"I work a 37.5 hour week Monday to Friday and there is plenty of flexibility within this as long as I work my hours each week."
HR, Graduate, Newbury
"The operation works in shifts. All of my shifts are between Monday and Friday but this may not be the case for everyone. There is flexibility in your hours but it's not actually flexi-time."
Graduate, Chineham, Basingstoke.
"The employer is flexible but expects you to be flexible in return. You work until the job is done (sometimes this means finishing early, but often late) and you get out what you put in."
Graduate, Thatcham, Berkshire
"Gist is flexible with hours to help you meet special occasions but there may periods of working nights as well, though these are subject to agreement."
Graduate, Thatcham


"The employer at my current site is pretty flexible with hours. However, previous sites have involved fixed shift patterns such as four-on-four-off 12-hour days. You will also be expected to work weekends and extra hours at peak times such a Christmas. This is the same for everyone."
Graduate, Crewe
"This comes down to your manager and location. My hours have been the standard 9.00 am to 5.00 pm for the past few months but I have done some night shifts. The level of flexibility depends on your manager."
Graduate, Prefer not to say
