  • Relevant training will be paid for by the company
  • Any overtime is paid at time & a half, any weekend work is paid at double time

Each day employees are paid 8 hours at their regular hourly rate and anything over this is paid at time & half, meaning that, each week, 40 hours are on the regular rate and 6.5 hours are time & a half.
