I am currently applying for new jobs. At my current position, I am salaried but am compensated at the same hourly rate for any hours I work over 40. I have consistently worked 40+ hours a week for the entire year, and am on track to make about $8,000 more than my stated base salary for the year. When discussing current compensation with potential employers, how much detail should I go into? Can I just say "I make around (number I made this year) in total compensation, or should I explain the salary + OT deal? Thanks!
