Nope, doesn't sound like a professional job. Sounds like the results I get when I mud my own walls. :)

If a professional painter did the job you should not be able to see any lines at all. Older homes the walls settle over time and the seams may be a little more noticeable.

NOOO That is not a pro who did that obviously. The mud lines should be coated atleast 3x to make sure they are hidden.. During these different mud lines a bigger mud knife should be used to widen the connection joint. Also between coats you should let them dry and then sand them down to smooth and then re-coat.
