    How many hours a week do you work? I just wanted to start a general thread about this. I currently work 35 hours a week which (in the UK) is considered to be part time. I am considering increasing my hours to full time which is 40 hours a week.

    My daily commute is 30 minutes there and back. So 40 hours plus 5 hours will equal 45 hours.

    What about you?

    Well over 40 on a salary. Then again I spend plenty of time on the web so hard to say how it balances out :p

    I should also add that I get 31.5 days annual leave a year and the availability to work extra hours to take off as "flexi leave".

    Four ten hour days (one hour for lunch break or overtime if I work through it.
    Work at least one day, usually two, sometimes three days for overtime. Takes 30 minutes to get to work.

    Can people please include travel time as (to me) I think as soon as you leave your home for work, you're "at work"!...

    I'm on four tens as well. Well I am when I don't get called in early. I'm at the point where I am in a love hate relationship with it. I work two days and get a day off then work two more days and have the weekend off. The only bad thing is that I'm at work for what seems like all day.

    ETA Travel time is about 7-10 minutes via freeway. Finding a parking spot that I pay $100 month for is another 10(on good days)-30+ minutes on bad days.

    ETA 2 The best part of the four 10's is having a day off during the week to do things that others would need time off fo or use the weekends for. Appointments/trips to the range.

    Me too. But I'm lucky. Most people work one weekend day. I have them both plus wed off.

    LOL we work the same days. I used to do all 4 in a row. The first day off was let me veg and recover from the past four days, so it was like I only had two days off.

    As much as I want or as little as I want. I generally work 40-70 hours a week spread. I also get to decide what my salary is, so there's that benefit, too.

    too many.

    Seriously, i'm probably pushing about 55 - 60, not including the 30 minute commute each way. :(

    Hourly or salary? If salary do you feel fairly compensated?

    Salaried. right now, I'd say no. I'm basically filling 2 additional roles including my own that the company doesn't want to backfill. It's job security, but at the cost of time with family.

    Monetarily, I would say no, but I've already peaked at my profession, especially if you track it with the Bureau of Labor and Statistic's 45-year plan. :(

    BL.

    Think of it this way. If your in laws lost their house due to disaster, you could easily avoid them most days of the week.
