Many of the women in this part of the world who have made inroad into paid employment are found in the banking sector with its built-in time demands which required them to spend long hours in the office despite the traditional gender-role socialization which force them to spend a lot of time on domestic responsibilities. Against this background, this study investigated work-family time conflict (time-based work interference with family and time-based family interference with work) relationship. Participants comprised 81 female bankers between the ages of 27 to 40 years (M=31.55) drawn from three branches of Fidelity bank in Enugu metropolis using Multi-stage sampling technique. Eight (8)-item Time-based Work Interference with Family and 6-item Time-based Family Interference with Work Scales drawn from Okonkwo (2011) 32-item Work-family Conflict Scale were administered. Correlational design was used. Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient revealed no relationship between time-based work interference with family and time-based family interference with work (p > .05). This result was discussed in the light of Role Strain Theory. It was concluded that time-based work interference with family was not related to time-based family interference with work among this segment of women. Thus, despite the long hours spent on job responsibilities, Nigerian female bankers still balanced their work time and family time.
