Night Shift Job Description

Introduction

The general advice about the nightshift is to immediately upon arriving survey all the work that needs to be done.  Sometimes it’s not until late in the shift that you know what condition things really are in and then it’s too late to change course.  For example, if you don’t notice that there some critical washing or ironing to be done, you may elect to bake both cookies and granola when the granola could be deferred a day.  In coming up with your plan for the shift, it is also important to budget in time for interruptions like above average numbers of phone inquiries and requests for tea.  This puts you in the position of either working late into the night or putting the breakfast shift in a less than ideal position.

Qualifications

It’s helpful to have experience in the tasks performed during this shift but this is not necessary.  The shift is relatively intense so a relatively high level of energy is required.  This is particularly so because any shortfalls fall on the breakfast shift, and this gets communicated back to the nightshift person.  Persons doing this shift report to the General Manager.

Hours and Pay

Starting pay is $8 an hour.  Hours vary seasonally:  in the summer it’s scheduled for 3pm to 10pm.  In the winter, it’s scheduled for 3pm to 9pm.  The reality is that frequently employees work later than this because they can’t finish.  The inn commits to its guests to receive phone calls on their behalf until 9pm, so employees should not leave until 9.
