    I have been working at Princeton Review part-time

    Pros

    Princeton Review has given me the opportunities to fine tune my skills in subject areas. After teaching the same stuff over and I can do grammar, math, and reading in my sleep.

    Cons

    Pay so low, I feel like I'm working for free.
    The people at the office really do think you do nothing else with your time. They think you should be excited to teach for the 1 or 2 hr f private tutoring for sub-par wages. Really?
    After taxes are subtracted out, then gas to drive around to all these random places is subtracted out of your pay. Don't forget the waste of time you have to spend after working to enter your own payroll. (That you don't get paid to do)!

    Also, management expects tutors to send out flyers and market themselves in the local neighborhoods. Really?
    Why the hell does the company have a marketing department then?

    A tutor is expected to:
    1) drive around to students
    2) maintain relations with students and parents
    3) actually teach students
    4) market for the company

    Look at all the stuff the TUTOR is expected to do. However, the COMPANY keeps most of the money and does nothing but say, "tutor here is so and so go teach them." Hum, what exactly does the office do?

    I understand the company has costs but good employees need to be paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management doesn't realize how much time of the employees it wastes. Management sends countless emails every day and week to all employees. Employees are told to read everything, yet don't get paid to read any of the emails.
    The people in the office sit there and are paid to send and answer emails all day. Tutors and proctors are not!
    No financial incentive to work at the princeton review.
