    Pros

    Very good pay and you can choose whatever shifts you want. All of the fellow ambassadors I have met are very friendly, and it is an easy job. Good for casual work.

    Cons

    You do not get work that often. Open days are usually once every few months, and shifts that are in between these are very competitive, so it can be difficult to rely on this job if you want a steady income.
