My team at work is going to divide us into two shifts starting next week. There will be a “day shift”, which will be from 10am to 6pm and then a “night shift”, which will be from 1pm to 9pm. This will be done to increase the number of hours that engineering will be available to fix a bug if QA finds one.
I’ve been on teams that have done this before and it’s generally well-received. There’s always several engineers who prefer to start their work day later, so this is great for them. We’ve been given a sign-up sheet where we can state our preferences for the next month or so. I don’t really have a preference this time around. I’m fine with either. I’m just glad we don’t have to work too much OT.
If we do have to work some OT, I’ve now been added to my team’s Uber Eats business account. Should I need to work late, I can now order food via Uber Eats, and my meal charged to the business account, rather than my personal account. That’s quite convenient. I’m hoping to not need to use that account too many times but at least it’s there. The budget is $25, which isn’t a whole lot but at least it will get you something.
