    Good luck on your interview.

    Eek 10 hour shifts. I used to hate working 9 ones at work. Thankfully don’t do those anymore.

      The first few weeks were a struggle for me, but I’m glad our company puts safety first before anything else. We get two 15-minute breaks (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) and one 30-min lunch break. For a standard 8-hr shift, most jobs only have one 15-min break and one 30-min (some 1 hr) lunch break, that’s it. And eventually here, you get used to it. I admit that I do get really exhausted by the time I get home, but luckily the distance commute isn’t that far. We also get a fresh pair of work/safety shoes once a year as mandatory dress code and also part of the perks. I got one cute Timberland sneakers (specifically designed for physical work) on the week I got hired (Dec. 2021) and I got a new cute Skechers pair just last week for 2022. We also get a chance to have career advancement training for free too (you can attend college/university, trade school, bootcamp, etc. and the company pays the tuition for free)… and a lot of other perks.

      Planning to transfer/advance within the company in the near future, which is why I enrolled in a bootcamp as mentioned in this entry. This also means that if I do land a direct tech job (which is what I’ve been trying to get back into for years now), I can also work at home too☺️
