Default Your work hours?

Whats everyones work schedule? Anyone having trouble sleeping? I work 10:00pm-6:15am. I switched to this shift back in 05 so I could get more hunting done. I use to have no problem sleeping. Now I cant sleep for more then 3 hours a shot. It sucks!

Welcome to my world!!!! I work two 12-hours days, followed by two 12-hour nights and then two days off. I never know if I should be sleeping or awake!!!

When I get off in the mornings.....I can never sleep more than 2 or 3 hours. I am tired all of the time with this rotation (56 hrs/week)

Plus I spend about 30 hrs per week doing taxidermy.

I can't sleep when it is light out and the masks don't work for me.

Thanks to my new promotion I go in at 5:00am and get off somewhere around 7:30pm. 6 days per week.
Of course that's only 87 hours per week

I start at 6:30 AM and go to usually about 6 PM. I work 5 days/week and many times 6 days a week especially late spring into late fall (busy building season). It's pretty common to work Full shifts on saturdays for about a 6 month block from May through October. I manage production on a factory floor. Use to work in the production years and years ago. Thank God for night school (or day school during the 4.5 years I worked swing and/or graveyard) and opportunity.
