I work at least 40 a week and I’m salary.  I probably should be working more but with the wedding planning I feel like I’m working TWO full time jobs!!

We both work 40 hours a week… I work a 9/80 schedule so I work 9 hour days and have every other Friday off, which is great to meet with wedding vendors!

Right now I’m almost at 40 hours a week (part-time university worker paid bi-weekly). I’m between internships and am able to pick up a lot of hours. Once school starts, it’ll be more around 30 hours. The internships are killing my bank account though. 40 hours a week with NO pay and no way to hold a job around the crazy scheduling. Good thing they’re only 1 month a piece!

I work approximately 53 hours a week, (give or take), and I’m salaried.

I work 40 hours a week and get paid… NOT AT ALL.

I’m interning for the summer, and I guess I could have chosen to stay home and do nothing for the nothing I get paid, but hopefully someday this will translate into increased earning potential. 😉

As a business owner, I work anywhere from 30 hours to 60 hours a week. I don’t really keep track. I come and go as I please, but I work silly hours. I’m at work right now (1130pm) and I’ll be back here in probably 5 hours. I get a salary, but I am ridiculously underpaid lol. 

I also teach yoga 2-4 nights a week & for that I get paid per class (depends on number of students + hourly wage).

I’m salaried, and the amount of time I spend working varies dramatically, though rarely below 40.  but if you add up all the time I spend in airports it’s way more on average.

Fiance is also salaried, and typically works about 60-ish.

The job I get paid for is hourly – forty hours a week. My guy works 60+ per and is salary.

 I’m guessing our other "job" doesn’t count – being parents is 24/7 year-round for the rest of our lives – we mostly get paid in hugs & kisses 🙂

I work 40+ hours a week. At one job, I’m full time salary paid, and I used to hit the 40 mark but now that my summer camp has begun, I’ve been pulling at least 50 hours a week (and I don’t get OT pay, just have to find a day to take my comp time). My other job is one day a week, so it’s an 8 hour supplement.

My Fiance works 20 hours a week at an hourly PT job. I wish they would give him FT already!

I work roughly 60 hours a week, salaried (but bonuses are based off hours billed…).  Fiance works about 90 hours a week (he is a surgical resident…the law says he can work 80 but no hospitals adhere to this around here so he ends up working betgween 80-100).  He’s also salaried.

We have no lives!!

I work 40/week, and am paid hourly.  My days off are lame though, because where I work is open 7 days/week.  Yay for the 4th of July coming up, because we get double time =)

 The FH works 40/week as well, but is salaried and works 9 hr days and gets every other Friday off.

I’m in my office for about 45 hours/week, but I’m always going to meetings/functions after work, so it ends up being way more than that. I also have a bberry and am constantly working after hours if you count that (Salary). The Fiance has the same situation, although he spends more time in the office than I do. It works out really well because we work in the same building (for different companies) so he’ll get in a lot earlier than me (which frees up the bathroom) and we can go to lunch together, etc.
