I Work 3rd Shift

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 62 People

    I work in a factory 3rd shift.

    This is a change for me because I spent the last 8 years working during the day as a teacher. The pay is good and people don't bother me because most of the higher ups leave before 4. Am I the only one here who feels like they are more awake at 2 am than they ever were at 2 in...

    I Am A Sleep Technician So I Do My Best Work At Night

    Been There, Done That

    I worked at an automotive factory for 14 years and approximately 10 of them were spent on 3rd shift. It has its ups and downs the same as any other shift except there isn't as much brass around those hours.

    So people are always wanting to talk,

    but I have yet to find that here on EP. So if you are up between the hours of 11pm and 7am EST lets talk..I am open to discuss anything. (But I do prefer people in my age range) If no one wants to talk I will just continue to surf around and post my random thoughts.

    Never Had An Issue On 3rd Shift.

    I work 3rd shift. Have on/off for several years. I seem to be that odd person who actually likes it and doesn't suffer from all the weird "syndromes" that get associated to 3rd shift workers. I can stare at this screen all night and go home and sleep in daylight (guess that rules...
