Nightshift Workers- Pros and Cons of Working 11 PM- 9AM

I'm considering taking a night shift job. I'm looking at either a 2:30 to 11 PM position with odd (varying schedule) days off and every other weekend or taking a night shift position with 10:45 PM- 9:00 AM with 7 days on and 7 days off.

Anyone ever work nights, still working nights? What do you like/dislike about it?

I'm single, no kids.

Either way, at some point if I'm doing well I might be given the opportunity to get a 7-3 time slot.

Night crew gets $1.00 more per hour. Both have full benefits.

I was working 4:00p-4:30a Mon-thur

I took the shift because it carried a $2/hr shift premium.

I've done it in the past. It's great because you get time during the day to take care of errands.....or you can say **** it and sleep in if you want.

The only downfall.....you can go out partying until you get off of work.

That's why I enjoy it. If I get off on time around 7 am, i usually try to wake up around 3. Gives me plenty of time to do whatever I need to do.

I work rotating 12 hour shifts. Typically 3 days one week and 4 the next. We work all our night shifts in one run of 7 straight nights. Every 4th week we get 7 days off. All in all we work 14 days a month.

I love my schedule and wouldn't want to go back to the proverbial 9-5. Not enough time off to really enjoy it.

Blackout curtains are great. After the first week or so, you get used to it

Unless you live in Guru's neighborhood and there are some noisy dogs.

I started out liking it but it is quickly taking its toll on me. I just got off work, am tired but not ready to crash. I get cranky alot. I either don't get enough sleep and be up for two days and nights & then on my nights off sleep for 16 hours. They switch my night schedule around each week so it's hard get into a routine. For what I get paid it's not worth it. Going go for my CDL and hope to make sum big bucks. Stress over bills is draining me down.
