Hours wasn't why I picked it, but getting paid for OT was. Long hours don't bother me, as long as there is a benefit.
Yep, I'm a fire protection engineer. Most A/Es either sub out the work, or have a mech/elec (sprinkler/alarm) in dept who is dedicated to the discipline.
Yeah, I've done Fire alarm drawings at both firms I've worked in.
What year did you graduate?
My A/E firm pays overtime until you become a manager.
federal employment law is pretty strict about payment of overtime. If you are deemed to be someone who is under supervision, not have a lot of authority over your schedule or work load your employer is required to pay overtime. The Dept of Labor has actually come down the last few years and enforced this a bunch, with lots of firms getting fined and having to back pay. At this point it doesn't surprise me if companies air on the side of caution by paying OT to non-managers.
To answer the original question:
Same with mine.
I could use an electrical drafter for a week or two that's not a complete idiot.
