Sometimes. I am a knowledge worker in a creative field, so sometimes I need to let the "boys in the basement" (thanks to Stephen King) knock things around before I can solve a problem. When I need a mental break, sometimes Dis does it. Other times, I get up and go for a short walk.

Sorry that the concept of working a full shift without surfing the 'net is such a horrible thing.

There is a reason companies spend TONS of money to stop people that do waste even more money wasting time when they are being paid.

tell you what.

Give me one person here that would hit a check out counter and not complain if the person was doing something else but taking care of them at that point..

If you are surfing the net at work you are wasting your customers times.. Your companies time. You are being paid to NOT do your job.. that simple

Want to spin it anyway and you still lose. If you are on the clock and on the net for stuff not related to your job, you are stealing from them..

that simple.

Rarely. When I do it's only during one of the rare times I don't have to work through lunch.

Nope my company blocks all message boards and social media sites. But I used to on my lunch years ago when it wasn't blocked.

Clearly you have no idea of the variety of jobs that are out there. I can't surf the Internet at work other than on my lunch hour--90% of my day is providing therapy to kids, and besides, I put in so many "off the clock" hours, I would only be hurting myself. Most professional jobs are not "work hard for 8 hours" but rather "get these tasks done" propositions anyway.

On the other hand, I visit another forum that has a ton of IT guys who are sitting around waiting for someone to need them (like if the network crashes). If the boss doesn't care that they entertain themselves while they wait, how is it bilking the company?

Couldn't if I wanted to.

The only thing we can access, other than the internal system, is the JoAnn's website, and the JoAnn's employee portal website. Everything else is blocked.

I wouldn't have time anyway.

And clearly you work at a boring, menial job where you do not have to think on your feet, put out fires, listen/care/commiserate to others, assist others in making life-changing decisions, and be mentally/emotionally exhausted at the end of the day. Sometimes a five to ten minute break to mentally relax is sorely needed and actually makes me a more productive worker. And I have never ignored a participant or not finished my work within timelines because I was on the web. Talk about black and white thinking - sheesh. I would bet you are in a management position where you are not we-liked by your employees!

I usually dont have time. My day is half administrative and half working directly with kids. So the time I have for admin work is generally pretty busy with tasks I need to do. Luckily for me if I dont have a lot of admin work I can come in later so I am not sitting around with nothing to do. I might visit once every couple of weeks

When I had a home day care, I dissed during nap. It was something quiet I could do while waiting for the kids to wake. Moving around the house would wake up the light sleepers.

Now that I worked nights at a group home, the assigned tasks only take a couple hours of an 8 hour shift. We aren't supposed to do the clients work for them, we are there to help them be self-sufficient.
So, the rest of the time I'm doing homework (I'm back in school) and playing on the Dis. Boss is well aware that I do. Other staff read books or watch tv so there is nothing 'wrong' with how I choose to burn that 6 hours of my night.
Thank god, because I could never manage working 8 hours, school, studies, and my family any other way. I don't make much, but I very much appreciate this job!
