    I used to primarily work dog watch (graveyard) or swing into graveyard, but these days I simply refuse to work anything other than days. The company I work for is pretty cool about trying their best to work with you on schedueling and days are what I do now. My place is to be at home to protect the family at night. Just kissed goodbye the CRE posts for good, I'm tired of it all. Now I'm doing mostly construction gigs.

    Days now but no preference

    Using the vacation days wisely, I really stretch the 150 hrs into more than 4 weeks

    2 on, 2 off, 3 on, 2 off, 2 on, 3 off
    rinse and repeat

    We worked 12 hour shifts, either 6am - 6pm, or vice versa.

    Our rotation went:
    4 nights (6pm - 6am)
    4 days off
    3 days (6am - 6pm)
    3 nights (after a 24 hour break)
    4 days off
    4 days
    6 days off (yeah buddy)

    28 day rotation, only working 14 days equalling 168 hours of pay

    I can't wait to get back to that rotation.

    Nights 6pm-6am mostly. Sometimes I get called to cover a day shift. For example, tommorrow, Sunday, I work a day shift, 6am-6pm. Then the next day I'm back on night shift.
    Nights are easy compared to day shift.

    Rotation

    I work a rotating shift. It works like this. Work 7 night shifts, off 4 days work 7 evening shifts, off 2 days, work 7 day shifts, off 2 days. Then you are back at night shift again. And on and on it goes for years and years now and I can't get it changed. Sometimes when we are a man short the sat and sun of those 7 days turn into 12 hour long shifts so that one of us can be off on a weekend.
    Beelzebub himself invented this schedule. Well, not really. I invented it. At least where I work. But at the time it was implemented their were 5 people to work and one was senior and he covered the day shift mon - fri unless someone got sick or took vacation then he covered those shifts and took time off during his work week. The rest of us rotated the other two shifts and the day weekend shift. When they got rid of the senior position we went to the one we use now which is a variation of the original but changed to accommodate 4 men instead of 5. Hope that made sense. I know what I am saying and hope the reader does too. It is actually a fair schedule but I really would prefer a straight shift at this point. Anyway, its a good job so I will keep doing my best no matter what the schedule is.

    2nd shift (1500-2300) Supervisor. I love it. I don't even set an alarm anymore I get up when I need to. If for some reason I have to get up early to take care of something then I do. I have enough time in the mornings for doctors appts, etc. and still get a good nights sleep

    We work 14 days on and 14 days off - 12 hour days.

    The shifts rotate with one tour of days and then one tour of nights.

    Now that I own the company I, of course work various hours.

    However, when I was the low man on the todem pole I very much preferred midnights. No traffic, less people, calls are in process, or just occured, company administration, and client management are home snoring away. Oh yeah, the midnight shift baby. haha

    shift

    I currently work midnight shift. 23:00-0730, and it is the shift I like the best because of:

    The 3 others I work with. (1 Sr. Officer and 2 Officers) with 9-18 years of experence. We just work very well together.

    All the freaks come out at night

    $1.75 shift diff.

    No Big bosses!
