What are your work hours?

Some comments on my late daycare pick up post made me wonder, what are your work hours?

I work 9:45 - 6 (which is standard for my industry).  DH works 9-6 but I think he can leave at 5 if he wants (which is why he's doing the daycare pick up lol).

  • 7 to 4:30, M to Thurs. and 7 to 4 on alternating Fridays. It's an odd schedule, but it works.

    We are flexible.  I like to work 8-5, which are core office hours and match up well with my clients' schedules, but if I am doing pickup I have to leave before 5 due to commute time.  Similarly, if I am doing dropoff I will not make it in by 8.  DH works literally right next door to our day care so he does more of the picking up and dropping off than I do, but we juggle things around depending on meeting schedules, etc.  I also work from home sometimes and that shaves off the commute time.  So, generally 8ish to 5ish, give or take here and there.

  • I hear you. The hours of your job are going to dictate what pick up time will actually work for you.

    My job is 8:30 or 9 to 5.

    DH is 8 to 5.

    I have a PT schedule and am generally only in the office from 8:30 - 4:30, but I have an hour commute on top of that.  I used to work 7 - 4 at my last job.

    DH works roughly 8 am - whenever? 

    I am always the one on evening childcare as DH has a much harder time leaving the office at a certain time and now travels for work a few days a week.


  • I'm a teacher, so 8:00-3:15.

    DH's hours are pretty flexible, but he usually works 9-6 in order to drop DD off at preschool at 8:30.

  • 8:00 to 4:30, Monday through Friday.

  • 6AM-2PM Which totally sucks for any type of DC schedule which is why DH is a SAHD.

  • 8 am to 4 pm, Fridays I skip lunch and take an hour vacation and work 8 - 2. It's awesome.
  • 8-5.  At lot of my colleagues work more of a 9-6, but since my boss gets in around 8 most days anyway (and works 8-7) I don't think he minds so much that I generally leave super early.

  • We have flex hours.  I'd prefer to work earlier like 8-4, but my whole team tends to work later, so I generally work like 9-5:30.  Luckily I am close to daycare so I can pick up just before 6.

  • I work 8:30-5:00.  DH gets to work around 8:30, but the time he gets out varies day to day.  During the college school year it's usually 6:00 or 7:00 with the occasional really late night 9:00-10:00. But during the summer it is around 5:00.

  • Before DS I worked 9-6 in the office daily and more as needed either in the office or at home.  After DS, I moved up my hours in the office to be 8-5 so I could pick up DS before DC closes.  I still work from home or in the office in the early mornings/evenings/weekends as needed.

    We don't have official hours though it would be highly irregular to leave before 5 or to come in after 10. I am expected to work 45-50 hours a week. We're transitioning our childcare arrangements. Next month my hours will be 8:30 to 5:15 or so. I'll probably catch up at night a bit. Last year I worked 9:30 to 6:15 or so.

  • I work 7 to 4. my office is open 8 to 5 and most work those hours. I'm available by phone and email the hour they are here and I'm not.

    And if I'm needed late I do stay.
  • I work 7-4 and DH works 7ish-3:or 3:30. (He doesn't take a lunch). DH always drops off, and we swap pick up so that DH can work out a few days a week.

  • I work 8 - 430, it works out much better than the 830 - 5 the office has. DH works hmmm, leaves for work about 530 and gets home anywhere between 6 and 730. SO daycare is all on me.

  • Physically in the office 9:15-5:00 M-F. But I work on the subway to and from the office (mostly emails). DH is his own boss, so his hours are super flexible, which has been awesome. We drop DS off together. DH picks him up by 5:30 and I am home by 6:00.

    Physically in the lab 9 to 4ish most days. This is because of my obscene commute time. Make up the other hours at night and weekends at home. Occasionally have wacky experimental time points that require more crazy hours like a 24 hour day in a couple if weeks. Blech.

  • My hours are 8:30-4:30 daily, however, I telecommute on Mondays and Fridays.  Its great because my commute is 90 minutes each way.  DH primarily does the pick up and drop off...but on my telecommute days I am able to do either the pick up or drop off which is nice!

  • 7:30 to 4:30, but most days I'm in at 7:10. I rarely stay late, but I will come in early or eat lunch at my desk if I need to. DH works 6:30 pm to 11:30 pm mon through wed, so I need to be home no later than 5 those days since he is home w DD during the day.

  • The job/contract I had that just ended was from 9 - 4:30 and sometimes weekends as needed (I WFH) but the job I'm applying to and hoping to get is 8:30-5:30 but I hope they will be flexible about hours and let me do a short lunch or something because DS has to be picked up by 5:30 so if DH can't do it I will have to figure something out.

  • Mine are flexible.  Most of my lab doesn't get in until 10-11am. I come in "early" at 9:15ish.  I leave either at 4:30 (if I'm doing pickup) or 6-6:15. Traffic is too terrible to leave between those times.
