7.5 hours per day of work. Job stability (finally after 2.5 years), good retirement and 12 holidays. Yes its a govt job. But we get to play with the latest and greatest yet maintain a laid back atmosphere. My resume mill is currently shutdown.

Pros: pay and benefits are decent, learn something new everyday, interact with customers, some of them are drop dead gorgeous.

Cons: can be touch to deal with sometimes, demanding customers.

Unlimited access to 16000 CDs, 15000 LPs, 200 DVDs (i.e. take them home and copy them), lots of free time to look up random web sites, lots of time to just look at music scores, lots of time to read about composers and performers, and awesome bosses. I like my job.

I work around the office for a pair of CPA's. I like it because it's simple easy work. Gets quite boring at times but at least when I've got nothing to do, I can surf around the web. My main income comes from another source so I work here solely for spending cash along with resume experience.
