Would you rather

Lets say you are scheduled from 9 am to 5 pm on a tuesday, but you find out you will have 4 hrs of zero work to be done between 11-3, would you rather if possible cram the work from 3-5 in during that break and then leave at 1 pm, or sit for 4 hrs and leave at 5pm?

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

    • It is paid by the hour, but your manager does not call to verify that you left when you said you did. You can fake your hours

      • I would never fake my hours. Seriously, don't do that. If you are getting paid by the hour I dont see the problem in just staying there not doing anything. Just sit there on your phone all day.

        • I dont fake my hours. I fudge the numbers a lil bit, but never do I add extra hrs

      • I personally wouldn't feel right about faking my hours and getting paid for hours I didn't work, nor just sitting on the clock after my work is done and getting paid for that (I'd rather just leave when my work is done if that is an option).

        • Im asking because of a real work situation that happened last week.

          Situation: work for photo company. Job is from 9-3:30. Be at school at 8 am. Do job from 8-11. Have a break until 3. Photograph one kid at 3:25. Then go home. I had to wait for that one kid so Isat around all day unprepared with nothing better to do. Normally we are there for the actual time. But i feel like my time isnt valued when a school does that.

          Im kinda just venting

          • Oh, okay, I see! Have you discussed any of this with your boss? How you spend so many hours doing nothing in between?
