When I got interviewed for my current job (5 years ago) I asked if I would have to work overnight shifts because Ive done that before and didnt want to do it again. They said I would not have to work overnight shifts. Fast forward 5 years and the current manager has pissed off all the people that were willing to work overnights so they stopped working them. Basically lots of policies were introduced that forced them to change their shifts and then the manager was disrespectful and talked down to them all etc... so they said screw it. So now the manager is forcing everyone else to work night shifts. I just got my new roster. Basically I work the thursday night 10pm until 6am friday. I come home and get 2 hrs sleep before waking up again in the late morning like I always do (I never sleep more than a couple hours during the day after a night shift). Then I get to bed again at midnight (most of my other shifts finish at midnight so this is when my bodyclock tells me to go to sleep again) but then instead of catching up on sleep that night I get to wake up 3 hours later to go to work and start at 4am. Then the next day I get to start work at 4pm and work until midnight. So they rostered me on super late to super early to late again . Which means over a 64 hour period I will get 5 hours of sleep. And I am required to work this roster. Other people are getting similar rosters in my workplace. Lots of people are in tears. Its a bit rough being told when choosing the job that you wouldnt have to work overnight. Only for them to wait until you have mortgages and cant quit, to then hand you a horrible roster and force you to do it. Wish I was making more money with my investments so I could tell them all to shove it. My quality of life and health is about to nose dive.
