Always 7 to 7 no matter if it's day or night. Routine starts on a Friday night. 4 nights, 3 days off, return Friday dayshift and do 3 days, get Monday off and return Tuesday for 3 nights, go home Friday morning and get a 3 day weekend, return Monday for 4 day shifts, get off Thursday night and don't have to retun to work until a week later on a Friday night to repeat the routine. If I followed my basic schedule, I would only have to work 15 days a month but, For the past 8 years I've been working between 700 and 1000hrs Of OT a year. I'm never off. Lol

The guys at work tell me I have two shifts... I go in about 6am every morning, work through lunch then take off about 4pm. I log back in to the network about 7 pm every night and work until about 1am... They tell everyone I work 1st and 2nd shift :)

At what point does it cross over from work to slavery? Lol. Those are some long hours!

Thankfully I retired last July. For the previous 26 years I worked 8-5 with weekends off but prior to that I worked 7-3, 3-11 and 11-7 rotating every six months. Did that for about ten years.

I just started 2nd shift at Subaru about a month ago. Their hours are 4:30 pm to 1 am, however we are soo far behind that normally we work until 3 am. To me this is more of a 1/2 and 1/2 shift, half 2nds and half 3rds!

I work same schedule but 6-6 in an oil refinery in Illinois. Nice having 7 day break every month.
