Default Re: working hours

Officially start between 8 and 9 and finish between 5 and 6, with 1 hour for lunch. So total 8 hours. Usually ends up 9 to 7 with lunch at the keyboard.

Default Re: working hours

I work a mixture of hours from week to week - no set times or number of hours. Sometimes I'll work until 1am, 2am, other times I won't do a jot of work apart from answer the odd email.

So far this week I've been 'working' from home

Oh how I remember the days when I used to work 8-4... and 9-2 during Ramadan...

Now it's 8-5.30/6 - with an hour or so on the phone at night - and calls on Fridays too.

Default Re: working hours

Between 10-12 hrs a day 6 days a week which is the norm on a large civil engineering project in the Gulf .

I have got the added advantage that i can tailor my hours to peaks or lulls in the project so it's quite flexible .

Default Re: working hours

I worked 9 to 5 (9 to 3 in Ramadan)

that would have changed to 7am to 4 pm when I went on air, had it ever actually bloody happened.
Now if I'm writing or developing I do it in the morning or in the evening with a glass of vino


I liked how I worked in the uk - very long day or nightshifts(13/14 hours) in return for a three day week.

8-4 Sun-Thurs, officially. In practice, 8-5 on average, sometimes longer. A few hours (1-3 on average) over the weekend, most weekends.

Default Re: working hours

9 - 6 with an hour for lunch officially, but actually i do 8 - 6 with sometimes staying later and most days doing about an hour from home at night...

i used to work 13-14 hour days on a regular basis years ago. however, it's just not worth it in the long run..
