Does Japan have employment with 3 shifts , 1st shift, 2nd shift and 3rd shift?

How would you say, "I work 3rd shift in Japanese"?

Here in the U.S. , working overnight is often referred to working the 'graveyard shift'. Is is also said it Japan?

We use 窶伉≫?敕? Hayaban = Early Shift and 窶凅窶敕? Osoban = Late Shift. For over-night shifts, we use the term 窶禿ゥ窶ケテ? Yakin, an abbreviated form of 窶禿ゥナ?テ披?ケテ寂?督ア, Yakan-kinmu, literally meaning "working during the night".

Just to add to Ashikaga's list. You can also say "窶懌?凪?卍シ" touchoku orツ "ツ宿窶卍シ" shukuchoku, both of these can be interpreted as "nightshift". Also "窶伉?出" hayde= Early shift and "窶凅ツ出" osode= Late shift.
