Are You Still Lucky Enough to Have a "9 to 5" Job?

As much as we all wish we could clock out of work at 5pm and not have to think about our job again until the next day, it’s pretty apparent that for most people the nine-to-five workday just doesn’t exist anymore.

According to a new CareerBuilder survey, 61% of workers say the traditional nine-to-five workday is a thing of the past, with workers in Washington DC the most likely to say the nine-to-five job doesn’t exist anymore (73%), followed by Boston and Los Angeles (68%), and New York (66%). 

Overall, 48% of professionals say they keep working outside the office, with 52% of folks checking or responding to emails during non-work hours. And while those in DC are the most likely to say that traditional workday doesn’t exist, they aren’t the ones necessarily working outside the office the most. Workers in Boston and Dallas (54%) are most likely to say they work outside of office hours, with DC close behind at 53%.
