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

    Pros

    Decent to work while attending college. People with bachelor gets paid a lot better. Very chill and relaxing to work at.

    Cons

    Need better management, there's too many people slacking off and there's no benefit

    I have been working at Extreme Learning full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Rapid and simple hiring process due to high employee turnover, opportunities to practice Spanish with ESL students.

    Cons

    Shady labor practices: company was successfully sued for violating state break laws, employees are laid off with zero notice, and overly competent employees are selectively driven out to minimize threats to middle management.

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

    Pros

    Extremely easy work for decent pay. As long as you know basic math and grammar skills, you can do this job.

    Cons

    You have to drive all over the county. The work isn't steady. It's a seasonal job.

    I worked at Extreme Learning part-time

    Pros

    The kids were great. The textbooks were well done.

    Cons

    Abysmal training. Not enough computers for each child to have his/her own. Same with textbooks. Not enough supplies for the kids (pencils especially). Overworked supervisors who just seem to accept the lack of resources and tell you to "work around them". I would never want to be a full time employee!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Spend some money to get the kids what you promised them: textbooks, pencils and computers that work. Provide real training; not sink or swim.

    Pros

    The only great thing about this company is it's social atmosphere.

    Cons

    It pays next to nothing, the workload is unreasonable, stress unbearable.

    Advice to Management

    Stop contradicting yourselves and please lead by example.

    I worked at Extreme Learning full-time

    Pros

    If you really wanted, you could move into other departments like, HR, Accounting, IT, etc.

    Cons

    The pay was low, but most employees were recent grades and these were their first jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees wants and needs.

    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.

    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.
