    I worked at Sotheby's part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work was simple, but taught me about customer service, databases, and real estate. Good time off for lunch. Little supervision so can independently develop my skills.

    Cons

    Not enough hours because I was only working ten a week. There was not a lot of work to do and the main receptionist was very anal about cleanliness.
