Perfect night after a busy day.
Most employers will demand workers be committed to normal working hours from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The schedule is tight, meaning the person has no time to enjoy the day. Some employers will go ahead and confirm if you are working, with a video camera down. Despite that tight day, the night is too long to sleep.
