You’ll need to complete a 15-hour training and then you will be able to create your own schedule.
Hours will generally be available on weekdays between 2:30 p.m. and midnight Pacific Standard Time and on weekends between 7 a.m. and midnight Pacific Standard Time according to the job posting. Pay is $10 per hour.

You can expect to work anywhere from one to 40 hours per week, with hours being given on a first-come, first-served basis.
