shift shock

(名詞/可數) 輪班衝擊 - 當你開始一份新的工作但發現該工作或公司並沒有你期望的那麼好時感到驚訝和失望的情緒。

Shift shock can come as a result of different working hours to the ones you thought you would have (perhaps you were told in your interview you’d “probably” be working 9-5, Monday to Friday, but were advised to be flexible to meet business needs… then you got started and learned you’d be working every weekend), having unexpected responsibilities on your to-do list or discovering that a company’s culture isn’t as lovely as it appeared.
