20% of Network Recruiters Working 4 Days This Week


We recently posed a question to the Top Echelon Network Membership in the form of a survey in the Members’ Area.

That question was as follows:

Which days are you working during Thanksgiving week?


The choice of answers that were offered is listed below, along with the percentage of recruiters that selected each answer:

  • Monday through Wednesday and Friday — 20.0%
  • Monday through Wednesday — 45.7%
  • Monday and Tuesday — 22.9%
  • Just Monday — 5.7%
  • I’m not working any days — 5.7%


recruiter surveysOnce upon a time, the majority of recruiters didn’t work at all during Thanksgiving week.  Because they had billed so much to that point in the year, they didn’t feel as though they had to work during the week.  However, times have changed.

As the results of this survey indicate, 20% of Top Echelon Network recruiters plan to work four days this week.  The only day they’re taking off, of course, is the Thanksgiving Day holiday.  In addition, nearly 46% of survey participants are working Monday through Wednesday and taking off Thanksgiving and Friday.

As for those recruiters who aren’t working any days during Thanksgiving week of 2013?  Only 5.7% of those who responded to the survey question plan to take the whole week off, a far cry from what used to be the case . . . once upon a time.


How many days are YOU working this week?  Is it more than you’ve worked during Thanksgiving week in years past?  Less?  What are the reasons?
