Pros: minimal supervision, no customers to deal with
Cons: physical job, can get very hectic
I worked at NBC a few times as a temp worker. The pay wasn't great, and I was on my feet all day, but I didn't have to interact with customers, and as long as you get your job done, no one really bothers you. This is a good summer or winter break job for students, although I'm not sure it's something most people would want to do long-term. The floor is really hard on your feet, plus there is a lot of climbing up and down ladders and bookshelves. During the busy seasons, things can get extremely hectic, and there are lots of opportunities for overtime. For stockers, overtime is typically mandatory, but it's optional for pickers. Everyone there is very nice, and the supervisors don't micromanage. I'd say this is an above average warehouse-type job and great if you don't like interacting with customers, but bad if you don't like being on your feet.
