    Thank goodness where I work utilizes an electronic system where you (as an employee) get a number and use it to punch in and out.

    Doesn't change the fact that I often forget to clock in or out and then have to go back later and write my times in - defeating the purpose of the convenience of the electronic system. :rolli:

    I've had paper and electronic. Since it was, and is, government-related, *we* get to bill down to the 10th of an hour! Yes thats right, the 10th of an hour. Every six minutes. Yes sir. Yippers.

    Anyways, most of our work is usually hours long, so today might read like 4.5 hours for program 1, 2.5 hours for program 2, 1 hr for program 3.

    At the end of the work day though isn't work the last thing you want to be thinking about?


    actually it wasn't even my idea, it was a common thing for employees to do at a job i had a long time ago, and i've just used it again. and yeah, a little, but i think in some ways it was great, like HAH 60 DOLLARS FOR ME TODAY lol

    J and I hate timesheets. I hate micromanagement of anything.

    I worked at a CPA firm where we had to do it down to 7.5 minute increments (8ths). It was horrible.
    Now I work internally and we still do timesheets, even though we aren't billing out to clients. I mean, I understand the time budgeting, but really?

    I technically must bill 40 hours a week (or "100%") across several different contracts, but I often work more (and sometimes less) than that. It doesn't really matter how much I work in total, though, since I must bill 100%.

    So, I'm forced to write something down that meets my contractual obligations and just maintain a "that's good enough" mentality about it


    If I were at one of those places that charges in 15 minute intervals, I'd probably just.. lie about it.

    I had to do some for this random job I had on campus a year ago. To be honest, the person I was making them for was also an extreme P like myself, and was totally cool with me making them up as I went along...just as long as they seemed logically consistent, I could do so.

    I do mine as I go (write it up when I come and go), but then I do alot of on call and over time. There's no frakkin' way I could keep track otherwise. When I was doing rotating rosters, I'd use my phone organisor.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    J leaning P -- I have to do them but the good thing is, they know I'm a spaz about it and am only doing it to please them and whatever I write on there may or may not be correct. So half the time I turn mine in and get back an email, um, my records show you were off on Tuesday, were you off on Tuesday? and I'll say it wouldn't surprise me, and they go in and fix it. They don't need to ask my permission anymore to go into my time card, they can write anything they want in there because I don't care.

    Ive no interest in time sheets. When I start my internship as a lawyer, I'll have to develop a strategy of dealing with it. So far, I've avoided the problem all together. In the work force, I've always thought ahead and attacked the issue days before scheduling is processed. This is one of the few subjects in which I'm forced to think ahead, otherwise I'd just clock in and move on.
