    Technically I don’t have a “set time” that I have to be there, but I try to aim for 7:30am, 8 at the latest. I love that they’re flexible, as most people have long commutes.

    @StL.Ashley:  I think you need an option for telecomuting and flexible start time.

    I have complete freedom to set my own schedule, but usually I try to come in by 9-9:30.

    Well, right now I am a student so my classes are all different times, but when I graduate pretty much everywhere around here works 7-7 shifts for nurses.

    Technically 8 but we’re consistently 15-30 minutes late everyday. We have a really crappy commute thats pretty much all highway so it’s totally unpredictable. That, and I need my Starbucks every morning. It’s a good thing our office is flexible or we would have been canned a long time ago.

    Hardcore 9 to 5! I think cities in different time zones than EST tend to have earlier start times, so their hours more closely match the east coast. When I lived in Seattle we started work at 7:30AM and got off early. I think I’d prefer that!

    No set time. I usually roll in around 8:30 and there’s a few people here then. The majority come in between 9 and 10.

    I start work at 7am sharp; which means that I need to be in the office by 6:50 at the absolutel latest, and on Mondays, when I conduct a weekly meeting, I need to be in by 6:40 or before.  BUT, I’m off work at 3:30 in the afternoon which is always nice because I leave for work and get home before the traffic builds (which is infamous in the SF bay area)


    ETA: I do get to wear jeans and t-shirts to work too which is awesome- Yay construction 🙂

    Between 6 am and 7 am depending on which job site I’m on. I have to wear jeans and it sucks because jeans + outdoors = sweaty as hell

    I can get in any time between 6:30 and 9:30am, but after 9:30 is considered late.  My average is 8:40.  I’m a lawyer in the public sector, but among my private sector friends, I’d say 10-10:30 is more the norm.
