Legal Work Practices?

Tutor (Current Employee) Lawrence, NJ

ProsFriendly and helpful coworkers
In theory, it is nice that Huntington aims to teach not just to the test (SAT, ACT) but to teach the skills and material necessary to do well on the test

ConsSome shady practices - asking tutors to come in up to an hour early and stay late to finish paperwork, but you can only clock in 5 minutes before your shift and must clock out 5 minutes after your scheduled shifts ends; Also not paying for the hours completed in training until 3 months after you've been working at the center...
Really poor materials. Full of typos, unclear explanations (unclear even for college grads, much less high school students struggling with the test)
Low salary compared to similar positions (and you're not allowed to speak to parents at all, maybe for fear that the parents will realize that only a tiny portion of their thousands of dollars are going to tutors?)

Advice to Senior ManagementPay tutors a more competitive wage, including prep time. Improve teaching materials.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Offered a Job? Very Misleading

    Part Time Teacher (Current Employee) Melbourne, FL

    I have been working at Huntington Learning Centers part-time for less than a year


    Pros: Never got a chance to find out Cons: Grossly Low Pay (9/hr) Disorganized Management Advice to Senior Management: I interviewed and was seemingly offered a job as a 'teacher' aka tutor. Firstly, interview went great, so much so that I was given the card… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    A decent part time job

    ACT Prep Tutor (Current Employee) Lake in the Hills, IL

    I have been working at Huntington Learning Centers part-time for less than a year


    Pros: Relatively easy job. Kind coworkers and students. They are pretty flexible with scheduling… Cons: They often call a day or two ahead of time to ask you to work more or not to come in.… Advice to Senior Management: Act more like a person and be more organized when… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
