    Former Employee - Professional Scorer in San Antonio, TX

    I worked at Pearson

    Pros

    As a temporary professional scorer you have the opportunity to sharpen your cognitive skills and learn a bit about high school life (as viewed by teenagers). It is a challenge to understand all the rubric to score but once you have read a couple of hundred papers, you get it pretty quickly. Great as a second job.

    Cons

    It is pretty monotonous. You read for about four hours straight. Your eyes need a break once in a while! You have liitle chance to get to know others working in the same project.

    Advice to Management

    Some more genuine personal interaction would help scorers come back season after season.

    I have been working at Pearson full-time

    Pros

    The culture at Pearson is the best I've worked in. The employees are collaborative, supportive, passionate about what they do, and I have yet to see someone's ego make an appearance. Pearson is dedicated to keeping their employees happy and progressing and it's working.

    Cons

    Change is constant and seems to be a difficult thing to implement smoothly and efficiently across all departments and locations.

    I have been working at Pearson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy to get a temp position scoring if you have a 4 year degree. The staff this year, Directors and Site Managers are all extremely friendly and professional. Great group of employees as well.

    Cons

    Low pay for a person with a 4 year degree. Scoring is painfully boring. The location is highly regulated. Not for someone who doesn’t like their breaks and lunches clocked to the min.

    Advice to Management

    Making scoring 100% home based job. Allow headphones to listen to Music at least. The environment is extremely boring. It is like watching paint dry.
