How to use the 12-hour shift pay calculator?

Our user-friendly tool was created to help you calculate overtime pay during 12-hour shifts. You need to fill in only three boxes, and the formula will calculate your wage for one shift and project your salary for an entire week, month, or year of working long hours.

Those three boxes are:

  • Hourly wage — Input your normal, hourly wage. The calculator will adjust the currency to your location.
  • Regular hours — Input the number of work hours in a day eligible for the normal wage. Eight hours is the default value, but you can change it to make calculations appropriate to your situation.
  • Overtime hourly wage — Input your overtime wage. Usually, it's 1.5x the normal wage. For example, if you earn $10 an hour, your overtime wage would be $15 an hour.

⚠️ Please remember that having a negative hourly wage or work hours is impossible. The 12-hour shift pay calculator only accepts positive numbers as inputs.
