A good placel to work when the children were young.
Pros: being home with my children when they were young.
Cons: not getting enough sleep
I am a mother of 3 teenagers. I took time away from working in an office to work overnight, so that I would be home while they were still young. I stayed with Zellers/HBC as I liked the work I was doing as well as the people I worked with.
The night went by very fast as you were busy from the time you started to the time you went home. You did have a quota of skids to be emptied, but if you did your job you got your work done.
My first supervisor was not always a pleasant person, but I was there to work, not socialize. We hardly saw management, and yes, sometimes felt forgotten.
The people I worked with had a good sense of humour and made the nights pleasant.
The hardest part of the job was the physical aspect. I often had to pull my own skids on/and off the elevator. Some were over the recommended height, and the weight of some I felt was overly heavy.
The best part of my night, was when I was able to finish my work early and then help others. In return, they would come to help me if they finished early.
