It looks like a red flag for me and I’m thinking thankyounext, but again it’s covid time... Thoughts?

Interviewed for an industry position last week and asked my interviewers what my hours would look like. They answered "uhh 40?" with a confused look. I explained to them my crazy hours in PA and why I wanted to ask, and they just laughed and said that no overtime is expected. Either public accounting really screwed up my view on work hours, or this is just an abnormally relaxed company.
