You never work only 40 hours, which is what you are promised upon hire. It was a good week if I only worked for 60 hours. I should also mention that no overtime is provided for extra hours worked even though you are only salaried for 40.
If you want to have a life, this job will not work. Must work on "family's" schedule which means if they want Friday at 6:00 pm, guess where you'll be? If a different family wants Friday at 7:00 am? Well, you get the point. Plus mountains of paperwork and meetings. 40 hours is a joke.
I worked here for 6 months and my marriage was suffering because of the extremely long hours. When I was hired, I was told I would have between 3-5 families. I had 10 families instead. The work week is 60-70 hours a week but because you were hired in at salary, you do not get paid overtime. Going to work with YV is one of the biggest mistakes I've ever made. So very happy to be away.
They say it is "project 40" but that doesn't count your weekend on call hours. Don't walk away- run!!!!!!!!
70+ a week

There was a 40 hour cap for interns a week, but can go up to 80 for full time staff. Days and hours you wanted to work were flexible, as long as you let someone know when you were coming.
