## shift window starts at 2 PM and ends at 10 PM

1) If somebody says to me that I have to work from 2 PM to 10 PM every day so can I say I used to work this shift window earlier as well?

2) Can we say "for this job shift window starts at 2 PM and ends at 10 PM" or "for this job shift window is 2 PM to 10 PM"?

You can't use "so" as a conjunction in a sentence that begins with "if". We've told you this many times before. Stop it.

Where did you get the idea of using "window" with "shift" from?

I saw an e-mail that had "shift window" written in it.

Are these sentences correct now?

So what does "shift window" actually mean?

The underlined part makes no sense. What are you trying to say?

2) Can we say "For this job, the shift starts at 2 PM and ends at 10 PM" or "For this job, the shift is 2 PM to 10 PM"?
With my corrections above, they are both OK, although I'd write "2pm" and "10pm".

Are these sentences correct now? See above.

It means nothing to me. You seem to be the only person who has seen it. No one here was familiar with it. You would have to ask the person who wrote it wherever you saw it.
See above.

Try:
I worked the same shift in my previous job.

Can I also say "my previous company had the same shift as this company"?

But that doesn't say anything about you working that shift.
