    I worked at Extreme Learning part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Consistent part time hours, hourly pay is decent

    Cons

    Employees were lacking morale. I had an annoying lead that would constantly use the phrase "he, this is better than retail!" to motivate employees. I expect leaders to be passionate about the job they are doing--not surfing sports websites all day.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better leaders who actually value the work we do as educators.


  2. "Decent hourly pay, but staff and management were too paranoid of their workers."

    I worked at Extreme Learning part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are cool, young people working here and a decent job for a college student.

    Cons

    Be prepared to have management look over your shoulder, literally, watching you work.

    Advice to Management

    Have some trust in your coaches, or have a better interview process if you can't trust those you let in.
