By definition you are salary. Only two exception to this rule is if you are a computer professional you have to make at least 22.75 an hour to be qualified exempt. There are also exception for medical and ag.

This lawsuit/investigation may be what spurred some of the changes. It is very subjective if a EXA is exempt or not.

Honestly, I hope walgreens is found guilty of this. As an EXA, I put in over 70 hours per week because that is what was expected if I wanted to get promoted. As a SM, I work less hours than I did as an EXA. Thanks for sharing.

It doesn't matter what "you signed up for". It's what is mandated by state law.

There are currently several potential suits stating the same thing within various groups in corporate as well.

Oh and for the people that state thats what you signed up for can shove it! I agree that when you take on a salaried position you are expected to work extra hours.....however i doubt people who signed up were expected to be abused and taken advantage of either. The SM needs to kick in and work some of those crazy hours as well....are they not salary? On top of making more money then the EXA? SM's think because they have that position that they all of a sudden earned their right to do nothing, leave early and take advantage of employees because they felt it was done to them....sorry but not the right attitude!

As a Store Manager I don't make my EXA work any longer hours than I personally work. If the store isn't right, it's the responsibility of BOTH the MGR and EXA to work together to fix it...if it means coming in at 4 AM, coming in on your day off, etc. I think most of the Store Managers in our market have this philosophy too.

The last SM I had had this philosophy and I respected him greatly for it (and no, I wasn't even the EXA). The SM that I now have has the belief that he can work his EXA "like a dog" because he needs to "pay his dues" if he wants to be a SM. The EXA is now going back to school to obtain a degree in a year or so that will get him out of this "hell hole" that the SM created. By the way, this SM is one of the most disliked SMs in the district -- and for good reason.

Funny that in California stores run just fine with their EXA's only working 44 hours. Why can't the rest of us figure it out?

I schedule my EXA 5 9hr shifts, 45 hours a week unless it's December or inventory prep week then it's go time. I don't understand why you are being scheduled more than that
funny how that works

I work 50-60 hour weeks (scheduled, not by choice). My SM works 40 and then blames me for things 'not being right.'. Drives me nuts.

That store manager should be fired.

I'd love to see a scan of a schedule where you're literally scheduled to be there 60 hours in one week.

My schedule from two weeks ago had me down for 54 hours. Usually it falls from 52-55 hours (days, some nights) outside of the holiday season. This is district policy. This, among other things, is why I'm looking for something else.

That's why California stores I've been to look like crap.
