Do you work on a Sunday?

April 18, 2009 8:13pm CST
Our jobs or chosen career could sometimes demand a huge amount of our time. I know for a fact that a lot of people are slaves to their jobs and are even working on a Sunday to meet deadlines. Perhaps, to some, it could also be the schedule or the shift that they have been assigned to. To the workers and peeps who can relate, speak up and tell us your story.

Before under the previous management I have to bring some of my work at home and do it on Sundays but now I make it a point that Sunday should be my rest day and I have to do all those work from Monday until Saturday only.Even if we love our job so much we should have time for ourselves.

Well, i have to admit that i work on sundays sometimes though not all the time.Yes to meet deadlines or when bosses comes from the headoffices they want to utilize all the time they have irespective of the employeess needing a break.Honestly i hate working on sundays but sometimes i am a victim of it

I am very fortunate that I dont have to work on Sundays. we are closed Sundays. I do things at home that I dont get time to do durring the week like laundry and housework. I did work on sundays in previous jobs though and I hated it.

I used to work on Sundays for many many years. I worked in the restaurant industry first and of course they were open on Sundays so had to work which at the time was okay because I was still in school and that way I could have more hours than on a school night. I had various jobs after that and then went into retail and worked many Sundays. It became a real treat to have a Sunday off and a special treat to have the whole weekend off, which rarely happened. Now since I had spent so long working weekends I looked for something so I could be home in the evenings and off on weekends. I am off every Sunday but on occasion have to work a Saturday here and there, not too bad. I am enjoying it for sure.

It is a big NO NO to me to work on a Sunday. It is the only time to spend with my family and do some household chores. It is my day off need also to rest at least once in a week to refresh our mind and bodies of all the stress that our job causes us.
