Do You Usually Work On The Weekends?

It seems to me that more people are working on the weekends than before. On the other hand, a lot of people don't seem to be working during the week, so maybe it balances out.

If this were a poll, I'd imagine the early results might be biased. Though not quite as much as a poll entitled, "Do you check IPVM on the weekend?". That one would be almost guaranteed to be near 100%, for a couple days. :)

Our technicians don't work weekends, I will rarely do field or office work on weekends.

I think it depends on your target customer base. If your targeting home owners its a no brainer to make yourself available. We focus on Commercial, Industrial, Municipal and work weekends when the work load mandates it. You can be a whole lot productive when your not working around a fully staffed facility.

Only when the fishing is not productive...

Fishing as in Catfish or Cat 6?


I don't work or check IPVM on weekends.

It's mostly office work on the weekends. Technical work only in the event of an emergency.

I think it's more common for the smaller businesses to work on weekends, but I could be wrong.

Yes, I work weekends and unlike many I don't think that this is a bad thing. My opinion here is a little skewed given that I have always worked in "start up" cultures where everyone wears multiple hats. In these kinds of environments no one "tells" you to work weekends (or long hours), you just do it because the work needs to get done.

You know who works weekends?

Crime works weekends. And holidays for that matter.

That's why I make it a point to punch in for a full shift pretty much every weekend that there's not a NFL/NBA/MLB game on.

But that's just me...

We're closed on Friday afternoon and Saturdays, but we're open on Sundays.

I personally work one Sunday a month on average.

While I don't make it a matter of policy to work weekends, I do when it is needed. We sometimes will have clients that need us to make our noise and mess overnight, over a weekend, on a specific date and time, and we will usually comply. We try our best to make it easy to do business with us, which we hopes makes us more valuable to the client.

How many of us are posting anonymously because we don't want our bosses to know that we don't like working weekends...

I don't think that learning any of my employees hate working on the weekends would shock me.
