    I work full time, strictly 40 hours.  We are not allowed to work more than that, because the company won’t pay overtime.

    FI works 40 hours most weeks, but lately he has been doing 4 hours OT a week to pay for the honeymoon.  It’s optional for him, though.

    ETA: I am an admin at a utilities company, and FI is a machinist.

    I average about 45-50 hrs a week.  Sometimes its more, sometimes its less.

    I’m salary, too. So no overtime!  Although, my boss is pretty flexible with me coming in later when I had a long day the day before.

    I’m a salaried engineer (a.k.a no overtime pay) and I work 10-12+ hours a day, five days a week, plus get called in on weekends (oh the joys of working in manufacturing!!)… the future hubs is a mechanic at the same place, isn’t salaried (yay overtime pay!), and works 11-14 hours a day five days a week, plus gets called in on weekends.

    c’est la vie.

    As little as possible. I’m self-employed for now and I can usually only manage about 25-30 hours before I feel overworked:)

    I answered 50-60+. I am a school nurse full time at about 38 hrs. Then I work anywhere between 5-15 hrs for my per diem home care job. Now, I work around 10 hrs/week seasonally at a flu clinic. The amount of hours does suck but right now I see $$$ to save.

    As little as we can possibly afford 😀 I work from home and I’d much rather be doing other things haha! No, but seriously, probably 25 hours a week.

    45+ depending on the week. I’m in salaried and in IT so I’m always on call and work on many things afterhours. Often times it’s more, very rarely is it less.

    I’m currently doing about 15-20, because it’s an intern position and I can only work if they have work for me to do. It sucks, but it happens.

    I work 36 hrs a week. 3 12s, but 36 hrs is considered full time.

    Honestly I think 40 hours a week is the average, at least everywhere near me, because most companies have policies in place that don’t allow workers to go into overtime. Neither of my parents can work more than 40 hours a week, and although I’m still part time and in college, every job I’ve ever had has had people working “full time” alongside me and they usually worked about 30-40 hours and couldn’t go over.
