Upon first thought, assisting a top R&B act with their needs sounds like an exciting job. It probably comes with tons of memorable perks such as free shows, free music and access to a behind-the-scenes, daily look at the life of an artist everyone wants to get close to.

But everything that glitters isn't gold. Singers and crooners tend to be perfectionists when it comes to releasing albums, planning shows and even choosing their wardrobe. So those who have the job of helping out the likes of Trey Songz, Beyonce, Raz-B or Chaka Khan really have to rely on patience. After all, there's attitudes and crazed fans to deal with.

With that said, The BoomBox highlights a few R&B jobs that sound great at first, but after revealing the actual duties, will have you moving along and keeping that 9-to-5. From band directors to dieticians, hat selectors to A&Rs, these gigs don't live up to the hype.
