    My first full-time gig after college is mediocre

    Patient Care Coordinator (Current Employee) Monroeville, PA (US)

    ProsYou a part of a big team so things are flexible. Great benefits - you accrue 20 days of PTO per year in your first year. Fairly easy to move up in the company.

    ConsHigh turnover. You lose some of your hourly pay if you switch to an earlier shift after you've been working a few months.

    Great Benefits. Poor Work/Life Balance on Second Shift

    Warehouse Associate (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat health insurance & overall benefits package

    ConsNature of second shift here is that you work until all orders are filled. There were times when that meant an extra four hours tacked on to the end of your shift. We had very hard workers and ran very lean. I get it-- That's what makes this division more profitable. But there comes a point when morale is so low due to poor work/life balance (how do you plan your personal life when you don't know if you will be able to get enough sleep to function the next day in your role as parent, spouse, partner, caretaker, etc?) that management needs to step up and not just give lip-service to getting you more help, but actually do so. Don't get me wrong-- The overtime money was great, but often not worth what I gave up in my home/personal life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink more creatively on how to make second shift hours a bit more predictable for your employees, and not perpetuate the "This is how it's always been on second shift" attitude.
