My manager is very respectful of my time, so if I get a request to work on something after hours then that means that it really is urgent and critical. I try my best to fix after-hours issues ASAP, but sometimes the problem is too big and it needs to wait for the whole team to coordinate on the following day. If the issue is urgent enough, then the entire team may be called in after hours rather than waiting.
