It's a nice place to work. I wish it were permanent.
Test Scorer (Current Employee) – Duluth, GA – May 28, 2018
DRC has a seasonal test scorer opportunity. In this role, an individual will review and grade student papers based on pre-established criteria. The work can get boring and monotonous, especially when the papers fall between scoring categories. Employees are also expected to keep their phones and other devices off while working, which can be troublesome at times. On the other hand, The management is supportive, and they will do what they can to make sure that you grade consistently and fairly so long as you reach out to them when you are stuck. The training pay is also the same as the production pay, which is also nice. Your contemporaries can be pretty neat too. I've met quite a few interesting and friendly people working here.
A little free food, and the management is helpful.

Great fit for something temporary
Test Scorer (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – April 18, 2019
Working at DRC was a great experience for me. I worked here for a month while waiting to hear back from other full-time jobs. Everyone is friendly and management is always willing to help. The work is relatively easy and it's a very laid-back environment. They are strict on attendance, but they are willing to work with you if something comes up.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 10, 2019
When work is available, the job has a somewhat fast-paced environment depending on the project given. You're expected to quickly learn new information and immediately apply it within the same working day with guided help from project and team leads. It can be difficult to get to know your co-workers with the nature of being a project-based job, as people may not or cannot return or you can be placed in a new group. The work environment does little to foster work relationships, but it isn't inherently a bad thing if that's not a priority. I learned how to work quickly and efficiently to teach and guide others on how to do their job, which was the hardest and most enjoyable part of the job. Some people were receptive to training while others were absolutely not with passively not improving or aggressively responding to feedback.
The one thing I might emphasize with this job is to bring hand sanitizer. With how many people are in and out in the primarily used large scoring area, it's tough to stay clean and healthy.
