    Baking 'til Dawn

    I am fairly new to the 3rd shift working, beginning in July of 2012. I work at Panera as a Night Baker and I am thrilled with working at night. I thrive in the evenings and into the nights so it is where I belong. I admit that it does get lonely on my nights off. When I am...

    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...

    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.
