These are characters who have no real grudge against the heroes, but [[JustFollowingOrders are simply doing a job]] they're [[IControlMyMinionsThrough getting paid for]]. After hours, they're [[AffablyEvil totally personable Joes]] who go hang out like anyone else. Most Punch Clock Villains are not even particularly mean. Even if they are, their defining quality is that they see their job as a chore, are there only for the reward and they more than likely couldn't care less for the evil plan itself.

If they'd rather PetTheDog, they might be a MinionWithAnFInEvil; if they got into evil because the superhero team fired them for misbehavior, they may be a HeroWithAnFInGood. People using this trope as an excuse for their crimes are JustFollowingOrders; real-world examples should go there.
