    Went w/ 40 - 50, but sometimes it's more...much more. During last years Superbowl I was on shift from sun-up to sun-down. Good pay, lousy sleep.

    sometimes as many as 80, but usually around 60-70 hours a week.

    even with so many hours, I cannot say I make a living--I'm just keeping my bills paid, with a minimum amount of surplus. The industry I am in is in terrible condition.

    Since I'm self employed, my hours vary. During the busy season like Christmas, I work 7 days a week.

    I haven't had a vacation in years............

    We average 42 hours per week.

    Our schedule is based on an 8 day week, so it rotates around...

    2 - 10 hour days
    2 - 14 hour nights
    4 - days off

    so we put in 48 hours in a 4 day period, then 4 days's supposed to average out to 42 hours/week, but I've never actually worked the numbers.

    Not including overtime, which is not guaranteed and has actually been cut significantly lately...:mad:

    Being an owner and on salary it varies. In the winter I work less, 45-50 hours, because I can't get as much work done outdoors. In the summer I kick it up and work more hours.

    Does that count your time on here... (and is that bedroom painted yet?)

    I am the owner of my company also, but my weekly salary has gone down a lot this past year. My employees all got raises.

    Can I work for you? ;)

    In all seriousness, kudos to you for being one of the few honorable businessmen in this day and age.

    40 hours on my day job, 20 hours making strops, packing, etc.... rarely a Saturday, never on Sunday. My wife puts in another 6 to 8 a week on our business as well.

    Way too much time though and I will be doing this even more part time next year

    thanks, Jason. I went through hell to get where I am I am today. I came to Canada without even 3 dollars in my pocket, and worked myself into sickness to build a successful business. Nobody even lifted a finger for me.

    I work a 40 hour work week when I am in the office. However, I travel 30-40% of the time and spend a lot of time in airports and hotels over weekends so on average it is probably up there close to 60 hours per week.

    As an engineer, my hours vary depending on the company's project load. I'll spend a few months working 40 hours weeks, then work 50-70 hours/wk for a 3-6 weeks. Averages 45-50 hrs/wk, but not consistant at all. Christmas and New Years weeks will be 18-20 hours :).

    Eight hours a day, five days a week; no more, no less.

    10-12 hr days, plus a 12 hour night about once a week. An extra 60 hour weekend every 2 months.
