    Does 7a-5p count? And yes I work in a hospital. No holiday or weekends
    What area are you in?

    For me this isn't a costume! I have weekends off and even holidays And I work in a hospital! I negotiated and got an excellent schedule.

    I'm busy on the weekends and can't work. And I hate twelve hour shifts!

    0800-1700 job - M-F - Case management.

    06:30 I hit the snooze button, then I get up, shower, light breakfast, hit the morning traffic commute and make it inside my office or department 10 minutes before my start time.

    - 0800 lots of voice and e-mails, then the usual case management duties, all throughout the day.

    1 hour lunch break, sure.

    17:00 - meeting deadlines, last minute phone calls with insurance companies; ensuring patients were actually discharged and "transported" away from the hospital.

    17:30ish documentation and all.

    17:5018:00ish I'm driving home, hitting the merciless rush hour commute.

    18:30-18:50ish, Home, work-out, dinner, shower, then night night by 10ish PM.

    I was basically working 12 hours every single day and that's Monday to Fridays!

    That's how it was every single day of my life for two years!!!

    Back to the Present Time....
    I'm happy with my 12 hours a day, 3 days a week gig!!!!

    I work in college health. Some larger colleges/universities may have weekend/evening hours, but I do not. It's a great gig, great benefits, tuition assistance for myself and my kids after a few years. I work Monday through Friday, 9:30 - 5pm. We are counting down until winter break in 5 weeks, when we'll get two and a half PAID weeks off. Best move ever.

    I don't work 9 to 5 but I do work 7-3 with a weekly RDO and every other weekend. Works for me.
