Pros

Great salary for students, opportunity to take free Test Prep course, great benefits, flexible schedule, presentation experience, student interaction, teaching experience

Cons

One of the downsides of working for Kaplan is that the number of hours you can work are severely limited; If you are teaching one SAT class, you will likely work just 5 hours per week (2.5 hours per class)

Advice to Management

Consider raising salary for SAT tutoring to more competitive rates. Teaching outside Kaplan, tutors might make at least $30-$50. Working for Kaplan, they make just $25

    Pros

    The ability to share ideas with others around the country is exceptional. I worked with very dynamic and energetic people.

    Cons

    The restructuring that was made affected everyone negatively. Bonus structure was flawed and communication between different levels became nearly impossible. The hours are grueling. There is little structure for human resource access beyond your own manager.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more oversight and interaction by and with human resources, as well as consistent coaching for senior management on employee support and development.


  2. Flexible hours and decent pay

    Pros

    The best part about the position was its flexibility, allowing me to take classes or work part time elsewhere. The manager was very supportive and understanding when it comes to helping instructors improve their teaching.

    Cons

    No real downsides to working at Kaplan except for lack of opportunity for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for instructors to obtain a hourly wage raise.
