I will be starting a 3rd shift job in two weeks, how did you work it in the beginning? All the jobs I've had have been 1st shift so I'm kind of nervous about all of this.

I did it for 10 years. It is all dependent on your ability to sleep during the day. I never adjusted and was sick all of the time. The only way I survived was by working part time (32 hours/wk before kids and 24 hours/wk after kids). I was never able to sleep more than 4 hours during the day. Suggestions: dark out shades and fans, ear plugs and eye shades. Melatonin and Tylenol PMs- GL. I loved day shift!
