The use of time on a daily, weekly and middle-term basis is a wellestablished method to grasp how agents make sense of a given social condition. In relation to the increasing flexibility in the labour market, such an approach provides insights which would go otherwise unnoticed, such as the alternation between the sense of precariousness and the feeling of delaying adulthood among young flexible workers. After highlighting briefly the assumptions at the basis of the use and meanings of time in post-industrial societies, I look at empirical data collected by interviewing a sample of agency- workers, since this is a radical form of atypical employment.
