    the second shift

    The workers work the second shift at this factory.

    1) I know 'workers work' doesn't sound good, but can't think of another verb. Could you suggest one?
    2) Should there be any preposition with 'shift', like 'on the second shift'?
    3) Is the second shift the same as night shift?

    1) I know 'workers work' doesn't sound good, but can't think of another verb. Could you suggest one? I can. It is "DO"
    2) Should there be any preposition with 'shift', like 'on the second shift'? It may be "in" but it does not have to be.
    3) Is the second shift the same as night shift?Not sure.

    Factories in the UK often run

    6:00 am - 14:00pm
    14:00pm - 22:00pm
    22:00pm - 6:00am

    shift patterns.

    So no, the second shift isn't usually considered to be the night shift.
