Among the latest craze nowadays is being employed as a call center agent. People from different courses, of different status, grab the opportunity to have a high paying job in these call centers. It’s easy enough to get through due to the high demand in the business. Though it is a requirement that an applicant be well versed with the English language and skilled with the use of the gadget you’ll be using, the computer, it is important to be reminded that it is a must that you have the capability in withstanding the night shift or the so-called graveyard shift.

Passing by the distinctive areas where these centers are located, one will find individuals, mostly of the middle age group, having their coffee-breaks and “yosi”-breaks (cigarette smoking) at the wee hours of the night to ward off the sleepiness one needs to combat in this job specification. It’s no wonder the pay is mighty high in comparison to day jobs…PEOPLE ARE MADE TO SLEEP AT NIGHT! I was told that there is a certain effect in our system specifically the REM sleep (rapid eye movement) that is worthy of that differential pay.

Now, in my opinion, if one would get sick with this GY shifts…it isn’t worthy of the pay you’ll be getting and be using it only to buy you medicines if not to pay the hospital when you get admitted. But if you’re a night person…you definitely are fitted to this kind of job!

There must be a reason as to why God created day and night, working the GY shift certainly has its drawback, for instance,ever heard of melatonin? Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain that helps regulate other hormones and maintains the body's circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm is an internal 24-hour time-keeping system that plays a critical role in determining when we fall asleep and when we wake up. Darkness stimulates the production of melatonin while light suppresses its activity.

Melatonin also helps control the timing and release of female reproductive hormones. It helps determine when menstruation begins, the frequency and duration of menstrual cycles, and when menstruation ends (menopause).

Many researchers also believe that melatonin levels are related to the aging process.

Of course there are many other problems about working the GY shifts.

I think they don't really have a choice.Ö They need to put food on the table so I guess it's really a common thing these days. With a lot of jobs lost because of the effects of recession, I'm not surprised that there are more and more people who opt to work at call centers. Kudos to them, despite how difficult their shifts may be, they still continue to work hard.Ü
