First patient at 9.15, last patient is out by 5 Mon - Thurs with half an hour after for paperwork.

Friday last patient usually out by 4, surgery cleaned down by half past then cake and coffee for all the staff until 5! I have the best job in the world!

At the moment I'm working at the end of the world on Wednesdays and Thursdays so I can leave immediately after my last patient! Result!

Generally I start at 9.30ish and finish after 5.30.

The only hard and fast rule though, is that come hell or high water or even Ministerial diktat, I'm out of the door at 5.15 on a Thursday for pre band meal with friends and then band.

I try to stick to 9 to 5, but I was in at 7.30 this morning :shock: !

Sometimes have to come in weekends to fill up things with liquid nitrogen.

When I'm off working the the big bunker outside warrington it's 18 hours a day, 7 days a week for 2 - 3 weeks.

any scientific reason? or do you just like to show people how strong you are by smashing seemingly solid objects after you've frozen them?

I work on ultra-high vacuum chambers which work at 1 x 10-10 mbar (atmospheric pressure is 1000 mbar) which is about equivalent to the pressure in deep space. We use special pumps which have a liq nitrogen cooled trap - which stays cold for about 24 hrs before you have to fill it up again. Oh yeah and smashing frozen roses on tables - very important.

On a normal working day we start at 9am with a rehearsal (although we have to be in work and in uniform by half 8 ) and as long as were not doing a concert we're usually finished by 11.30-12ish. But if we have a gig then I can be on a bus for up to 8 hours, do a two to three hour gig and then do the bus journey back. So I can sometimes be working up to and over 24 hours in one go!! Its a hard life being a RM musicain!! NOT!!!!

I currently work office hours 08:30 - 16:30 ish with the odd earlies, lates or night shift depending on what's needed. We are expected to be flexible at all times and this includes the occasional Saturday or Sunday as well.

I used to work 04:30 - 14:00 then got a promotion to the above which from 1st June is meant to include working in Chester as well as Shrewsbury!! :evil:

Normally try to stick to 9-5 but it's very variable. If we have a real push on to get a project completed then 90+ hour weeks aren't uncommon :(
