Longer than the working day

8th July 2008 – 8.28 am

The Company has a flexi-time policy that allows for extended and shortened days, but we all essentially still work on the basis of an eight hour day that includes a thirty minute lunch break.

As such, when someone outside of the department draws up a day's test plan for us to complete that has a total of over eight-and-a-half hours of testing, without any contingency for set-up or power-down times, let alone changes that need to be made between individual testing periods, I consider it to be rather optimistic.

The words 'presumptuous' and 'insulting' also spring to mind, but those are not to be shared with the customer.
