What Time Do You Typically Leave Work Each Night?

A recent article about Sheri Sandberg, the chief operating officer (COO) of Facebook, has got people talking about work and life... and finding the perfect balance. You see, Sandberg recently announced that she leaves her (we can only imagine) full-of- responsibilities job at 5:30pm every day, just so she can make it home by 6:00pm for dinner with her kids. To some, that's called being a loving mom. To others, it's called being a lazy worker.

Finding the perfect balance between work and play has always been a struggle. You don't want to be perceived as a slacker at work... but you also don't want to spend late nights in the office and have your personal life go to shambles. So, it's only right that we ask where your priorities are. Do you stay at work later just because you don't want to be perceived as lazy? Or are you the type who always puts your personal wellbeing before your professional duties? Take our Work or Play Quick Vote!

    My typical work day has been 14-16 hours a day 5- 7 days a week for several years now, 18-19 hours every day when I am in the field or deployed (Military). Kind makes the lies about military compensation a little more obvious.

    Our work hours are 7:30 to 4:30 so I leave generally at 4:35 or so. My wife and I carpool so I have to pick her up. On days when we drive in separately I'll work a bit later.

    My scheduled departure time is 5pm. I'll leave earlier if I have to do something with one of my kids or if I'm done with my work.

  • Michael 2012/04/22 16:32:34
    I don't work.
    But, when I did, I left my 9-5 job to go to two other jobs, one picking up lab samples from medical buildings and delivering them to the lab on my way to my third job, hostessing and cashiering at a restaurant until 11PM. I did my food shopping and errands my during break and kept cold things in the small refrigerator at work. Never heard the word "personal wellbeing".
  • TKramar 2012/04/22 13:40:19
    It depends on the day.
    My primary job is graveyard shift. A normal 8 hour day would be 8 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. Yet, some days I spend about 10 hours there, and other days 6.

    When I say depends on the day I mean it depends on what the nits have me on for.

    It depends on the day.
    It ranges from about 4PM to about 7PM. On exceptional days it could be as early as 2PM, or as late at 10PM.

    But I NEVER stay just to "look good". I don't need to.

    And leaving at 5 to be home for dinner with the kids is not a lazy worker, it's a person with her priorities straight. She works to live, not the other way around. And btw, it's not balancing work with "play" - dinner with the kids is not "play", it's life. It's more important than work.

    I tend to work 8am - 6pm M-Th and then leave when I can on Friday.

    I don't get paid for the hours I clock, but for the results I deliver -- working an extra a hour or two isn't about whether or not I'm perceived as lazy, but whether or not I can accomplish my short-term goals. Also, I'm more likely to put in extra hours towards the beginning of the week so that I can leave early on Friday -- my work complete.
