I plan on filing a petition for my parents. However, I am afraid that it might get denied because of my work history. I haven't had a long term job for the past two years because I move from one job to another multiple times. Will USCIS consider my work history as a factor of approval?

A US citizen sponsoring his parents for permanent residency is required to file an affidavit of support that meets the necessary income threshold based on his household size. If you do not meet that threshold, you can engage a joint sponsor who can.

Your boyfriend will need to apply for a non-immigrant B-1/B-2 visa at the U.S. consulate in Nigeria.
The National Visa Center keeps asking for the same civil documents (copy of marriage certificate or police record), I submitted all the docs and they were approved, with the I-130 which is also approved. What’s going on at the NVC?”

From the situation you describe, you potentially have a few issues. If she enters the US on a non-immigrant visa with the intent to marry you and file for a green card, she has lied to the agents at the border by claiming to be coming to the US without the intent to immigrate.
