    I worked at Praxair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fair treatment, lots of overtime opportunities. The work is relatively simple but necessitates attention to detail.

    Cons

    A lot of mandatory overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Bite the bullet and shift to the 12 hour schedule. People will complain but they already complain. They’ll appreciate the extra days off once they’re used to it more.
