12 Hour shifts can be good or bad
Crew Management (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB7 November 2017
Working with in the Network management center was a rewarding experience for me i beleive. The job worked in 12 hour blocks and rotated over a 6 week period, so one could conceivable expect a 7 day break every 6 weeks (mind you the lag time to get back to your regular life does take some time and takes awa y from that.(its made better id your 12 hour shift is the day shift and your days off are simply days off, but the night worker has to deal with a "Jet Lag" effect. The pay was great and overtime was always available. the crews the I personally worked with and managed their personal affairs were some of the best people Ive had the pleasure to know as were most of the upper manager to which I had to report to along with rail traffic controllers. All in all a good job.
Pros
rotatiing 12 hour shift schedule
Cons
few breaks while on duty, as you were in demand pretty much your whole shift
