    Pros

    Varsity creates a great work environment even though you are not in an office. There is a very positive culture and everyone makes you feel welcomed and appreciated. When I came in they did not have many benefits to speak of but they just currently added healthcare and vision (vision is no cost to you!). The compensation is more than fair...it is a 50 hour work week but you do not have to commute anywhere so that makes up for it. You also have the ability to earn commission on top of your salary which is a nice perk. They are very flexible with the schedule so if you need a day here or there you can switch the day you work which is great because I have a child at home so the flexibility for the unexpected is great. They also have a great tech allowance so you can have a great computer and all the necessary accessories.

    Cons

    The only real challenge I can think of is the work week is long, but it goes by quick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope that they continue to grow and evolve like they are. They are constantly figuring out how to improve and it is great to be a part of a company that takes feedback well and tries to implement your ideas.

    Interview Details

    The first phone interview was short, I was asked basic questions regarding subject interests, why I want to tutor, my experience with each subject and how much experience I have had tutoring. I was scheduled for an online video interview which entailed answering content area questions. The interviewer was very friendly and understanding if a question was beyond my scope of knowledge and would move on to the next question; some questions were difficult some were very easy.
