Nursing! loooooooooooooots of night shifts
Shit pay and horrible conditions (from what I've heard).
I picked up the easiest night shift work between a break in my 2nd year at med-school. Remember when Swine Flu broke out? Shit, me too. So much that the Austarlian government agreed to have a 24/7 telephone helpline that you could call to see if your symptoms matched.
I worked from 10pm to 9am (with an hours break), 5 nights a week for 6 weeks. Was paid $55AU ($60US) an hour as it was an emergency rate, night shift and overtime. $3000 a fucking week, essentially I held up a $150k job (for 6 weeks).
Oh, and there was only 3 of us. The reason being that after the first few days of people calling, nobody cared. The government had to keep funding the project and I sat around getting paid to read (and reread) Lord of the Rings.
