    3 days, 3 days off, 3 nights, 3 days off

    thats what I work and it sucks...

    But the pay is excellent, the benefits are great, and I get 7 weeks paid vacation/year

    I get 9 dollars an hour, no shift premium, its a proper ass raping!! see I was hired by a placement agency, then take like 4 dollars an hour and all shift premiums etc, its ****ing robbery.. They even take our christmas bonous! This is a prime example of what happens when you look for a summer job in july

    I use to work the late shift 10:30-7 for about 5 months. It does truly indeed suck ass after a while, but at least I get to sleep as much as I want and eat whenever I want. It also is a little strange when you're going to lunch at 3:30 in the morning and you're the only one on the freaking road. Kind of depressing. As far as training, it didn't really affect me because of all the sleep I was able to get.

    I just switched to graves 7/24/05. I work from 2300 hours to 0730. I get up at 2000 hours and do my 45 minutes of .65% THR cardio. Then I shower and eat my oatmeal. Jam off to work. Snack at 0130, lunch at 0300, snack again at 0600 and then hit the gym for an hour after work. Eat when I get home, shower, sack out, and start all over.
    I was working at 1500 hours to 2330 hours before. The heat was killing me. Started working at the hottest part of the day and those triple digits were killing me.

    NMS i understand what you mean, alot of my friends worked that kinda work and hated it. I hated it too cause i would never see them, they would either be working or sleeping.


    Government jobs are where it's at. I get about 13$ and hour plus 2$ shift premiums depending on the day and time.

    Great to hear this dedication.
    It is not easy to live like a vampire and get your training, cardio and meals in.
    My hats off to all that do.
