Question Pros and Cons of 2nd & 3rd shift..

Well do you like working 2nd shift or not? What are good and bad things about it. My husband is currently working first shift but thinking about going back to 2nd or try 3rd shift for more overtime and more money to pay things off and have a house etc.

I hate those kinds of jobs.

If I had to, and buses ran all night, I would work 3rd shift.

I hate getting up so early in the morning to go to work 1st shift, and 2nd shift would make me miss out on the great stuff that goes on in the evenings (hang out with friends, have fun, go out, etc). I'd rather work all night 3rd shift, go home at 7 am, sleep all day, and wake up sometime before 5 pm, and have fun, then go back to work at 11 pm.

Hopefully when I graduate I can get a job in Graphic Design and work a 9 to 5 job...maybe even have flexible hours...see what happens.

Never did any 3rd shift kind of work. Did do quite a few late 2nd shifts at a Six Flags amusement park, though.

I'm happy sticking to my 8-5 hours. 9-5 jobs don't exist anymore as far as I know.

I guess it would depend on the job. I wouldn't mind working a 2nd shift from time to time. However, working a 3rd shift could be overwhelming.

Find 1st and 2nd shift jobs that pay more better pay. Go with the AFL-CIO if needed.

Second shifts are alright when they're used on a rotating basis, sure. Keeps things fresh, and frees up some time during the day to use for errands, but I wouldn't want to keep regular hours from 4pm to 12am (or other times used for a 40 hour workweek that starts after noon but before midnight).

Well, what is a 3rd shift? Usually, it would mean 3rd job.

If the business was a 24-hour business, then that would be understandable... such as Walmart Superstores. However, for a place like Blockbuster Video... you would only have up to two shifts since there's opening and closing.

3rd shift doesn't mean 3rd job. It simply means the hours are either from 11pm to 7 am or from 12am to 8 am, depending on the job. Not all places have those.

my bf work as 3rd shift, and he always sleep daytime and spend time with kids and me every afternoon to late evening. Which is work out, he all cares to be there for kids and me than miss out of his life. He preferred to be have 1st shift but no available and took 3rd. He refused 2nd shift cuz he won't able to see kids if they go back to school.

I work 3rd shift since. Night shift is quiet work but tired of it. I guess so. I really want day shift. I can spend time with family better. 2nd shift duty I never experince before. I like either first or third shift. Yes night has more pay than day.

I used to work third shift at a factory several years back in the old days, It was so hard because I had to be at work from 11 at night to 7 in the morning, take my son to school and sleep a few hours before he gets home from school, I did not get plenty of sleep. It was too much stress for me, So I decide to find another job before quitting that job and I did in just a matter of time. Never been happier. It was very hard to do that when you're a single mother. It doesn't work that way.

It's true. 2nd shift at my work has .25 per hour premium on top of base wage and 3rd shift adds .15 more bringing the 3rd shift's total to .45 at my job.

Ive worked all shifts and I would rather work 2nd shift....

I worked plenty of second and third shifts during my college years. Computer rooms and security are both 24 hour operations.

I'm working 2nd shift security now and like it much better than working nights. I can get up early and run errands without problems. I don't have to worry about managers hanging around at work. I can get ahold of people when there are problems without having to wake them up from a deep sleep. After work, I can surf the web without interuption. This helps me keep up with AD and the news.

The downside is that I miss out on stuff with the family and new TV shows. I still haven't figured out how to hook up a VCR to my sis' DirecTV.

I've worked jobs that have paid shift differential, but none of them have been security. I've also worked many weekends and holidays.

Yeah I recalled that I used to work for Xerox Corp
near Rochester NY on 3rd shift I love it because
I could go out with anyone for dinner and
then go to work at nights from
10 pm till 6 or 7 am
at the computer operations room
I LOVE it because of very few people there
and it's usually very quiet there all night long.
When I get ready go home leaving the building
usually say "Good Morning" to these 1st shift people coming in
and they said "Good Night" to me at the same time
LOL

I have done a third shift eons ago. Once you sort of get used to it, it is not too bad. I would definitely prefer it over the second shift as you don't have to miss the social stuff with family and friends.

I have never done night shifts but have worked jobs with odd hours...definately not 9 to 5 hours. But if it was up to me, I would prefer 1st and 3rd shift for work...more benefits and /or have social life.

I dont know whats your life situation with family and your relationship with your hubby. Best discuss this with your hubby and make sure you decide whats is best and comfortable with. It is harder with family than when being single.

For all of the benefits mentioned here about the third shift, it is also well known that quality control takes a dip on that shift.

I have worked only 1st and 2nd shifts in my life. I used to work 2nd shift at Carl's Jr. Restaurant in California about 12 years ago. Carl's Jr. is a popular fast food restaurant, like Burger King, in Southern California.... Right now I work first shift from 7 AM to 4 PM weekdays. I like first and second shift better than 3rd shift. 3rd shift is hard for me, becuase of lack of sleep on daytime.
