    I worked at Chegg for more than a year

    Pros

    High paying hourly rate for individual tutoring sessions

    Cons

    Incredibly hard to secure a session when dozens of tutors are waiting for a question to be posted and jump on it simultaneously

    I have been working at Chegg for more than a year

    Pros

    Set your own hours, plenty of opportunity during finals week and midterms. Good pay and bonus schemes during high demand periods. Most students are respectful of your time and there are some systems in place to protect tutors when students screw you over. Great help ticket system for finding new students makes it easy to sort through requests and find ones that are worth following up. They do a good job of funneling students to me after getting to a good number of positive reviews (you'll show up higher in search rankings and such if you're active and performing well).

    Cons

    About a third of the year is just a desert (summer and the first part of the quarter/semester before homeworks really kick off). A fair bit of kids spamming free accounts to try to get free homework solutions with the free trial. No contact with... well.. anyone really. Getting started is rough until you get some positive reviews under your belt, so be ready to sit scrounging for lessons for a couple weeks before students start messaging you.

    I have been working at Chegg part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    No taxes. Work when you feel like it. Make $20/hr. Very chill middle management, but make sure you don’t charge for the lesson unless it was quality- if not receive a bad rating: which eventually will cause one to get canned.

    Cons

    Students who don’t want a lesson may keep trying to bilk answers whilst appealing to your intellectual vanity( i.e. :”what.. you don’t know how to do this” meanwhile they are avoiding paying for a lesson etc..).

    I have been working at Chegg part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is online so you can work as much or as little as you want

    Cons

    Some of the students expect you to just give them the answers

    Pros

    Decent pay sometimes if you can work through questions quickly.

    Cons

    They take 50p or more of your purse which is absurd.
