New rules from Kronas. Any EXA hours worked over 44 must be entered to show actual hours worked. Wonder how WAGs is going to use this to screw us over.

Exas working over 44hours are because they can't get their work done or they can't delegate and organize the workforce effectively. or both. stop telling me its because of this or that. you are not an effective manager. But keep staying and working stupid hours and keep telling yourself that this behavior will get you a store one day.

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.
This is a very common mind set in Nj.

Google "liberals" and "trial lawyers." Actually, don't google it, you won't find anything surprising.

Google your house is on fire but you don't like "big government" interfering with your life. The fire department comes, and suddenly you are a very big believer in "big government".

Either that, or you are a man of conviction and you burn with the house. The Fire Department still has to come to make sure your neighbors are protected from your fire that you don't want to pay taxes to pay.

Trial lawyers are paid guns that do a job for a client. The client makes the money.

I do agree with another comment you made on another thread about christian influence (if I read you correctly) that is not helpful especially in areas of crime enforcement. Of course, my list may be longer than yours. ;)

The topic rages on about compensation lawsuits. From where I stand in Illinois, it looks like Walgreens has nothing to worry about.

I am not so inclined to worry about states outside of my area for the moment.

A lot of people think they have a "really great case" to bring to the court. A lot of schmucks will gladly tell them they have one.

Most people who go down this road do so thinking the purpose of the court is to take sides with the downtrodden because it is the right thing to do. These are the woefully ignorant that tie up the court's time and resources just to get a ruling on the law. Hint: the court is not concerned with your personal situation. It cares not if you are the nicest, most honest and hard worker in the company. It cares only about the law. Guess what? Walgreens is well within their legal rights to do what they are doing in the great state of political corruption bar none- Illinois.

Class action suit against Walgreens has been filed for uncompensated exa pay. Join this class action suit if you have been an exa in the past three years. This law suit won't take care of all the wrongs that Walgreens has put it's exa's through, but it will be a start.

True confession. I'm a Walgreens District Manager that is getting sued for racial discrimination. All I did was not promote a few minorities that had higher education, better work performance and were with the company longer than their white counter parts. I had to lower some of these minorities high score performance evaluations and increase the scores of some of the less qualified white counter parts' evaluations to justify my promotion practice, but it sucked that these minorities found out I did this and actually have proof that I did. Oh we'll, it won't hurt me to much, I have a Store Manager (initials) B.O.X. that I'll use as my scapegoat. He's slow witted, uneducated and has already been accused of being racist in the past already. Besides, he owes me for getting him out of those previous racial allegations and sexual misconduct complaints.

most exa's are only scheduled 45-50 hrs a week, but many exa's think, and the key word is THINK, that if they stay longer and "work" harder it shows some sort of initiative in hopes that they will be promoted. Stop bitching and just stop staying late. The other day my EXA was scheduled 6:30am-4:30pm, and he stayed until 6, not Walgreen's fault he wanted to stick around.
This dumb ass just admitted that his exa works over scheduled hours. Questions is did you pay your exa for those hours?????? I wonder why we have this law suit!

If a salaried employee CHOOSES to stay later than his scheduled shift, that is his/her choice. To expect to be compensated extra for voluntarily staying later than the company expected you to is asinine.

Are you a Salaried employee? This is the question that most people can't answer because they don't know. We all keep saying that exa's are salaried employees, but the truth is Walgreens only uses this term, "salaried" to benefit their own agendas. Salaried in definition by US labor laws definition is very different than what Walgreens exa's are subjected to. Salaried does not = abuseable. Just because you are now a SM and went through the abuse of exa before you got promoted doesn't justify current exa's abuse. Not to say even SM's are still abused.

Yes, I am a salaried employee. EXAs that are abused should do what they can to ensure fair treatment, but there are also plenty of EXAs who VOLUNTARILY stay longer than they are scheduled. No one is holding a gun to these EXAs heads to stay longer than scheduled.

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.
So did you write to them I did. If we all write to them telling our store and the amount of hours we put in who knows we might get something. There was a similar class action lawsuit and I got $400 bucks and didn't have to do anything.

That is completely NOT TURE. I am a very effective EXA and most of the time get out with a 44hr work week. I could even get out before that but at least in my district it is looked down upon if you leave before the store manager. In my district you will never get promoted if you are not there till 5pm. But what about CHRISTMAS. Do you not do your 6th day like all the rest of us??? Have you never had a sick MGT that you had to stay late and cover there shift and not get paid??? Have you never had a jerk manager that wants you there before they are and after they leave? Or a jerk manager that wants you to come in on your day off to run payroll so they don't have to. There are many reasons on might have to work over 44 and not get paid.

how would this screw us? it would only show that we work harder than the store manager. I think that it is to screw them. To show that the EXA does all the work and we don't need store managers

@getting called in- It's a bit funny to hear the "house on fire" anti-libertarian story told yet again. Though quite recycled, it's always good for a quick little brainless chuckle.

Of course, with a bit of logic and reasoning applied to the example, it begins to break down quite quickly.

There seems to be this desire to want to prove libertarianism leads to long term anarchy, if it isn't able to function IMMEDIATELY upon the complete dissolution of the current governing system.

So, yes, you would be right that if starting at midnight tonight our current political system completely disintegrated and went immediately to a sytem of libertarianism, that we might very well have difficulties in fighting fires or maintaining order.

But of course, politics change over time and don't work like that. I won't bore you with stories of private enterprise and lengthy discussions of libertarian economic and political philosophies- you can go to reason.com if you have that desire.
