Usually third shift works at a very lax pace depending as to whom is supervising that particular shift. Two or three excellent tech's but unfortunately the rest need better training. In my opinion those of us that are still working and living a productive life should have better preference than those that are going back to a nursing home. Since after our 4 hours of treatment we have a home life to return to.
