I live in Florida where it gets hot (seems like !00* plus with the humidity). I was hired 3pm to 11pm but traded shifts so I love working graveyards, no people or very few to give you a hard time, quiet, cool and no traffic. I've got black drapes on my windows, the a/c down to 76*, the kids (young adults) go to school (not now 'cause of summer vacations) and the wife works durring the day. Nobody home to wake me up. Working 11pm to 7am gives me time to be here and navigate the web, can't beat it.
Why?? Because at the last second, the Police are minutes away.
Not on a shift..... Retired.......

i used to do night shift but i quit from them coz life is get bored by night shift................
When I started in aircraft maintenance I usually ended up on swing or mid shifts, which was fine since there were fewer supervisors around and you could get more accomplished with less interference. As aircrew there were no shifts since we were usually released for 12 hours after landing then had to be ready for takeoff at the end of our crewrest. After retiring I took a job driving a truck again no shift work you grab the load and get it to the consignee at whatever time they want it. Retired now but my circadian rhythm has never recovered

Night shift is ok if your single................... Ooops !! Lol.
Worked 4 to midnight while I was in college. Then had to get up for an 0800 class. Didn't always make it.
For 18 years I worked 3-11:30 Sun-Thurs. The last two years Ive taken a Management position and its 7-3:30 M-F. Its taken until just recently to feel normal. I really miss the swing shift. And Id have to say my wife misses it too! I went to all the kids daytime functions, Had weekends off Fri, Sat, and Sun till 3:00pm, and most important to the wife she had till midnight to get to sleep before I started snoring! DR
