I have to do a long week (50-60 hours) about once a month, but I get directly paid for it. Also, the duties that require the long hours are usually technical challenges which are the fun part of my job. Personally I wouldn't want a purely salaried job that required regular overtime unless it was already built into my pay (ie: making > 100K) and I draw that line as a 24 year old with no family obligations. If they can't be reasonable, find a different job.
