    See above.

    Re: Day, night and evening shifts.

    Most companies do not have the word "company" as part of their name.
    For example,
    Microsoft
    Tata Motors
    Lufthansa
    Johnson & Johnson

    Re: Day, night and evening shifts.

    Tufguy has been told over and over and over again to try using just "XYZ" or something like "[name of company]" but persists with "XYZ company". I, for one, have given up correcting that because it's a waste of my time.

    (There are, of course, a few exceptions with company names - officially, Coke is "The Coca-Cola Company".)

    Re: Day, night and evening shifts.

    At XYZ you have to work all shifts (Morning, evening and night).


    At XYZ you have work all shifts (Morning, evening and night). Is this sentence incorrect because I didn't use "To" after work?

    If you had used "to", it would have been incorrect.

    Sorry I didn't get it the first sentence is correct and second is incorrect. Second sentence doesn't make any sense to me either without "To" could you please explain me what does it mean please?

    Re: Day, night and evening shifts.

    Three shifts wouldn't be called "morning, evening, and night." First shift, second shift, third shift is used in an industrial environment.

    When I worked at a 24 hour restaurant we called them (1st)"daylight," (2nd)"night" and third shift was either "overnight" or "graveyard."

    Re: Day, night and evening shifts.

    I think most companies/industries have their own terminology. When I worked at an airport, we had four shifts - early, mid, late and nights.
