Absolutely horrendous! Regular paid hours are 8:30 to 5pm, but most days I arrive at 7am and don't leave until after 6pm. And usually do not take a lunch due to the assignments I have that are mandatory and required to be completed between 12noon and 2pm. There is a disgusting lack of work-life balance and you are constantly frowned upon when you take any time off.
Working hours were good for time in and out, but in between those hours their was no help for 8 hours because of constant no call no shows, and the employees there would look at you like a deer in headlights if you asked for help
Long days, no OT
Long, 11 hours most days. Add to that I was to carry a company-issued iPhone (in addition to my own) and was, as such, on call 7 a.m. to midnight, 365 (yes, including holidays with my children).
Mine were unbelievably demanding. I worked from 8:30 to past 10 p.m. on some occasions, also a number of weekends. My average day would have been 9-6:30 p.m. (lunch at my desk most days). I was an "exempt" employee, hence, I wasn't eligible for overtime. Throughout year one, I was given repeated assurances that my efforts would be rewarded in my annual bonus that, when the time came, wouldn't have afforded me two consecutive nights at a motel in Chelsea, MA.
Bloody awful. I was there until 7 p.m. Christmas eve two years running. And that was the tip of the iceberg -- I worked some of my longest days ever there (8:30-10:30, plus the commute either way). This became a particular issue for me as I developed some significant health problems my time there, and I found myself trying to make up time following MRIs (among other procedures). It was really too much.
8:30-5pm. Because overtime was revoked.
