Regular shift; 9PM to 5AM, five days a week; I wasn't on calls the whole eight hours, but I was available the whole eight hours ('cept for breaks) and got paid for the whole eight hours.

The office was located just north of Baltimore.

Calls were randomly monitored, for training (we did training calls with a trainer afterwards, where the trainer would give us advice on how to improve our performance) and to make sure we weren't breaking rules. And right, you never knew you were monitored until after the fact.
