Hello!
I'm on west coast & a possible job opportunity I'm interested in works east coast hours. Company prides themselves on being remote & having talent everywhere. Thoughts on ways to directly ask about their expectations on work hours (i.e. requiring every1 to be logged on at X time vs. flexibility, knowing there may be outliers like meetings, etc.?)
Regardless of me not being a morning person, I would hope there is a shared feeling that those expectations might not be sustainable.

If you live in the west coast and choose to work for an east coast company by choice, you need to work east coast hours. It’s not their fault you don’t live in their time zone. If you work in an industry that doesn’t really matter what time you work, then it shouldn’t be an issue. No problems asking about the schedules during the interviews.

For whatever it’s worth I have a few colleagues on the west coast who work our east coast hours. They have said they love it - yeah, mornings are hard, but they get to sign off around 3 PM everyday.

Be straightforward and ask about their expectations and flexibility. Based off their response you can determine if that works for you. Good luck!

Feeling totally used and need advice. Got in the final for what would have been a dream job (not now of course) and was asked to complete a pretty robust assignment for a launch strategy for a startup. I did everything, over-delivered really, a framework, launch strategy, platform analysis, and even an influencer piece (at their request). I had to present via Skype to the hiring manager and leadership. Only the hiring manager showed up. It caught me off guard (I know, rookie mistake) CONT’D...
