Hours per week at work?
 
Like the title says, just curious to how many hours per week you guys work..?
I just started a new job a bottling company.. After 3 days I'm sitting just over 40..

I work right around 40 hours per week. Overtime is frowned upon as a general rule. We run 24/7 and handing over to the next shift is highly encouraged. But I sure have noticed many of you all work outrageous amounts of hours per week.

50-55+ hours per week. I work 10 hour days Monday-Friday and half a day on Saturday sometimes.

I'm in textile recycling . We work 4 10 hour shifts , have off every Fri-Sat-Sun. Work hours are 6am to 4pm . I have to be in at 5 am to open building. Love my job & the hours. Mickey

Worst ever was as an attorney for the Office of Chief Counsel - I had a couple 60+ hour workDAYS at that one. Yes, that was 60+ hour days - as in 60 hours straight with no sleep (praise the coffee machine). Average work week was often around 100-120 hours but it would sometimes run up around 128-130 hours in a week. Now, I try to stick with something more reasonable - like 85-95 hours per week.

Im a self employed electrician so I only get paid the hours I put in. I've had 30 hour weeks and I've had 80 hour weeks. I am either buried or slow there never seems to be a middle ground

The last three to four years I average 70 to 80 hours per week. Self employed attorney also and only get paid when I do work! Wouldn't have it any other way!

Anywhere from 37.5 to 60+, nobody ever says poo about my overtime, they just keep telling me to do more! I will have 15+ this week alone. I also have a small business that can add another 20 to 30 hours. I blog on here about 10 hours a week but that pays like crap!

Sadly, Ive never earned more than I do today but I seem to have less to show for it every paycheck in spite of that...

Salaried. Some weeks 30 hours, some weeks 60. I set my schedule- and as long as the work is taken car of, boss does not care. When traveling, longer days than others- but it averages out to about 45 a week.

Longest hours? Company Commander, Basic Training Company. You were there when the troops rolled out of the rack, there when you tucked them in at night. 6 months of that is approaching burnout.
