Wow. That's brutal.My work week consists of two 7AM-7PM day shifts followed by two 7PM-7AM night shifts. Constant physical and mental disruption.
Unions are illegal in this neck of the woods.
Wow. That's brutal.
To all: If you do work the graveyard, how long did it take you to get used to it? Is your first day off a "throw away"?
That is SWEEEET! I wish we had something like that. We have a few 4-tens shifts which are mostly weekends off and held by the top 6 senior dispatchers. The rest of us "grunts" get 5-eights shifts.We have 2100-0500, 2200-0600, and 2300-0700 shifts. Line holders (upper 80%) work a 6-3-6-3-6-6 schedule (applies to all shifts).
I'm currently working vacation relief because it's the ONLY line that allows for the occasional weekend day off due to the fact that the senior dispatchers take the summer off. (YUP, they can take as much as 3 months off at a time!) Since I'm single, I don't care what shift I work. I'm just looking for quality time off.I can get used to any shift as long as the hours remain the same... its the flip flop from graveyard to afternoons in the same week that kill me... such is Vacation relief lines.. they just sssssssuck...
