    I usually work on Saturdays. Not quite as dedicated or busy as on Mon-Fri, but by default it's a workday. Sundays are generally off.

    What about you? For the sake of this poll, any time from midnight to midnight counts. So if you work the graveyard shift Friday-Saturday, then you work Saturday. If you work the graveyard shift Saturday-Sunday, then you work both days.

    [e] Oops... no poll attached. Oh well, whatever...
    [e] Poll added. Thanks blue_neon for the tip.

    Yes I work weekends, Saturdays and Sundays. I have off on Mondays and Tuesdays so I have my "weekend" then. It only sucks during the NFL season, but even then I only work til 2pm on Sundays.

    Cheers.

    Well I work afterschool 2 days a week, but also saturday 8-12 in the morning.
    That is not too bad. I miss sleeping in after friday, but the folks are nice enough so its manageable.

    I work about two saturdays a year. Inventory, and once in a while we will do a 'customer appreciation day'. Other than that though, 7-4:30 m-f

    Three months off? I barely get two months, and I need every minute of it.

    I sometimes work on the weekend, but if I do, it's on my own time (i.e. the state gets me for free).

    What's your job?


    I'm often in lab on Saturdays and/or Sundays but never for more than 3hrs and not every weekend, so I don't think it qualifies.

    I work 12-hour days on both Saturday and Sunday.

    The good part is only work 12 hours total from Monday to Friday.
    Would you like a dream with that?

    If by work you mean ride all morning and into the afternoon, followed by slacking off and general relaxation...then yes

    Unless I'm overseas...then it's 24x7. Literally, 18 hours a day, 7 days a week, 6 months at a go.

    No, not yet at least

    I am turning in my app. To REI in a week or so. Wish me luck everyone! It has been my dream since well, since I encountered to outdoors to work at REI. I spend so much time there I remember every single section and what is in each of them.

    During the summers when I'm not at school, I work at a hardware store. I usually end up working one or both days of the weekend, but I don't mind. I like having weekdays off more.

    I work for my grandmothers accounting company, so i have very relaxed schedual. I have my own station so i can come any three days of the week at whatever hours i want, as long as by saturday i have all my weeks work in im good.

    7.95 an hour+deskjob+100% flexable schedual=probably the best job a highschooler could ask for.
