I used to do 10 hour days during the week so I would have a 4 day work week and i liked it.  It was strictly day shift though (8-6)I wouldn’t like working 10-10 and never on the weekends.

I’m not a nurse but I think I would be more than happy with a 3 day 10-10 shift pattern over nights, and also over working 5 days a week lol!

What is the likelihood / regularity of you could end up with 5/6 days straight of 10-10 however? Presumably it would only happen once in a two week period at worst?

I used to work shift work and for about a year period we had to work 12am-12pm or 12pm-12am 2 weekends a month. Those hours were long and messed with my sleep schedule, but I’d do 10am-10pm since I’m normally awake during those hours. If it’s only 2-3 days a week, I think it would be worth it to avoid the zombie-like feeling you get after working night shifts.

12 hour shifts are touuuuugh! I work 7am – 7pm days shifts and I do do 7pm – 7am nights. I work in a pathology lab and am on my feet all day. I would say the time off is awesome! You get more chance to sort sh*t out. But it is exhausting, especially if they are all together. But it all depends on how you deal with them. Some people I know prefer them, some people struggle. The one thing I can recommend is if you don’t already have one get a slow cooker as they are lifesavers (if you would want to eat after 10pm!!)

My husband does 8am-8pm. Hes also done the overnight 8pm-8am shift. But he does 4 days on 2 days off, etc. 

He obviously prefers the day shift then the overnights, he gets off just early enough that if we wanted to go out and do something with friends or whatever he can. 

When he does overnights though he has no life. And he spends his days off typically catching up on sleep and being sluggish.

If it’s only 3 days a week then hell yeah I’d do it. Currently working 8pm – 6am 4 days a week and fiance works 7pm – 7am 4 days on then 4 days off. Our days don’t line up at allllll either so we never have time off together.

I work from around 8AM to 8PM 4 days a week. 

I like having 3 days off a week so it works out. 

If I were you I’d do a little latter like 12 to 12 or earlier like 8 to 8 so you have some time either before or after wok to get some things done during your week.

I used to work primarily these hours (with an occasional 7a-7p). It kind of kills your day but really any 12 hour shift does in my opinion. I liked the hours because I worked 3 shifts and had 4 off. I didn’t have kids and I can see it being harder if I did, but there are pros and cons to these kind of shifts- you have 4 days off and you can still wake and sleep at decent hours with these hours. My Hangup would be working all the weekends but if that doesn’t bother you I’d go for it

It’s not an ideal time imo. Starts a bit too late. But at least it isn’t night shift. Only you can decide what works for you. 

I’ve done night shift on two different positions and had to get out of there. I also work weekends currently which sucks. Healthcare sucks.

At my workplace you can forget about having one weekend day off (because they only give a Saturday OR Sunday) unless you have 20+ years seniority. Crazy isn’t it?
