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.

Working graveyard has some advantages:

You sleep when the wife is at work

You aer awake and have time to spend with the wife and family when she gets off work

You are working while your wife is sleeping


Disadvantages:

Sleeping during the day sucks and is hard to adjust too

You miss all the great infomercials on TV at 2:00 am

Your wife has all night to spend with her boyfriend


Since you have no wife or kids then I think you're ok

I have worked 4pm-12am or some variation of that for about 10 yrs and love it. It's my preferred shift overall. Could cause an issue with the kids, but I work from home two nights a week and get an extra day off every other week.

Our off shifts get 10% extra from 6pm-6am M-F. Sat-Sun its 20% extra from 6am-6pm and an extra 10% from 6pm-6am.

Personally between the two...I'd take the graveyard shift. Working 2:30-11:00 will suck hairy balls. Especially if you are single. You will have 0 social life.

I worked 11:30 to 7:30 and it was cool. I would want the shedule just to have the 7 days off. You only work 2 weeks a month. The time off is worth it.

I worked 11pm to 8am for one week back in 1986.

Never again. No ****ing way.

Human beings are made to sleep at night, not work through it.

Congrats to those that can pull it off. It is definitely not for me.

It kind of amazes me how many people have said they couldn't get used to it. I worked a 9 pm to 6 am for three years and took to it right away. I guess we are all different.

The hours eventually morphed to a 5:30 pm to 2:30 am shift and that was even better. I would work that shift again in a heartbeat.

That said, for the last 18 years, I have been working four 10's, 5am - 3 pm. I still haven't adapted and have the worst time getting up at 4 am, even after all this time.

I'm only in the office 5 days every two weeks, so it's not too bad for me. As the kids get older and more involved in things it is more difficult, but with my current schedule its something I can deal with.

Plus it's been a godsend as far as child care costs go. Our kids have never been to a sitter or daycare and we love that part.

I'm pretty sure I would hate that schedule, unless it was like ridiculous money
