Wow you sure have outdated views on what it means to work remote. I have been working remote last fourteen years and have never played with kids, eating bon bons, running errands, and having a party while working lol. I run my own medical billing business and raised two kids, worked flexible hours, took two vacations per year and never once have I ever had any clients complain that my work is not up to par. I even hire remote billers because people tend to work smarter without distractions of long commute and insufferable work colleagues. As long as the work gets done I dont care if my remote workers have the TV on, or music playing in the background. Just my two cents. On average I work between 35-50 hours per week working five or six days per week. Sometimes I work in mornings and sometime I prefer working late afternoon till late night.

It depends. When things are slow, I may be working only 4-5 hours a day.

But when it's time to cram, it may go up to 12 hours a day and including weekends.

I've never counted my hours. I do the work in the time the work requires.

With employers being such control freaks these days, I’m surprised there are any remote positions left. They can’t Maintain the control to the high degree they want over remote employees

I work from home once or twice a week now and tend to work 10 hours or so on those fats. On days Iím in the office Iím closer to 8 due to commute times. So I work more from home and get more done.

I worked exclusively from home for a while and would work around the clock. Like 80-100 hour weeks were the norm but I also worked for a startup where that was the culture.

Actually statistics overall show that more people work from home now than ever before, in the US at least. People want employees who take ownership/are autonomous.

I can get everything done in 20 hours per week regardless of whether I am in the office or working remotely. I am surprised flex scheduling and working remotely isn't more commonplace. Even doctors will look at imaging results and charts while out of the office/hospital nowadays since everything is computerized. And we certainly don't need to have strict 8-5 or 9-5 schedules for many office jobs.

What difference does it make? I'm paid for my output, not input.
