single and 'looking' nothing beats second shift 3-11, 4-12.....

think closing time girls are bored looking for something different all the guys are drunk and here is a man with a job - sober making sense - mention you haven't had dinner, well you can see where this is going

When I see the price of OEM I think aftermarket.

I worked years of shift work and preferred the overnight shift. No parking problems or traffic. I never liked second shift as it seemed as if I never had any time to myself on that shift.

I've worked just about every sort of shift through the years, except 3rd, although I worked a 10 hour second shift that was 4pm-2:30am for a while. It all depends. I mostly worked Fri-Sun, 6am-6pm when I was going to college. That was great for school. But honestly, I think when most people get married and have kids, 1st shift is usually the best. It sucks to hardly ever see your family. I'm salary now and get to pretty much pick my hours. I work 6am-2:30pm most days so that I can get off with some daylight left.

I'm keeping this one until I die, or it kills me.

I did second shift (4-12:30) for about 6 years and I liked it a lot at the time. I didn't have any kids, my wife is a nurse and she worked nights too. I got a lot of things done around the house during the day, and always forced myself to get up early on weekends. Once I had my first child though I got tired of it and switched jobs to a regular daytime schedule and I'd never go back to 2nd shift again.

Yeah the day shift sounds like it would mess up your weekends, and lets face it most people still plan a good portion of their activities during the weekend. Like others mentioned, I to have been working swing shift for 14 years now, though a little different than you guys. My first bout was 12hr shifts working 4 days on, 4 days off, 4 nights on, 4off - etc.


lol - my current job, though it sounds bad when rattled off on paper is awesome. Again 12hr shifts days/nights, but after I finish the rotation up (3 weeks), I get 17 days off in a row.

Last night shift job I had was a complete rip off for the company I was working for.
I installed kitchen and bath displays and built other displays like dummy decks/patios etc for a well known big box store. By contract I had to be on premises from 7pm to 7am, but the store had a rule that no outside contractors were allowed to work during open hours, their hours were 6am to 10PM winter/5am to 11pm summer, so I was paid 4 hours a day in winter, and 6 in summer to sit in their break room watching TV or in my truck taking a nap.
Was the only time I didn't mind working nights.

I like the night shift most of all. I have been working this way for the second year. Because during the day I try to study. I study at University. Although sometimes not enough time. Even writing an essay, term papers. Through this https://uk.edubirdie.com/ service I find writers and order. I think the main thing is to keep up with my studies.
