Well yeah, the money is substantially better than my last standard 8hr a day, 5 day job but I actually average out to do less hours when you average it out over the 2 week rolling rota.

As long as it pays your all good. Just finished my 8th night shift in a row with the 1st being a 24 hour shift. Weekend off then same again starting Tuesday. Continentals seems easy compared :lol:

So far so good with these shifts, got used to the longer days now and have no complaints about only working a maximum of 3 days without having 2 days off. This week I only work 2 days and next week 5 days then it repeats again.

It depends massively what you do. Usual office 9-5's are usually just that, it's only when you venture into construction / maintenance / manufacturing jobs that you see crazy hours. A few years ago, 18-21 hour days weren't a rarity, though not consecutively.

I work 12 - 13 hours Monday - Friday. Usually will do another 4 - 6 hours over time from home depending how knackered I am with having a toddler that hates sleep at the moment. Sunday I do another 5 hours, but only if I've no family stuff on.

Iv worked 12 hour shifts for nearly 6 years 2days & 2night split, previously to that id worked 4 years of 9.5 hr shifts. Days and nights.

I also commute 1 hour to work so that makes the days a bit longer. I get a decent whack in shift pay and 4 days off at a time.

Id rather travel to work 4 times a week than 5, and id also rather get my shifts done and have 4 days off to myself rather than just weekends. I dont mind working weekends/nights as there is no management around. I do only get 2 full weekends off out of 8

Im not a morning person nor do i struggle with the nights. Its horses for courses.

I tend to do this with my job to an extent anyway, I have a hard work week where I'll do 4 days 7:30 til 9/10pm, Friday 7:30 to 4ish. Then the next week I'll do my hours-ish - 7:30 till 4ish... Depends how the work load goes. If it's worth a fair bit of money and the move is the right thing to do I'd do it. The worst bit is when you know the hard week is coming and you're not mentally prepared! However 5 days off in a row sounds good.

Mrs does 4 on 4 off. You work more weekends than you have off. Wank shift pattern

When you're there, you're there. Rather have more complete days off, than part days of evenings and mornings.

Personal preference, depends on shift times and your partner

Anyone work these shifts?

Looking at jobs where the majority of shifts are 12 hours, 5 days 1st week and 2 days 2nd week.

I'm not used to working anything out of the usual 8 hour days but don't know how people get on with them...
