Pros: compensation was fair, compared to similar jobs in the area
Cons: lack of consideration for shift work employees
A typical day for me was to find something productive to help the time pass more quickly. I was relied upon to ensure overall sanitation of the building, training detainees on how to operate floor buffing machines, and to take pride in the work they completed on a nightly basis. I am detail oriented, and was known as the "You missed a spot" lady. I also headed up our weekly potluck dinner, from planning the menu to emailing the list to all 3rd shift employees, to ensure maximum participation. My group of co-workers were very tight knit, for the most part. I enjoyed the feeling I got when I could make a daily To-Do List and mark the items off. The hardest part of this job was lack of support and leadership for us, line staff, and immediate supervisors, and the work schedule of working 6 nights on with 2 nights off.
