I currently work in one of the biggest rdc in the uk on permanent nightshift which starts at 8pm till 430am 6 days a week.
I enjoy work 80% of the time, my colleagues are great, coming from loads of different backgrounds and are easy to get along with. We do work well as a team but there are downfalls to the job. With nightshift having the least amount of workers we have a lot falling on our shoulders, such as finishing the picks previous shifts couldn't be bothered to do and having to do our own also.
Shift allowance is not given and this causes many people to leave due to this, as we are still getting paid the same as the other shifts which isn't fair due to working insociable hours.
Management are great and help you anyway they can.
But training is non existing
Friendly environment. Great management
No shift allowance, only get weekends off once every 6 weeks. Long working week.
