The mere title of an employee will not determine whether the person is exempt for overtime purposes or eligible for overtime. The DOL Wage and Hour Division has issued a number of regulations which govern whether someone is exempt or not. You can research this a little on the internet, but then go and see an employment attorney near you to go over this. Make sure you keep track of your hours and turn a copy of the hours into the employer even if they say it doesn't matter.
