I have to work any holiday that happens to fall on my scheduled day of the week. It's one of the joys of a job that never closes. Ever.

lol. my office was formerly a "storage closet" so its bigger than a broom closet...but not by much. theres no windows and theres no heating/cooling to it.

on the plus side, there are no other offices around mine so i get seclusion.

If I'd been searching for a while and this was the first thing that came up, then I'd probably take it, even with any of those options, while I continued looking elsewhere.

It really depends on whether or not I am receiving unemployment benefits. If I am not, then none of those are dealbreakers. I'd at least take the job, work it for 6 months and then if I didn't like it I'd either find a reason to sue them or get on unemployment.
