It's a 40 hour work week BUT they amount of work you are expected to do within those 40 hours is unrealistic. Sometimes you will work those 40 hours in 3 1/2 days sometimes it will be spread out over 6 days. True you may have a 4 day weekend but your typically so stressed out about all the work that is waiting for you that it's hard to enjoy the time off. Busy times are from late august to early June Of course there are other positions that are only 9-5. Those are a different story.

It is a pretty strict schedule of 8 to 5 with little room for overtime as it is a non profit.

We actually just changed to 40 hour work week which has been so far so good. Somewhat difficult to finish everything within that time, but they are trying to help with work-life balance. Still, expect at least 4 evenings and 1 weekend per month.

Hours can be long as we are open 8 AM - 6PM, but due to the nature of some positionsI can work until 9PM. However, the company allows for Flex time and does close on Fridays
