SIP with two working partners and demanding jobs has been untenable for a while, but I need some perspective. Video calls before 7AM and until 8PM is insane, right?

like

Video calls: 0
Calls: 0-1 hour per day
Real work: 3-4 hours per day. With Q coming prolly will spike up but life is good now

Less calls, but Slack messages start around 6 am some days. I probably have between 2-5 calls daily. Usually work from 8-6 or 7 on a better day but recently have been doing a lot of 8 am - 10 pm and I'm so tired. I just want to have time to work out and make my own food. Like really minimal ask.

My video calls start at 6:30am and go straight through the day. If I’m lucky I can schedule in a quick 30 minute break mid-day/early afternoon

Generally have 10 hour days right now

Holy shit 6:30? That’s when I go to sleep

9-5

I'll spend 6-8 hours without leaving my chair.

I'm on video calls for 3-7 hours a day, except for Mondays when I usually have 1 hour or none.

9am-7pm (pre busy season tax). Video calls 25-35% of that time.

Probably 4-5 hours of calls a day, but when I’m not in a call I’m on an “informal” call with team members to review work/coach/etc.

Generally working from 8am-7pm. 3-4 hours on weekends and lately adding another 1-2 hours in the evening on top of that 8-7.

10-11 hours a day, 7-8 of them on calls.

I’m working across two teams at the moment so I start the day around 7:30am & finish up around 8:30pm most nights. 9:00am until around 1:00pm is basically all back to back video calls.

I applied for a Community Coordinator position on 5/13, through a company’s job portal. I would like to follow up on the application via phone call, however there is no point of contact to follow up with and no messaging interface on the portal. Any advice on how I can do this? I know the company’s local address, but am unsure if their HR department is in that building as they have offices across the east coast.

I went to a physical exam, the doctor suggested a bunch of tests. I said I only want to do preventative ones. He said one diagnostic test is about $300, so I agreed to take it. Because of this one diagnostic test, everything is billed as diagnostic. I got 2k medical bills for the visit, preventative tests and the aforementioned test. Is there anything I can do? I talked to insurance and doctor but they wont budge.
