The most stressful thing about working for George Tech 3rd shift is their poor management lack of communication poor professionalism they talk to you any kind of way they threaten you daily about missing days and think they can talk to you any kind of way especially the supervisor Donald Hamilton and their lead custodian is sorry as all out doors Dennis doesn’t like to work with you or help you claims he loves his staff but won’t fight for you they don’t use real chemicals I stayed breaking out the pay us the worst they have a first and second shift that doesn’t clean only spruce up as they call it the third shift is the only shift that cleans in zone 12 I wouldn’t recommend this job to no one nope not the third shift it’s like working on a plantation they don’t care bout you
The most stressful job is the very obvious attitude that staff does not matter. And this is felt all over campus.

Your graduate advisor having absolute power over when and if you graduate. A lot of them are arbitrary and unpredictable, have awful management skills, huge egos, and no oversight. I am not exaggerating when I say there was a culture of fear - out of probably 30-40 grad students in my department (most of whom I knew fairly well by the time I left) and about 20 others scattered in other departments that I knew, I can say that at least half to 3/4 were subject to textbook workplace bullying on a continuing basis.
