    A job nobody wants to have because it's not worth the pay and they will stress you out,no matter what shift you work if you work first shift that starts from 6:30 Am to 3:00 Pm second shift is even worse that starts at 3:00 Pm to 12:00 Am, not only that it is a horrible job with long hours it is so lame that it makes you want to walk off the job and leave.
