      -swing shift can be rough -management plays favoritism whether they want to admit it for not. -they blame you for not doing a full days work when their machines go down. -you almost never see your family -they place supervisors and managers in departments they have no idea to run. It runs it for everyone else because they dont knienwhat they're doin.
