How flexible is your company when it comes to hours?

Very flexible - core hours are 8:30an-5:00pm however flexible based on having a conversation with your manager.
Midlevel, Sydney
The company encourages and promotes flexible working hours and work / life balance. Hours in the office are generally long, as long as you get what you need to get done, you have the flexibility to work around your life.
Midlevel, Sydney
Managers are open to negotiating flexible hours. Time in lieu is on the table for times when late nights have been frequent. Typical hours are standard.
Midlevel, Sydney
Moderately flexible. Construction industry standard
Graduate, Brisbane
Work hours are highly flexible and do not require onerous time spent at work.
Graduate, Sydney
Very flexible. I generally work 8:30-5:30 with some extra hours when things are busy and less hours when things are quiet
Graduate, Sydney
Company definitely is flexible with hours and working from home etc. but I am not sure such arrangements are available to me as a graduate who is better in the office and working face-to-face with other colleagues in order to gain the experience.
Graduate, Sydney
They are flexible as in you can go out during the day to get other stuff done if you need to, or take days off when you want, but the number of hours you have to do to get your job done is large so you will end up making it up somewhere.
Graduate, Port Macquarie
The hours can be quite long. I have spent several nights at the office until 9 or 10pm trying to meet a deadline. They can also be flexible though, if you need to attend an appointment or leave early for personal reason I have never been questioned and have always been allowed to leave.
Graduate, Newcastle
The required number of hours to fulfill your role is significantly more than you're contractually bound to. This is an expectation within corporate environments that needs work and alignment.
Midlevel, Sydney
My area works much more achievable hours than other business units. I might stay back till 8 or 9pm but only during a short crunch period. Other than that 5-6pm.
Graduate, Melbourne
I signed up for 8.30 to 5 and generally work from 8 to 5. Still can't complain.
Graduate, Brisbane
The company is very flexible unless you work on the construction sites (They have strict, long hours due to the nature of the work). The office is fine as long as you do your work and are seen turning up.
Graduate, Sydney
My contract specifies a number of hours however during my first few weeks I was told that in the office I had to bump up my hours because I had to prove myself to the team.
Graduate, Brisbane
Long, 12 hour days, usually 6 days a week. However can leave early work load dependent
Graduate, sydney
As I work on site, I work 7am to 4pm. My work hours are flexible, if I need to leave for an appointment there is always no issues.
Graduate, Adelaide
Very flexible, no set times. Generally 8-6 type hours.
Graduate, Perth
Long hours are expected with no overtime and the salary does not cover these extended hours.
Graduate, Brisbane
The hours a flexible to an extent, but you must put a lot of hours to get your workload done.
Graduate, Brisbane
Very flexible with work hours; more important to complete the work
Graduate, Sydney
The flexibility is fantastic, however I am not happy by the culture in the construction industry of being frowned upon when you start after 7:30 and or finish before 5:30. This is not a Lendlease specific issue.
Graduate, Melbourne
Current work hours: Mon-Thurs 6:45am-6pm, Fri 6:45am-4:30pm, Every second Saturday 8am-2pm
Graduate, Melbourne
I know this is what I signed up for - however site hours are long and not compensated for in wages.
Graduate, Sydney
Not flexible and minimum weeks of 60hrs.
Midlevel, Sydney
I really only work the standard 7.5 hours most days (although I do realise I'm in the minority and am not complacent, I know I'll have to bump up my hours when work gets busier). They don't ever expect you to work overtime. Just be efficient and get your work done.
Graduate, Sydney
I work a lot of hours. However this appears to be normal among my team. I feel obligated to work long hours like my colleagues.
Graduate, Melbourne
7am-6pm most days, shorter day saturday, some saturdays off but it has been busy lately as the project is winding down. Reasonably flexible otherwise where required
Graduate, Sydney
I work from 7-7. Previously I've worked every day in the month on average 12/13 hours per day.
Midlevel, Sydney
Not really flexible at all if you're a site engineer. 7am - 5:30pm mid week, plus a Saturday roster - you'll do every 2nd Saturday approx.
Graduate, Sydney
Fairly flexible, it depends on what part of the business you work in.
Graduate, Sydney
Company is flexible. Line manager is great. Generally I am in the office from 7 until 6pm at night. The day goes fast, and there isn't enough hours in the day to get it all done.
Graduate, Melbourne
I work 6.30 to 6-7. I believe my hours are too long compared to being paid for only 8. My supervisor is great with flexibility of hours, however very reasonable.
Graduate, Sydney
Minimum 10 hours per day and have a Saturday roster. Do not receive any overtime.
Graduate, Newcastle
Hours are the main downfall of my position, there is not a lot of flexibility when it comes to weekly hours, you are expected to work at least 7-5.30 daily as well as selected Saturdays when the contract only states a 38hr week.
Graduate, Newcastle
Work is flexible but the nature of the work requires lots of face time on site.
Graduate, Melbourne
Very flexible. I generally work 8:30-5/5:30 on a quiet week. If it's busy around end of financial year or end of month, possibly later and we may get dinner at the office. I'm very lucky in the particular department that I am in in terms of working hours compared to the other graduates.
Graduate, Sydney
Averaging in excess of 60hrs per week. Company is flexible with hours however workload does not allow for flexibility.
Graduate, Port Macquarie
Could be a lot better. I spend 10 hours on site and the commute is pretty far. However, when I need a few hours to do personal stuff (and don't have something pressing to do) nobody minds if I disappear for a bit.
Graduate, Sydney
Work long hours, including every second Saturday currently. they can be flexible if you have a reason like as appointment etc.
Graduate, Melbourne
Work hours are relatively long 7am-4:30pm sometimes even skipping lunch breaks (Including some Saturdays). I haven't really needed much flexibility
Graduate, Sydney
Good working hours, compared to other companies in the industry. Don't have to work overtime often. Flexible start/finish times.
