I’m an analyst for a federal agency. My hours are 7:30am – 5pm M-Th, 7:30-4 the first Friday of our two week pay period, and the second Friday off. I also work from home Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays (my office is transitioning to a mobile work environment and I love it).

I’m the Director at a small public library. I usually work about 830 to 430 Monday to Friday. I don’t have to, though. As long as every month or so it washes out at 70 hours a week I’m good.

Vet tech/nurse currently working at a vet clinic 4 weekdays 8-7pm and every 3rd weekend. 8-4pm it sucks because Fiance works 1-9pm so we don’t get a lot of time together.

Allthatglitters07:  I work in IT for a large retail company (not a big box store). i need to be physically at work depending on my meeting scheduled. 90% of what I do is in a meeting. So 7am-6pm is fair game.  I may arrive anytime between 6:30am-8:45am. And I may leave anytime between 4:15pm-6:30pm.  Usually it works out to about  a 45 hour week but I have worked many 60 hour weeks and a few 30-35 ones (usually due to a mid day personal appointment). No one is watching my time. I just put in the time needed to get my job done.  And often weeks that are getting high in hours involve work I’ve taken home. I will only work 3-4 50+ hour weeks before having a conversation about priorities and workload. If those weeks are occurring often, people above me are not planning well and need to make some adjustments.

Allthatglitters07:  I am a Pediatric Oncologist and I work 8AM-4PM Monday through Friday.


Occasionally I have to travel to hospitals that are far away or I have to perform surgeries that operate outside of my “hours of business”. Sometimes I do not have patients in the morning or in the afternoon and I can fluctuate my presence in my practice accordingly. It’s pleasant.

I work on the digital team for an international skincare company. My hours are Mon, Tues, Thurs & Fri 9am-6pm.

I love working there! Pay and benefits are good, coworkers are nice and I LOVE the free products and having Wednesdays off!

I will be moving to Miami in June, so who knows what I will be doing or the hours I will be working.

I work from home as a customer service rep with a large clothing company answering emails, doing live chat inquiries and taking customer’s phone orders. My hours vary week to week based on how busy it is with promotional offers.

I work as a software account manager but due to my husband’s job, I now work from home…so I kind of make my own hours. I’m supposed to be a 9-5, but I’m always changing my schedule. Sometimes I’m online at 7am and logged off by 3, sometimes I don’t log on until 10am and I sign off at 6 or 7pm. I’m always honest with hours worked, but they flex – I kind of love it. 🙂

I volunteer (volunteer work is still work, I do the same work as I would do if I was in the same position but paid) one day a fortnight for a charity that specialises in helping disadvantaged children, particularly in terms of education. I work there from 9.30am until about 3.30pm, but I sometimes leave earlier or later depending mainly on when the mail goes out and also the workload. I used to volunteer every week but cut back recently due to my education load.

I currently study at university part-time, with an outside course (tax course with a tax firm) on Saturday mornings. The total workload, including class time, that I do for that is about 15-20 hours, but I should be spending 30+ hours including class time.

ETA: This tax course should lead to employment with the firm hopefully, but if it doesn’t it will be the time larger firms are hiring for tax season anyway! So once it is done I will be able to get paid employment finally, at least that’s the plan!

I currently work in sales doing 20 hours a week over three days. I occasionally do an extra day. It’s just temporary whilst I sort some issues out. I’m actually a nurse so I’m used to doing three or four 12.5 hour shifts in hospital a week, either from 7.30-20.00 or 19.30-08.00. I’m looking at going into clinic and doing Monday-Friday 9.00-17.00.

I work in logistics and I have a very flexible work schedule that allows me to leave when needed or if i don’t have meetings. I do a lot of work on the go and spend at least 80% of my time in the office. Typical week is 9am-4pm in the office
