  1. Ethos forces us to work our 7 off so they don’t have to pay overtime. Its a complete crock of crap un my opinion.

  3. These weird work schedules are annoying. I want to work 8 hours a day at the same exact time 5 days a week with the weekend off like a normal human! LOL!

  4. How bout a 14 day stretch of 2 days on 2 days off

  5. I need to work out a 24/7 roster using 6 men over 12 hr shifts. 6am-6pm and 6pm -6am. Anyone out there have a fix for this? My head is about to explode. Must average approx 75 hrs per fortnight.

    • 7,-7,2,-2,3,-2,2,-3….

      we have 8 men here, that do 12 hour shifts, but looking at doing this schedule:

      7 nights in a row, 7 days off. 2 day shifts, 2 days off, 3 day shifts, 2 days off, 2 days on, 3 days off, repeat.

      basically works like this:

      Monday – Sunday Night Shift.

      Monday – Sunday off.
      Monday – Tuesday Day shift
      Wednesday – Thursday Off
      Friday – Sunday Day Shift
      Monday – Tuesday off
      Wednesday – Thursday Day Shift
      Friday – Sunday Off

      Repeat.

      14 days of work per month, 12 hour shifts. 168 Hours a month. 84 hours every 2 weeks.

      This allows for less sick leave to be used, less vacation time to be used due to the week off and easily can take more time off with use of less leave, etc. etc.

  6. need to work out 5 people 7a-7p; 7p-7a)…(4 F/T 36 hr wk and 1 P/T 24 hr wk and th P/T person can alternate day/night as long as spaced out and not back to back)
    HELP:))))

  7. On the DuPont schedule there is a 24 hr off time between days and nights. You finish up (for example) on Wednesday at 7 pm. Exactly when do you start the night shift – 7 pm Thursday or Friday?

  8. How do go about taking 2 week vacation on a 12 shift ???

  9. why doesn’t anyone EVER have this rotation?
    4 on 3 off 3 on 4 off 12 hours either day or night
    work M,T,W,T off F,S,S, Work M,T,W off T,F,S,S
    3×12 crew does all F,S,S
    I have NEVER EVER seen this as a solution, WHY??
