      I have been working at A Pass Educational Group full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      I love working for APass because I can work remotely and with a large client that I love to work with. The atmosphere is professional, goal oriented and focused. We have in fact acquired a year long contract with a large client and also expanded business opportunities with them. Love it!

      Cons

      It would be fantastic if we get paid earlier!

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the good work!

      I worked at A Pass Educational Group as a contractor (More than 5 years)

      Pros

      You can work from home.

      Cons

      I was hired to work creating assessment questions for K-12 standardized tests. The management told us (the contractors) that we were paid$18-20 per question and that each question should take maximum an hour. That seemed rather low as the job requirements included a PhD, but I thought I might be able to do the job faster when I had some practice at it. There I was quite wrong. I did indeed get better at the job as I did more questions, averaging about 30-45 minutes per question. However, the questions go through two levels of review and for each, every question needed revision. Often the revisions suggested by the first reviewer were flagged as needing revisions (or total rewrites) by the second reviewer. Morever, the instructions for revisions were often unclear, resulting in more needed revisions. Finally, at times the reviewer would tell you what question you had to do, but you had to make up "rationales" to justify the answers, even if you didn't think the questions were appropriate. All in all I took on 32 questions, and was eventually told that my revisions weren't up to par so I would not be paid for 20 of these questions. Working out how much I was paid for each question, I was quite unpleasantly surprised: about $10 per question, and I spent at least 1.5 hours on each question. So A Pass paid me about the federal minimum wage, about $7 an hour. I felt tricked and frustrated, to say the least. I would not recommend this job to anyone who has any alternative.

      Advice to Management

      Get your revision system into order and pay your contractors a decent wage.
