    Pros

    Supervisors are very understanding if you need a half day or a sick day for any reason, and are very willing to explain the grading rubric on a case-by-case basis. Training is also very thorough to maintain their standards. Was hired within 24 hours of submitting application.

    Cons

    Scoring becomes repetitive after a few hours, especially during the afternoon. Most scorers are retired or in between jobs, so if you are looking for a younger crowd to socialize with, it's going to be very small. Also, unless doing the same mindless and quite frankly, boring work for weeks at a time is no problem, recent college graduates should stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay more to somewhere along the national average. Or at least, make it clear which amount listed in the contract will be the actual pay, and not just the average scorer who more than likely is a return hire with a higher pay.
