Night Auditor Resume

Night auditors work for motels or hotels and do the bookkeeping, but they may also act as a front desk agent. With the exception of small motels, most sizes and types of these businesses employ night auditors. Motels usually employ auditors for part-time positions, but bigger hotels might employ one part-time auditor and one full-time. Depending on the size of the business, the duties may vary, but the main responsibility for a night auditor is handling the account duties at the end of the day.


Night auditors have to audit the daily guest ledgers of the organization to balance and verify entries. They have to also verify and balance the ledger entries of the restaurant, if the hotel has one. They verify the ledger of every account receivable, including room service, room charges and telephone calls. The night auditor has to correct and investigate any discrepancy, to create daily deposits and ensure a correct starting cash amount for the morning, at the front desk.

This position doesn't imply only accounting duties. These auditors will also act as front-desk clerks at the hotel or motel, during the quieter hours of the night. If they are working for a larger hotel, they will assist full-time desk agents. The responsibilities of a night auditor include taking reservations by phone, checking guests out or in, providing services like filling requests for extra linen, offering directions to nearby restaurants or stores, refunding money in case of attempts to use broken vending machines and also keeping an eye on security footage. Night auditors may also have to respond to complaints from guests regarding room conditions or noise.

Employers usually hire candidates with only a high school degree, but bigger businesses will prefer candidates with general accounting or bookkeeping knowledge.
