Salary. It works out great for me because my boss doesn't really care when I come in to work, as long as I get everything done that I'm supposed to. I rarely work a full 40 hour week, and he's fine with that because I get my stuff done. Of course, it would be nice to get overtime and holiday pay, but I figure it all evens out in the end, and this way I don't have to keep track of my hours.

I put "other" as I'm currently an intern, and not getting paid at all. But last summer I got paid hourly wages at Target! I'm not exactly of the age when it's possible to have an 8-5 job. (I know the phrase is 9-5, but that's an east coast thing, nothing here starts that late.)

...It's a siggie.

I'm salary. It sucks when I'm working 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., but it's nice when I can leave early on a Friday. My normal workday is supposed to be 8:00-5:00 with an hour for lunch. I tried working "normal" hours for a few weeks to see what it was like, but I couldn't get everything done!
When are women going to face the fact that they donít know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?
