In search of:

facilities 7 and above, that are not 24/7. I know they are few and far between. My circadian rythym is of the utmost importance.

It's possible to work at an ATC-12 center without ever working a mid your entire career. And if you do happen to work one, you split the shift with your buddy and sleep for half.

DVT, VNY, LGB, SJC, TMB, BJC is a 6 but recall the rep asking about upgrade info so they might be getting a bump. That's all I can think of right now.

You’ll have to look for mid level facilities that aren’t a major city such as: RSW, SAV, PVD, MYR, GSP, etc.

GFK is the only level 9+ that isn't 24 hours.
DVT, MOB, MYR, RSW, SAV, SFB, SNA, TMB are the level 8 facilities that aren't 24 hours.

No mid your whole career? That seems unlikely. We can’t even make it through a sides without working mids.

Even if you get a facility with mids it’s usually pretty easy to swap them out. There’s always that one person or two who prefers them. I think I’ve worked 4 mids in the last year and swapped the rest of them.

Give me all your mids!
