I worked at Princeton Review part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Salary, flexibility. Great pay if you're in college and need some extra money for only a couple of hours of work.

Cons

Poor communication with management and office. Lack of trust in teachers. Office was rude (even the students would complain). Many teachers I trained with have left as they were fed up of the office's attitude and negativity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve communication and invest in teachers instead of looking for every excuse to weed them out.

    A great summer job; too uncertain for long-term work

    I have been working at Princeton Review as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    For a pre-med with time between college and medical school, this is an excellent part-time. Teaching hours are generously paid, and everything from training/prep to transportation and supplies is compensated. Helping students in a similar position to you is rewarding. Administrative people at the local office are friendly, laid-back, and helpful. You pick your hours and days.

    Cons

    You're hired as a contractor, so there's no guarantee you'll work as many hours as you want, or even at all. Training is intensive, and passing it is not certain. Trainings for different MCAT subjects are not always available in the near future. Expect to spend plenty of time going over material before class.

    I have been working at Princeton Review part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Depends on what you want out of the work experience. If you need a pretty good salary and a bit of experience, this is a good job. I have recommended many friends because of these "pros" but it isn't a long-term commitment type of job.

    Cons

    If you are looking for applicable skills and growth opportunities, this would be considered more of a stepping stone.
