I have a question regarding what constitutes an administrative position. I am currently on salary, and because of staff shortages it looks like I'm going to be hitting 100hrs this pay period. I'm already looking into getting copies of my pay stubs to take to my state's labor department, but I'd like to have some idea of what constitutes an 'administrative' position for salary purposes.
I work for a solar panel installation company. My work is a mixture of dispatching, data entry, report creation, and a dash of "graphic design". I take calls from customers, work with our salespeople to make sure appointments are attended, enter the data from the initial consultation, and then draft up paperwork for the second consultation appointment. I work in Sketchup to do layouts of our clients' homes, then take that and put it in a Word doc, and then use a program to create a report based upon the client's energy usage and possible costs of paying an electrical company vs getting solar panels installed.
There are aspects of this job that certainly seem administrative, and others that do not. I do not have any managerial authority, I am not in charge of anyone, and though I work with our salespeople to assign appointments, I'm not in charge of scheduling or payrole or anything like that.
My question is - would all that be considered administrative for the purpose of me being paid a salary and being exempt from OT pay?
