I have been working at Oxford Tutoring Center part-time
I've worked at places where management was "slimy." This company is the opposite of shady and really is focused on the clientele (students who need help). You feel good about the services you provide. Management is very accommodating if you need a schedule change and will gladly listen to you if you have concerns or feedback.
You will have to be prepared for inconsistent pay. You get paid for each hour session you complete but it's not uncommon for students to cancel--sometimes last minute.
I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Oxford Tutoring Center.
First interview was a casual sit down about what I was looking for in a job, that process was only a few minutes as it seemed both of us ticked all the boxes. Just really easy things about my experience I already had and the hours I'd like to work.
After those 7? Minutes were up he asked if I could take the assessment quiz on grammar and reading that I could complete either this day or another day soon. I chose to just get it over with and finish up. The test took just over 34 minutes for me. I thanked the manager and was told i'd be in contact very soon.
The next day, I had received an acceptance email stating I'd come to orientation/training in the end of the week on Friday. I came in on that day early. Oddly to me, there were 5 people who showed up really late (tsk tsk). I think I saw that they still got the job, but I don't recommend coming to any training late and missing the lectures, it puts a bad impression on the hiring team. Luckily, the managers were nice about this. During the training, I was told we needed to take blood tests for certain transmittable diseases and had a week to turn that in before we could get paid.
We got to sign in and get paid for 2 hours of time, but were there essentially 1.5 hrs (with some people only an hour). After this, the waiting time was 1 week until we got to start going to people's houses or libraries to tutor them.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
