    No set hours - he works random shifts on any day of the week. Can be anything from a 12 hour shift overnight to an 8-12 hour day shift. Start times vary...pretty much any time of the day, early morning, midday, afternoon, evening, late evening. It depends. We find out his shift at 3pm the day prior, there is no advance notice and no consistency.

    It is hard to answer as it varies so much. He works interstate/overseas for weeks/months at a time, when home his 'typical' working hours are 7am-4pm Mon-Fri but that changes according to how much work he has - so could be much longer hours or shorter.

    DH does graveyard shifts 5 days a week, has Sun/Mon off. He leaves around midnight and is home at about 10am. Occasionally the shifts might change but for the time being its graveyard.

    DH is at work from 5-5.30am until around 5-5.30pm monday to friday, although some days it's longer. Saturday he usually works 5.30/6am until around 2pm. He has not long taken on a Lab managers position and they are in the process of setting up a new lab, which is why he works such long hours. Once it all settles his hours *should* cut down to around 6/7am until 4/5pm Monday to Friday and a few hours some Saturday's.

    We own our business so sometimes he has to work longer ( especially as I'm not there!) but normally walks out the door at 8.45am and comes home between 6.30-7pm and Saturdays 7.30am and can usually get home by 4pm , Sunday's are rare but he may have to do the odd appointment for an hour or two during the day if needed

    Mine does 4x 12 hour shifts. He does 2 night shifts followed by 2 day shifts and then has 4 days off. So he only works 4 shifts every 9 days. It's great!
