Yup. I was told that I could have a "totally flexible work schedule" and
after working six weeks of 5am-2pm, I was then told that actually, the "core
hours" were 9-3. I paid a 12 year old to come and babysit my kids from
2:30-4:30 for the next six weeks until my next job started. My half-hour
commute home at 2:00 pm became an hour and a half long commute at 3:00.
Just not worth it and I didn't trust them to not change what they wanted the
next month.
