After only 3 months at my new job (I do security for an auto auction) I was promoted to shift supervisor for 3rd shift. With the raise I get more money, the title of Sergeant, and only work 4 days a week instead of 5 (still 40 hours). Now, I do not mind working 2300-0700 since it is nice and quiet, but I find myself becoming very tired in the last 1-2 hours. The thing about my job is I work patrol, so for those 8 hours I am driving around 300+ acres of property at an average of 7 mph (not very exciting). Energy drinks and 5 hour energy do little for me.
What tricks do you all have for staying awaken during the graveyard shift?
Note: I usually sleep from 7:30 when I get home in the morning to about 1:30-3:30.
