if I am filing for unemployment and worked 60 hours some weeks should I put 60 or the standard 40 full time?

I would check with the unemployment office, as rules vary from place to place. My first instinct would say whatever you averaged over the last 3-6 months.

Depending on your state, it doesn't matter how many hours you worked. They base your unemployment benefits by how much you earned over the last four quarters of a year that you worked. The more you earned, the better benefits you get. Matter not the hours.
