How Does a 9/80 Work Schedule Work Out?

legLess 4x10s work for us (1055 comments)

I've worked four ten-hour days at several companies, and I love it. Recently I had a little boy, and with his sleep schedule I found it really hard to spend enough time with him after work, so I'm back to five eight-hour days. It feels like cheating, going home every day at 4pm. Until Friday morning :)

Four other folks at our company work 4x10, including the CEO, and it works just fine. Friday is fucking sacrosanct: no emails, no phone calls, no contact of any kind. If a fire flares up, other people in the office deal with it.

And when I say 4x10, I mean it. We track our time pretty religiously, and our most bust-ass employee has averaged about 42 hours a week over 18 months.

And yes, we're a tech company :) Live in Portland? Want to move here? We're hiring.

Online Cartoonist Finds Financial Success Offline

IMHO Bloom County is better than Calvin & Hobbes. I think Bill Watterson is probably the best artist ever to see wide newspaper comic publication, but Bloom County had it where it matters: character and story. As wonderful as Calvin & Hobbes was (and I have every collection ever published), Bloom County gave us characters who changed and grew over time. The stories were varied, interesting, and sometimes lasted months. On top of that it was bloody hilarious.

I won't write a novel and try to convince you right away. Next time you're in a book store (or on Amazon :), pick up a Bloom County collection and see what you think.
