A popular company is making the weekend longer for some of its workers.

Amazon is experimenting with a 30-hour work week, USA Today reports. 

It’s a pilot program which will have a small team working a shorter week.

Instead of the 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. shift, a few dozen workers will work Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Additional flex hours will make up the rest of the hours.

Employees will still be eligible for benefits.

Many other companies offer a four-day work week but still require 40 hours of work.
