"My work hours were standard and my employer was very understanding if any situations arose where I may have been late or had to leave early."
Graduate, Dublin
"The hours were quite flexible with good lunch hours and overtime was optional so you just do what you can."
Graduate, Kilkenny
"PwC has always been flexible if I need to be somewhere for an appointment at a certain time. The overtime is not too bad and I don't mind doing it when I need to."
Dublin
"The hours are tough during the busy season but are great apart from that. The firm is very flexible if you have to come in late or leave early etc."
Graduate, Dublin
"The hours are consistent when you're in the office but can be quite long when you're on a client's site."
Wexford
"The company is very flexible. I play a lot of football that involves mid-week matches so I'm allowed to start and finish earlier."
Graduate, Dublin
"The working hours are from 9.00 am to 5.30 pm with an hour for lunch and a 15-minute tea break. You can choose to work at home in some circumstances. The most important thing is to ensure that projects are completed in a professional manner within the timeline given."
Graduate, Dublin
"I worked 9.00 am to 5.30 pm, which was completely normal. We got off at 3.00 pm on Fridays in July and August. This was a huge perk to have as it made a difference to finish up early on a Friday."
Entry level, Dublin

"Generally, the work hours were 9.00 am – 5.30 pm and maybe a little later during peak season. My employer was very flexible regarding hours if I had an appointment I had to keep."
Intern, Dublin
"I worked 9.00 am – 5.30 pm Monday to Friday. During the months of July and August we could take advantage of the 3.00 pm finish time on Fridays, which was fantastic!"
Intern, Dublin
"Long. I would prefer flexi-time ie achieve hours during the day/week when it suits you without being confined to core hours of at least 9.00 am – 5.30 pm."
Graduate, Dublin
"Overtime is a must on certain jobs. However, it's usually fine if you need to leave early or come in late for any reason – they're fairly accepting of it."
Graduate, Waterford
"The typical working day is 9.00 am – 5.30 pm with one and a quarter hours for lunch and a 15-minute tea break. The company are very flexible when it comes to finishing early when necessary as they trust that you will make the time back up."
Graduate, Dublin
"My manager recognised that I might need to get away early on nights where I had training and so would accommodate this."
Intern, Dublin
"I have been relatively happy with my hours so far but, during peak times, I may be expected to work from 8.30 am until 10.00 pm or 11.00 pm on some nights."
Dublin
"Work hours are 9.00 am – 5.30 pm, which I am very happy with, especially because I have to attend lectures and study. Also, if you want to leave early you can sometimes come in early."
Graduate, Dublin
"It's mainly 9.00 am – 5.30 pm but you can leave early if you need to so long as you make up that time in the morning or at another time."
