Are there pros to working second shift?
I am currently working 3rd shift (midnight – 8:30 a.m.) at my job. My boss approached me about possibly moving to 2nd shift (2:30 p.m. – 11 p.m. or 3:30 – midnight). I told her I was flexible and could do whatever was needed of me. I wanted to be a team player.
After thinking about it, it seems like 2nd shift would take up most of the day. At least with 3rd I am available during daylight hours every day to see my family or do errands, etc. (Although I usually just sleep.)
I am single with no children (except two dogs and a cat).
Have any of you ever done shift work? What would you say are the pros and cons?
This is my 1st time so I need your input.
