In the line of work, I have learned that so far, everyone will have (for at least once) done a graveyard shift of some sort. In my case, the manufacturing of automotive PCBs, an SMT line (three in my case) never stop as cars sell day and night. Hence, our work group is divided into two teams (I know... crazy, but oh well) which switch shifts every 2 months. In essence we get a day shift from 7AM to 7PM and a Graveyard shift from 7PM to 7AM next day. Crazy? You bet. Worth it? After seeing my paycheck every 15 days, hell yeah! I must say my methods of coping with the graveyard have become more refined as time passes. First comes the gameboy, then the MacRumors browsing (explains my recent posting explosion) and finally a movie. Yes, my night shift is real calm. When you know how the machines work, everything can flow smoothly. What are your stories in the Graveyard shift and how crazy have they gotten? How do you survive your shift?
