Officially - 8 - 445.

But I am there from 715 - 445 each day, and 2 - 3 days a week I am there from 715a - 730p or later.

I work M-F from 8:15 - 6:00. Sometimes I'm lucky enough to get a break, sometimes I'm just too busy. Sometimes I also put in another 1 - 2 hours from home.

"Normal" hours are 8-5. I do get stuck here on occasion, but most of the time leave at a reasonable time. If I'm busy, I'll start coming in at 7, and/or working through lunch. If it's real busy, I'll come in at 6, or even 5. And if that's still not enough, I'll come in on the weekend. Oddly enough, when I work 5-5, the day doesn't seem much longer than when I work 8-5. OTOH, when I end up staying way late, the day seems REAL long.

DW works 7:15-2:15 at the school & plays on her Ipad in the car until the kids get out at 3:00. Although, she's currently training a new person & hasn't been leaving until at least 4:00.

I worked 2nd shift (3:30-midnight when on 8 hours) and loved it for many years. It does NOT however work for me now that I'm married, and especially now that I have kids. I had to do it for a couple months when my oldest was 2 & it was a real hassle.

What do I want to work? Official schedule is 7am - 3pm. I'm hourly and don't have to follow schedule. Production folks can't punch the clock until 7 minutes til and are auto punched by 7 minutes after shift if they don't punch. I am on open punch. Generally I get there at 6:30 and leave anytime from 3 to 4. I am a 1 man crew and work by myself with they guy that schedules my projects. I have about 20 bosses though from the engineering staff to the sales staff to the manufacturing staff. I love the freedom I have because my actual boss will ask us to have a meeting so we can get him up to speed on what has been going on rather than he telling us what to do.

What I really should do is what everyone else does. I wake up, eat breakfast, do the business (that's the important part as seen next...), grab a shower, and leave. Get there at 6:30. I should wait and "do the business" at work, thus doing it on company time netting an extra half hour to 45 minutes of overtime. Everyone else gets paid for doing their "business", I may as well too.

I go in around 6:30 a.m. (today it was 5 a.m. - wow, did I enjoy my "quiet" time!) and typically leave around 5:45-6 p.m.

I like where I work and I usually like my job, so I'm ok with the hours. When I put in more I do tend to get STRESSED. And if I go more than 2 days without a lunch break, I get pretty cranky.

The 8-5 is so chaotic that I can't get much "real" work done when everyone else is there. And mornings are quiet, and uneventful.

6:30 a.m. to 5:00 or 5:30 p.m. at an animal hospital. I can get a long lunch during our non-appointment hours since I am not up front in reception and generally in the back doing lab work and on-hands care of surgical and hospitalized patients.

My official hours are 7:45 - 2:45, but I rarely am able to leave until sometime between 4 & 4:30, and usually end up staying until 5:30ish one day a week.

Job 1 - 10 AM to 2 PM
Job 2 - 9:30 AM (ish) to whenever it's finished but usually about 9:50 AM, plus 5 to 10 minutes whenever I feel like it to fill in a couple of numbers on a spreadsheet and e-mail - One day per week. Love this job I get pd $40 to do it
Job 3 - 2:45 PM ish (as soon as I can get there from Job 1) to 6PM ish one or two days a week depending upon need.

All my jobs are close together the killer is they are all about 1 hr from home But given that I was laid off and out of work for over 18 months I'm glad to have ANY work.

When I was a photog/editor/chopper photog, I worked four 11 hour days. The coveted shift was the 7a-6p shift.

I HATED the morning show shift with the white hot intensity of ten thousand suns. That was 4:30a-1:30pm.

8:15-2:45 Monday-Friday and I don't take a lunch break. I take work home occasionally and do it after my 5 year old goes to bed.

Get up sometime between 10 and 11, surf the net for a half hour to an hour, fill orders until the mail truck arrives to pick up between 2:30 to 4, keep working until 4:30 to 5.
