I would appreciate any feedback on the average hours worked per week for
salaried TW's.

Right now -- zero hours a week.

Otherwise, as a salaried TW it really depends on the project -- I have seldom worked more than 40 hours a week, but sometimes at crunchtime have worked a little more than that. I had a short-term project a few years ago where I had to learn to be a tester, learn to write test scripts, then supervise ten usability testers. I worked 60 hours a week, but at least was being paid overtime!
