What Are Night Crew Jobs?


Traditional night crew jobs, also called the graveyard shift, can run from 10 at night to 6 in the morning and are often held by young people who go to school during the day. Working this shift means making significant adjustments to your schedule, but it might be worth it since many night crew jobs pay extra in the form of a night shift differential.

They can also work in nightclubs, retail establishments that are open 24 hours a day and businesses that require overnight security.
