Does anyone here work shift work or am I the only one? I just need some comfort in the fact that I am not the only guy who has to work every other weekend or on chirstmas eve, xmas night and the day after.

I dont think I get holiday diff (they just give you extra hours to your vacation). My shift diff is pretty good though at 12%

I used to work rotating shifts on my last shore duty for two years. It sucked balls.

No McK... Shore Duty rocks even if you're standing on your head in 4 feet of dookie. Its sea duty that sucks. sea duty=CONSTANT shift work

You would think, but I left early to go back to sea. Seriously, it blew.

I will have to agree in the fact that sea duty blows. I just got out of the navy after 6 long years of sea duty. I was in Souda Bay a few months ago talking to this security guy and he was telling me how much he hated it. He had never been on a ship and had no idea how good he had it it. Fast internet, beer, and a real bed make all the difference.

Yep, shiftworker here. I work a rotating schedule with one weekend off a month and my shift changes weekly--days, swings and graveyards. The schedule sucks, but that's why they compensate us nicely. I can't wait till I'm done with school and get that nice daywork, monday-through friday job, though.

Wow what a great thread. I work 3p-3a and I sometimes work 7p-7a. I work every 3rd weekend and I have to work some holidays. I work in the ER in one of Bostons hospitals.
