Where's My Fellow Graveyard Shifters?
« on: September 23, 2011, 03:42:53 pm »
So I'm just curious whom over here works nights? And when I mean nights, I mean like from 12am-8am or 7pm-7am (like I do) or something similar.

And here's a few random questions to keep things trudging along (you don't need to answer them, but it helps move things along):

What do you do?
Do you prefer nights to days?
How do you deal with lunch? (Do you bring your own stuff? Go to a 24-hour place? I ask because not many places cater to the nighttime crowd.)
Do you switch back to a day schedule on the weekends?

And whatever other random stuff ya wanna add...
Showing up is just half of the battle...

I'm here, working nights is kinda zombifying.

For lunch?  Usually I just hit the cafe at work, after midnight there is hardly anything but fast food open here in the 'burbs.

I work at Clark College as a custodian.  My weekly schedule is 10:30pm-7:00am, Sunday-Thursday.  For the most part, I do prefer nights.  this allows me to attend classes.  However, since I'll be graduating soon, and I'll be having a baby in a few months, I'll probably look into having my boss transfer me to days (though it probably won't happen).  For food, I just bring whatever from home.  Sometimes it'll be sandwiches, or leftovers, or top ramen.  I also like having 1-3 energy drinks to help me get through the shift, but many times I require none.

Me me me!!!

What do you do?  I'm a CNA 2 at a hospital

Do you prefer nights to days?  Do I ever!

How do you deal with lunch? (Do you bring your own stuff? Go to a 24-hour place? I ask because not many places cater to the nighttime crowd.)  I don't eat meals really...not even if I'm awake during the day.  (Unless someone prepares one for me)  I just eat all the time.  I come in with a grocery bag full of a variety of food to make sure I have a good selection.


Do you switch back to a day schedule on the weekends?  Not normally but sometimes I do.

My schedule is constantly changing... i havent worked overnights, which is more along the lines that you are talking, but i have worked a lot of shifts until 1am, followed by being back to work at 10am. I usually pick up 'lunch'your on my way in for my shift and then store it in the breakroom fridge un til i get my break.

On the one side, i think i would prefer overnights to the almost overnight shift because it would be constant and i wouldnt have to deal with customers, but as a non-overnighter, i know we leave a LOT of stuff for them to deal with because we dont want to.
