I worked about 50-60 hours the first couple of weeks until I figured the job out. After that, I think I worked about 35-40 hours a week. It's not hard work once you get the hang of it. The only challenging part is getting refiles as the reviewers don't seem to be using a standard playbook and therefore don't always manage to write a report that could preclude every question they could come up with.
50 to 60 hours a week
40 hours a week and the occasional overtime.

Because you did not have a schedule per say, you had to be very flexible to meet with the subjects at their convenience, even during the week-ends.

Flexible but you'll definitely work over your 40 hours and hopefuly you'll get overtime for it. The work load is never ending.
