I work in a vet clinic in the kennels area. I am scheduled to work Tuesday morning, Wednesday morning, all day Thursday, and every other weekend. Some weeks, I work more than that depending on who is requesting time off. Later this month I will be covering a week's worth of a coworker's shifts (the ones that I am not working with them normally), and later next month, another weeks worth of another coworker's shifts. So, where do you work and what is your schedule like? If you work around the house, feel free to tell me about that, too.

Well, im working in a call center in Asia that caters tech support issues in the US. our normal business hours is from 8pm till 5am the next day, although we have a 24 hours support hours, our sched rotates every 2 months. we dont get to choose our sched not unless were pregnant or if you have medical instructions or when you go to school. Right now in on the morning shift from 7am to 4pm. its really a nice sched considerning you get to have enough sleep at night. The only downside is that, it doesnt have other benefits that the people working in the morning shift. Like hazard pay, Transportation and night differential. At the end of every payday, ur take home pay is half the pay u get when working in the night shift. So there are times when i wanted to be working at night then in the morning..its still all about the money huh?

I work in a Hospital as a Registeration COunselor. My work schedule is Monday-Friday 8:30am-5pm. And every 3rd Saturday. I love what I do but don't care much for the job or ppl I work with. But Ido it for the money til I can find something better. I'm currently in college right now getting a degree to help me get a better job as well. So I work during the day and at night i'm doing school work. So yes i'm pretty busy.

I work for a Company which does international trading and consulting. It is a very inetersting job I have. My normal work schedule is 8 to 5, five days a week. That is the normal schedule. But, just about every day, I have to stay on till about 7 or 8 pm. And, as necessary, have to work on the weekends too. So, by the time I get back home in the evening, I am just all set to go to bed ! Listen to my favortite classical music for about an hour to get rid of the days stresses, and then sleep !

Well, my work schedule is a little different than most! I work EMS and work on a normal fire department 24 rotation. I work 24 hours, then I'm off for 48 hours. I basically work 10 days a month, but it comes out to 240 hours a month (or an average of 60 hours per week). I go in tomorrow morning at 8am and I won't get off until Monday morning at 8am. It's a tough schedule to get used to, but it gives me lots of MyLot Time!

I work in a Jail and we rotate every 2 weeks from days to nights. Our shifts start at 7:15am or 7:15pm. We work 7 days every 2 weeks, which would be: Mon, Tues, Fri, Sat and Sun then Wed and Thurs. Not a bad schedule, we have plenty of days off to take care of anything, like laying out on the beach!!!

Well, I used to work 2 jobs, 1 full time, 1 part time. Life is too short..LOL The part time job boss offered me full time, so I took it and quit the 1st fulltime job. So now I work full time from home 5 days a week/40 hours per week.
