    I work four straight ten hour days, 7AM to 5PM. Usually 10 hours O.T. (time and one half) on the fifth day.

    Officially, my hours are from 8am - 5pm. However, depending on traffic, I usually get there around 7:30am and don't leave until 6pm. We get one hour for lunch, which I rarely take because I carpool and don't usually have a way to leave. (I'd rather eat at my desk than in the lunchroom.) I usually work 4-5 hours on Saturday at least two Saturday's a month.

    However, my pay, and bonus potential, are very much worth it. Not to mention 18 days of personal time a year (vacation and sick time). And almost all major holidays off with pay. That includes not only Thanksgiving but the day after as well, and Christmas Eve and Christmas.

    About 40 hours a week regular job (9-5'ish) and then I can easily do another 10-20 hours on my own stuff.

    Holidays? Unpaid ... so I try not to take too many (it seems like they cost you double 'cause you have to pay for the holiday and don't earn while you are away).

    i don't work set hours really, so i don't feel the difference between work and not work, week or weekend, it's all mushed together. sort of like being on call, no matter what time or day it is, i never switch off.
