When I worked at a hotel, I'd get in around 9am for housekeeping. I'd have between 30 and 45 to catch up on leftover overnight laundry and restock the
carts. I got started on rooms at 10am check-out, roughly. Clock-out depended on how packed the place was, anywhere between 3 and 6pm.
When I was doing front desk work, it was overnights, and usually varied from between 8pm & 10pm to 4am.
Pales in comparison to my husband's current job at a manufacturing plant, though. He leaves home around 4pm, and gets in around 30 minutes later. The
place has a good reputation for having a great work relationship between people, everyone tends to go in a bit earlier than needed to hang out before
the shift. Between 5 & 5:30 is usually a cross-shift staff meeting to keep the next shift apprised of current runs, totals, etc and so forth. They
usually hit the production floor around 6.
He doesn't get off work until 6am, and gets home around 6:30am. He's stayed until 7 a few times for extended cross-shift meetings here & there. The
work weeks there are staggered, 4 days one, 3 the next for work/home balance, as best possible. But very few people turn down extra OT when they give
He's joked that he's going to work there until he keels over from old age. Hey, it's possible. My maternal grandfather did exactly that, literally
just dropped & died on his factory's production floor well into his golden years.
