Good part time employment
Reader (Former Employee), Sharonville, OHNovember 2, 2014
I worked a part-time 20 hour a week evening shift during the summer. It's nice temp work because you're individually contracted for each reading project which lasts about two weeks. It's great for a little extra spending cash. And if you have good stats they'll always invite you back.

Not a place to work for right now
Project Manager (Former Employee), Maple Grove, MNNovember 2, 2014
This company, due to a loss of a number of contracts and mismanagement from senior leadership, is highly unstable at the moment. Accept a job here at your own peril. There is little room for growth, extreme nepotism and little appreciation for dedication.

Reader - Scorer
Reader/Evaluator - Returning (Former Employee), Woodbury, MNOctober 12, 2014
Pros: free filtered water & ice, coffee and cocoa
Cons: small work space, crowded rooms that can be noisy with coughing, clearing of throats, and sick people that come to work, guard yourself against germs, and/or asked to be moved when sitting next to a hacker. if you become sick, and can't work, you lose the money and possibly get kicked off the project, something the sick person doesn't realize when they don't stay home with their fever, coughs
As a reader, know that your speed is important, the requirement of learning the scoring criteria for each State is vitally important as well. If you don't mind being micromanaged and mind working with retired folks and some introrvert personalities that are readers then go for it. You need to stay on time arriving for work, returning from breaks and – more... lunch, they are serious about every minute you are on their clock, DRC has deadlines and the sooner they achieve these deadlines the better it is for them, only problem is you hurry up and read yourself out of a job. Simply said, you end up shortening your employment term, because the project is ended. – less

Good place to work. Nice people. Quick assignments.
Temporary Assignment (Current Employee), Sharonville, OHSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: free parking. hours are good.
Cons: if you have a day or night job, some times it's hard to get from one to the other on time.
I have worked the night shift and the day shift. Both go quickly. The staff and co-workers are nice. This is a seasonal job, short term assignments that can last from 10 days to a few weeks. It is nice money but not meant as a career job.

Agreeable place to work.
Performer scorer (Former Employee), Austin, TXMay 26, 2014
Pros: pop corn on wednesdays. amicable place
Cons: physically demanding
It is a demanding job. Everyone has to read as many as 1,000 responses of the students per day and give an appropiate score to each one. It requieres to be focused and understand the criteria utilized for scoring each question.
The people that works there is very professional and dedicated to do the best and be fair to each student. The atmosphere is – more... relaxed and the opinions of the scorers is always considered and discussed openly in order to achieve the best agreement rate among them.
They have a high standards and professionalism and are proud of it. They make you part of a team that tries to do the best possible job. – less

Pros: wholesome environment, friendly staff, interesting work
Cons: mainly seasonal work....
DRC has been around for awhile. They have improved the grading environment over the years to make it very efficient to work as a reader.

Primarily, a reader is hired for the length of the grading project, which occurs during days or evenings. The length of the project depends on the client's needs. Overall, you are trained on how to score the material – more... and tested. Usually, if you make it past the interview testing you can pass the qualifying tests to grade the test material.

If you are looking for extra cash or need a break. DRC is a good place to have a wholesome change of pace, while you are busy with other things. – less

Fun workplace with pleasant co-workers
Reader/Test Scorer (Former Employee), Austin, TXJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: spending break time outside
Cons: temporary position, as job was only for one month.
A typical day was reading and grading exams. I learned how to work well with others, and the management was very friendly, as well as my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was deciding what grades to give papers that were borderline between two grades. The most enjoyable part of the job was reading.
