20. Custodians and cleaners
A custodian is responsible for the entire school. The custodian has cleaners work under him. It is a managerial position - the top managerial position in a school for the position. The custodian might have a dozen or more people under him.

Virtually no cleaners work eight hours a day. How many custodians are cleaning between 9AM and 3PM? It makes no sense. A large number of cleaners usually come in at 3 PM and clock a few hours Monday through Friday.
