RE: [Histonet] Work hours

From:"Trajkovic, Dusko"

When we had the 10 hour days implemented, half of the crew would be off on Friday and the other half on Monday. We would switch off each month. During that switch weekend, one group of people would have a four day weekend and the other only a regular two day weekend.

I might be biased on this subject, but I personally do not feel that there are any cons with this set up. I found that I could accomplish more in 4 days than in 8hr/5 day week.

How do you decide who gets which days off! Are they floating days?

I have tried it.
  Cons: If yu don't have a flow of specimens in 4 days equivalent to the flow on 5 days, the personnel will be idling some time each day. If specimens or workload is available everybody will have work to do.
  Pros: it is fantastic having 3 days off weekly. Everybody likes that!

  I was wondering if anyone in histoland has experienced moving from a schedule of standard 8 hour day/5 days a week to a 10 hour day/4 days a week with techs having a day off during the week. If so, what are the pros and cons of this type of schedule. I'm interested in feedback from both bench techs and supervisor/managers. We are in the initial stages of contemplating this and would appreciate info from anyone that has tried it. Thank you.
