    Every weekend, and I like it that way.

      Our shifts are 12 hours so working double would be a whole day- 24 hours. It doesn't happen except in emergency situations like ...hmmm let me think ... maybe freaking KATRINA!!!
      In that case my supervisor went down to the plant the Sunday before the storm hit and rode out the storm in the guard shack with another SO. I couldn't get in to releive him until the roads were cleared on Tuesday. So he did 48 hours straight. We got paid Hurricane Pay for that whole week. One Hundred dollars per 12 hour shift. The SO he worked with stayed on shift for 72 hours straight and slept in the guard shack on a cot the plant Security Director left there. Easy money sitting in the Guard shack eating MREs and drinking cokes someone left for us.
      Normally, IF My relief calls in at the last moment and I have to get on the phone and call around looking for someone to relieve me then I might have to work a couple hours over until they show up. I often have to work someones shift while they are on vactaion or out sick but never a double, aka 2 shifts back to back.
