Pros: meeting a variety of candidates, having a great support staff, convenient location
Cons: rest rooms located behind locked doors outside the office proper, lack of office hours to work
I enjoyed my position as Test Administration at Pearson for the past 5 years; however, you need to have a lot of flexibility with this type of job, the desire to work 12-hour days with no specific meal breaks (eat at your desk), expensive medical benefit premiums, and no advancement. This is the perfect position for retirees, students or homemakers desiring very part-time work.
I learned how to work in a very secure environment, how to problem solve and resolve IT issues, and how to successfully interact with people from varying backgrounds. I loved my manager and co-workers as well as the candidates who tested at this center. The hardest part of the position was not knowing my schedule more than a week in advance and trying to balance work with personal life as a result.The locations are very close to my home but when the office hours decreased I could no longer afford to work for this company. That was the only detraction for me!
