    Some interesting figures from a recent survey by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (figures are for the UK)

    • Average working week for all workers is 39.6 hours
    • Average working week for men 44.8 hrs
    • Average working week for women 33.9 hrs
    • Average working week for younger workers (18-24 year olds) is 36.3 hours
    • A quarter of workers now work “long hours” (over 48 hrs per week)
    • More than a quarter of those people who are working “long hours” admit to health problems as a result
    • More than four in ten workers say long hours "gets in the way of" their relationship with their partner or spouse

    Where I work the office "core hours" are 9am to 5pm with half an hour for lunch, making it a 37.5 hr working week.

    Personally I work about 45-50 hrs per week depending on the workload, with my normal working day being 9am to 6pm. Lunch is taken at my desk.

    Most of the time I work 40, but sometimes I work 50 if there is a lot of work to be done.

    The schedule here is to be in the office for 8 hours, with an hour paid lunch. If I have a lot of work to do, I work through lunch, so it's anywhere from 35-40 hours a week.

    Early shift: 07:30 - 16:00. 30 mins lunch 8 hours a day
    Late shift: 09:00 - 18:30. 30 mins lunch 8 hours a day.

    That makes a 40 hour week. Usually I work overtime and get 50 to 60 hours a week, depending on the amount of work.

    Though I'm scheduled to work ~40 hours a week, usually that doesn't include lunch breaks and leaving ahead of schedule.

    72.2 Last week. (40 + 32 Overtime) (Fat Paycheck!)

    57 This week. (40 + 17 Overtime)

    Next week I'm scheduled for another 57, but I'm thinking about trading with another guy to lower it to 48 'cause I need a break.

    I remeber when I used to chaulk up 70hr weeks or more.
    Never again if I can help it.
