- Who works weekends?
On a training secondment so weekdays only this year, but the last 7 years have been never fewer than two and usually three weekends a month, either as days or nights. Conservative guesstimate would be 60% of the weekends in last 15 years at work. Childcare costs and just wanting to be there at the school gate etc means that this year my wife does all that instead!Posted 4 years agohammyukMember
Every weekend unless I can move teams around spring through to autumn.Posted 4 years ago
Plus evenings, days, nights, etc as clients needs dictate.
Downside of being the boss hence the bike living in the back of the Caddy – if it’s decent then a ride on the way back from meetings/clients/site visits gets fitted in.crankboyMember
My job has an on call element so some weekends bankholidays etc. Not had to cover Xmas day for 5 years now as we have some Muslim staff but do do extra for Ramadam . Don’t get any time in lieu or paid unless I am actually called out. I also do trial prep on weekends and evenings. It is always the first sunny weekends of the year that get stolen by work.Posted 4 years agotomvetMember
Monday to Friday 8-7ish/when the works done, with one night on duty a week and one weekend on duty a month, followed by a full weeks work. So when starting duty Saturday 8am will not be off duty until Monday night 7pmish, that’s about 60hrs straight of being at Worcestershire farmers and horse owners beck and call, and at this time of year they are certainly calling. Sorry currently on one of those weekends and sulking 🙁Posted 4 years agohoundlegsMember
I used to work a weekend night shift for years. I’d start midnight on Friday,for six hours,then twelve hours Saturday and Sunday night.Posted 4 years ago
In a nutshell midnight Friday to 6am Monday, then the week off.
Used to get paid the same as the regular workers cos it was anti social hours.
A 30 hour week with 5 days off every week, best goddam job I ever had.
