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.

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.

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.

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.
