Does anyone besides myself think TPG employees work all night?

I mean,,,, I must think that. I check the status of my submission before going to bed each night and then check again first thing in the morning. :) I have no other explanation except that I must think they must work all night.

    I recently (this week) got an email at 7:31pm pacific that my grades were posted, so I'm pretty sure they may at least have a partial swing shift

    I'm not sure we're all talking about the same TPG'er.

    I think all the bulk moderns are done on the overnight shift. The worker bees churn out those 69 and 70 all night long.

    It's like the graders are Santa Claus's elves and we're all waiting for our Christmas gifts in July! 😂

    an increase in production requires more hours and sometimes more shifts.

    Tiredness and eye strain can explain a lot of the generously graded materials out there.

    I don't want the grader grading my coins, doing it on a midnight shift!

    Mid shift grading could explain some of these "off-the-wall" grades that are given.

    I have my doubts about our host even having a swing shift, let along a mid shift.

    My wife says I work on my orders in the middle of the night, mumbling in my sleep :D I like to think they're so slow because they're having a difficult time assigning grades to MY coins.

    Back when I was at ANACS we used to be terribly backlogged doing photography, since were were still using the photo certificates, so we put on a second shift just in photography from 5 PM to 1 AM. Of course that meant that one of us senior staff had to be there to monitor things and lock up whenever we were done. THe next morning that person could come in a little late.

    My question is do they have people to pick up submissions at the po. My submissions have been sitting as registered mail in the TPG’s box for a couple of work days.
