    actual hours or hours I get paid for?

    my stipend is a set 15 hours/week, but I actually do MAYBE 7-8 hours of work.

    Put in only the paid hours but it doesn't matter.

    Nice to see that SDN members are rather productive members of society,

    I pull in at least 75 hours per week nowa days.:scared:

    I don't get overtime pay either for tutoring because I'm self employed but isn't there a law against that if you are employed, I think it's illegal for them to work you more than 40 hours without overtime pay.
     
  9. RT job: depends on the schedule and whether I feel like overtime or not, so between 24-60 hrs per week
    Continuing education writing job: flexible hours, as it's a freelance gig, but usually <10 hrs per week
    Volunteer EMS/Fire: depends on call volume and availability, but I try to be available about 24-36 hrs per week
    Research/Writing: depends on what I'm working on but lately, 16-20 hrs per week would probably be pretty close
     
  10. It depends on the type of work you're doing and I believe it varies from state to state as well.

    For those of you with tech jobs, what certifications did you have to get them or did you train/certify afterwards? Did you apply online or ask people you knew?

    "Exempt employee" (most salaried employees) are "exempt" from certain wage and hour laws including OT.

    Common cert for entry level engineer is EIT. It's not that big of a deal but it gives you a little bit more credibility when applying for a job and maybe a small bonus or raise.

    MDApps:
    Throughout my degree I've worked as many as 32 hours a week while taking 16 upper division science credits. Average is probably around 15 hrs/wk with 15 upper division science credits

    50 hours of real work (biopharm. company) and full time Masters program (18 credits) on top of that plus thesis write up. Hubby is a busy guy. At least he's not doing all of that AND studying for his MCAT like last year! Phew!
