    How many hours do you actually work?

    I'm sure I'm like many and don't have a "typical" day so to speak. I'm curious as to how many hours, let's say in a week, that everyone is actually working.
    There's a lot of things at my business that I do that I don't count as true work. I'd guess on average I am not doing actual work stuff for more than 4 hours/day, and that's probably generous.
    What about the rest of the fanatics?


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    You're probably looking for full time employee answers, but as a student, I work 3-4 hours on the days I'm scheduled which isn't every day of the week.

    Tax season? 50+ hours of work/week and 60ish in my office.

    Not to tax season? 33-35 hours of work/week with 40 in my office.

    Re: How many hours do you actually work?

    I'd say I'm in the office or out 45-50 hours a week, depending on whether I'm in on Saturday. I usually keep my phone on and answer it about 60 hours, and I return emails at all hours of the night.

    Same here. However, since we are retired, we are free to do stuff for elderly parents. Between them and our own things we do, it's busy from the time we get up until bedtime. We're busier now than when we were working.
