I work part time while I’m in college. Supposed to be there at 4pm, but I am usually there around 3-3:15pm. I hate being late to anything. Only once ever have I been late to work, I was late by 15 minutes due to a fatal accident on the freeway and traffic was crazy.

Need to clock in between 6:38 and 6:52 (6:45 clock in time). I usually leave my house around 6:25 and am waiting for the clock to turn to 6:38. It is great being 3 miles from work. I have so many co-workers I see running in around 6:51 (or later) trying to beat the clock. I don't get it. You know what time you need to be there. You know how long (on average) it takes to get there, so plan for it. I know of several that have been fired for being late more than 12 times in a year.

Hourly IT job in Texas, 8am to 5pm. Arrive about 755. Work until 5pm. Usually clock about 8-10 hours of OT per week from home. When I lived in NY, most jobs work 8am-4pm or 9am-5pm. Noticed that Texas law does not have paid breaks, so we work an extra hour.

It's been many years since I've been on a fixed schedule. I always arrive at work sometime between 7:45 and 8:15 am, but not having to be aware of the time makes for a relaxing morning. It's nice not having to worry about hitting any particular time and it's also nice to put in a long week and then bug out early on Friday, especially during the warmer months.

I work at a remote Military Staging yard. I get to work 30 minutes early and open up our metal shop and my office. The yard is operated by the Company I work for, A DOD Contractor. I like to sit and relax with a big cup of coffee before starting my day. The 6 other employees show up within a few minutes of our starting time most days.

Ditto. We don't have flex time but no one watches, so I aim for 15 early (7:45) and leave 15 early (4:45), and try to beat rush hour. Some days I miss leaving on time and will work until 5:30, just because I hate traffic that much.

I arrive at 0730-0735. Contract is 0755 to 1555hrs. I am a boss and if I do not arrive early enough to get a grasp of what's going on from the previous tour, then we all suffer.
