At the same time, we would have a slow period with no remodels going on, and I’d be given lots of “computer based learning” days where I would sleep in and do absolutely nothing at home. Even drove to the beach for a week during that.
With my current job, I’m hourly, so they definitely want me to take my two days off each week. I get enough OT working over everyday on those five days I’m already working. I’ve worked 11 days in a row with my current job, but that was just poor scheduling at the time. Worked a six day work week with a day off at the beginning of the week, and then worked a five day work week with the two days off at the end of it. I try not to schedule anyone like that. It sucks.
