I have worked salary and hourly jobs but without knowing what your friend does, it might be hard to explain. I work in commercial construction and am salaried but this is my spin on your question and that's flexibility.
Yes, I sometimes have to work over 40 hours and not get paid for it but I often times don't have to work 40 hours and still get paid. In addition, if I need to leave early or take the morning or afternoon off or even the full day, I can do that and not get penalized. My boss has a standing rule and I have the same rule for my staff: I don't care when you are here as long as you get your work done and I don't have to ask you for it.
