    They're all either low-end (desktop support, helpdesk, etc, where you're paid by the hour), or high-end (systems engineer where you work on projects, but are no longer responsible for operations).

    After you get past the former, but haven't advanced to be the latter yet, you're probably going to have to do some on call work.

    Government Jobs ( County, City Halls, School Districts, Universities etc ) some private software companies and health clinic have 9 to 5 IT jobs
    Pay is alright as long as you don't expect a big high paycheck
    Projects are interesting sometimes
    Its really all company dependent

    DoD jobs. Find a contractor or GS gig, they rarely work overtime from what I've seen.

    Can confirm. I am a DoD contractor and I rarely work overtime. It actually has to be submitted to our program manager with justification before they will even consider.

    I'm doing helpdesk at a local community college and do 9 to 5 mostly. Sometimes I come in few hours late and stay few more hours. You wouldn't want to make a career out of college helpdesk though. Super repetitive and low pay.

    Sounds just about right I did help desk for a school district as well it was also 9 to 5. The pay was 20 an hour its okay for entry level but Im about to accept a Level 2 Computer Support position ( Desktop support pretty much...) pay is better and same hours ( 9 to 5 no weekend or on call )but as most people would see on this thread best places for 9 to 5 IT jobs are in government/public sector

    I would be interested in knowing if any private sector IT employee can pinch in here who works 9 to 5 and tell us what they do and how much they get paid?

    I'd like some info on this as well. Being on call (maybe in a rotation) and getting called out on occasion wouldn't kill me for a while, especially if I was gaining experience and learning a lot...but constant regular overnights, like 11p-7a would be hideous.

    I work 8-5 most of the time, though with projects I do have to work some late nights and weekends, due to cutover availability for my clients. Network Engineer for a small VAR.
