Pros: two breaks and a lunch, the people you are able to come across, the quiet work atmosphere.
Cons: poor management, unreasonable production standards (similar to a plant/factory production model), unacceptable and childish behavior from supervisors, unclear and nonconsistent training material.
When contacted by Pearsons, you're told you will earn a 13.00 per hour. This is false. According to the hiring information given upon being recruited by a computerized system, it is revealed that you make a certain amount per test graded. The amount of tests you are required to grade would be roughly 4-7 tests a minute, in order to successfully meet Pearsons' standards for their production model of 100-150 tests per hour or 5000-5625 tests per week. The training is a single day, and the scorer is expected to perform at top out-put after that single day. If the scorer cannot produce to the satisfaction of standards put forth by Pearsons, they will be repeatedly told they may be let go. This isn't exactly a productive method to keep the overall spirit of the work place at its highest. Overall, the information presented by their website does not meet what truly is expected of their temporary scorers.
