Not sure, but I would encourage you (if you are not already) to consider factors other than simply the # hours. For example, you could have one company where you work more hours, but also where you are truly have a learning experience. So it's important to consider things like legitimacy of the experience, professionalism of your colleagues, level of cultural toxicity, and the underlying HR strategy of the firm. One of the greatest myths is to to express and categorize positions in terms of # of hours.
