    I'm currently 1500 to 0100. Usually turns into 12s or longer. I prefer the grave shift though

    I’m on 2 13’s this week and 5 13’s next week. Goes back and forth. Women in masks get no play from me.

    We have 5 different rotating shifts....not fun, but most of those shifts have their advantages.
    My current shift is 7-3 PM M-F, but next month it will be 4-Midnight. That shift sucks because working outdoors at night sucks, but I can get much more done at home during the day than the evening.

    Nearly all the time I lived and worked in St Pete I was 2-10 or 3-11.
    But that nearly never panned out, and I ended up going in early or staying late because someone on the other shift wasn't going to be at work.

    i wish that shift was availible, the one thing i hate is although i have my own time to get stuf done, my free time doesnt match with anyone at all. 3rd would mean i could meet up with people.

    I used to work 4-12, Sunday to Thurs. It was awesome...my GF at the time was in school and didn't have classes until the afternoon so she would come to my place at midnight, we'd hang until like 11AM the next day and she'd go to class and I'd get ready for work. I sort of miss that time in my life...

    I hated second shift. But I had young kids then. As a single guy it would be okay. Now that the kids are gone, second shift sounds pretty good.

    Third shift was awesome. Worked midnight to 0700. 30min lunch and got paid for 8 hours. Traffic was easy. Life was good. I actually quit that job when work slowed and they announced third shift was going away.
