I realize that no job is really that easy to get at this point. But I'm looking for an overnight gig since I'll be working for free during the day. I'm up for ANYTHING.

Edit: I'm in NYC so that's obviously why I posted it here and not in the jobs forum.

I looked into it but it looks like you have to work several hours a week which means I wouldn't have time for another job.

Ideally 40 or so at the overnight job, I hear cab drivers have to work around 80-120 hours a week which is no good for me because I need more time to work the non-paid time

Are you gaining anything working this "non-paid" job? There are loads of overnight jobs at stores, gas stations, security, etc..

Cab drivers lease the cab from the company and work volume, think of it like piece work at a factory.

Yeah but I've heard they have to work way too many hours if they want to make any money.
