What is your daily tasks and experience like being a Front End Developer?

Hi Guys,

I was just wondering if anyone could shed some light on what their day to day life of a front end developer looks like. What are the working hours? How is the work life balance? What is the level of technicality you need to have to get hired? How long after finishing CodeAcademy courses did it take you to get a job? How difficult was the technical interviews? is there any down time or is it constant coding and meetings?
