    I can't believe I couldn't find the answer to this question on Google, so I'm asking it here.

    Generally speaking, does my VA get to enjoy her weekends, or do VA's work every day of the week? I am new to this and I don't want to come off as inexperienced or rude to my VA, so thank you for your replies :)

    5 days/week should be enough...my VAs work sometimes on Saturdays only if there are urgent things to do, and for this I pay them a small bonus...

    If you want them working for you overtime you could probably pay them a small fee to satisfy them. After all, they do need their rest.

    This all depends on what company you are hiring the VA's from and how much you are paying. I am sure many of them could use
    the extra money but they need their rest like everyone else.

    Give them some bonus for it and they will be happy to do it.

    Otherwise they are still human beings, who needs some break from work and spend some quality time with there families or friends.

    The more you take care of them, the more you can expect good work from them.

    But don't get too easy on them, or you will not get what you want.


    P.S Personal Experience. I worked as a VA before.

    I used to push mine but yeah they should get weekends off. Some just won't respond if you write them on weekends. And keep in mind most are in Asia/Middle East and half to a full day ahead of us. Meaning they almost work Sunday night to Thursday night American time. Just send them what you need done earlier in the week.

    I have never figured it out. Many Philippinos are always broke but they need their weekends and holidays. My g/f will work as a VA all night long and on weekends but she is not like other Philippinos.

    I've had good results with OnlineJobs.ph, although it's not a free site. You could however try to find the promising people on there on other sites like Elance or Odesk, and contact them there.

    this is only if you have money.

    in my country some people work 24/7 for about $5 per day and some not even work 1 hour a day.

    I don't know
    I am sure a lot of them will be willing to do so - just compensate their time well. I know many people who would work their ass off for $5 - $10 (hard labor work).

    Anyway, they have family to feed - so pay them well - they'll work well for you.

    Yeah, VAs do need rest but if you want them to work on weekends let them know beforehand and give them some bonus, win-win situation for both of you ;)

    Maybe on a few weekends, but usually its off. You will need to pay extra on those few weekends.

    Anyone looking for a VA, I found mine through onlinejobs.ph without paying. I just googles her full name, found her facebook profile, mesages her, and things have been golden since then. I found this method on another post that someone created so I am not taking credit, but everyone on a budget be try this before registering.
