We us a program called Timetracker, and I've also used Quickbooks...but it really doesn't matter since they pay us in Girl Scout Cookies.
i think its called exsell...?
We use Deltek, "Dilapidated Technology" I enter my time down to a 30 degree of accuracy with a project and phase code. i.e. : Family Intake Center- 050500, Schematic Design Phase - 20. Medgar Evers College Ad Service #1,285 - 992970, Post-CD-We-Don’t-Care-If-It-Ever-Gets-Built-As-Long-As-They-Keep-Paying-Us-For-Moving-Walls-Around-Because-Ryan-Is-Cheap-Labor Phase - 90. The SurfAudit Daemon v2.1 monitors my internet activity, phone activity, (and possibly other activities) so I have been assigned other personal codes to enter which get deducted from my paycheck at a rate of 50% of my equivalent hourly wage: Capla05Blog - 06CLBG, Reading - 00 Posting -01 (this post is costing me the equivalent of about 3 morning's bagels), Ordering City Wok Chinese at 9pm - 06CH00 - 00. Overtime is not added at a rate equal to my equivalent hourly wage, we all wear red and work for the collective.
on the last day of each month everyone opens up their timesheet and tries to remember what they worked on and for how many hours and what phase the project was in for the whole month. since you never really remember you just figure out what you worked on the most (besides internet surfing) and you put most of your hours on that with a little scattering of 1/4 hours and 1/2 hours on all kinds of other projects (whether you worked on them or not) then we get our paychecks, in Canadian dollars of course, so then you have to go to the bank and have it changed into American money in which case you find out that you really didn't make as much money as you thought you did when you got that sweet check in $CN.
i think i read about that. montana's feudal system and all...
I get to enter my time in by the fraction of a second first in an excell sheet. I do this daily. Then at the end of the week when I desperately want to go home, "and have my own life", I go back to that sheet and figure out what "paid breaks" I didn't actually take or count, then add them back in by moving all the numbers around, so that I can leave 15 minutes early. Then I get to put that time into quickbooks, print copies of both, have my boss approve them before I get paid. The bossman never looks at them until the last possible second then comes charging over to my desk, looks at me like he wishes I had to pay him to be there and asks me to explain every bit of time. Fun. That man can't remember his own name if his wife doesn't tell him and then he gets upset when he can't remember authorizing me to do a particular task, even though I have numerous records of him saying so.Then I finally get paid and the sum of money that had first lured me to the most expensive place on the planet, after taxes, interest, cookie fees and the california is so progressive fee, I get barely enough to cover "you live in paradise and will pay for it" rent. Not to mention gas being a mere 3.45 at the pump and me only needing to fill up every week to get to that job so that I can fill in my time.So that's how it happen.
I do my timesheets in Rhino.
Bruno my office dog and Walter my office cat are in charge of accounting. They be sure i dont run over on hours and blow through fee caps. And of course clients are sure to be billed for all of the time spent letting the two of them in and out of the sliding glass door near my desk. They are very thorough and quite professional to say the least.
