        Business Outlook


        - flexible schedule, set what hours you want to work - meet cool people from all around the world - can take off how long you want (but in doing so, if you have a lot of regulars that like booking with you, then they may not come back if you take off too long) - weekend bonuses - actually this is a pro cuz yayyyy bonus, but its a con because the max the lowest bonus is 10% and the highest 30%, but it seems lately they only do the 10%, but typically you have to work THREE hours back to back to get this bonus


        - Classic Cambly - the pay is abysmal at .17 cents a minute/$10.20 hour - Cambly Kids - a little better but still abysmal at .20 cents a minute/$12/hour ***from my understanding, Cambly hasn't given any raises in MANY years, but their CEO'S are rakin in the dough. - if you cancel too many lessons last minute you get put in "cambly jail" meaning your schedule is restricted to take calls from your regular students. (in actuality its not the worst, because if you've already built up a nice roster of regulars, you can still have enough lessons, as long as they're continuing to book with you) but being restricted doesn't allow you access to the PH(priority hours) - these PH's basically mean you're on-call, you MUST take all incoming calls while on one of these hours. - FREE TRIALS and Ma$turbator$ - yes you read that right, there are times when men call during a free trial and are doing nasty things. So while Cambly has made strides for tutors to have the ability to blur the students video, it still doesn't stop these sickos from creating new fake accounts and calling to do it over again. I've experienced it twice in one month and all Cambly tutor support is say "sorry, we're doing what we can, blah blah blah" very lack luster and generic automated response. They could care less. -Independent contractor, but NO not really, we get in trouble if too many lessons canceled last minute, can't set own rates, and their most recent contract update has stated that if tutors don't agree to their updated terms, then they can't work for Cambly. In these new terms, they say they can use your voice or picture along with AI in the future. That's all sorts of wrong. Even though you have to do your own taxes, again, not an independent contractor. - no health benefits or anything like that, that's where the "independent contractor" suits them.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Marketing Manager

      What are people’s thoughts on those personality and logic tests some companies made you do as part of the hiring process? I frankly don’t like them. I understand if the test is for people who more technical but for roles leaning more creative or ideas based - I don’t understand how patterns I’m forced to review in a short time tells them I’m worth it to get the Hiring manager round. One asked me 50 ques in 15 min. And they never tell how you did on the tests


      Brand Marketing Strategist

      Anyone have any stories of times where you declined an offer at one company (just because it wasn’t the exact right fit or you got another better offer at that time) and u successfully re-connect? Is that a burned bridge forever? Would they consider you for another job again?


      Personal Banker

      I'm a fresh graduate this year, and finished internships at 3 banks, how can I prepare for interviews of banks? and what about skills that should I improve to work as a banker?
