I love my job... but I hate my work schedule. When my family is home, I'm at work. I can only have a weekend off if I take a vacation day. My kids are DS5, DD10, & DS15 and I'm missing all of those precious moments that I can never get back. As of now, I'm #3 on the seniority list (out of 10) to choose which shift and what days off I want, but because I'm also a trainer, I can't switch. Just to give you a little more insight, I work from 3 pm - 11 pm, with Thursdays & Fridays off in the law enforcement profession. If all goes well, I'll be out of this office and behind the wheel in the very near future. My hours will change from an 8 hour day to a 12 hour day...but I'll have every other Fri/Sat/Sun off. I wish I was with them right now.
