    Thanks for the responses - keep them coming. There is a hypothesis behind this poll, but I do not want to influence voting

    Won't touch anything if it is not 12 hour shifts.

    I prefer two to three 12's dayshift per week because I like having the days off in between or all together.

    Thank you for all the replies. Great job! Why do you think 188 people have viewed the poll, but only 44 have voted?

    Hi - Thanks for the feedback. I did not include 10's because they are not as common - same with 4 hour pick ups. 10's may be a great shift and I am glad you are happy with it! Thanks for the thoughts!
