Night Auditor Reviews

What is it like working as a Night Auditor at Courtyard by Marriott?
Night Auditor in Keene:
"Night Auditor At Courtyard Marriott."
Pros: The great thing about the hotel industry is that if you decide to move, you'll most likely find a job. Hotels are everywhere. I get bonuses every time the hotel sells out but only on days I'm working. I have a great medical and dental plan and I get a 401k after the first year.
Cons: Working nights is very boring and I have to deal with unruly guests. I get no job satisfaction what so ever.
