Because you have to put up with so much for so many hours of the day—and because you're working for someone who is worth as much as a small city—the money is usually really good. The average pay for this overworked position is $80,000, which can help alleviate some of the stress of having to go to five grocery stores to find the right kind of kale (source). 

Hook up with the right celeb whose career is skyrocketing and you could be making over $100,000 a year without batting an eye. There are some people who would pay that much just to be within five feet of Jennifer Aniston, and not only do you get paid for it, you get to have inside jokes with her—when she's in a good mood, that is.

Aside from the money, one of the most attractive elements of this job is the perks. Movie premieres, first-class travel, stays in amazing five-star hotels, dinner at the finest restaurants, the opportunity to use your celebri-boss's house as your own when they're out of town ("sure this is my place"), the chance to mingle with some of your favorite stars—there are actually a ridiculous amount of perks assisting the lifestyle.
