Classroom Observer (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAJune 9, 2015
Pros: mileaage reimbursement, flexible schedule
Cons: disorganization, driving throughout la county
A typical day includes conducting field assessments in different preschool and family day care centers. The company provided thorough training. The most enjoyable part of the job is the exposure to different school philosophies. Management is a bit disorganized. The job requires flexibility and working well independently

Field Interviewer (Former Employee), Princeton, NJOctober 16, 2014
Pros: good work experince and easy money for good descent pay.
Cons: short projects
I worked at the beginning of two different school years with Mathematcia policy research. The job was easy and I enjoyed meeting different people it also looks very good on your resume if your just starting out working. The only issue I have is that the job is very short-term, they pay well but the project was very short.

Enjoyed travelling and meeting new people.
Survey Administrator/Interviewer (Former Employee), Princeton, NJJuly 30, 2014
Pros: travel
Cons: temporary work, no benefits and co-workers
I liked the fact that I was on the road and worked alone or when I partnered with one of my family members. However, there were no benefits and job security. I also didn't like how people (sometimes I was partnered with people other than family) sabotaged me by saying things behind my back and instead of management coming to me, they instead don't return my emails for upcoming projects that were promised to me. I think the problem was that I had my own system then someone else want to totally change it and it becomes out of order. When I stand my ground, that's when I feel the atmosphere change. There were a few people that I know said some things that weren't true because I wouldn't let them run over me. I know for a fact one of the guys talked to a teacher and said some untruths about how I conducted myself during testing because she told me.
After that, I just didn't enjoy my job like I used to.

People are good to work for and reward for good work done.
Project Assistant for Federal (Current Employee), Princeton, NJJuly 28, 2014
Pros: healthcare, flexible hours.
Cons: not enough salary.
Talk to people on the phone doing surveys for the federal government. Learned to how to talk to people. The management rewards people for a good job done. My coworkers work as a team.The hardest part to talking to some people who are unhappy with their life and don't trust people over the phone.

The most enjoyable part is working with people.

Productive and wonderful environment
Human Resources Call Representative (Former Employee), Princeton, NJDecember 20, 2013
Pros: make your own schedule, activities, helping people, and periodic increase in pay.
A typical day at work consisted of working on the phone surveying different people. However, I have learned to deal with all kinds of people and how respond to them when they are not very happy. Management for this job were EXCELLENT! They helped you with everything you needed and went above and beyond to get you the answer you needed when you were on a live call. My co-workers were GREAT as well. Everyone was so diverse and it was a great place to work. It felt like a family working for this company and it definitely is experience I would not want to forget about. The job really was not hard, but one of the most enjoyable parts was the activities they had for everyone.

Pros: working with friendly people
Cons: not finding people to interview
Seems to be a fine group of people. I enjoyed finding people for interviews. L:earned some search techniques which may be useful elsewhere. Training was excellent, not a lot of pressure to produce.
We found who we could and were excited when we got interviews.

could have been great
Call Center Interviewer (Former Employee), Princeton, NJAugust 27, 2012
Pros: salary
Cons: job security
This job could have been great, however, it just seemed like they didn't care about you at all. Moreover, the only time anyone would ever talk to you was if you made a mistake. My demise with the company happened when my house became ridden with lice from a visiting cousin. I informed my superiors that I thought it would be unethical for me to work with the possibility that I may still have lice. However, when I told them I was ready to come back, I was suddenly "laid off". How's that for respect?
