The best way to clarify your question is to meet with your supervisor or human resources. Many times employers place an hourly rate of pay on a salaried employee's pay stub for accounting purposes. Most likely from what you have written that is the case and if so, you do not get overtime assuming you are salaried and in some managerial position.
