Shift Method of Work

Shift work is work away from your place of residence. Workers do not return home every day, but remain on site for weeks or months. The employer provides specialists with housing.

More detailed 

The rotation method involves working in a remote region from the place of residence, for example, remote camp jobs. But the shift does not always mean distant regions and specific tasks. For example, today this method of attracting employees to work at factories in large cities is gaining popularity.

A similar approach is often used in the oil and gas industry, repair and construction work, logging, etc.
Do not confuse the rotation method of camp jobs with the traveling nature of work or frequent business trips. These are fundamentally different forms of activity.
Conductors or flight attendants, truck drivers or freight forwarders do not work on a rotational basis.
A shift is time that includes only direct work. Rest at home and travel to the site are included in the rotation cycle, but are not part of the shift.


The advantage of a shift is that there are no costs for accommodation, food, or transportation. Working in this way, you can actually save up to buy a car, an apartment and other major expenses.
During the breaks between shifts, the employee can rest, restore health, travel, do housework and solve everyday issues.
