Such establishments that need people to man during the night are hotels, hospitals, call centres and so on. In hotels, they need people to answer to the queries of people who want to stay at the hotel for the night or aid the assistance of the occupants of the hotel.

Call centre agents in the Philippines and India mostly operate during the night because their customers are those living in the Western countries. They need to adjust to the time frame of their customers since that is their job.

Night Jobs are one way to earn money fast. For a person who is working during the night, they usually can earn much more than those who are working during the day.
