Yes. Part of my job is sitting and waiting for people to answer me, or for me to get answers to answer their question; I coordinate a LOT. However, I have to be at my desk, near the phone at all times.

I can't now I work retail. BUT I did have a job before and that is where I actually discovered this place. I was planning a trip to disney and somehow found this place and would check in.

Back when I worked at the office, I posted on DIS all the time. My boss didn't care as long as my work got done, and it always did (and does). While we've been told our usage can be officially monitored, they currently don't and won't as long as the higher ups feel it's not being abused.

Now I work from home FT and still post on the DIS, but I use my home computer, not my work laptop. Boss still doesn't care as long as my work gets done.

Yes, I do. I'm on a computer all day at work, on the Internet for various things, and all I can say is that if people haven't been fired for being on the 'net by now, they probably won't be. There are people who literally are online ALL day!

I sometimes do, but from my phone (on 3G, not on Wifi) because my job has the computers locked down to visit ONLY the website where we do our charting. We don't have any internet access beyond that.

During my shift, as long as my work is complete, I can watch tv, read, etc. as I choose, but I am still on alert and ready to jump into action of need be. Those are the times when I play with my phone, check facebook, play words with friends, look at the DIS, etc. This is especially true the nights I work third shift...the residents are asleep when I arrive and for the first 7 hours of my shift I simply have to be awake and alert and complete about one hours worth of housekeeping tasks. I do make up for it during the last three hours of the shift when things are very hectic, busy and demanding.

I am required to monitor Facebook, Twitter and other social media sights like DIS for potential news stories.

Yes. But my job requires me to be online facebook/twitter. I do a lot of large file uploads that I have to wait for & will read then. I have 2 machines so I'll "surf" on the other while waiting for the upload, which I can't leave unattended.

nope.. and shame on anyone that bilks their company while they do.

Be great to see them lose money out of their check and cry for all the time they blow on NOT working..

how hard is it to EARN your paycheck and work 8 hours..
