(CHICAGO) -- Working from home is great work if you can get it, especially in light of a new CareerBuilder.com survey that reveals 17 percent of Americans who telecommute at least part of the time spend one hour or less per day on work.
The national survey found 40 percent of telecommuters work between four and seven hours per day, while 35 percent work eight or more hours.
The online jobs site also found:
-- 37 percent of telecommuters say they are more productive at the office, while 29 percent state they are more productive at home. Thirty-four percent say they are equally productive at home and the office.
-- Telecommuters rank household chores as the biggest distraction, followed by TV, pets, running errands, the Internet and children.
-- 41 percent of female telecommuters work in their pajamas, compared to 22 percent of males.
The CareerBuilder.com national survey was conducted between May 19 and June 8, 2011, and involved nearly 5,300 employees.
