Default 10hr. days

Today was my first day of 10 hour work days that will last though September at least. Today I repaired a timber wall and replaced 8; 600lb. Balsoms ( pine tree). How long do you guys usually work?

I put in about 42 hours a week or so. Usually at 5 pm there is nothing left of me but a memory. I don't like to hang around work past 5

Hey, i just started working for Felder Electric! start around 7 at the shop, get to the site around 8 hopefully, and quit around 4-4:30 on a normal day, but last friday we didn't leave till after 6.

Wish I didn't have to do as much on ladders like this though... Maybe i should do landscaping lol..

I usually put in 30 or so hours of work and 40 hours of school. This week I only worked 3 days and I hit overtime two days working doubles (15 hours each day 10AM-1AM) and another 11 hour day (4PM-3AM)made me pretty tired by the end of the weekend. I actually hit overtime just working 3 days.. pretty amazing. lol.
