I used to leave my house at 7am and get home around 10pm while working and going to grad school. There were also a few times in college while on “break” I’d go to my restaurant job at 7am work until 5pm, then go babysit from 6pm to 2am. In accounting, I’ve done several 9am to midnight, but that’s where I max out.

Worked 34-36 hours straight three times in one week. Worked all day Saturday, Saturday night, and Sunday. Slept Sunday night. Worked Monday and slept Monday night. Worked all day Tuesday, Tuesday night, and Wednesday. Slept Wednesday night. Worked all day Thursday, Thursday night, and Friday. Slept Friday night.

All the people saying 25 hours... That's more than a day Also, why are you still in PA?! I hear these stories and am like no way is this really what's happening. Then people are like "YES WAY. I last breathed a full breath 39 hours ago. Reality has dissolved. Time is an illusion. I no longer know the caress of a fresh breeze, or crave human touch. Sleep beckons, but extensions wait for no man (or woman) "

I’ve done 80 hours for a month immediately followed by 100 for another month for several years in a row. Do not recommend, your health (mental and physical) will decline and you will age rapidly. The damage is mostly irreversible. But it’s ok, we stuffed the partners’ pockets with our life

They get paid well which really helps because a lot of the battle when working such long hours is the resentment and anger that causes a toll on you (I.e. they should’ve staffed us better etc.)

All-nighters a couple times, worst experience was leaving at 6am to work in office with team 2 hours away at 8, left at 7pm to make an appointment with a wedding vendor at 8, left there at 9 and got fast food on the way home, worked from 10pm til 7am at which point I took 30 min to drive fiancée to airport for a weekend trip, back online at 7:30 and worked till 10pm that night.
