There are some downsides to working nights are often these are more for people that have to do it on a long-term basis. Shift working can be very anti-social. You may find that you are at work when everyone else is off work and that you have to sleep during the day. If you have a partner or children it may be that you get little time to spend with them as the days you are off they may be at school or work. It takes a while for your body clock to adjust to night shifts and you often find that on your days off, you struggle to change your sleeping pattern.
