    Pros

    -Good job for college students, recent grads, and stay at home moms.
    -Lax and very understanding about scheduling conflicts, illness, accidentally missed days, and running late to a certain extent.
    -Pay is reasonable and fair.

    Cons

    -Sometimes you get no feedback, even when you have a good day. Some Leaders are really good about the feedback, some never give feedback.
    -Sometimes shifts are cancelled.
    -You can't switch shifts with other raters. it would be nice to have an anonymous switch shift feature so you don't just have to cancel and lose hours.
    -Sometimes when you call to cancel a shift or explain an absence, you

    Advice to Management

    Try not to cancel shifts. We should be able to cancel same day or maybe switch shifts.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Educational Testing Service (Princeton, NJ).

    Interview

    The interview process is basically a test online. You receive the opportunity to train and get paid for the training as well as the test. The training is online. You access a set of materials to read in order to understand the format of the tests, the rubrics, and how to navigate the online tools. All the training and interviewing is done online. You don't have a standard interview where a person asks you typical interview questions, which is great, because you can be a great interviewer but a lousy employee. The interview is basically a test to evaluate the skills you will be using if you are employed. You are given two opportunities to take the test. You are allowed as much time as you need to practice.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are your ability to properly score online tests using a set of rubrics. You need to score the tests within a specific range of accuracy in order to pass the test. The questions are basically a trail run of scoring oral responses to prompts. It may appear to be an easy task but it is not easy. You need to score based on a rubric and each strand of the rubric is unique. In order to score fairly you need to be very aware of the rubric strands and listen to the prompts having all the strands in front of you so you can determine the final score. These tests are very important for the test takers so it is very important that you score accurately.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. They have a set salary.
