My ex and I share custody and placement...
Our arrangement actually works out rather well for us;
His work shift starts extremely early in the morning, then he usually gets done around lunchtime. I start work at eight am, and get done anytime between two and five pm. He picks the kids up from school and daycare each afternoon and keeps them until five thirty or six thirty, depending on the day. Early evenings, he brings them home to me and they have dinner with me, later evenings I pick them up after they've had dinner with him. We alternate weekends, solidly, and sometimes he takes them overnight during the week once. (He has to find someone to watch them and get them to school or daycare in the morning, since he's already at work.)
This works well enough for us. The older kids get to see Daddy every day after school instead of going to a sitter, yet they have the stability of knowing where they'll be sleeping during the week. Also, we both get to see the kids and they get to see both of us almost every day.

Good luck.
