My current job is 36 hours or less a week. I love my current job and my compensation is in the higher side of the national average but it’s not enough to get rid of debt quickly. I’m thinking about getting a second job working nights/weekends at an urgent care so I can pay off my mortgage and student loans in a couple years vs 10+ years.
I had hoped my current clinic would transition towards a primary care + extended hours urgent care so I could just work 60 hours where I’m at but they’re not interested in investing in the extra support staff to cover the hours.
For those working 60 or more hours a week how is your home life? I only plan on working 2 jobs for 2-5 years, the doctor I work with works over 80 hours a week and outside of not sleeping at home a few nights a week has dinner with the family over half the days in a week and half of the day most weekends. I don’t feel like that’s ideal but our lives would be much less stressful without debt hanging over our heads.
