I worked nights for a few years and loved it. As someone else said - night shifters tend to bond a bit more than day shifters. If he's able to adjust to working those hours, then it sounds like he'd be fine. The hardest part about having a child who is a night shifter (youngest DD is an EMT and works nights) is that during the day, you can't text/call them. You will have to learn to wait to talk to him. You'll not see him as often as you might now. Which in a way, is a good thing. DD is living at home, but because of the difference in our work schedules, we don't see each other much. Makes when we do more special - and gives her more a sense of independence and not so much "Living with parents".

In my own experience working night shift it is often what you have to do to pay your dues...which nobody likes but is reality. I would suggest trying it as long as he would be able to go back to his current job if it doesn't work out? Full time and benefits are a big deal and it might not be forever.

It sounds like your son is maturing and he should be making the decision. From my perspective, if he is a night owl, 3rd shift may be easier for him than first. I really don't see any cons. If he's not in school, he should be working 40 hours.\

He may also find that he has some time to volunteer in his chosen field.

He has actually offered to volunteer at a couple of the local TV stations, but theyíve told him they just use unpaid interns from the local colleges. He did an internship himself, but now they donít seem so much interested.

And, I agree that it would be lovely to have him work 40 hours. It would be good for him, and he could put away a lot of money.

Susan,

My guess is the local TV station gets compensated for having the college interns (either money or vouchers for classes). Can he work at a radio station?
