How many hours a week do you work? - Page 2

post #16 of 78
About 55 hours a week, including a halfday on a weekend.  Of course, in academia, "work" is a malleable term. I also do suplemental work, for which I am not paid directly. I's hard work; but I love the perks. Pimpin' ain't easy.

40 hours at work, plus a good 20+ hours for school every week. I still find some time to socialize, really depends on my school workload (don't want to dip below a 3.8 GPA). Jon.

I average between 45-50 hours a week in the office. More certain times of the year. I also do another 5-10 hours of work on the train, at home etc.

My friend told me (he worked in the U.S for 10 years) that Americans work longer hours because they don't work as intensely as we aussies do. He said that Americans like to socialise at work, therefore have to work longer hours to get the same amount of work done. He said that it takes Americans 10 hours to do 8 nhours work because of the socialising factor. Whereas Aussies just work flat out and finish the work in less time.
having worked in a few countries, I think that there is some truth in that. I keep it to about 55 or so. I used to do better than 70 on average, but I was pretty crazy then. I have had really crazy periods in my life when I worked harder. 2-3 times a year I'll be at a trade show where I do a 16 hour day for set up, then 4-6 12 hour days selling, 2 hours a day in transit, and maybe 4-6 hours drinking and eating with customers, then 8-12 hours folding up. that can be a really tough week. I try to get up and on the phone and computer by 5 30 am,  and then get home before 6 pm, with only half an hour or so after I get home on the phone and email. and between 5 am and 6 pm, I will get to the gym and have lunch, so it isn't all work. oh, and I do it cause I like my work, and I have a family to feed, and a future to worry about, and I have certain goals, both personal and career wise that I want to hit.

As a freelancer, it varies wildly. When there's not a lot of stuff in the pipeline, I have a lot of free time to screw around. But if I'm busy, then I'm at the computer 12+ hrs a day, as I tend to just immerse myself in a project until it's finished and rarely come up for air. Days, nights, weekends - it's all the same...

With all due respect, why do some of you work so much? I could understand if you were doing something that furthered your own interests beyond accumulating money to purchase high-line luxury items. If you were doing something that was a legitimate interest or furthered some cause.
Quite the opposite, actually. I work in advertising. I work so much because I have a very demanding client with a decent budget, and because my agency is severely understaffed. Simple as that, really.

Personally I am willing to work an incredible amount when necessary, but to work more the 60-70 hours a week on a consistent basis tells me you are either desperate for cash or you are a very boring person.
I work 40 hours a week at Depot and another 30-35 hours delivering pizza. I'd like to think I'm desperate for cash, not boring.

How much do you make for one pizza ?

Ernest - I make $7.35 an hour delivering pizza base pay, and 80 cents a delivery for mileage, plus tips. Yeah Home Depot. You've heard of it? Heh.

On average I work 17 hours a day (not including driving) I work between 3 and 7 days a week, depending on the amount of work I have So if we average that as 4.5 days a week I work (on average) 76.5 hours a week. The most I have ever worked is 3 straight 24 hour shifts, i.e. 72 hours straight. The UK average is 40 hours The French and Italian averages are a little less I think. I think the Swiss and German averages are higher
How can someone who works 17h per day have time and desire to post 15 messages per day on a forum talking about clothes? working 72h without sleeping = impossible
