Job Description

Environmental Specialist I

Chandler, AZ (Sunny Arizona)

Alternative Work Week (3/12) Shift: 6 am-6 pm

Why a 12-Hour Work Shift Can Be Appealing. It is possible to have more days off during the week because you’re working four additional hours compared to those who have a standard eight-hour gig. If you put in three days of work, then you’ve already put in 36 hours for the week. You will work three days in one week and four days the next. That means you have more days to manage appointments, after-school activities, and even weekend trips. There is some paid overtime at time and half. You will have fewer commuting expenses. Fewer days of child care to manage, time to pursue a hobby, and additional moments of self-care for some weeks you will be getting a four-day weekend instead of the traditional two-day option booked into many work schedules. We will rotate the weekend and holidays with your co-worker and have some flexibility to switch off with each other. Allowing you more flexibility with your overall schedule. This can be an ideal situation for those who like to volunteer in their community or attend college classes. It can even be a way to spend more time with family if you can have everyone else coordinate their schedule around yours. If this 12-hour work shift appeals to you please read further.
