    5 8's with permanent days off. We bid once a year by seniority for the next year.

    We work a 4 on 2 off 8 hr schedule.

    For those that work the 12 hour schedule How do you like it??
    How difficult do you find filling any OT is?

    Same here, except the bidding. Everyone pretty much stays put unless someone leaves/new hire/other and the changes that follow are bid out.

    We work 14 shifts over a 28 day cycle.
    4-10 hr days M-Th
    then 7 off
    4-14 hr nights Th-Su
    then 4 off
    Split shift of 3-10 hr days F/S/Su followed by 3-14 hr nights M/T/W
    then 4 off
    ...
    back to the 4 days starting on Monday.

    We have 4 platoons, and unless there is a promotion or some interpersonal complications, everyone stays on the same shift.
