The situation you are describing is commonly referred to as working "off the clock" without being paid. Employers sometimes do this to avoid paying employees what they are owed. I strongly recommend you contact an employment lawyer who handles "wage & hour claims." Indeed, you may be entitled to receive overtime wages which you are being cheated out of when the employer fails to pay you for time working off the clock.
