How Many Hours A Day Does A Full-time Scopist Work?
This depends on how much work the scopist takes in, the quality of the writing of the reporter, if tapes are involved and/or video.
However, the following are responses to this question when posted to the SSG:
***The average time most scopists polled worked during the day was 6.5 hours.***
- "About 5 hours of full scoping - not broken up by bathroom breaks, phone calls, making meals or other distractions."
- "I scope about 7 hours a day, 6 days a week."
- "I work about 7-8 hours a day except when it's an expedite, then it's over 8 hours, plus."
- "I usually scope about 6 hours on weekdays only!"
