I'm curious to know how many hours people work in various fields. Some of my coworkers believe we work too many hours, but I have a feeling that we work a fairly average amount.

I'll start: 47-50 hours a week in architecture.

By "work" do you mean "show up" or "perform duties as assigned"?

Usually 40 hours.

Billable hours would be a good metric, I guess.

I am clocked in for 45 to 55 hours per week, but a couple hours at the start of each day are usually just bullshitting around.

I own a small online business. Work and life just blend together into a sort of 24/7/365 "thing" where I'm always on the clock.. and always not.

Film & Television Industries are 60 hours / week MINIMUM for below-the-line crew (meaning your camera guys, grips, electricians, props, hair, makeup, wardrobe, etc....not producers, directors, actors)...with most grunts putting in 70+...that's a 5-day week.

This does not include your commute or your 1/2-lunch.

Sometimes, they go 6 day weeks, and then it's more like 72-82 hours per week.

This has been a standard for years. But ever since a camera guy named Brent Hershman died when he fell asleep while driving home, there has been a back-lash against it....trying to get it down to a 12-hour day max, but it hasn't been successful

Around 80+ hours a week right now. I start bottle feeding fawns at 7am and don't get home until 9pm. Working on a game ranch is not all fun and games a lot of time is spent getting ready for the next season.

40-60 hours depending on the work load. But I work from home so I usually take short lunches and I don't have to deal with driving anywhere.

I had been working 40hrs for the last several years, but it started increasing this spring, and for the last 5 weeks I've been around 80hrs. It'll probably stay that way for the summer and then slow down to 60ish for the foreseeable future. I hope.

Oilfield, I work anywhere from 40-60 hours per week.

That's about to go up though because I'm getting busy as hell.

I used to do the 80-110 hours per week, 2 weeks on and 1 week off. There are guys here that work even more than that.

OP, 47-50 hours a week isn't anything to bitch about. I have a friend working salary and 70+ hours per week.

I keep mine around 60 to 75 hours at work and then around 30 on my side gig. My side deal is technically work and generates income but i view it as a hobby.

I love what i do so even though its stressful and the customers are dickheads, its my life so i dont think much about it.

It also requires a fair amount of driving so i get to surf arfcom while i drive.

40-42 usually. If I'm on a business trip, it could be 50+. Subtract the 2-3 hours a day on here, and well...

Usually 32. I have so much vacation and comp time building up I have usually been taking my Friday off every week for awhile now to get alot of work done at the house.

I usually come in about 15 minutes late and use the side door so the boss doesn't see me. Then I just kinda space out for about an hour just staring at my desk and looking like I'm working.
Then, I space out for about an hour after lunch. I'd say in a full week, I only do about 15 minutes of real, actual work.
