"I work 9.00 am to 5.15 pm Monday to Thursday and then 9.00 am to 4.00 pm on Friday. The company is semi-flexible depending on your role and will work around things like doctors' appointments."
Finance, Placement Student, Wokingham, UK
"I mainly worked 9.00 am to 5.00 pm but was allowed flexibility when I had a good reason and arranged it with my manager."
Distribution, Placement Student, Leeds
"The hours are incredibly flexible. I can finish at 4.00 pm on Fridays, work from home when necessary and leave for appointments if I need to."
Placement Student, Maidenhead
"My working hours are 8.45 am to 5.00 pm. However, we have flexi-time so I am able to work these hours around my personal life. As I commute, my manager has been very supportive of me coming in early and leaving early to miss the traffic."
Placement Student, High Wycombe


"I work 8:00am-4:00pm with half an hour for lunch. I find that my hours are relatively flexible; once you are settled in you can come in at 10:00am (assuming you don't have any meetings) and work till 6:00pm instead. I am expected to work longer hours where necessary to get tasks completed."
Placement Student, Leeds
"I work 37 hours a week. There are flexi-hours, so you can do hours whenever you like as long as you're in the office 10:00am-2:00pm and do your 37 hours a week."
Placement Student, Leeds
"I work a standard 9:00am-5:30pm that is expected. I often stay until about 6:00pm, sometimes later - however, this is not generally encouraged."
Placement Student, Maidenhead
"I work from 8:00am-4:30pm Monday to Thursday which is great if you have plans on weekday evenings and on Friday I work is 8:00am-1:00pm, which is fantastic, especially if you want to go away for the weekend."
Placement Student, Blackpool
"I work 8:45am-5:00pm with a 45 minute lunch. Flexi-time is encouraged, and so far I have not had to work over the set working hours. There are opportunities to work from home too."
Placement Student, High Wycombe
"My normal working hours are 8:45am-5:00pm, with the core hours being 10:00am-3:00pm, however I am sometimes in early to set up for the projects that I run. The company offer flexible working where I can flex my time and leave earlier on one day if I have made the hours up earlier in the week."
Placement Student, High Wycombe
"I work 9:00am-5:00pm, however, this time is flexi-time which means that if I get the bus to work, I don't need to worry as much about being late, and can come in early, and this works much better for me (and other employees)."
Placement Student, Leeds


"We have flexi-time with the company which is useful. I generally start at 8:15am and finish at around 5:00pm."
Intern, High Wycombd
"I typically work from 8:45am-5:00pm and to 4:00pm on a Friday. We also have a flexi-time, so that we are able to change this in agreement with the manager."
Human Resources, Intern, High Wycombe
"There are no crazy hours at Johnson & Johnson; my managers wouldn't allow long hours as it is not what is necessarily expected of you."
Supply Chain, Intern, Maidenhead
"I work from 9:00am to 5:30pm Monday to Thursday and from 9:00am to 4:00pm on Fridays. You are not expected to stay late, and it is completely up to your own discretion. I have found that some days you will stay late if you have work that needs completing."
Marketing, Intern, Maidenhead
"I work 9:00am to 5:00pm in the office on most days. However, I have regularly been out of the office in meetings, conferences, working from home, hospital visits, etc."
Marketing, Intern, Wokingham
"I work from 9:00am to 5:30pm, but the hours here are flexible, so that we can arrive later without it being a problem, and we just have to be prepared to stay late occasionally if something needs finishing."
Finance, Intern, Maidenhead
"All employees at Janssen are required to work 37 hours a week, however, the company offers employees flexi-time so if I needed to make an appointment in the morning, I am able to make up the time later in the week. This is a positive for me as it gives me great flexibility. If I am very busy at work, I am happy to stay later to get the work done!"
Marketing, Intern, High Wycombe
"Johnson & Johnson has a flexible hour scheme that you can utilise, which allows you to work around times that suit you, so long as you work 38 hours during the week."
Intern, High Wycombe
