I'm flipping through the classifieds, and places advertise 1st & 2nd shift..obviously they think this is common knowledge - so what are the hours of each shift? Thx

Really depend on the places. Some first shift start at 7:00 am + 8 hrs, for the next shift and so on...

First shift can start anywhere from 6-9 AM, but 7 or 8 is most common. Each company has its own system. The other shifts start 8 hours later.

Third shift isn't so bad if it starts on Sunday night. I liked 3rd better than 2nd.

"mids" , often called graveyard or 3rd shift - 11 pm to 7 am
"days", day shift/1st shift - 7am - 3 pm
"swings" , swing shift/2nd shift - 3 pm - 11 pm
