I was just reading about this kind of shift and overtime on another thread and was thinking too good to be true. I love to work just for the sake of working. I learn a lot from this site, but in experience, have found that when it comes to shifts, scheduling, etc., there is a lot of "discretion" involved., i.e., the person making the schedule will have a lot of part timers, etc. to fill in rather than have less full time equivalent personnel, sometimes this has had something to do (OBVIOUS IN THE WORKPLACE) with personal friendships. That is, one person can not get one job because so and so, a friend of so and so, who has pull in such and such a facility, has two full time jobs, or one full time and another part time, on-call, etc. job. Can be very disheartening. You know, it's not what you know (or your skills, abilities) but who you know.
