Walt 34: I did that work from about 79-86. Contracted for FPO in DC area. It is a good job but I envy how you can ONLY work 32 hours a week. I was forever getting roped into overtime - limited to 12 hour shifts. Loved it when we got snowed in and actually had to work 16 hour shifts as an exception. At that time we could not find enough people to work full or part time - Security Clearance and Armed status kept many away - although, as you said, the money was good.

The security clearance took about four or five months to come through and that was a bit frustrating. The 12-hour max must be some federal regulation since that applies here too.

The company's targeted work week is 32 hours for the full-timers so if somebody gets sick the result will not be overtime for the fill-in. But when I started looking for a job a three or four day work week was exactly what I had in mind so this works out great.

I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.
