I work 84 hours in one week then one week off. 12 hours a day for 7 days.

I wouldn't mind something like that. Granted, I'm not looking for retail, but if retail's where I end up, I'm looking for this schedule.

I think that's pretty common in hospital staff pharmacists too

Currently have 9 pharmacists and 7 shifts. We rotate through each and change every week, then have a week off on the 7th week. Also work a weekend once every 2 months. Not bad!

1) 23:30 - 07:30
2) 05:30 - 15:30
3) 06:30 - 14:30
4) 07:30 - 17:30
5) 10:00 - 18:00
6) 16:00 - 24:00
7) Week Off

I stay until the work is done though. Being salaried, you can end up getting the short end of the stick, but I'll never leave a fellow co-worker pharmacist swamped with work.

That's one strange rotation for a drug rep.
