Just curious. I currently work 30-40 hours per week at one job, but recently accepted another full time position. I really like my current job and we worked out a part-time schedule where I could still work 10 hours a week or so, mostly on the weekends.
Does anyone else have a similar arrangement? My new job is salaried and isn’t as flexible, so I would definitely be working 40 hours per week. I am sure LOTS of people work 45+ hours, but I wondered if it was different to split it up over two different places.

I work 25 hours a week at one university and then 15 hours a week at another. I love it because it splits up my day/week and get different benefits from each job.

I work 2-3 12 hr shifts a week at a hospital and the other days of the week I substitute teach. I like the flexibility of working two very different jobs. it averages out to about 50 hrs a week.

I work during the day, your typical 40 hours a week and then at night (like right now) on some evenings I work at a second job when they need relief technicians. I average between 48-70 hours per week depending on who wants a day off. Usually I end up at about 60 hours though. Ill admit though, it is tough. Im more moody and my Fiance and I dont get to spend as much time together. But basically all the money I make at my 2nd job goes straight into our funds for saving a down payment and its nice to see that we are making some headway.

I was working 50-60 hours a week with two jobs, and couldn’t handle it (40 hours at one 10-15 at another). Now I work 2 days at one job, 4 days at another, for right aorund 40-43 hours a week. In March though, I’ll be working 45 hours regularly until May after my wedding, and then I’ll be able to quit one job and just work at one job for the summer.
I work at a party rental company (chaircovers, linens, tables, tents, fountains, etc) and in the office for a wedding photographer (as well as a sceond shooter on weekends in summer) Great jobs to have when your getting married, but both quite stressful.
Good luck with your new job OP, it can be rough!

I attend school full-time, work at Staples part-time (10-20 hours per week), and work casual at the hospital (usually about 1-2 shifts per month; I’d work more, but they usually don’t fit into my schedule).

I used to until come tax time I would owe the govenment money because I wasn’t paying enough into income tax. Partime jobs don’t take off enough income tax so it really wasn’t worth it.

I do. I work as a grad student and I work two jobs as a research scientist.

Fiance and I both work full time 40hr/week jobs, but Fiance recently got hired part-time with local EMS. He’ll be working about two 24-hour shifts a month on the weekends. He loves it, so I’m happy. With wedding planning and grad school, I SHOULD be working a second job but I really don’t think I could fit it in (or handle it). But I did recently join a tutoring website service so hopefully I can do some editing and writing/vocab/etc tutoring in the area on the side.

technically speaking I work 4 dfferent jobs, I am a PE teacher during the week….technically its full time, just at 4 different schools, and in different towns, on top of that I work at a shoe store during the weekends, and as a Physical Education Director at a summer camp during the summer. On average I work anywhere from 40-70 hr work weeks.
You can imagine my disapointment when I did taxes, I learned that on top of all my jobs I don’t even make the average starting teachers salery…:-(, and I’ve been teaching for 4 years.

Luckkily I no longer do, but did for years. I worked an office job from 730- 430 and then a bartending job from 6 to 2, 2 nights a week and then Sunday Brunch.
I would go home real quick between jobs for something to eat or drive directly to the job and sleep in my car and set my phone as an alarm. I did a lot of sleeping in my car those days because on the days I wasnt working I was going to grad school as well 2 nights a week and Saturdays. Can you say no life? I used lunch breaks for school work and every spare waking moment.
Its about being efficient about EVERYTHING when you are really busy.

I work about 40 hours a week, but I have 3 different jobs. One’s freelance artist, one’s a part-time job for the family business, and one’s illustrating for a guy who’s only in town every few weeks, so I only do that work when he’s around. I like the flexibility of doing different things.

I work three jobs, but it’s not so bad. I work 40 hours with a contract position checking legal documents for a company. It’s not a firm schedule so I can schedule it around my independent cases and trial schedule. One day on the weekend usually Sunday mornings I tutor my two nephews. All in all I probably work about 60-65 hours a week. It’s not so bad because whenever I am feeling overwhelmed I can always refuse new clients or organize my work schedule to take some time off.
