Tonight marks the end of the graveyard shift. E*Trade is switching to VoIP, and our old phone system can’t function at the same time. I’ve spent nearly five years on this shift, dating back to CSFBdirect. I spent about five weeks on the day shift before I was brought back to where I belong. There is some talk about bringing the shift back in January when the phone system is built. I will definitely look at coming back if the shift is as good as it is now. I love working 4X10. I would love to do 2X20 or 1X40. Then I would have the rest of the week to recover. As of right now I am going to a modified swing shift. I will be working Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday from 11:30-10 pm. We marked the death of our shift with pancakes, a Chocodile and PS2. Agent Crawley worked us on the James Bond games. He is ruthless. I think he had secrect government training, but I haven’t been able to confirm that yet. Most of us will be on the same shift together, but it won’t be quite the same. It’s been a good run.
