Pseudo-flexible working hours suck. I get the "choice" to start work between 7:30-9:30 AM. I'm a night owl so waking up at 6AM is not an option. Why can't they just allow to start at 10AM and finish at 6:30PM? Between 7:30 & 9:30 is peak rush hour and I'm bound to lose 1h30 in traffic for 30km (normally it would take half an hour) and start my workday pissed off.

    Society is built wrong and Night Owls are at a great disadvantage due to that.

    I'm guessing one of the higher ups likes to start at 7:30.

    Sounds very like my last work place. This was just a fake for the job description, to catch few applications. "Flexible work hours" next to "family".

    @preezer Can't remember seeing you at our company xD

    We have applications running with exactly that...

    Flexible hours ? start at max 8am. (before is allowed but not paid)

    you are also allowed to work longer (but again not paid)... So flexible :'(

    you'd think our field would be really accepting of night owls. managers just love to exert control too much to give us that kind of freedom
