Unique working environment that recognized self motivators as well as those who followed guidelines.
Pros: liberal paid time off, and generous benefits
Cons: lack of sufficient staff to handle off-shift hours
Began each shift learning what existing problems, issues or concerns were unresolved by exiting shift. Standard procedures concerning mainframe reliability were reviewed and acted upon as part of a team of cooperative coworkers. Processes were monitored for efficient and reliable throughput for users.
The hardest part of the job was acclimating to a 3-night/14-hour shift, followed by 4 days off. Whereas the most enjoyable part of the job was having 3 days off each week.
