The work was always different and presenting a new set of challenges for each night. That diversity meant you were constantly learning something new about how to set up and install things, which will come in handy down the road.
After the 4th store of the same projects as the previous 3, it does tend to get old, especially because of the lack of care given to the equipment you have to use (beams being bent to extremes/dented, lack of tools, etc.). When we were offered training for power equipment (forklifts, pallet jacks, etc) we almost never got approved to actually do it because "we already have people qualified for that on this team" despite them not always being there and possibly wanting to move to different teams/job titles that would require said training.
Advice to Management
Don't have unrealistic expectations about how many projects your team can do in a night when many of them require 100+ hours of work put in. Also, don't assume that your associates know everything, and don't get frustrated at their dedication to finishing a project that took longer than estimated so it would be done correctly and not abandoned and passed on to the next guy.
