I will be switching to 12 hour day shifts at work.
I will do a 0.6 FTE. So that is two days a week. Hours are 9am to 9 pm.
I'm allowed to somewhat choose my own schedule. I have to do four 12's in two weeks. My boss said one day has to be a Saturday or Sunday. So, 1 of the 4 shifts should be a weekend.
What would you choose? Kids are 16 and 18 so they will be fine.
Also, I will see if I can negotiate working every Friday instead of the weekend day. Sometimes they allowed that in the past.
IF that is possible I was thinking every Tuesday and Friday.
|Given the choice would you rather work every * other* Sunday 9-9 OR every single Friday 9-9?
If it's not possible, what would you suggest?
Week one Tuesday and Thursday
Week two Tuesday and Sunday.

Well I haven't really worked 12's before. So I am wondering if there are any tips, suggestions from those who do.
Well, if you don't have a preference yet, you could let management make your schedule around everyone else. That's what I did when I worked full time with very few other commitments.
Your co-workers will love you for it because they'll be more likely to get their requested schedules.
