Take This Commute And Love It. Monster Poll Reveals 11% Willing To Be Super Commuters

A U.S. poll conducted by Monster.com, the worldwide leader in successfully connecting people to job opportunities and flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: MWW), reveals that while nearly 90% of respondents want their commute to the office to take less than an hour each way, a solid 11% would be willing to travel for more than an hour each direction for their dream job.

“It’s no surprise that workers would prefer to spend less time traveling to and from work—even for their dream job,” said Mary Ellen Slayter, Career Advice Expert for Monster.com. “That time behind the wheel is time away from their friends and families, as well as productive time at work which is why the size of the group willing to use that much time getting to and from work is somewhat surprising.”

Monster .com asked the following question to U.S. visitors on its site, “What is the maximum amount of time you would you be willing to commute to your dream job (one way)?” The poll, which received over 4,500 responses, resulted in the following findings:

  • I would commute up to 15 minutes each way – 14%
  • I would commute up to 30 minutes each way – 44%
  • I would commute up to 60 minutes each way – 31%
  • I would commute up to 90 minutes each way - 4%
  • I would commute over 90 minutes each way – 7%

The results of the current Monster Poll are based on votes cast by visitors on the U.S. Monster homepage and social media channels from: June 17 – July 1, 2013. The Monster Meter is an ongoing series of online polls that gauge users' opinions on a variety of topics relating to careers, the economy and the workplace. This poll is not scientific and reflects the opinions of only those Internet users who have chosen to participate.
