I work a messed up schedule as a manager at a pizza place. Nights some days, day time others. Not the best pay, but I've been there for 2 years and I'm afraid to change jobs. I have like the best manager!!! I work around 40 hours a week. We aren't really allowed to get over time...so I'm stuck at 40. I'm not complaining...It's a fun job.

My time varries greatly on the goings on.

If we're in the middle of a massive project I could very well work 20+hours a day.

However, since I am part time for the most part [ more time for my fishies ] I generally work about... 32 hours a week.

I tend to work through breaks and lunches to.

That is very cool.. is it anything like the movie "Pushing Tin" or was that movie a little over the top?

I always have thought ATC would be a really captivating job, I bet the hours go like minutes, you're so focused on stuff.

Anyway I am Systems Manager for a fastener company and I work usually around 40 but occasionally up to 60 or so when big things break. Usually just 40.

Wow, thinking about this sucks. I better not think about how much my salary comes out to hourly then .

I work 40+ depending on what is going on in a given day.... Being tech support for a large grocery chain, is a taxing but rewarding job!
