    Pros

    I was a temporary scorer. This is a great job if you are trying to get back into the workforce, eg, after staying at home with kids. Pearson knows that employees are their lifeblood and wants to help you be productive and successful.

    Cons

    The work is stressful. Not a lot of upfront training on the scoring job. Training is self-driven.

    Advice to Management

    Spend an hour for the major scoring jobs like STAAR writing explaining what you are looking for and it will help people as they are going through their self-paced training. More flexibility in regional scoring hours would be useful.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Pearson (Old Tappan, NJ).

    Interview

    Pretty much a standard interview, I went to the job location, was asked a series of standard questions, took maybe a hour, and then i was told they would be in touch. About a week later I was hired.
