40 HRS- 4 10'S with alternate 2 and 4 day weekends. Big%20Smile I usually don't work overtime except during our annual 2 week outage or unless there is an emergency.

The only thing consistent with my work schedule, is inconsistency. Whacko
 
I try to shoot for 9 hours a day, UNLESS I've got a big concrete pour to ram rod, then it's more like 13-15 hours a day.
45 hours a week minimum, most weeks are around 50 or better.

Is the question how many hours I actually work or how many hours I'm "AT" work? Loco

  Never work less than 40, usually 50 or so.  We're pretty busy now, around 58-64 the last month or so.

 I work in a structural steel shop, with an adjoining shop "sister company" that manufactures tillage equipment for farmers. The welders in that shop have been putting in 66 hours a week since last September with no end in sight.  The demand for ethanol and the resulting high corn prices have demand for agricultural tillage tools absolutely soaring.

Like RifleDude's take.
 
Now that I am "retired"  I am at work for 40 hrs per week.  With luck only "work" 20 or less!
 
Retirement has not turned out like I planned - damn my misspent youth.

At my day job I work a normal 40 with over time from time to time. Next week I will have 70 hours in a 40 hours week. I’ll be graduating 2,100 students at the Ga Dome so it gets to be long hours.

Then I work at the gun shop 5 hours a night usually 8pm to 1 pm and sleep 3 or 4 hours and back to my day job again at 5am.

 

Now for side work I do streamers and flags at car dealer ship with an uncle, Do some light electrical work mainly changing out light fixtures and chandlers in the rich part of the neighborhood.

 

When I’m not doing anything else and traveling I have a few friends that own the own companies so I try to work them up new business, But I do this for free I just enjoy meet all the people while doing it.

 

With all of this I still sit down with my wife and boys and have dinner at the dinner table and to my chores around the house.

 

I don’t think I do to bad to be so dang lazy.

I work 50 hours a week, or so.  Not all of these are in the office: I can do some stuff at home.

 I have had schedules like that since I was 15. I would go to school then go to football/wrestling/baseball then to work untill am hours then home and back at it again.

Its getting harder to do as I get older.If is sit still for to long I fall asleep.So I'm always on the go.Most people don't get me because i'm high strung and wide open all the time.

48 hrs/ week at the real job. 4 12hr nights 6pm to 6am. 4 on 4 off. This would be great for time off if it wasn't for the construction on the days off. My dad owns a business as a general contractor, so I make for great slave labor. I usually get another 48 in there. The weather has kept that stalled so far this year. I was due for a break anyway.

Unless you're getting OT pay (which most of you don't from the sounds of it), your hourly wage is probably at the poverty level!  Hope the bosses appreciate you!
 
... damn hard to buy ammo, scopes or new guns with appreciation though

I work at least 40 hrs but it usually takes about 15 min to change shifts before and after that so sometimes I get a couple of hours overtime and sometimes I get screwed out of the overtime.  State job but the boss is a Federal Tech  (strange deal).
