    Before I became an “exempt” employee, I was a contractor with the company… we got 1.5x pay for any hours over 40 each week, so a number of 70 hour work weeks was pretty nice for a while… ;-)

    As an exempt employee, I found myself putting in 50+ hours most weeks, and even more during a “release death march”. I sort of enjoyed being important, doing good work. Then we got a manager who basically made it impossible to do good work: micromanaged (badly), loaded us down with last minute additions, and changes, some of them in contradiction to both our  work practices and  industry standard practice. It only took about 3 months of this before we all just decided to start putting in our 40 hours, some of them spent on “personal development”. So far as I know this wasn’t a big unified front: We were just all sick and tired. We just worked regular hours, on goals that we  felt were important. He lasted only about another month, having promised much which we didn’t deliver. Strangely, though, most of us never did go back to working (much) unpaid overtime.

    Years ago, when I was working in Washington DC, they caught a Janitor who had an even Sweeter “Deal” than that.

    He had, for several years, been using a Storage Area in the basement of the Federal Building where he worked as an Apartment. He’d realized that that everyone else had forgotten it even Existed. Over a period of several months, he’d managed to smuggle in all the Appliances and Furniture anyone could want and had painted & fixed the place up so that, except for a lack of Windows, it was as well equipped as an Apartment which half the people working in the building could not have afforded.

    The Money he saved by not having to pay Rent & Utilities allowed him to take a nice Hawaiian vacation every year.

    Until he got Caught, that is.

    Maintenance Guy/Janitor has a sweet deal going, but he is risking everything including his life by antagonizing Alice of the Fist of Death!
