SeriouslyEvery tells us more.

OP here. I assure you I follow directions very well. I asked and he told me AM, so I got ready until my brother, who also just started there, assured me it was PM

Though you made a mistake, good on you for being organized. Having this feature will definitely help you in the long run, OP

That sucks! But at least is better than having it backwards and missing orientation. Besides, it makes a good story ;)

6 is really early I understand 8 but under that just no.

Lots of workplaces don't have time and have to fit meetings early in the morning.

I have a job that opens at 4am and sometimes I would work at 3am of we were busy.

Sometimes my husband's shifts start at 5am and he has to wake up around 4, so 6am is not even that bad

I start at 0530 and work until 1815. Which has me up at 0300 to get ready and get to work. So it's not that early, or that difficult. It sucked at first but is very possible. I miss being a night owl though.

No, #26, Brightbulb works backwards in time to the years 530, 1815, and 300.

Thunder it's 24 Time. The military uses it, almost everywhere that's not the US uses it, and most jobs where there is a swipe system for time use it.

Zombie, having worked 1st, 2nd, and 3rd shift, I think that I've started work during all 24 hours of the day at one point or another.

Personally I think we ought to use the 24 hour clock to minimize situations like this.

Most everyone in this thread is going to work as I'm crawling into bed. I love second shift, but I hate being pulled over near midnight and having some numb nuts cop asking if I "have a reason for being out this late". Yeah, your mom couldn't fit me until just now.

ydi for not following directions. duh.

I'm pretty sure op did follow instructions. They were told 6, they showed up at 6, chances are nobody specified am or pm.

Now you have an ice breaker and an excuse to get coffee. What more do you need?

My place of work opens at 6 am weekdays and Saturday, and 8 am on Sunday. Having it first thing doesn't sound unreasonable. Do training and then get floor experience.

Not sure if YDI, really depends on the job. If it's a bakery or finance for example, 6 am would entirely make sense, and they should've made it more clear which 6 they mean. For many other jobs, 6 am would be very unusual. For example, a retail store or bank that opens at 10 am would usually not ask you to come at 6 am, no one is ever going to be there that early.

I don't know about others here but I've worked every hour of the day and night for my employer by working 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and bridge shift. I've worked 8, 9, 10, 12, and 16 hour shifts on every day of the week and weekend. Not every place of business is a 9 to 5 place.

I work in retail and I promise you people get there WAY before we open. We have stockers work 4am to 1pm. Then there's the stocker cashier who works 6:30am-3:30pm. My team leads come in around 7:15 to count drawers. I'm not sure what time the administrator comes in but probably around the same time. Tons of other people come in hours before opening so that they can get shit together before we open. I normally only come in 10 minutes before opening so I can count my drawer and be ready for customers. But I normally come into a full store.

Hahaha I'm sure this has happened to most of us, don't sweat it :)

Be honest, OP, you woke up at 3:45, thinking you'd need to be there by 6, because you liked the way 3, 4, 5, and 6 were in chronological order. That's the real FML, but you don't have to hide from us, OP. We accept you. We understand you. (Psst, grab the Sertraline. I'll pin them down!)

Whatever, you live and learn, much better than having the opposite occur OP
