    How many hours do you spend per week at work? It's 40 for me, at 8 hours each day. 7 hours of working and 1 hour of paid break period. I decline and any all overtime.

    I figure we have plenty of foreigners here and it'd be interesting to hear how many hours they work per week when compared to the American posters.

    40. I'm American. True story though, our dumbshit managers tried to implement a workload tracking system in our unit, which was dependent on each individual employee entering the amount of time they worked on each task. It was really a way for them to manufacture praise for some of the employees who didn't do shit, but were pets of the managers. One of the managers entered more hours than would have been possible to work in order to make herself look good. I think she had like 400 hours logged for the month. Keep in mind it's a 5 day work week.

    Reminds me of an old lawyer joke.

    So this lawyer gets to the pearly gates, and he's really irate. "What's this silly business, 'm only 35 years old, how is this fair?"

    And St Peter goes, "Hmmm, well, let's see, judging by your billable hours, says here you're 107."

    Between 10 and 60. I'm primarily a student, but I do woodwork on the side. When school is slow, I work tons. When it's the busy season, I just do small jobs for friends.

    Woodwork is slang for handjobs.

    Four 12 hour shifts, 4 days off. The days off are at another job. I'm poorer than poor.

    I work for a very particular company doing odd jobs for about 25 residential properties. I'm not a full time carpenter, nor really a professional, but I function as one for this one company.

    This week 60. Last week 84. The week before 52. I work rotating shift work (12 hr shifts) and when possible I take extra shifts. Double time pay is nice. The fewest hours I will work in a week is 36.
