How would you describe your work hours? In a typical week, how many hours do you spend in the office?


"SQS business is a project driven company. This means there is always a deadline. Sometimes but not often you may need to work extra but this is always recognised."
Midlevel, Dublin
"Nine to five is the standard, extra hours are expected at certain stages of projects but you are aware of when its required."
Entry level, Dublin
"I work a 40 hour week (9:00am - 5:30/6:00pm). Flexibility depends on the client site you are working on and their needs."
Graduate, Dublin
"As a consultancy firm, the working hours can vary depending on the client site you will be working on. The minimum working hours each week is 40, but consultants may be asked to do overtime. Some sites may offer flexi-time, while others will strictly be 8:30am-5:30pm."
Entry level, Dublin
"A flexi-time system is in operation which allows employees to start work any time from 7:00am to 10:00am each day."
Graduate, Dublin
"We generally work 9:00am-5:30pm, but in cases where the company we are in are coming up to a deadline, we may be required to put in extra hours and work later."
Graduate, Dublin
"We are client based so office hours have to be kept. There is always a little lee-way for one off or infrequent occasions - e.g. come in early, leave early."
Midlevel, Dublin
"Work hours usually reflect those of the clients. Currently I am working 8:00am-5:00pm Monday to Friday but other colleagues may be asked to start earlier if they are working with clients overseas or later depending on the client."
Graduate, Belfast
