mid-month advance.That's what I do. I've specified how much I'd like to get and I get a cheque that's post-dated until mid-month. I'll probably switch to once a month later this year but it's nice knowing I have that extra chunk-o-change every couple of weeks.

Not always true, depends on the company. Most companies I will agree with this, but with my company my boss is paid by the site. He pays me and 4 other guys a flat salary for the year, it doesn't matter if we take 4hrs or 14hrs on a site. Theres been plenty of times that we've finished our sites early and gotten to go home early.

But with most formal "office" jobs that is completely true, salary=hourly w/o OT

I have been on salary for a longtime now, in the long run it balances out with a hourly wage, what is nicer with salary is that you are tend to be covered with you get sick for a couple of days.

I did that once. I headed back to school Aug 29th, and they stopped paying me in November

I agree with most here, salary is great as long as your employer doesn't abuse your work hours. For the same pay hourly is usually better (depending on expectations and benefits), but with a huge raise salary is probably the way to go.

Don't forget the beer and hard liquor.

The last time I worked on salary, I was one of Uncle Sam's stooges. I can remember working for months at a time with no days off, often 13+ hours a day, with no comp time to be had. Honestly, unless I was getting paid a ridiculous amount of money, I doubt I will ever go that route again. Technically I am a salary worker right now, but I get paid an hourly rate. Plus I need prior authorization to work overtime. Yeah, being forced to only work banker's hours can be such a burden.

Really depends on your management.

I call my boss and say, "I've cleard out my deck for today and just want to blow off the afternoon" and if there isn't anything else going on he says, "have fun."

But on the bottom side of that I typically work from 8:00 to 6:00 every day and a 12 hour day isn't unusual.
