I put around average 90 hours on my job in a week. Our own business of software development. Regular schedule, Around 8 to 8:30 AM in the office and normally leave office around 12:00 mid night or 1:00 AM. On Saturday normally make half day, leave office around 4:30 pm as I have to fly on that day. On Sunday (Holiday) normally starts my work 10:00 AM till 8:00 to 9:00 PM night.

Very tough

Now just leaving office little bit early at 11:15 PM.


What's your schedule???

At the moment, I put in the bare minimum that I can, considering it is so boring and I have no interest in it whatsoever. So basically, about 39 hours a week, Monday to Friday 0900-1730.

In my previous role, it was closer to 60 hour weeks, with weekends and bank holidays all being normal working hours.  Sad


PS You are working WAY TOO MUCH IMHO. Doesn't sound healthy.

I am another one of these 09:00-17:30 people. (Mon-Fri)  Sleepy

I hate work, but it pays the bills.

Mark, me too. Monday to Friday, 09h00-17h30. It used to be much more, but ever since I stopped caring, it's become the bare minimum required, if that. I do go in late sometimes and out early other times! And I don't do weekends or bank holidays anymore. My new quest is to finally use up all my paid leave this year, because it lapses every March and I can't carry forward. And that's exactly what I'm doing now. Took the whole week off!

Yes, 90 hours -- WAY TOO MUCH... he must be a workalcoholic.

I, for your information, feel sorry for workalcoholics. They just beat themselves up over and over.. A friend of mine died of heart attack -- more likely because he was a "workalcoholic" -- he was only 47 years old.

Between 45-55 generally. Gets me about 10 hours of overtime on average, which is nice (time and a half).

We just went back to Fall/Winter hours... which means 8:00 am to 4:30 pm when the main office shuts down. I usually get in around 9, sometimes 8:45ish if I am being good. Some people come in later than me too. Now that school is almost back in session I'll be putting in some evenings and weekend time too. Thankfully my schedule is pretty flexible and I do not have to punch a clock.

And I am taking Friday off b/c my supervisor ordered me to take some time off before classes start on the 30th.

Usually, I end the week with something around 45 hours - plus/minus 5 hours...

I usually arrive at the office between 8:40 and 8:50, I normally leave between 18:30 and 19:00...

0830 - 1700 Mon-Thurs.

0900 - 1700 Fri.

Suits me fine. I used to do Saturdays and tues and weds evenings but we got extra staff.

It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.

Right now: 0 (unemployed). When I was working, it was between 35 (which is what I was actually paid for) to about 80 hours at most. Averaging around 55.

I try to put as many hours in as I can. But only because I love my job Big grin

Some weeks I work both my days off on top of staying late. When I try I can get to between 70-80hours a week, which actually pays about 120hours worth Big grin

I did about 55 hours in 4 days last week. Not done that since I left Bmi 3 years ago - used to do that regularly back then.

The Minimum I am suppose to do is 40 hours, but since I work for the Region/City we are considered essential service, so it never is 40 hours, I have worked like 80 hours a week once but its mostly 50 to 55 hours. I hate it. Today I got home just to get called back into work to drive a huge truck to float a machine over (13 hour day). Can't wait until October, then I am done.

About 40 hours. Use to do up to 60 in the past, but got different priorities now (family).

By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Dear All

I am not work-alcoholic as I almost averaging spending 90+ hours. There is a problem that we are almost on finals on establishing our own business of IT consultancy and we have almost on final finishing of a mid range business application software. The project, which we have started to develop a mid-range ERP solution has become too big, too big than our expectation, so we have to complete the project.

Hopefully, we will be competing top ERP software within couple of years.

A minimum of 40 hours and a maximum (when important presentations or final reports are due) of 55 hours not counting travel times. An average week will see me in the office for about 40-45 hours net.

I would say about60-65 hours a week.

But I spend most of the time at work on A.net because there is absolutly nothing to do at all.
