What I liked

I liked how helpful and friendly all of my coworkers were, especially when it came to asking questions about the job and how certain things were done. Even though many of my coworkers had been there longer than I had, there was no feeling of a "hierarchy", like I was less qualified or able to do certain things. Obviously there were different positions, but someone with my title who had been there longer didn't feel like a superior.

What I wish was different

I would have liked to work slightly shorter shifts, perhaps 6 hours instead of 8. The job could be stressful at times, and at the end of an 8 hour shift I often felt rather drained.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions about how things work, especially if you're unsure/second-guessing about rules or regulations.
