Pros: good management, good free time, occasional free time
Cons: fire drills are a hassle, poor resident handwriting
A general shift generally involved scanning any number of resident's IDs and admitting them into the building, and taking the IDs of guest of residents. Records of overnight guests would be transferred over by hand, and occasionally phone calls would be taken for questions. Management was always nearby and easy to talk to, and co-workers were usually a phone call away. The most difficult part of the job was when the fire alarms would go off and everyone in the building would have to clear out. To be honest it was more of a hassle than anything difficult. By contrast, the best parts of the job were the early morning and late night shifts where traffic was at its minimum, leaving plenty of time to just relax.
