Shifts are 12 hours long, which at first seems appealing as you get more days off but they are tiring, especially switching from days to nights constantly. However, due to this, you do get 25% bump in your wage taking it from about 16k to 20k.

Its a lottery which team you get placed on, some are absolutely amazing and supportive with great supervisors, - more ... others very much form their own groups and leave you out, with horrid team leaders. Made some life long friends here though.

Overall, a good experience for yourself and CV, will make some good friends I imagine but the hours are long, the job ... - less
ProsGood team mates, good progression if you want it, good experience
ConsLong hours, stressful job, gambe if get bad team mates
