    Are the expectations different for hourly and salaried employees?

    A week before I was let go from a job I really didn't like, I had a conversation with the controller, She asked why I was behind on my work (I did two different jobs that competed for time) and I explained that I hadn't been working all the overtime I usually work and why should I be the only one to work every weekend, and there was an unequal work load.She said I had to make sure I got my work done. She said I had to take continuing education classes outside my 8-5 hours and she has salaried employees take classes on weekends. Is that realistic expectation for an hourly employee.

    In my experience salaried employees tend to put in less hours because they don't get paid overtime and feel their position deserves it.  While hourly employees tend to get paid for overtime and do the grunt work.

    However, getting an education is important for any job, salaried or hourly.
