    I recently changed jobs. I used to work a night shift and i've changed to days so i could have my soial life back. Obviously this is a major drop in money as i got a night shift allowance. I got my social life back, but i don't get on with people i work with on the day shift as much as the night shift. Along with the big drop in money, i'm beginning to wonder if its acually worth it just so i can have a bit more of a life :?

    ive just gone onto a night shift, only temporarily, and i must admit, im enjoying it. better people etc... but yeah, screwing my time off up bit time.

    i work 4 on 4 off, some guys work 7 on 7 off, i think a 7 on 7 off shift plan would be good for nights

          i work offshore and with my rota i usually work 7 nights, 7 days then 3 weeks off. i like doing the nights as it breaks up the 2 weeks when your out there and its generally a bit quieter

              I work first, backs and night shifts. Times are:

              1st 05:30 to 13:30
              Backs 13:30 to 21:30
              Nights 21:30 to 05:30

              Do 2 firsts then 2 backs and then 3 nights, then it changes to 2 first 3 backs then 2 nights............and then 3 first, 2 backs and 2 nights then I get 10 days off (do have 2 days off after each 7 days as well.

              Can screw up the social life a bit but the shift pay is well worth it :wink:

              Seem to be working 12hr shifts at the moment though as one of the oher managers is sick, by this Sunday I will have worked an 86 hr week

                  Ha, our "old shared HR" department keep mucking up our overtime/call out payments up, I'm still waiting for O/T from September last year.....

                  Working shift does have it's drawbacks, but also it's plus points.

                  my pattern is:

                  Tuesday-Friday 1pm to 8pm 7hours days (lates)
                  Monday-Friday 8am to 4pm 8hours days (earlies)
                  Monday-Thursday 8pm-8am following day (nights)
                  Finish friday morning then off till the following friday
                  Friday 8am-4pm
                  Saturday and Sunday 8am-8pm

                  So we get a week off... :wink:

                  Although due to shift changes/course I've been earlies for the past 3 weeks, my first week was 73 time away working in Swindon as well whilst we close that "office" and move it north.
