How flexible is your company when it comes to hours?
95% of the time it's flexible - do your 38 hours a week, and you're free to do things like work early one day, finish early another. When there are deadlines you're expected to work a little longer to meet it, but that's rare.

I generally work from 7.30-8.30am until 3.30-4.30pm (8 hrs can be taken from roughly 7am-5pm, outside this is fine however assistance is more limited), which works really well for me because I have a relatively long commute and depending on trains running on time, as well as having things outside of work during the week, this flexibility allows me to get to work and complete my hours comfortably.

The company is extremely flexible (working from home is normal here) and they have also been great about working at the Victorian site (my home state) if needed.
Graduate, Adelaide
office hours are flexible (within reason) and most managers are happy to negotiate hours around you needs and the company's requirements.
Graduate, Adelaide
Very flexible! Start work whenever I want, finish whenever I want and take my breaks whenever I want. I am trusted to complete the work that is assigned to me in a timely manner according to my skill level.

Graduate, Cairns
The company is very flexible with hours. With a set requirement of 38 hours these hours can be either worked from home or office and can be at different times to the normal 8-5 working day.
Graduate, Melbouurne
We do 38 per week. Start time is flexible from 6am to 10am. We only need to complete daily hours. We can also work extra hours through the week to either leave early to work 4 days. Working from home is also an option if we have something important to do during the day.

38 hour week flexi hours could be improved upon, e.g. a flexi day off per month would be excellent.

8.30-4.45, keep very standard hours. Company is very flexible with hours and the focus is on making sure you are ok with them and not having too much overtime, and that the work gets done not necessarily if you come in at 8.45 on the dot or anything
Graduate, Canberra
8 hours per day, on the dot.

Very flexible, so long as at work within the core hours of 10am-3pm. Other than that, just need to do at least 38 hours a week and get tasks completed.
Graduate, Adeliade
Flexible working hours. I don't know what happens when SHTF, sounds like it'll be a lot of overtime.
Graduate, Adelaide
I'm encouraged to only work 8 hours a day and "do my work at work, not at home." The company seems focussed on maximizing a work-life balance. This was incredibly refreshing after University.
