I'm a Project Manager working with a UK based LSP. While I was inerviewing for this position, 2 years back, I was told that I might have to work occasionally, out of office hours if the project requires.
Being a Project Manager, I understand that my day never ends at 5 PM or the moment I finish working for 8 hours, it could and can be extended any time there's a issue or improvement needed in the project .
It has been 2.6 yrs here in the role, there have been multiple instance where I have had to work out of my office hours, everyday including weekends - this I know is not healthy and thus, while I'm currently interviewing with other companies for multiple reasons, want to know your opinion if I should ask the following question to my next interviewer or not?
How many hours a week do you someone putting in this role? I know, we usually have a 40 hour week, but, being a Project Manager, there could be need of working extra, how much will an ideal candidate work for in this role?
I would love to hear your opinion and view points on this! If you think I should ask this question another way, please do suggest!

Growing my resume!
Do you consider courses/professional certificates on Coursera to be valuable and/or worth the time? I have degrees, but there are some certifications that I feel would bulk my resume if Coursera is respected.

Is anyone else experiencing significant challenges in their job search these days?
As a creative director who left their job earlier this year, I've been receiving rejection emails left and right from automated systems. Am I the only one facing this, or is there something unique happening in the job market?

to add to the 4 months notice denied PTO
I am loyal and been with the company for more than 25 years ; good attendance and employee of the month and season too.
I think he should cut me a slack and approve it. ( still on the works but made me really upset )
