The federal Fair Labor Standards Act states that hourly employees are entitled to overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours in a week. However, self-storage facility managers are sometimes asked to work “off the clock,” particularly if they live on site. They might be approached to meet with a tenant after hours, oversee contractor work outside of their scheduled shift, or participate in a weekend community event. When this happens and they aren’t paid an annual salary, they must be compensated.

Employees who find themselves in these situations often feel obligated or even guilted into agreeing to extra hours without pay. In this thread on Self-Storage Talk, the industry’s largest and most active online community, members are discussing their experience of being in this predicament and how they responded.
