Day shift is split into A and B, with each working three 12 hour shifts and a half day on Wednesday split between the 4 shifts. However we've been on mandatory overtime since March which makes it three 12 hour days and three 8 hour days. Frequent schedule experimentation leads to confusion and frequently we arent told about mandatory overtime till the very last minute.

Not enough hours to survive. Working 1-14hr day per week isn't enough. Quit 8 weeks after starting.

We had a temp that was sent through an agency who had served time in prison for distribution (felony). Everyone knew about his background, but he was a decent worker and was in line to be a trainer. He only quit because he found another warehouse that paid 25% more per hour.

They don't really train. You will be shown how to drive a forklift and given a few days of guided instruction but it will only cover a fraction of what the job entails. Then you are thrown to the wolves and expected to perform like someone who has been there 6 years.

4th shift is currently 5:30pm-4:00am Fri-Mon, with Tuesday (usually) being voluntary if you want overtime. During the holidays (October-January) we worked 7pm-7am pretty much 7 days a week. Floor supervisors had your back, so while the brass stated that at a minimum 6 12hr shifts per week were "required", if the supervisors felt as if you were too tired or too ill to do the job safely, or you had family commitments they would do everything they could to make sure to keep you from burning out/getting sick.
