Online Tutor (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – October 26, 2017
Tutoring online for chegg is basically a good side hustle. No, you probably won't make enough to pay your car note or mortgage but you can probably get a light bill or gas paid if tutoring during the school year. It is a good position for college students who need extra cash.
Independent Contractor (Current Employee) – Remote – October 16, 2017
If you have a degree, it's pretty easy to be approved to tutor on this platform and the hourly rate is decent. The problem is that there are so many tutors that it is extremely competitive to actually get a student and since students are able to contact you initially without paying, they consistently waste 5-10 minutes of your time trying to get help for free only to ultimately sign off when it's time to start a paid lesson. There are also a lot of students looking to cheat and just want someone to do the work for them (which is obviously against the company code of ethics). I think it's worthwhile to sign up, but this is supplemental income at best. Don't expect this to be any type of primary job.
Quick hiring process, remote
No opportunity for advancement, not many hours available
Intern (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – July 29, 2017
- The CEO and Upper Management are very approachable - Company has some amazing talent, they are doing great work but could use some more challenges - I was an Intern so my opinion might be a bit skewed
-Benefits, people, location, CEO is awesome
- Challenging work may not be available at the outset
Online Tutor (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 23, 2017
It was easy and fun working at chegg inc. Because of the opportunity that it gives to be able to communicate with a wide pool of students have enhanced my communication skills. I have actually liked the whole concept of online tutoring.
Own schedule, good pay.
Students give unhelpful rating at their own will at times.
Great Job, great pay, and fun to do. Depending on the subject that you sign up for, there are plenty of students looking for assistance and its a great way to both give them the aid they need and stay up to date with the material.
Flexible scheduling and accessible from home
Some times there isn't enough work and reviews can really damage reputations
Chegg performs excellent, comprehensive tutoring and providing textbooks
ONLINE TUTOR (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – June 16, 2017
Chegg Tutors provides many tutors for a wide variety of subjects. Students have a strong, varied selection of tutors they can choose from. Also, Chegg often saves money through offering students textbooks in many subject areas.
Gives tutors much autonomy while also making sure they live by Chegg Code of Ethics
Being an online tutor is a great. You have the opportunity to help others learn the material you are an expert in, earn decent money, etc. The process of getting students is a little flawed, but overall I would recommend this to others looking to keep themselves fresh.

It's great overall. You get to tutor whenever and wherever you want to. The pay is good ($20/hr), and I think that's a lot considering you can tutor right at the comfort of your own bed if you want to.

Chegg is a fun place to work for; the pay is outstanding and we can work any hours we want to, which makes for great work/life balance. In addition, there are opportunities to make even more money for special tutoring assignments.

Pros 1) Scope of company means you can do many things - lots of opportunity to learn new skills, if you're willing to relocate and learn. 2) Interesting work and a variety of people and cultures 3) Good benefits 4) Cutting-edge technology Cons 1) Direction at the top of the company is poor. Not much confidence in the top execs. 2) Too much focus on cost-side of the equation, a result of poor revenues for many quarters. 3) Shoemakers children with technology for employees - i.e., 4-year cycle for laptop replacement, not a lot of interval. Advice to Management 1) Apply reasonable rules for co-location - if you support a global team, does it matter where you work? 2) Minimize the cost-cutting, especially of good people. At some point it has to stop. It's a terrible morale hit.
Business Analyst, Career Services (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – January 30, 2017
If you want to work at the place with the best people Chegg is the place for you. The culture is top of the Valley and keeps the people closer, even cross functionally. Even through the ups and downs with the company everyone gets along and hiring quality people who will get along is the highest priority. There may be sexier places to work or more cutting edge technology but no place solves more important problems, student needs, and does it with more passion than Chegg.
