Request overtime

That pirate convention isn’t going to pay for itself. Ask for extra hours to save up for some spiffy souvenirs.

Overtime today or tomorrow? Try Grant the chatbot

Grant makes it easy to pick up some extra hours in the near future. (If you need overtime on days further out than tomorrow, skip to Check if your request is likely to be approved.)

A bell appears next to the Grant icon in the upper-right corner of the page if there’s wiggle room to make a short-term change in your schedule.

Or you might see this notification at the bottom of the page:

  • Click the Grant bot icon. A chat window opens in the lower-left corner of the page, and Grant checks to see if you can get some overtime. If you can, Grant guides you through the process.

To cancel the request, see Cancel a time-off request.
