Pros: very little supervision, trust, and responsibility
Cons: long shifts
On a typical day at work, I would arrive at 10:00 PM and do a walk-through of the hotel after counting the drawer. I would lock the pool area and check to make sure the exterior doors were locked and working properly. The person whose shift I was relieving would tell me anything important that might come up, and I would check to see how many reservations were still outstanding. After they left, I would be alone, except for the guests, until 5:00 AM when the cook would show up to prepare breakfast. If the cook was late or absent, I would prepare the breakfast in addition to my other duties.
My duties included doing a nightly audit, as well as handling cash and credit transactions. I also baked cookies for the guests.
At around 7:00 AM, the guests would be filling the lobby and eating breakfast, as well as checking-out. My relief would come at 8:00 AM, at which time they would count my drawer and listen to my account of the previous night's notable occasions.
