Before you apply to a night job, read about the advantages and disadvantages to working at night.
One advantage to working in the evening or overnight is that some workers enjoy less supervision and more individual decision making. In addition, there is less competition for jobs and promotions. Other advantages to night employment are more time with family, shift differential pay increase, and the quiet atmosphere.
Disadvantages relate to amount, time, and quality of sleep. Most shift workers only seem to find 5 to 6 hours sleep. Employees who work at night often find themselves out of touch with friends and the daytime world. It is hard to transition from a weekend daytime schedule to Monday when the nocturnal schedule begins again. Another problem with shift work is that employees have little contact with human resources to resolve employment issues. Finally, health concerns can arise from poor diet and insomnia.
Despite the disadvantages, some people actually prefer working at night; it suits their lifestyle or their natural disposition. Fathers can attend their children's school functions and parents can spend less money on daycare. There are many job boards that can be sorted by the keyword "3rd shift" to find night job listings.
