i do not but its totally worth it if your hours keep you out of rush hour traffic
The sleeping has to be the worst
ya, no rush hour great!
not over night but I once worked 4pm to 11pm. It was nice to be able to sleep in every day.
I sometimes get the graveyard shift at CutCo and fantasize about taking a newly sharpened butcher's knife and slitting my throat.
I used to work graveyard shift(9pm-6am) and if it wasn't for the lack of sunlight, I loved it. No traffic, less people to deal with, I could get high all shift. But going to sleep as the sun is coming up and sleeping pretty much all day sucked balls.
my brother does
as does my buddy
they can both sleep during the day so they say they enjoy it
but if you know people who can't it's apparently a real nightmare
I would love to work the night shift, I would just get a black out curtain so that you have no sun shining through the window, then it doesn't really matter if it's daytime or not, when you crash out.
Pro - hardly anyone around, no idiots to annoy you
Con- feel like death even after ten hours of sleep, basically everything else
Ive worked night shifts since the 80s. Its probably the reason i have a raging sleep disorder and need huge amounts of drugs just to fall asleep. But its the only shift to work in a hospital. Less hectic, no high mangement hanging around. But its ruined my health!
I've done shift work most of my life. Of the three, I'll take second shift, usually 3-11, every time. However, I don't have kids. If you have kids, 2nd shift would be the worst. Every company has different rules and you can really get boned on the off shifts. Day shift gets all the bagel parties and appreciation lunches.
I am a night owl....have worked overnights most of my life. Job I have now is days and I fucking hate it.
It sucks. We were meant to sleep at night and work in the day.
You miss a lot when you work at night.
Plus, you have to shift your hours on your days off just to get stuff done in the daytime when businesses are open.
I double up on the blackout curtains and tape them to the wall to eliminate even a sliver of light coming thru.
I used to work 12 hour continental shifts...various pros & cons about that. Night shifts were the same as day, as far as work. Back in the day I did 3-midnight....that was awesome; got caught up on what was going on with my co-workers, then alone after 5pm.
Now working 4 9's plus a 4 hour Friday...best schedule (albeit tiring during the week) I've ever had.
My friends and family treated me like I just had every day off. Never ending list of chores errands etc. This was before the internet so any business (making Doctor appt, seeing the dentist ,shopping etc) had to be done in the daytime. Totally sucked.
I did midnight to 8 AM for a year while single in my 20's, loved it. It was 10 days on and 4 days off too, like having a 4-day weekend twice a month.
Pros: You can go take care of shit during the day like car maintenance, dr visits, etc. without having to burn vacation time.
Cons: As others have said, sleep was a mess. But in my 20s WGAS/WGAF, more awake time for poon
True but, I was awake only at night pretty much. I'm a sun worshiper of sorts. I had a couple office jobs that I quit too cause I like being outdoors and want my vitamin D.
I've attempted working third shift twice, both times I could not sleep more than an hour a day. The second time I tried third shift, I became severely depressed and could only do the job for I think three or four nights before I had to quit.
All the credit to the people who are able to adjust to sleeping during the day
