How Much Do You Work?

Fri Mar 18, 2005 4:53 am

How many hours a week do you work?

At my job, I put in 45 hrs a week, then I come home and work on business development for about 2 hrs a day.

I'm curious to see how much the typical A.netter works each week.

Do you feel that you work too much, or not enough?

Job is 37.5 hours per week.

To be honest, any work is too much!  Silly

between actual time in the office, off site meetings and business development, i average between 65-70 hours each week.


actual time doing work however is probably around oh, 30-40 minutes per week.

25 hours school. 11 hours work one week, 17 in another (alternate weeks). My techers complain I do too much part time work, but I dunno whether I am or not.

Well, I am TECHNICALLY paid for 37.5 hours per week, but I don't know anyone in my office that actually does that. I'm usually in the office around 7.30am, and leave around 6.00pm, and sometimes on Saturdays for a few hours. I guess that's around 50 to 55 hours per week.

Is it too much? That answer depends on the mood I'm in I suppose.

I'm at school for between 20 and 35 hours per week, then I work 14 hours at weekends, but if overtime is available I will work for about 5 hours every night after school as well. Can be quite a long day, leaving my house at 08:00 and not getting back until 22:00.

Well, I generally come in at least fifteen minutes late, ah, I use the side door -that way Lumbergh can't see me, heh - after that I sorta space out for an hour.....I just stare at my desk, but it looks like I'm working. I do that for probably another hour after lunch too, I'd say in a given week I probably only do about fifteen minutes of real, actual, work.

:D

I work 35 hours per week, but looking for a second job, so it could increase by around 15-20 hours per week.

I work 40 hours a week then on the weekends I work one or two shifts in Buffalo at the Airport that are 8 hours each. Add on an hour plus drive each way and I end up working way to much.  Wink

Ya, sitting in traffic is a b*tch. I pretty much just zone-out until I see someone hit their brakes in front of me.

37.5hrs a week contracted, usually a couple of hours extra for TOIL. Sometimes I do overtime - usually when I have a heavy credit card bill, like now!!  headache 

But, I do as little as possible - it's time I started to enjoy life more. But don't tell my boss!  bigthumbsup

Actually I am pretty lucky. I live a couple miles away from teh Expressway which I take to I-90 with is a straight 85pmh shot to Buffalo and the Airport is only a couple miles off of the 90. Although, on Sundays during Bills home games when I am coming home around 4:40pm, the traffic is a bitch with all the Crapchestarians heading back east after the game.

Am supposed to work around 40 hours per week.

Am at my desk for about that time.

I don't know what is the actual work/procrastination time ration, though. (quite low, I would say)

My net work hours are far from demanding; however I travel all over Prague during the work week (to give English lessons, often in companies) and this often includes mornings and evenings. It would take me awhile to calculate the actual hours, however.

Since I retired from the Army where I worked nearly always, expecially when I was assigned to the 5 sided funny farm - Soddom on the Potomac - I work 2 weeks on shift and 2 weeks off shift - usually. They are 12-14 hour days, depending on the shift and they are 7 days a week. I quit trying to determine whether it is Monday or Wednesday or Sunday or whatever, since there really is no difference here at Prudhoe Bay . . . I simply call it 1 of 14, 2 of 14, 6 of 14, etc. In the summer with all the L-188 types and the tourists the hours get longer and the hitches are usually three weeks long with one week off. Shifts are Day: 5:30am - 6:30pm. Mids: Noon-Midnight Nights 5:30pm - 6:30am. I don't think I could every get back to a regular 40 hour work week, 4 weeks a month . . . that sucks. Besides, like I said, I'm already retired once . . . .  wink   yes

Monday-Friday, from 8AM to 5PM. I very rarely have to go in on weekends, although if they ask I will go in.

I guess you could say I work about the same amount as the average American.......oh wait, most of them dont work at all.  Yeah sure

Anyways, I'm taking off early today to catch the UNC game.  Wink

8-5 5 days a week in theory....but in reality i'm usually at work at 7am, take a 15min lunch and stay till 5:30 if i can be bothered at the end of the day. I should get 2 days off work but i go in on the tuesday to get things done and i go in on sundays (my other day off) to prepare for monday. So i work about 50 hours a week right now, but come May 1st i'll be doing around 64 hours a week.....all this just for a geenhouse/nursery operation!!!

Depends. A typical day starts at 730am and ends right about 5-530pm. Sometimes media production keeps you up and about until 1130pm, or sometimes even until 4am. Prepping, choreographing, or performing in a show does the same. It's a give or take situation. Good news is between school work, tv work, newspaper work, teaching work, I pretty much bounce back and forth between lots of places, lots of restaurants, Starbucks, computer labs in between.

Unless I'm doing a show I pretty much take Saturdays entirely off and Sunday afternoons, too. Spend Sunday nights doing planning and prep work since nothing is really on tv. I can always negotiate my schedule to get off vacation time and lots of personal time as necessary.

It's doing the shows that kill you. Show is at 8pm, depending on the show, you have to be there from 7pm-1130pm or what not. Matinees you pretty much have to be there at 1230pm, but you get a two hour break between the afternoon and evening show.

40 hours a week minimum in the glorious Labor and Delivery Dept OT is common since I often have to stay at a birth at the end of my shift to get all the data and record the birth.

Add in the hours spent moderating here on A.net and the two other "aviation" site I am a mod on and you end up with one tired oldtimer
