Going to Graduate School with a Full Time job

I graduated in 2010 with a CS degree and have been working at my current position since April. The company has recently said that they would support me if I decide to go to grad school (financially and time-wise), so I'm looking into programs I could apply to.
I work very closely to where I went to college, so I'm looking at the CS program there. They have a program that is specifically designed for people working full time, with classes being all day Friday or Saturday, but the courses I would take have been decided for me. There is also a Masters program that I could apply to which would require 31 credits.
My question is, does anyone have experience working full time and going to graduate school? Is that going to be too much work to handle? I would definitely like to have this opportunity especially since I would be supported by my company, so is graduate school really that time consuming (it seems about 8 hours of classes per week is the norm? plus outside effort obviously)?
