Whether it is a WFH or in person type role, I believe that 4-10's reign supreme over the traditional 5 8's. To put myself mentally back into the environment of having to drive to the shop and be there in person to wrench, most of my 5 8's ultimately did turn into 10 hour days, where I was simply waiting for the traffic to die down before heading home for the evening. Once you're in the zone and working, the additional two hours can come and go without even knowing it. Allowing the flexibility of the third day off allows more time to recharge which is an added bonus.
