What is the best way to calculate hours worked

Currently still using SQL Server 2005.
I have a table that has one row for each clock in or clock out like the attached file (hoursworked.xlsx) Notice the first employee worked two shifts per day.

I need to report the hours worked per employee, per position and by day. I think I want to use a sort of Pivot to bring the clock in and clock out onto the same row and then calculate the difference, but I'm not sure how to do that and ensure the correct clocks are tied together.

IF you have clean input -- i.e. one CLOCKIN and one CLOCKOUT per shift -- this is rather easy and you don't actually need to join the rows at all (which is great for performance).

Is that the case?

Try this:
;with q1 as (
	SELECT 
		 [YYYYMMDD]
		,convert(datetime, cast([YYYYMMDD] as varchar(8))+' '+stuff(right('00'+cast([HHMM] as varchar(4)),4),3,0,':'), 121) as times
		,[Clock]
		,[EmpId]
		,[Name]
		,[Hire Date]
		,[Termination Date]
		,[Salaried]
		,[Hourly Rate]
		,[Position]
	FROM 
		[dbo].[HoursWorked]

) --select * from q1
,q2 as (
	SELECT 
		ins.[YYYYMMDD],
		ins.[EmpId],
		ins.[Name],
		ins.times as times_in,
		outs.times as times_out,
		ins.[Hire Date],
		ins.[Termination Date],
		ins.[Salaried],
		ins.[Hourly Rate],
		ins.[Position]
	FROM 
		q1 as ins
		inner join q1 as outs
			on outs.[EmpId]=ins.[EmpId]
			and outs.[YYYYMMDD]=ins.YYYYMMDD
			and outs.times=(select top 1 times from q1 where [EmpId]=ins.[EmpId] and [YYYYMMDD]=ins.YYYYMMDD and times>ins.times and [Clock]='CLOCKOUT' order by times)
			and outs.Clock='CLOCKOUT'
	WHERE
		ins.Clock='CLOCKIN'
) --select * from q2
,q3 as (
	SELECT 
		[YYYYMMDD],
		[EmpId],
		[Name],
		cast(sum(datediff(mi,times_in,times_out))/60.00 as decimal(7,2)) as worked_hours,
		min([Hire Date]) as [Hire Date],
		min([Termination Date]) as [Termination Date],
		min([Salaried]) as [Salaried],
		min([Hourly Rate]) as [Hourly Rate],
		[Position]
	FROM 
		q2
	group by
		[YYYYMMDD],
		[EmpId],
		[Name],
		[Position]
) select * from q3

This is that table I used after I imported the data from the excel file:

	[Name] [nvarchar](255) NULL,
	[Hire Date] [int] NULL,
	[Termination Date] [nvarchar](255) NULL,
	[Salaried] [decimal](7, 2) NULL,
	[Hourly Rate] [decimal](7, 2) NULL,
	[Position] [int] NULL

Thank you both for your contribution.
I tried both and both worked with limitations. Due to some input  data errors, both returned inaccurate reports. However, Scott's query showed me there was a problem and Zbertoec's query, with small changes,  helped me find the erroneous data.
