I wish I could do it all year long!
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Woodbury, MN – October 22, 2015
I really enjoy working at DRC. A typical day for me goes like this:
I arrive a bit before 8:00 and get settled in before my team members begin to arrive, and record their attendance as they come. At about 8:30, my supervisor makes any announcements and updates all the teams about the status our project. We take 15 minute breaks at 10:15 and 2:15, and a half hour lunch break at noon or 12:30. Hours are somewhat flexible, so people can go home between 4:00 and 5:00. Throughout the day I monitor team member production, and answer any questions they might have about scoring test responses. I most enjoy helping people, guiding them, and answering their questions, and I get to move around going from person to person and help them make a scoring decision. The hardest part of my job is the inevitable boredom that creeps in at a certain point with each project. Any given project usually focuses on one question from a larger test, so many answers tend to look more or less the same, especially in math. There are exceptions to this trend, but any project usually only lasts for a few months at most. So even though a given question may get boring, it changes quickly enough that it never becomes intolerable. It's a very casual environment, and everyone is pretty friendly and sociable. I've definitely worked a lot harder for a lot less, and my only real complaint is that it's a seasonal job.
Casual work environment, Good location, Low stress occupation
Seasonal, No benefits for seasonal employees
