    Is this on a regular basis? Because that's a fast turnaround!

    I agree that it's a fast turnaround, my job does the same. I'm curious to what others think.

    Been there done that. It sucks but you can do it. I don't think there is anything to fight, if your position is rotating then yes they can. Just stay up on Thursday and go to bed early. Make sure to stay hydrated, that helps too.

    I would not do that consistently. It would make me feel like crap. Employers will use you as much as you let them.

    They do try not to do that to us, but our hospital policy only states that you have to be off 8 hours between shifts and you can not work all three shifts in one week. Check your scheduling guidelines

    Not voluntarily. I switched to permanent nights to avoid rotation. And the job I had with rotating shifts I did not stay at long.

    that is what the schedules of the day/ night people are like where i work. I never said a word. The ones that do are no liked by management and viewed as whiners. depends on your management. It was awful . I would work day, night, night, off day etc. Is this a permanent schedule or does it change weekly?
