    Answered . Generally, full-time is considered 35-40 hours per week. There isn't an absolute rule on what constitutes full-time or part-time status. Why does this matter? Have you been denied benefits that are only available to full-timers? Is there a published company policy on this? Are you subject to an employment contract or collective bargaining agreement. Email me some details and I'll try to help you. Good luck.
