Overtime Demands

While state employees may be required to work overtime, overtime requirements are not generally an ongoing aspect of state of Utah jobs. Most state employees work a regular Monday-Friday, morning through afternoon schedule, except employees who work in institutional settings and some who work in public-safety related jobs.
