I think it would be cool for the most part to work at home but it would be pretty lonely too. It would make alot of things easier as fas as your schedule would go, but then again there are alot of things that you can do while you're at the jobsite like copying, printing, making calls, etc. that would be alot easier when you're there.

Oh yes. I would definitely do it but I need to have an office equipment but if there are good paying jobs that will allow me to work from home and with good incentives and benefits I would really grab that opportunity. Although, I'm happy with my offline work and contended with my salary. It is just that when you're at home you handle your time and you can do a lot of things plus, I can see my family.

I almost had the chance to do half of my job at home but with budget cuts in our state, that chance vanished pretty quick. Yes, it would help alot to have office equipment & all of that to work at home. I'm one of the luckier ones cause I can connect to our office network from home.

Maybe in a couple years when my kids bigger. Right now not really a good idea, too many distraction.

I know what you're talking about. My kids are older (17, 11, 9 & 5 yrs old) but when I try to work at home, it's still hard not to get distracted by them.

I think that is a great idea and as far as I know there are many of company do this. That's so fun if we can work from anywhere and anytime. But almost today, every single task should be done by come to workplace.

I actually have a job working from home soing customer service. It's a blessing because I don't have to pay childcare costs but at the same time its a little stressful trying to balance out your work and home duties

Are you kidding? I would jump at the chance to work from home. I would save so much money if I could just drop my daughter off at school and pick her up during the day. The rest of the time I could devote to my job. I work in a one-person office, so I am alone almost all of the time. I don't get lonely. I get a lot more work done. I find it extremely distracting to have coworkers talking to me when I'm trying to work. I get so much more done on days when no one bothers me at all. Then again, I'm not a socialite. I've had many coworkers that would have perished if they couldn't gossip with the people in the office down the hall.

I would love to work from home only during my spare time. I love to work in an office with no distraction and in the company of fellow employees.

That would be a very good idea, if my ex-boss allowed me to work from home. Unfortunately, my ex-boss never allowed me to work from home, since he scared my job performance will be down. He said working from home involves a lot of distractions. Because of that, i decided to resign from that job, since i got health problem. Working from home will be a good way for those who want to save time and money, while earning from home.
