Got a new job 2 months ago. Hours are 3pm to 1:30 am. So this is my day off and I'm still awake now at 1am. But for $21.50 per hour I'll struggle through it.
Yup, me too. Raised on a farm, up at 5 AM (or when the sun came up, sometimes before), back to bed by 8-9PM or when the sun went down.Some people can adapt to graveyard, but I never could. It kicked my azz.
When at sea on a 6-month cruise, our normal schedule was 12hrs on and 12hrs off, 7 days a week, until we pulled into port. Then we got 2-3 days off. Would go a couple of months without a day off.Speaking of military stuff, I gather the navy chronically operates sleep deprived like crazy.
Saw a couple articles on it.
It's no wonder you put 18 yr olds in charge of big boats and expect them to not sleep you get shart crashing in the night and stuff.
I dont mind the rotating 12 hour shift too much. My wife is on that.Worst shift (besides 12 days in a row) was 3 days on 4 days off, 4 days on 3 days off, 3 nights on 4 nights off, 4 nights on 3 nights off.
12 hour shifts
Did the same 3 on 4 off then 4 on 3 off but only days, that was a pretty nice schedule with lots of time off.
