I worked as management working halves, mostly “second half”. Including turnover, it was 13 hour days, and we were “supposed to” be working 4 on, 3 off... but because the job was such a meatgrinder and Management staffing was so riciculously short, the attrition rate was quite high.

I found that day shift coasted... spent their time instant messaging other Technical Directors at other shops... writing “look at me” emails... and then when I came in at 16:30 for turnover, none of the production goals for first half were met... leaving me to try to “Save the Railroad”, every. f***ing. night.

I made a decent salary... but the hours sucked, the shift sucked, I had no life... and the 4 on, 3 off was only the “ideal”... it was more like 5 on, 2 off... or 6 on, 1 off.

I’ve had the 12 shift from 4am to 4pm. That’s a hard shift. 5 on, one off.
