No, but they let me call for a sound check.
I would say "Sound check." and then I would count to three in my head.
Then someone would say "Loud and clear."
Sometimes I would purposely leave out my ID number when I call in so they have to tell me to use it and drag out the conversation for an extra sentence, in retro spec it seems pathetic but at the time it was the highlight of the night.
The walls weren't much for conversation.

I don't know, I guess it takes a certain type of person to do that job.
Whenever you see a guard starting fights with bystanders on the news this is most likely why. They know where the cameras are pointing but they give up.

It may have also been where I got the habit of plucking hairs from my beard.
I think improving the working environment could be as simple as making soft back ground music mandatory.

that made me laugh so hard (not at your expense), because it's also a habit of mine when I get really bored.

Radio is an endless stream of verbal diarrhoea and commercials broken up with made-to-sell music.

I used to work the Graveyard shift for a cleaning company working for Amazon. It was a sweet little job, my duties were fairly simple & no managers to check up on me I remember It was lunch break so I went to get some Wendy's & i was like "my cars dirty... Guess i'll go wash it now that im out". lol That break lasted over an hour

Worked it for a few months in the military (Air Force). Despite what people may think aircraft maintenance is 24 hrs a day 5 days a week, sometimes weekends. When deployed it's 24/7 from the minute you get there til you leave. It's probably the best shift (11 PM - 7 AM) since you never have to deal with hot weather during the summer and during the winter the weather is usually a lot more calm at night (ie less windy).

Man you must work at a crappy Target. I have been working overnight at Target fr the last three years and I love my job. Instead of complaining about your job just find some things to enjoy about it...if you only look for negatives and complain about what you don't like and why your other jobs were better you will NEVER like Target (or any job).

Working overnight is easy to do once you get the schedule down...as a matter of fact stating at 10 P.M. would be a hell of a lot easier than starting at 3:30 like I do. I will not say that Target is the best company to work for...but I know there are far worse atmospheres to work (looking at you Fred Meyer). So just take a chill pill, relax and try to enjoy yourself. If you do it should get better. If not at lest it is only seasonal.

That's the truth More than 20 years ago I worked that same shift and had the same reaction. I hated it although I';d done the same stuff elsewhere. But the store I started my retail life in folded and I moved south to get a better job and raise my kids. The whole hierarchy of Bitches and 1 male pushover leader. And to this day I don't shop at Target ever
