    You can write At XYZ you have to work all shifts. That's the sentence 2 I was talking about. It needs the to that I've set in bold​.

    OK, but what does "At XYZ company you have work all shifts" mean? Could you please explain me its meaning?

    Re: Day, night and evening shifts.

    It means you can't pick/choose which shifts you want to work/not work. You can't, for example, say "I won't work nights" or "I want to only work morning shifts".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It's not clear what that means as written. If you wrote ...you have to work all shifts..., I would understand it to mean that sometimes you have to work the first shift, sometimes you have to work the second, and sometimes you have to work the third.

    Re: Day, night and evening shifts.

    Apologies. My post #13 is misleading. I thought tufguy was asking for the meaning of "You have to work all shifts".

    Tufguy, "At XYZ, you have work all shifts" means nothing. It is completely incorrect without "to" after "have".

    If it doesn't mean anything then why you guys were saying that It would have been incorrect to use "To" in post#6 and 7? I mean when I asked you to explain its meaning to me then you started saying that it is correct. I am sorry guys if I am asking a lot of questions and making you uneasy but please understand that I am a learner. Again sorry for bothering you again and again.

    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?


    Because, in post #5 (quoted above), you suggested that you wanted to use "to" after "work". That would give the sentence "At XYZ, you work to all shifts". That means nothing.
