Pros: free lunches, days off depending on circumstances, friendly employers, etc.
Cons: little to no breaks, work times sometimes extended, busy atmosphere, etc.
A typical day for me would be to first workout which was required of all employees (PT), after that I would start work which would usually last a whole 8 hours depending on whether or not all equipment has been properly accounted for and/or placed within their respective stock areas. The best part for me was the breaks in which if the workday was not – more... busy would sometimes last 30 minutes to two hours. In my opinion my hardest part of the job would be operating the forklift as it would sometimes malfunction and move on it's own, and if that wasn't enough workdays would sometimes be extended due to poor stocking of equipment. My co-workers for the most part were friendly and honest and would often let me know whether or not I did my job in a timely manner or if I was just slacking. Overall, what I learned is that the faster it takes you to get the job done the more free time you've earned for yourself and practice makes perfect (working with certain tools ex: forklift, etc). – less
