Am I an exempt employee or a retail slave?

I am an assistant retail manager in Indiana. According to my employer, I am paid on a salaried basis with half-time supplemental pay for every hour worked over 40. I punch in and out and only recieve pay for the hours that I work. I am required to make my 40 hours each week. If come in under for the week (ex. 38.75)I recieve a phone call from the home office wondering why I did not make my hours but I do not recieve my entire base pay.
I certainly do not consider my job exective or professional as I take out the trash, ring sales, and mop the floors each day. Have I been falsely labeled as exempt?

You haven't given enough facts. Lots of professionals take out the trash (attorneys is small or one-person firms for example)

What else do you do? If you supervise two or more people, you are probably exempt. You can get a free, more complete analysis from the Dept of Labor. If you want to get a consultation and look at all the facts, you can also contact me but I do charge to do a full analysis. (317/251-1929)
