    Pros

    Easy money! All you have to do is sign someone into the building during the late hours. It's a lot like being a hall monitor, and they let you bring whatever you want to your desk. (Ex: Your computer, books, games, homework, etc.) so long as you're attentive.

    Cons

    Not a job for someone who falls asleep easily. Must be a night owl and have a keen eye!

    Advice to Management

    Go Hawks!
