    Field positions all work from home, good for flexibility, bad for the fact that when supervisors are abusive it is easily hidden and dismissed as normal behavior.

    The worst thing is that they require so much for so little. You want me to use my computer, landline and internet but not pay at least $10 per hour unless I speak another language !

    You can work from home occasionally, as long as your supervisor is ok with it. However, if you want to go full-time remote, that's a different story. It's much more difficult and there are more rules in place. Westat also never closes for snow because it's expected folks can just work from home.

    Flexible hours. My day started when I left home and drive time was counted and miles were compensated.

    There is so much preparation that you must do to get ready for an assessment, that working from home causes you to work late at night, weekends, holidays . The material sent to your house, take up enormous amounts of space and your house is always in disarray because your materials are everywhere and the equipment is taking up room in your dining room or where ever you are trying to do your work.

    Some of the training you completed at home. Along with surveys and review of the next days information. This was all paid for.

    It's very flexible. Westat has a remote access software program which allows employees to access their desktop computer from home.

    Flexible work at home and in the field position. They will limit you and hours and mileage so they will make you go on travel in state to get all your cases done it that area.

    They are open to discussion of and approving arrangements for work from home for selected roles within the organization. Support with office equipment needed. Give adequate notice about activities that will require commute into the office.
