How would you describe your work hours? In a typical week, how many hours do you spend in the office?
"The hours you work depends on the week. The branch could be very busy and you may end up staying late to ensure necessary daily tasks are completed. Organisation is key to helping this particular situation."Midlevel, Cork
"The company are very flexible with holiday time and choice time. Though they are quite easy going, long hours are to be expected."Entry level, Dublin
"I do shift work with an average ten hour day with one hour lunch. Weekend and shift work can lead to unsociable hours. Shifts are 5:00am-3:00pm, 7:30am-5:30pm or 1:00pm-11:00pm."Graduate, Dublin
"The hours can be long especially if we are busy. The company is pretty flexible though and if you need a shift changing then my managers will try their best to arrange it to suit."Graduate, Shannon
"I work from about 7:45am to 6:15pm. Some days I could be out of the office for 90% of the day and some days I could be in the office a bit more. So it evens out, you are never just sitting in the office bored."Graduate, Dublin
"Our office is open from 5:00am until 11:00pm, seven days a week. The shifts are quite varied, however we are given a mixture of times off and it is fairly broken down so everyone gets looked after."Retail, Graduate, Dublin
