About This Quiz

When we Americans go to work each day, we all have certain expectations of how it is going to go, how hard we will work, when we will get lunch or breaks, how many hours we work in a day, how many days we work in a week. All of it is pretty much the same when it comes to how we think it is going to go. But in Europe, the whole situation is quite a bit different, regarding how the average work day and work week go.

Is it an odd thing for you to work from home? Do you work on Saturdays? Is it odd to you to think of working less than 40 hours a week and still be working full time?  What do you think of the concept of flex time? Do you eat your lunch at your desk, or do you do it outside of the office? Or actually, let's take that a bit farther - do you eat a huge lunch outside of the office, or even at your construction job, then go home and take a huge nap? Now you're talking! 

Take this quiz and see whether your work style is more like an American or a European. Just don't do it while you are supposed to be working.
