Current Employee – been working at Data Recognition Corporation
Pros – The educational division of DRC scores standardized tests given to school children all across the U.S. It is a great job if you are looking for work, have a college degree and need some fill in money. Their work mainly starts in April and pretty much filters out by August. It is nice to know you are a part of the educational process. Many of these tests do ultimately determine graduation, how teaching is implemented, etc. in the various states. People are fantastic. Work environment is casual. Clothing is very casual. Company provides free drinks and the occasional treat. Supervisors are very friendly. Most, if not all, of them were scorers (readers). Team leaders supervise small groups of scorers (6-12). Pay is not high, but you get a bonus if you work 40 hours (35 hours is minimum).
Cons – Sitting at a computer all day, clicking a mouse takes some getting used to. It actually is very physically, as well as mentally, grueling at times. But there is flexibility when you need to stretch or move your legs. Since it is temporary it offers no benefits (except the bonus), and the seasonal nature leaves one without a job come fall. Many retired or semi-retired people work year after year.
Advice to Senior Management – Train mid-management to communicate better with the readers (scorers). Often new people do not know what or why they are scoring. Jargon is not always explained. Part of this is due to the fact that there are many returning readers who know the scene. It can be kind of confusing the first few days.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
