I’m a teacher, school is from 8:55-3:05 so no flex there.

I’m usually at school around 8-815 and leave by 430. I do marking/lesson planning in the evenings and on weekends.

I work 9-5 with a 30 minute lunch break, on Fridays we finish an hour early.

I have some flexibility depending on my work for the day; certain tasks require 9-5 cover, for example. Sometimes my role might require me to visit customers and those hours could be long/involve out of hours travel or weekend work, but none of that happens often.

My hours are 8:30am to 5pm Monday to Friday. Due to all of the roadworks on my commute, however, I leave for work early and arrive by 8am every morning (but if I leave like 10 minutes later I risk being late – go figure). The extra 2.5+ hours I do a week don’t really count as time in lieu, but if I ever need to leave work early (ie doctors appointment) my boss doesn’t dock my pay or make me use sick/annual leave. My hours aren’t really flexible – I work in a small office (2 full timers, 1 part timer and my boss) so someone always has to be here during business hours to answer the phone.

I’m due with our first in early July, so I’ll be going on maternity leave in June and don’t plan to return to this position. The office is around an hour away from where we live, so it’s just not practical with a baby/child who will be in daycare so I can return to work – if they need to go home sick, I’ll be at least an hour away. Time to find something closer whilst I’m on mat leave.

When I get there to when I leave. My job is very very very demanding at certain parts of the month/year and can be upwards of 60-70 hours per week, in the office and at home, days, nights and weekends. So when it isn’t demanding, I may work only 35-40 hours per week. But, everyone at my company has access to me 24/7, all managers cell numbers are shared and we get a phone allotment. I have maybe taken one vacation or day off that I actually didn’t answer emails or a phone call. While some months can be exahusting, the flexibility during the other months definitely makes up for it! I know when I’m gonna be busy and plan life around it!

Just started a job with sweet 12 hour shifts (nurse). It’s 6:45-7:15 (I work nights). 3 days a week. I pick the days, but mostly do Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. This leaves me more time for my Master’s Degree program. 

Had been salaried for the previous 12 years doing M-F 0800-4:30. 

I think I like this better

I’m a nurse manager.  I can flex my hours a little.  Sometimes I work 7-330, sometimes 8-430.  We have call for week, 5x a year.  It’s stinks but usually it’s not terrible.  I can leave early if I worked late another day.  Sometimes I work through lunch and leave early.  Under some instances I can work at home. It’s a great job for the most part. But we’re all on extra call hours this week for the Super Bowl. We also had a nursing strike 2 years ago that made for long hours.   Goes both ways!

Monday-Friday 7:30-4 are my normal hours. But I rarely leave at 4. Today I worked till 5:45. Just depends on how much work I have (I get paid overtime for anything over 40 hrs). My schedule is flexible in that I could leave at any time to go to a dentist appointment or run an errand, but I couldn’t choose to move my start time to 9 or leave half day every Thursday.
