You can only guess and give answer for 8 or 10 hour day.assuming 10 hour day 279300 28 employees times 9.5 hours (10 minus two 15 min breaks = 9.5 hours) times 150 times 7 so basically 28 employees x 9.5 hours x 150 units per hour x 7 days = 279300 units per weekUmmm— why would you use 7 days??? Especially if working 10 hour shifts... answer should be 159,600 (28 * 9.5) = 266 * 150 units = 39,900 * 4 (days at 10 hrs each)= 159,600

 There are two employees who carpool to work: one works for another manager, and one works for you.They are half an hour late one day. On their next paycheck, the employee working for the other manager gets paid for half an hour more than the employee who works for you. Your employee asks you why the other employee was paid and they were not.3 AnswersI would ask the other manager why he did what he did. If the issue was not resolved properly, I would escalate it to the next level of responsibility.I got asked the same questionI would find out what were the circumstances of the tardiness. Is someone sick was there a family emergency was this a preapproved tardiness.

 How would you approach another manager whose employee was able to get time reimbursed for being late (against company policy) while one of your employees wasn't reimbursed?2 AnswersI'd approach the manager about policy that Amazon has about tardiness and that it is extremely unfair and sends the wrong messages about whether or not it is okay to be tardy for work.I would ask about the circumstances surrounding the tardiness. Birth of child, hospital stay, accident, etc. are all immediate supervisor information that outside supervisors will not know. The tardiness could actually be excused. You have to get the facts surrounding the tardiness and not take it at the surface.

 Math flow question that is on here. 30 employees, 28 producing, how much can they produce in a week question1 Answermore than one way to answer this Q: Each AA works 37.5 hrs a week due to daily breaks during the 5 day work week. 28 of them work these hours b/c of the 2 off the floor. That gives 1050hrs worked per week. We know each person is doing 150 UPH each hour (given in problem) for 1050 hours in the work week -> 157,500 units per week output by the 28 AA team -- 37.5hrs/wk x 28AA x 1050 hrs/wk x 150 UPH = 157,500 U/wk ...other ways... 28 AA x 150 UPH x 7.5hrs/day x 5 days = 157,500 units/wk 7.5hrs/day x 28 AA x 5 days x 150UPH = '' 7.5 x 150 x 5 x 28 = '' really it's just the communicative rule in multiplication, any variance can work as long as the correct numbers are used

 When is it ever acceptable to violate a rule or regulation?1 AnswerRules and regulations have been developed to provide a safe working environment for the employees, and to provide the standardization necessary for an efficient business. A rule or regulation may need to be violated if the action being taken is to prevent injury to an employee, or damage to equipment. Doing so is a delicate balance call, that can be though through ahead of time, but depends significantly on the exact situation being encountered.
