Cheap pay, not that bad of a short term job for people straight out of college looking desperately for work.

Intern (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsEasy to get the job. Everyone who got approved for the training thing got hired. Pretty flexible with work hours - I was able to come in early now and then, and it didn't seem to be a problem that it meant I could get off early. It was even mentioned before we were hired that it was possible to do such a thing. Mgmt doesn't criticize you much because they aren't paying you much anyway! The people were fairly nice, and the bosses are nice too.

ConsLousy pay. Corporate environment. Felt like unimportant cattle all lined up in a row of computers. It gets boring after a while. Nobody seems to be excited about being there.

Advice to Senior ManagementNever met senior mgmt.

    One of best part-time jobs a college student could ask for.

    Irvine, CA

    I have been working at Princeton Review


    Pros: Awesome place to be working for as a college student as mentioned. SoCal TPR is different than most other TPR places, with a fairly laid-back… Cons: Management definitely plays favorites, a you scratch my back I'll scratch yours sort of thing. Have to plan out hours way in advance to make… Advice to Senior Management: Stop playing favorites, it doesn't go unnoticed and turns away people from… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

    Good job for a college freshman, bad job for everyone else.

    Course Instructor (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    I worked at Princeton Review


    Pros: When you're a college student, your employment options are very limited. Unless you're a technical genius or an upperclassman who landed a competitive internship,… Cons: Except for maybe 3 or 4 managers, everyone at every Princeton Review franchise works under part-time status, no matter how many hours you work. … Advice to Senior Management: Most Princeton Review offices are individually owned franchises. There's a movement by the parent company to buy them all up,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
