  • daylight hours. i did nights for 3 years, that was enough for one lifetime. now i work mostly afternoon or evenings and its better than nights, but nothing beats daylight.

  • I prefer morning, BUT.. If I didn't have kids I'd love to work 2nd shift

  • Mornings or day time. I like to be done with work as early as possible.

  • Days-
    We have a mainly 12 hour unit, except the call people (I am a call person).
    I do a lot of 4 hour shifts..people like to go home after 8 hours.

  • Once upon a time I worked 2 pm to 11 pm. It was great. I could get up, go shopping and to the bank, take care of all that day time stuff. Then go to work. Then when I got home at 11:15 it was time to fall into bed. So much better than get up go to work, come home tired and hungry, make dinner and leave the dishes in the sink while I veg for a couple of hours in front of TV. The other way was much more productive.

  • I've only ever worked 1st shift.

  • If I didn't have kids, it would be 2nd shift. When I was a single mom to 3 I was going to school and planning on working three 12 hour overnight shifts/week at one of the local pharma companies, then I would sleep during the day while my kids were at school. It would have been perfect . . . but then I met my husband and now I'm a SAHM.
