I took a Manager position a year ago. When I took the position we discussed that it was a salaried 40 hour a week position. After I accepted, my Director informed me (a month or so later) that the expectation is 50 hours per week. I've been working that even though I wasn't told the expectation up front but now I'm exhausted. I've tried to talk to him and he won't budge on his expectation. I've tried to find out from HR if this is a Hospital requirement for Management or if it's his requirement but the only thing they'll say is "Your position is a 40 hour a week salaried position". I again went to him this week with a respectful proposal about working 40 hours and how I would make it work so my unit didn't suffer. I also explained that with starting my Masters degree soon, I really needed more time at home. He again stated his requirement of 50 hours a week but then started saying things like "I don't think you really understand the definition of work-life balance" and "I think you're looking for happiness in the wrong places". He was very condescending. I'm angry and disappointed. I understand he's my Director and I do my 50 hours plus all the hours at home where I answer texts, emails, and phone calls. My question is... what would you do? I'm ready to look for a different job as I feel this has caused a rift between us and knowing he won't budge at all gives me no hope that things will change. Can a job make you work 20 extra hours a pay period that you aren't paid for?
