    I'm considering signing a 22.3 Combo bid for Twilight/Midnight shift. When does this type of shift start for the week and end for the week? Would I be required to work a midnight shift on Monday and then come back in that night for Twi/Night? What about Friday? Would I be required to come back in that evening to work twilight?

    Thanks in advance.

    Here's an idea, ask your supervisor who will have the details on the exact bid you're wanting to sign

    The specifics such as those you ask are usually on the bid sheet that you sign up on.

    Thanks Baba for sharing your experience.

    The bid sheet simply states Twilight Package Handler/Midnight Irregs. One of the "guidelines" says: "Job shift times will be posted on Friday for the following week but may vary from day to day." No specific days or times. I plan to ask a sup about it; I just wanted to see if others knew how the shifts worked.

    Sign up. Ask all questions when hr calls to confirm your interest

    The vast majority of twi-mid combo jobs are M-F 6pm-3am, in our hub. I've worked several of these jobs and that's my current bid. I prefer working early mornings preload/air driver and having the late morning/ afternoons off.

    This is the 22.3 that I am thinking about bidding.

    Thanks Sleeve--that's the kind of answer I was searching for.

    It's not my first choice for hours, but I really want to go back to the building. I loved the hours for PT preload and PT exception air, but I needed more consistent full-time hours hence the reason I went FT package car.

    I worked midnight/preload for a while, and I worked Sun-night(just a couple of people there, kinda eerie) thru Thursday night and got Friday night shift off. Your results may vary.

    Yeah, if your seniority date is newer, may want to consider riding it out in PC a few more years. I have just under 10 FT and just beginning to have some options open up. Of course ymmv.
