What is 9-5?


a typical job that includes waking up in the morning, going to work, and coming home at night

"He never felt right holding down a 9-5 it made the ends meet but it never made him feel alive"

See Alley


A traditional eight hour day shift.

In some companies, the 9-5 is really 8:30-5 or 9-5:30. It's an extra half hour because of an unpaid 30 minute lunch break. In companies where you're paid by the hour, it's so you don't lose out on 30 minutes of pay. In ones where you're paid by the year, it's pretty much squeazing the extra half hour out of you in order to make up for the 30 minute lunch.

It generally refers to working Monday through Friday but in modern times where services are expected to be availalble durring non business hours, evening and weekend shifts are becomming an increasingly required demand of employees.

I used to work the traditional Mon-Fri 9-5 day shift but they've got me working weekends in the evenings now.
