    Usually 45-50 hours per week. My job is very physical so anything more than that just kicks the crap out of me. The most I worked was a 94 hour week (6 days) when we got sent to Germany to do an installation. That work was a lot easier than what I normally do though...

    I work 3 days on then 4 days of so I normally have a 72 hr shift unless I am working over time. The most I have ever worked was 28 days straight during a busy fire season. It really sucked but the OT check was beautifull!!!

    BUT now I have the next 4 weeks off!!! Oh and it's paid vacation! :D

    i get aprox 72 hrs a week at the firehouse, even though they call it a 56 hr work week.

    i get 20-40 at my side job & we have been really busy here lately.

    so i have been averaging between 80-110 hrs a week.

    keep in mind we work 24 hr shifts at the firehouse so we have time to eat & sleep (most of the time)
