we are open 6 days a week, however my employees only work 5 days a week with rotating weekends off. It just NOT possible to have a high quality of life and a healthy work life balance if you are working 6 days a week.

But you schedule 6 days correct? Guess the thread question should of been how many days a week do you offer sercices.

after MANY years in the business, I schedule Monday - Friday residential. I know that SOMETHING is going to come up during the week so the last minute Realtor call or the job I could not get to because I ran late goes into Saturday. Sometimes I work Saturday, sometimes not but its good to have it available just in case.

Keep in mind that I usually book out 2-3 weeks in advance so the jobs that come up that need to be done right away I could not normally do.

5 days. I love my family. I’m also sick so I don’t know how long I’ll be able to work. I’m glad I have great employees.

Used to work 24/7 got smart and realized i was killing myself and my guys, now we work 5 days a week might work one or two saturdays a year out of necessity. Always thought id lose out not working weekends but actually busier than when we worked 7 days and making more money working 5 and me and my guys are alot happier.

I schedule 6 days a week but right now I'm lucky if I get 3 jobs a week. The rest of my time is just running around putting out fires for people.

6-9 hours per day.....it averages out to close to 8 hours per day. It all just depends on what the size of the jobs are.
