I used too work:

Mon tues thurs fri 7 am-3pm then 8pm to 11pm

Wed and Sunday 7am-3pm

Basically in between my 3-8 I had time to pick my daughter up from school, get home do homework spend time with her make dinner and go back to work.

Then I got pregnant with my son. I went off work at 22w with complications.  I went back to work when he was 1. I now work 8 hours a week..lol. 3-7 2 days. I’m in retail, my boss will give me whatever hours I want and switch everyone up to accommodate me. I also work across the street from my house. I am only working now to get out of the house. But it’s a huge change from what I used to work.

I’m a teacher. According to some people, teachers work 8:30-3:30pm. Ha! 7:30-5pm for me with a lot of late nights and a few hours on weekends during report writing time.

I used to work full time from 1.30 pm till 9.30 pm. After some company changes, some health issues and a baby, I switched to part time just to still have some adult interaction. Now I work 3.30 pm to 7.45 pm Monday to Thursday and 3.00 pm to 7.15pm on Fridays. I’m pregnant with my second baby and my toddler will start preschool at the end of the year so I’m thinking of switching to work in the mornings when she’s at school or be a Stay-At-Home Mom, at least for a couple of years.

5am-1:30pm M-F

40 hrs a week essentially. Plus an additional 24 hours a week with school. So 64 hours a week.

my hours are flexible. I usually get to office at 10 -10:30 am until 6 or 6:30 M-F , lunch at the desk. Sometimes I work in the morning 7 – 8 am while having breakfast at home because we work with Europe and hence time difference. 

I used to work 10 – 14 hour days M-F but those times are over.

My official work hours are 8:30-4:30 Monday-Friday.  My office hours are 9-4.  I usually start anywhere between 8 and 9am and leave anywhere between 4 and 5pm.  This unofficial flexibilty really helps as my commute is a bit longer on public transit.  I come in on a Saturday for a few hours maybe a handful of times a year.  I occasionally work overtime, but it is pretty rare.  My boss is generally flexible and reasonable and lets me make up time rather than using PTO from time to time.  For example, he will let me take off a weekday and make it up on a Saturday occasionally.  I also have decent vacation and sick time.  I am glad to have a job that is generally 40 hours a week.

I am an in-house attorney for a large corporation.  Exempt, salaried employee.  Rigid hours. Rarely ever am able to take a lunch.  I spend 99% of my lunches at my desk.  No flex time or working from home permitted.  I hate it.  Generally speaking, I work from 8a – 6pm ish.  Sometimes I come in a little earlier or slightly later depending on what’s going on in my cases.

I come in between 8:30-9:30 (depending on morning meetings/workload) and leave between 5:30-6:00 usually.  I sometimes do an hour or two of work over the weekend or in the evenings but I try to leave work at work as much as I can for my sanity (gov’t attorney).  I technically get an hour for lunch but I usually eat at my desk unless I need to run an errand.

I work Mon-Thurs 7-4:30 and Friday from 7-11.  I LOVE having my Friday afternoons off.  I usually do a bunch of housework so I can relax on the weekend.

I work 8-6 Monday through Thursday. I bargained for 4 10-hr days after coming back from maternity leave. It’s easier for me. I work 2 days from home to save on commute time. But we are super flexible. If I can’t work 10 hrs one day, I can work some on Friday, etc, and can also change up the days I work from home. It goes both ways though.. if they ask me to come in on my work-from-home day, I am flexible too. Basically as long as I bill 40 hours a week, I am good.
