With recent down sizing I just inherited 18 directs.

Now I have a total of 34. This seems overwhelming to start doing one on ones.

Weekly meeting seem unlikely, I don't know/

I haven't started O3's, but I have been making plans to get started before in my staff doubled.

Any suggestions on how to handle this large group?

I'm also in a technical repair business, where most techs would rather be left alone.

 Try raising up 'leads' in each group.  One in the 3rd and 2nd shifts, and 4 in the 1st shift.  That way you don't have to manage 34 relationships, but everyone is getting what they need, and your 'leads' are getting professional development like they hadn't anticipated.
