- Working Hours Poll
Full day off would be nice 8)
Actually, I’ve got one on the 12th & 17th of this month so not too bad.
Working Self Employed, at least I’m doing it for me and not making anyone else rich ( apart from the petrol stations 😯 ) so I don’t mind one bit . I also like the freedom of just being able to book a Day off when I want but I have to give myself 3 weeks notice to get everyone in.
Regular hours would bore me and I can have half a day off during the week and have the trails all to myselfPosted 5 years agopopstarMember
Man, I don’t take communist bull shait propaganda about hitting targets and be a part of an amazing team. Been there, done that. Only very few companies can motivate and build such an environment.Posted 5 years ago
Most others just try to pretend to brain wash and ask for free extra time from their slaves. Many have been told to be gratefull to have a job at all.
British culture approach to extra long hours for masters approval knod is pure communistic evil. But I do like American approach of rewarding, much better. Work hard, play hard.
Yeah, you sense that I am milking connoisseur 🙂jamj1974Subscriber
I think you will all find that Spongebob left this bit out…!
“Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o’clock at night half an hour before I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad and our mother would kill us and dance about on our graves singing Hallelujah.”Posted 5 years agoMSPSubscriber
4 x 10 days would mean those days effectively becoming nothing but work days. I could see the evening rides, the morning swims and just meeting friends at the cafe after work watching the girls go by, just not happening if I was working 10 hour days.Posted 5 years ago
And I don’t think I could fit everything in to the extra day off, some things need to be spread out across the week.
If I could stay on the same money for a 4 x 8 week though, that would work for me, I think I might pitch the idea to my boss tomorrow.MoreCashThanDashSubscriber
We did this the other week with some guy asking about compressed hours.
4×10 is OK if you aren’t knackered on the extra day “off”, which has happened to me and friends.
9 day fortnight is nice.
MrsMCTD and me have both said that if we’d not been able to have kids we’d only do a 4 day week and have more time to enjoy life.Posted 5 years agom0rkMember
Used to do 4×9.25 fixed hours, then moved to 4.5 day week on flexi
I’m salary paid, so it makes no odds pay wise, but I do a lot more hours on 4.5 than I did before! 37 plays 47 normally!
The long weekends every week were nice, but the productivity of everyone being there for more days has increased, so that’s no bad thing
Not worked a ‘full’ five day working week contractually since 2001 – I think I’d really struggle if I had to move to that againPosted 5 years ago
