New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and everywhere in between, what’s your longest commute?

I’ve lived in all three cities. ✌🏼 New York: 40-50 mins each way. San Francisco: 40-50 mins each way. Chicago: 20 mins each way.

@AD2, I live in studio city and work near the lacma. I take laurel canyon which would be fucking brutal and deadly on a bike.

1 hour and 30 door to door in Chi, including dropping kids at daycare on way in. ( Metra from burbs then shuttle bus)

1.5-2hrs on a normal traffic day in each direction.

San Francisco. I walk to work and it takes 20 minutes

^ sigh. I swear if FCB was easier for blue liners to get to, I’d be working there by now 😅

LA - 50 minutes to go 7 miles each way. SF - 20 min by Muni. Lesson learned - live as close to work as possible.

like

SF. Hour and ten on a good day. Each way. Neither house nor office are near BART.

like

NY- 1.5 hour ea way

LA, 6 miles from my house to my office. 1-1.25 hr each way.

Chicago: A bit over an hour total with drive to train (8 minutes), waiting for train (2 min), train ride (43 minutes), walk to work (10 minutes)... unless the freaking Metra has 27 trains crossing simultaneously at street level so it takes a lifetime to cross the freaking street... that adds some time

chicago - i have to allow an hour to get to work which is super frustrating since it's normally not that bad here. office is in west loop which is why. my last job in chi was 25 mins each way!

@AD1 could you bike???

ACD1 You could bike to work faster. Would cut your commute time in half.

NYC 45 minutes top

Miami - 45 minutes usually.

Boston - 8 minutes walk to train. 10 minutes train ride. Office is literally across the street. Easy peasy.

CHICAGO- depends on the neighborhood you live in. Longest commute 45min each way. Shortest 25mins. Biking got me door to door in roughly 30mins in both those instances.

I drive an hour to work each way. But if I worked in Silicon Beach (LA), where most agencies are, my commute would be 15 mins haha.

Chicago - roughly an hour by L because I can’t afford to live any closer to the Loop alone, and ain’t nobody got time for roommates

How much experience do you need to be seriously considered for jobs that ask for “5 years” experience? I have 1.5 years of Big 4 experience.

(Including college part time accounting jobs gets me closer to 4-5 years experience - just not sure if that’s generally viewed as “valid” experience)
