That example reminds me of 'which witch is which?'

"It's a job which pays well, and which offers great conditions."

Couldn't you take the second one out? And, I'd change it to 'that'. It sounds rather quite repetitive... 'It's a job that pays well and offers great conditions'

So yes...I have to go with Chris on this one (if it makes you feel any better, I didn't know the difference between restrictive and non-restrictive clauses either).

Yes, you're right. My example was a bad one. But I think you know what I mean. There are times when you need to use the construction, "which blah blah blah blah blah blah blah, and which blah blah blah blah blah". I can't think of any now, but I know they exist.

I think that the word which is a good way to break up a sentence. If your sentence is running a little too long, the incorporation of a comma and the word 'which' would give the reader a little breathing space and let the sentence flow a little better. When the sentence is short and direct, the word 'that' is best utilised.
