    so ya, I just finished a 14 hour shift, working at an Automotive company

    whats the longest shift you have ever worked(this probably won't apply to A LOT of people on this site, minors and such :lol: ) and was it hard labor or just kinda sitting around doing nothing for hours on end so to speak?

    Most I've worked is 8.

    This will sound contradictory, but I would describe it as both. :lol:

    12 hour days for 3 weeks, also living in a hotel approx 200 miles from home.

    I was selling mobile phones at the time, and worked for a promotion team that spent the year going up and down the country. On the above occasion, I was in London.
    Hated it. :mad5:

    They shouldn't show me the "before tax" column, just blank it out. It makes me cry:sad:then the anger kicks in.

    Screw you government! That's MY money!:mad5:

    True
    My tax was more than a normal persons wage

    At the mow I have to do four twelve hour shifts (we did do 4 9 hours)
    I didnt sign up for 12 hours the boss decided that he needs more ****ing money (we get paid same rate)

    Meh I need a new job but no where wants mii

    For me it would have to be around two to three hours... However that will soon change. I've gotten a job which requires me to work 8hrs/day for the entire duration of the summer holiday.

    Obviously I don't work >.<

    My Grandfather did work 24hours at one point...That was shortly after the war though. He'd go to work , do his 24 hours, then go back home, have five hours sleep, then go back to do another 24 hours.
    And after all that, his pay was still awful.

    longest shift i worked was only 12 hours in my most recent jpb, we was VERRY short staffed, there was like 7 of us running around halton lea shopping centre trying to do everyones jobs while shops were full and one had a que going from top floor near escolators, down escolators on 2nd floor (release day for wii i think) and we had to get all those people off the escolators and find somewhere else to stay. funniest day of my life
