    Honestly, after 5 years of night shifts I'm ready for a normal 8-5.

    i like swing shift during the winter, day shift during the summer. Day shift at my job is 7:20-15:30... and to commute I have to leave my house at 6am. At any rate, getting off before 4pm is nice in the summer... still LOTS of daylight left. During the winter, its dark when I enter the building and getting dark by the time I get off the bus. Pretty crappy. Swing (3:30-11:30), at least I can do stuff in the morning... that and I get paid 10% more. :thumb:

    I dont mind working graveyards (11pm-7am) but I normaly only do it a few days a week. It is nice getting home in the morning and having as much daylight as you need to work on stuff before going to bed.
