Gets up at 4.30am to leave by 5. Gets home about 7. But occasionally does night shifts too. Then often straight back to work the next day without a sleep. Used to do that 6 days a week but now takes at least 2 days off. If I'm lucky he'll take 3

DF is usually 430am - 430pm 5 or 6 days a week with an hour or two for lunch.
With the Spring Carnival approaching he is sometimes doing 7 days and longer hours.

DH works four long days a week, usually 7-6.30 or 10-8.30, but he'll often work longer. On his day 'off' he works at his second job for four or five hours. The second job is entirely his choice, I would be happy for him to hang out at home with us.

DH is a chef so in a normal week will work 10-3pm then 5-9.30/10pm for 3 days then 3pm-9.30/10pm for the other 2 days. This job usually includes weekends and he normally has split days off during the week.
He also has a second job cooking breakfasts at a motel where he works 5.30am-9am, 2-3 times a week.
He has just had an interview today for a mon-fri 6.30am-2.30pm job! Fingers crossed!!
ETA- he just had the interview and got offered the job!! yay for normal hours at last. He hasn't had a job where he didn't work nights and weekends since he was 14 yrs old!!

My husband luckily has a very average job with 'normal' hours. He works from 8am until 4pm monday to Friday with no weekend/overtime ever. So he leaves home 7:40am and gets home by 4:40pm.
He does have a 'flex' job though so he can work whatever hours he wants on whatever weekdays he wants so long as he has done 37.5 hours by the end of the week.

DH is a Project Manager and makes it a point to be the first at work and the last one to leave.
He leaves the house at 5.00am and returns at 6.00pm Monday to Friday, and Saturdays is 5.00am and returns at 3.30pm. He gets 1 week R & R after every 4 weeks to pay back the Saturdays worked. He must be contactable by phone and email 24/7 as well.

DH is gone by 530am and home by 530pm so 12 hours x 5 days a week.
Some days he's home later, some earlier.
