6pm to 6am :\ That stomps all over the "going out" hours! would be alright if it was like 10pm to something, then you'd be able to atleast go out a bit before work (obv I don't mean getting drunk, juts hanging out).

Eh, my social life is dead since I left school anyway. Now there's matter of getting the job with no experience and no qualifications...

K, I'll apply tomorrow.

It's not a 12 hour shift! It's just sometime in between then. It could easily be 11pm - 6am.

The cool thing is you can either stay up when you get home or go to bed, depending on what's going on that day.

The bad part is over time it takes six years off of your life.

Every now and again I work them. They're fun as a rare occurrence, but I'd hate them if I had them regularly.

Worked nights for 10 years. Been 7-8 years since then and I still cannot sleep properly at night or get up early in the morning and you can definately kiss your social life goodbye. Go for it by all means, just don't get stuck in a rut and keep doing it for years on end like I did

Arg, I do bar shifts that won't end until about 4am, at which point I grab a bed in the hotel where I work because I have to be back in work at 8am.
My Saturday/Sunday schedule is often in from 4pm till 4am Saturday, then 8am to 6pm Sunday.

I used to work "lates" for the Post Office sorting mail.

Yes your life will get turned around, but I found myself socialising with the crowd from work, chefs, barstaff and other nocturnals.

I can't do nights, granted my shift pattern rotates and I get 1 midday, 2 earlys, 2 nights and 1 midday.

Sometimes those nights are 10 at night till 6 in the morning. When you get home it's light, and sleeping when it's light isn't natural. I get migraines, I can't eat, I get generally ill easier, lose weight and just cannot muster any energy to do anything on my time off.

I got myself taken off overnighters and my night shifts finish at 1 in the morning. All of a sudden I'm much healthier.

Your average waking hours would then mean more L4D2 with Brit GTers as well soap.

I have. I actually enjoyed it. Be prepared to have most of your social life be online, though. You really get a lot of time to finish the things that you've wanted to get done, though.

One of my friends works in the evening (3pm-10pm). Another friend's father leaves for work around 9:30pm, so we often chill at his house in the middle of the night. Who knows, maybe you'll still be able to chill with people and work the night shift.
