The new shift will start at many in the afternoon

In order to accommodate more customers, the supplier where I work is increasing their hours for the Wintertide season.

I work for a supplier that installs plus repairs heating equipment.

The busiest time of the year for us is during the Wintertide season. We have repairs, tune-ups, plus updatement appointments tied up every day of the week, and unluckyly, the sunlight hours are shorter plus both of us lose overpriced sunlight Most of the time the sun sets around 5, plus both of us lose a lot of sunlight hours. This year, both of us are going to start at 7 in the afternoon instead of 8. The boss said that the new Wintertide hours will help us complete more jobs before the sunlight hours are gone. We often run into issues with sunlight plus it’s taxing to see after dark, then even with a flashlight, it can be difficult to diagnose a heating problem. The extra early hour might seem like no sizable deal to most people, but that hour means that I have to get up a lot earlier for work. I have a 40 second commute in the afternoon to my job at the heating supplier. If I have to be there an hour early, that means driving in the same traffic that is going downtown for business. There is no way to avoid the traffic at that time of the afternoon. The new schedule for heating component repairs plus installations is going to be a pain in the butt. When Wintertide is over, the boss said both of us will go back to our official start time of 8am. Until then, we’re stuck with the early hours.
