not very high paced but long hours and rotating shifts
knife setter (Former Employee) – Moorhead, MN – February 19, 2016
the main thing i disliked about working here is the rotating shifts. you always work a twelve hour shift but it will go 3 day shifts, 3 days off, come back and do 3 nights, and have 3 off, 3 days, one off, 3 nights, 3 off. 4 days on, and then 7 days off. and then repeat that sequence every month. the reason i didnt like this, is it was messing up my ability to sleep having to readjust all the time. and the fumes in the building caused me to get sick quite often which i normally am rarely sick. the things i liked are that i was responsible for myself. and didnt have to be told anything. i worked at my own pace and had lots of down time on the job since i was so fast. we got breaks every 2 hours which was a big plus.
