I had experience with shift work in the Army.  The worst experience was when my group was required to suddenly do a 180 degree change in our clock schedule, up all night, sleep in the day. Bad. Fortunately, it was a short assignment. Even otherwise, the regular changes of work hours was a problem. Normally, I would have adjusted my sleeping hours ahead somewhat each day to keep up with it, but that proved impossible due to noise in the barracks, and I ended up sleeping a lot in the library. The best way to deal with shift work is not to have it. Otherwise. it would be optimum that one has a place to sleep that is sleepable-in 24 hours a day, such as a remote room sealed off to all outside interference.
