    Unhappy Shift work

    This is my first question in the forum, so if I make any mistake I'm really sorry about it.

    My question is:

    About the word shift work. First of all how is it written? Shiftwork or Shift work.

    My second question is: How to explain working in this situation? to work in shift work or what?

    And if you use it for a company is it possible to say "It works in shift work"? The company works 6/24 except Sunday.

    Re: Shift work

    I'm not sure what you mean by 6/24 exactly. I would specify that they worked two 12-hour shifts (or three 8-hour shifts) six days a week.
