"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."
"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."
