So, I know that we don't get paid overtime, but my hiring manager said something about how since it's a seasonal job we still get paid for more hours. How many hours per week are actually paid for and how many are just wasted time?
You will get paid for how many how per week you worked. Many times, it will be over 40 hours. (Meaning, if you work 43.5 hours in a week, you will get paid for 43.5 hours for that week). Hours vary between departments and throughout the summer. In the beginning of the summer and at the end (low staffing), you will more hours than peak season. Don't worry, they won't quit paying you after hitting 40 hours per week.
Yes, you will get paid the rate on your job offer for all hours worked. For example in 2015 I averaged around 50 hours a week, and got paid for 50 hours a week. In 2016, I averaged around 50-60 hours a week, depending on the time of season, and got paid for 50-60 hours a week.

The above statements are not 100% accurate. Some seasonal positions do get overtime. I think that all the union trades seasonal workers get OT. The ones in our division do...
