1. When does everyone get up in the morning for work?
--I have been arising at 4 a.m.
2. If you drive to an office, how many miles is your commute?
--My drive is 20 miles to and from. It takes me an hour and 20 minutes to
get home after Labor Day. Less than an hour during the summer.
3. How long is your work day?
--Our official hours are 8:30 to 5:30. I work from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
1. I've been getting up 5:00 to 6:00 each day.
2. The commute was 30 miles total, and for the last few years about half
that. Commuting time was 40 minutes one way, and about half that after the
office moved. Then I was kicked to the curb.
With the current contract it may take 45 minutes to drive 30 miles, and I
try to limit that to one day each week. The project manager gave me the
green light for as much telecommute as I needed. Nice gig, but will not go
3. The work day is up to me on this contract. I try to work 8am til 3pm
when I drive in.
Previously I worked 9 or 10 hour days for megacorp.
Commute time is very important to me. I've been fortunate the last ten
years, working steadily and having a shorter drive than many who replied.
Things have changed this year and last, so I may be hitting a rough patch
