I love working for this company; however, there is no room for advancement, no matter how many years you work for them. They do give bonuses throughout the year, but not all the tutors always receive the bonuses. If they would offer some sort of pay advancement, even based on number of students or hours worked, this company would be great. In addition, there is no job security, so it is hard to depend on the income.
You choose when you want to tutor, who you want to tutor, and over what subjects. Although sometimes hard to find students, there is many opportunities over time to accrue a range of repeat students and to make money.
Flexible, Make your own Hours
Not secure, No defined Hours
$20/hour is not bad, and building a customer base of students that trust you is personally fulfilling. Exam season provides competitive pay with rates raising to $60-$80/hour on some days, which is awesome. However, the “off-season” is particularly slow and you are not guaranteed tutoring opportunities even with high ratinfs
Would you rate your company five stars?
Rate your employer to help people make better career decisions.
Great work from home job very generous pay very flexible hours get paid once a week through Paypal. Very easy to get paid hundreds per week. I also really enjoyed helping the students.
Flexible and challenging. Chegg is an excellent choice for those needing a job that pays good and works atound your schedule.
I really enjoy working for chegg because it offers everything someone working from home looks for in a job. It boosts your self esteem and allows you to have a purpose.
Flexible hours. Good pay. Challenging work. And boosts self esteem.
Sometimes too challenging. Not enough hours available.
You do all your own tutoring for $20/hr. You can tutor whenever is convenient for you. If you have any issues with the website or reviews, you can contact Chegg and they will respond fairly quickly. Extremely helpful. Tutor a wide range of subjects. I wish the hourly rate was a little bit better but honestly not that big of a deal $20/hr is a fair rate. There is no compensation/benefits as you are basically a consulting business. There is no really advancement in the job. And as far as job security, it depends mostly on the amount of students using the service which also varies throughout the year. Good way to make side money though and strengthen your knowledge in old subjects.
Decent salary, extremely flexibile, responsive team, good customer base, and overall great job.
Not enough people on the platform, customers vary through the year, no job advancement.
Applying to be a tutor at Chegg was one of the best decisions I made while studying at college. The pay was more than sufficient for helping afford food and rent every month, and the fact that I could log in at any time meant there were zero conflicts with school work or any other obligations. Furthermore, it was fantastic teaching old stuff I had learned as a way to keep it fresh, while simultaneously honing my teaching and communication skills. Finally, it was very rewarding teaching other students and keeping up with them later on to hear how they were progressing.
Extremely flexible schedule, good compensation, rewarding work

Low Stress and In theory, a good way to get involved in tutoring kids from all over, but the site is way too flooded with instructors.
This online service is a great addition for students not only to rent books, but receive instruction for their subjects. However, there are few oppurtunities for the instructors to get lessons because of either the lack of students or the vast amount of tutors online flooding the site.

Just started and I’ve got the students calling me sir. I’m only 24 haha. Anyway it’s great, you get to help appreciative students, get paid a lot, and work from home. How can you beat that!?
Need more hours to tutor. Or more money per hour.
Fun to work with students and by design it's great if you need a flexible schedule, best mixed with a second job or a difficult university schedule. However hours can be very unpredictable, only Sundays are "busy", other days can have entirely random schedules.
Remote work, flexible.
Pay can be unpredictable, benefits are also unpredictable.
Tutoring online for chegg is basically a good side hustle. No, you probably won't make enough to pay your car note or mortgage but you can probably get a light bill or gas paid if tutoring during the school year. It is a good position for college students who need extra cash.
Very flexible schedule and the pay was very good. There was a site update that made it harder to get tutoring jobs but overall the site is easy to use and a great way to make money and gain teaching experience.
good pay, flexible hours
difficult to get lessons sometimes
