I hate Thur/Fri... Despite being slow traffic Sat night is ALWAYS short staffed and it is impossible to get any spot leave.Thur fri is good if you can get it. Don’t have to work till sat late so you can chill with your irl friends Friday night with no qualms. Then Sunday you don’t have to be in till 1 or so so you can go
Get a couple Saturday night if you want
Those along with FRI/SAT and SAT/SUN went quick during bidding, at my first facility (level 8 up/down). I couldn’t believe that as a new hire and newly certified CPC I had SUN/MON off, until I transferred to a larger facility. HOL, SUN, and ND were the only premium pay you could get as OT was completely non existent. (Example: I worked more OT here, in the first two weeks, after certifying on a few radar positions, than I did in 3.5 years at an up/down.)No mids here so best days I've had are Mon/Tues.
Sweet! Thanksgiving or Christmas is already gone by the time it gets to me in R1 and both are long done by R2. I bid MON/TUE (no mid this year) so most of my holidays are day in lieu of and paid on Wednesday’s shift. I went through and bid the SAT and SUN off before each holiday so I could have that weekend off and still be paid for the holiday. (SAT-TUE off for MLK Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, and Veterans Day).This year I ended up getting Tues/Weds, and hit the prime time lottery by getting Thanksgiving and BF off. Christmas Eve,Christmas day and NYE, New year's day both fall on my RDO's, having 3 holidays in a row that's nice especially with a family.
