How long does it take you to go to work and working hours ?

edited May 19 in The Pub (Off Topic)
Since I worked I always had almost 30 min to an hour travel time to go to work.
I was wondering if it's the majority of people and wether it's our society worldwide which does that. I never had the joy to go back to home at mid day.
As there's a lot of different nationalities on the forum I was wondering if it's about the same for everyone.

How long does it take you to go to work and how many hours do you spend for work a week ?

Here in France with travel time it makes me do 46 hours a week based on  (37 hours work + 5 hours travel + 45 minutes everyday  lunch)
A lot of things could be done at home or in a center near my home but "working from home" is not a usual habit here yet.

    25 minutes each way to work (driving), 1.5 hours work at home, 8.5 hours at work (no breaks)= 54 hours per week. I listen to music when working at home and to audiobooks in the car. Work has been hectic lately as the company I work for recently acquired another company (most of whose workers were let go). A sad sign of the times, unfortunately...

    Some days I work from home. Some days I travel. Every weekI work around 60 hours not counting travel. On days when I fly to a meeting it's usually something like leave the house at 5am for the airport and get back around 1am the following morning, drive home (45 mins) go to sleep and work a full day the next one

    well now a days I work where ever I am. So no travel time. When I was employed at a location I typically spent 45 minutes each way, which is fine because it was either on foot or on bike and most of the time was part of the day I looked forward to.

    I don't think of it as work. It's my life and I love what I do. Without life I would have nothing. However I understand some are not as fortunate as me and life to them is work and those that can't live, work. We have only one life, live it!

    Now that is the clarity of a good few glasses of wine.

    My (dog walking) business is hard to explain! I start about 7am and usually finish about 830pm with many breaks during the day. I generally do between 10 and 20 appointments a day. I live in about a one mile radius to all my clients. About 90% of the time I ride my electric bike to my clients homes in just a few minutes. Usually I have a few appointments then go home for a break. Every day is different and I'm not complaining! :-)

    I've got a 25 minute drive and work three 12-hour shifts with 4 days off.

    Previous schedule was 7 on / 7 off ... miss that one! 




  • Seconds to get to work 6-8 hours 5 days a week as a milk man, yes we are still around

    20 min drive, 8 hour shifts 5 days a week
  • 1.5-2 hrs travel time. No fixed timings - anywhere from 9 to 11 to 13 hours working 5 days a week. 4 -6 hours most Saturday's. Thinking of quitting the job mode.
  • I'm pretty lucky. I have a 15 minute drive and work 8 to 5 with an hour's lunch, totalling out to 40 working hours a week.

    About 45 minutes drive to work. Normal shift is 8 hours, longest shift was 48 hours.

    Gotta love the railway!

    Oh man. A topic I can't resist griping about.

    Here in Atlanta, I live precisely 17.4 miles from work and it takes me on average 1.5 hrs each WAY. So 3 hrs a day.

    Horrible.

    And yep, I utilize Waze and there are no viable public transport options here.
  • I am from Czech republic and my working and travelling times are as follows:
    My working week consist is 37.5 hours/week and travelling time up to 2 hours a day (back and forth), by public transport (bus line) combined with some walking distance.

    But thats written above is theory cause I am working on 12 hours shifts(day/night 6 am to 6 pm and vice versa) with irregural scheduling trough the week, so for me main factor is how many woking days have A shift ( I am E shift) so my working month varies between 12 to 16 shifts. Minimal break between shifts is 11 hours by law in here. Jack
