The BeginDay and EndDay properties in this class specify a time window when a job should be started and have no effect on when the job finishes. The timer service will pick a random time between the begin and end and will start the job at that time. This feature is primarily used for resource-intensive jobs that run on multiple computers in the farm. The randomized start time ensures that they do not all start simultaneously, which could adversely affect server availability. To start the job at a precise time, the begin and end values for the schedule should be identical.
