Hey guys, Third shifter here and let me just say that I'm addicted to looking up all sorts of stuff on this board. If it weren't for this group, my shift would crawl by. Any other third shifters or night owls in this situation? :)

I change from days to nights and back every 6 weeks. I work 12 hour shifts also. I can't use the internet at work, but I keep my same sleeping schedule on my days off so this forum is good for killing time (and learning a lot about my bike) while the family sleeps.

I worked graveyard for eleven years (1990 - 2001) as a field engineer for Xerox. Riding around and getting out of your van at 3:00 in the morning can be 'very interesting' in some parts of downtown.

I often think back an wonder how I did it for so many years, but that was when I 'wore a younger man's clothes'.

Mo' power to anyone who can work graveyard.

It's tough, but someone has to do it. :lol:

Rotating **** work here

Yep, I'm currently working the mid shift, not all that bad. 10pm to 6am
I work all three shifts, rotate every 16 weeks, not as bad as some folks that rotate on a weekly basis, that would kill this ol'fart.
However, if it weren't for forums like this one, the nights would go on forever.

Didn't think 1800 or 1300 mattered for this question...

Normal schedule - I work 3 weeks 6am to 2pm, 5 days, 5 days, then 6
days, then 2pm to 10pm for 7 days, then 10 pm to 6am for 7 days,...

IT SUCKS!!!

In an "outage" right now, 7 days a week, 12 hours a day, 6pm to 6am!
for 30 to 50 days depending on if they stay on schedule or not, and
if anything "breaks" or not.

(what day is it, anyhow???)

Been working the night shift for about 15 years, 6p - 6a. Great in the summer but sucks in the winter.
