If I’m working remotely, hourly is more common. But on-site, I usually use a day rate and work a 8-10 house day. Over 10 hours and I add an extra half day.

like

SC 1 - day rates are still based on hours. Use that to your advantage and shoot for an 8 hour day rate. 8-12 hours is OT and 12 hrs + isDT

How do you guys get paid hourly?? I always get asked for day rate in NYC.

Yeah some agencies allow hourly, some do dayrates. A dayrate is just a convenient way for them to cap their costs / pay you less. Avoid whenever possible. And for the love of god, never do a weekly rate. Just don’t. I hear Chicago loves weeklies

Day rates are a thing in Chicago, too... Burnett and Havas. But other agencies tend to be hourly.

Additional Posts (overall)

After 5 years of freelancing (which I have loved) I am considering a full-time gig. Although COVID is in the back of my mind, this is more about what I’ve been lacking since FL: consistent team, seeing an idea all the way through, challenging myself to grow, being exposed to latest tech trends to better my ideas... I know I can always go back to FL if FT doesn’t work out, but curious where others’ heads are at these days. Am I crazy to consider going back to the golden shackles?
