In the US, they expect you to be at the office or working in the field by 9 am and be done at 6 pm. If you are a remote, "home" based employee, they will monitor your computer activity and phone activity. They do this by calling you from a "private" number and monitoring when you logged into and out of their VPN on their company issued computer. They will randomly call you about 5 to 10 times a week from a private number. When you pick up the phone, nobody is there. When I first started working at Samsung, I received these random phone calls for about two weeks. So, I decided to stop answering because they were annoying. Then, I get a call from Samsung HR to inform me that my work hours were from 9 am to 6 pm, Monday through Friday. I said "ok, that is what I have been doing and what make you think I have not been doing that?" Samsung HR would not answer that question directly, but when I asked another employee, he told me that they monitor my computer and phone activity to make sure I am in my home office from 9 am to 6 pm daily. Since I have left the company, I no longer get these random calls.
Well in the beginning it started out from 7 to 3:30 in the afternoon and they said if you worked over it will be 3 days out the week so the time will be from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and it turned into 5 days a week not 3. We have people driving very far and to get off at 5:30 everyday people can't handle their business and pay bills like they want. All we ask for is to be off at 3:30 on Fridays that's it
50 hours/week but the expectation is 60 hours/week

Plenty of work hours to handle, shift differential to compensate assigned shift
If you go to school and are looking for a side job this is a great place to work.
