How would you go about asking a potential employer about working hour expectations, like being on-call or working 8+ hours a day? I don't mind working extra here and there, but if 50+ hours are required I plan on asking for more compensation. I plan on getting this in writing should I get an offer.

I usually just ask what the hours are. If they give me something like a shift (9-5) then I follow up with “does the team/this role usually have to work nights/weekends?” or something to that effect.

An approach I have taken is asking what the core business and team hours are and ask how often they differ from the time frames provided. In addition, I ask if there are frequent stretched schedules or off schedule work.

Hey everyone! I’m just about ready to put in my 2 weeks with my current company. I’d love to work directly with this major company instead of through a consultancy. But my employment contract has some wording which makes that impossible for the next 2 years.

Problem is that I’d like to give Major Company a chance to pull strings before I hand in my notice and they get told that I resigned immediately (worst case, but I have trust issues with my firm starting pretty early on). Should I try it?
