If you have a three days a week part time job and can freely choose which days you work, do you prefer to work three days in a row or spread out the workdays in a different pattern? Assume once you've decided, this pattern stays.

After four days off, I'm already so used to it I'd dread to work. If w means work and o means off, my favorite pattern would be ww oo w oo.

I'd go Monday Tuesday Thursday if that were the case.

I hate that feeling on the last day of a lot of days off.

I do 3 ten hour days in a row plus the hour drive. I'm exhausted by the time I get home

I used to manage a distribution center with either 4-10s or 3-12s, all clustered. I would take the 3-12s every time, even though as a manager it actually meant 14 or 15 hours each day.

4-day weekends every week?

Take 3 vacation days and you are off for 11 days?

I loved it!

Spread out! I do have a 3 day a week part time job and I do so for health reasons. Working takes a lot out of me and I need time to recuperate.

I used to manage a pool with long hours. I scheduled myself to work three 13 hour days in a row with 4 days off in a row. I would attend a meeting on one of the off days.

Had something like that, doing 3rd party retail electronics merchandise vendor work. Paid ok, but offered very little work. Lumped work together based on location and worked between 1-3 days/week. It was nice for

I would most likely work TWTh or MTW. Splitting it up too much would make me less productive, and this way would give me long weekends every week.
