    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.
