I love this job. We package orders for many different companies, so the work is fast paced and different every day. I'd definitely choose this job again, and wish I had started it years earlier. As mentioned, the pros are that the job is fast paced, there is little interaction with the general public, you're mostly working on your own, and there's a lot of responsiblity to see that everything goes out 100% correctly. The things I see as pros could be cons to others that have a problem with self-motivation, would prefer a slower paced atmosphere, or love continuous contact with the public.
In the 18th and 19th century, hatmakers used poisionous chemicals including mercury in their work. As result, many developed pathological symptons -- an estimated 10% went insane. Hence the term "mad as a hatter" and Lewis Carroll's character, the Mad Hatter.
