    Are there perm jobs with flexible starting time ?

    I am interviewing for this perm job in London and when I hinted to this agent about wanting to start at 9.30 or 10 AM, it was met with utter surprise: HOW DARE YOU CHALLENGE THE 9-5 SLAVE ROUTINE!. No work from home either and this is a mid/senior level dev job. The perm mindset is so hierarchic it is sickening.

    You wonder why the company has the vacancy?

    Turn down the role stating clearly why, and interview elsewhere if flexiblity is important to you.

      Turn up on time, when manager meets you ask if you can use the loo

      Go to the loo, but sneak out of the building and leave them wondering where you are

        I tend not to take much notice of what the agent thinks the working arrangements are. I would do the interview and, if it's going well, you raise the question about working hours flexibility. If the interviewing manager/HR drone balks then you know it's not going to work for you.

          Exactly. The agent is looking to filter out CVs. The OP needs to get through the filter and explore this with the employer once they are convinced that the OP is the right candidate.

            Have a wank at the desk at 9am. When they ask why are you doing it, tell them you have to do your 9am wank at work because their strict working hours.
