On payday which is every fifty third hour, we work six and three quarter hours with the other one and one quarter hours being overtime unless there is a relief guy who hasn't worked his full tour, then he gets one half of his third of the overtime.

    I hope this helps.
    If a Tweedle Day falls on what would normally be a Farfel for that platoon, do you get Straight Time or Overtime??........ We get Straight for the Hours worked plus Comp Time at 50%...........

    shift

    24 on 24 off every other day for 3 , then 4 days off.,
    Monday, Wednesday, Friday, off 4 days.
    Wednesday, Friday, Sunday,off 4 days
    Friday Sunday Tuesday, off 4 days.

    lather , rinse, repeate.
    that is 56 hours per week avrage with 53 hours normal pay and 3 hours of scheduled overtime pay.

    We often work 24 hours of overtime on our 4 days off to cover for some one sick or on vacation.

    the department next to us works everother day for 5 days, then off 6.

    I once worked everyother day for 7 then off for 8, but I only know of one major city that does that.

    3 10 hour days, 2 off, 3 14 hour nights 4 off . Thats a 42 hour week which through "cycle time" is brought down to a 40 hour week. I would like to go to 24 on 72 off though.

    Four "groups" 168 hours in a week each group works 42 hours. Hint group 3 is the best one ...

    Work with the same guys each time.

    Our guys are 24 on/24 off, for 9 days. Actually work days are 5 per set, then 6 days off, then repeat.

    95% of the time you work with the same crews. Some change stations/rigs through a bidding process every quarter. Some stay, some change.

    4 Platoon:

    On
    Off
    On
    5 days off

    12 debits per year. I usually schedule them on my tweener day, so I can work a 72 and keep my 5 days.

    Sweet, we're still basing our shift change on the Myan calendar. Fortunately, I'm going to be off for several decades after December 21, 2012.

    How do your shift patterns work?
    They follow each other.

    Do you work 12 hour shifts?
    Concurrently, yes. We also work 24 one housr shifts.

    How do the shifts rotate?
    Widdershins.

    When do you work daytime and when night?
    We work daytime so long as the Sun is up. Once the Sun is down, we work nighttime until sunrise.

    Do you always work with exactly the same crew?
    No.

    The department I work for is 24 on 48 off. Works well and is nice because I have my 48 off to work on the IT company I own.

    Usually once in the morning, maybe one at lunch and then.......

    Oh, wait, my bad. You said SHIFT patterns, I though you said **** patterns...... you see how they kinda look the same.

    Both departments I've been with were 24on/48off. I like that schedule, but of course, I've never worked anything else to compare it to. The department I want to work at when I get out of the Marine COrps works a 24on/24off, 24on/48off, 24on/24off, 24on/96 off schedule. Sounds like a real sweet deal to me.
