Test Administrator in Bethesda, MD
on August 7, 2012
A typical day of work would include checking test takers' identification, admitting them to take their tests, proctoring the test takers while they took their tests to maintain security , and then deliver the results of the test to the appropriate place. Some other responsibilities were general test center upkeep such as, keeping the test area sanitized and, if need be, doing some repairs on the test center computers.The hardest part of the job was being able to juggle my work schedule around school, which I was attending full-time. The most enjoyable part was learning about all the different professions that we administered test for.

The customers were easy to deal with. Coworkers were very kind and helpful. Toward the end of working for the company the department I was in had too many changes and not enough training to handle the sudden changes.
Test Administrator/Proctor in Gardena, CA
on May 13, 2022
We were constantly checking in candidates for their exams and monitoring them while they where testing. Cleaning the workstations and materials (boards, booklets and pens) after each candidate completed their exam. The weekly updates were overwhelming. There was no room for growth.
Customer Service Representative in Hadley, MA

It's a great place to work if you want to be treated unfairly and don't mind that bullying is tolerated by co-workers. Wages are barely above minimum and supervisors are rude and condescending - unless you are a favorite.
Program Manager in Texas
on May 11, 2022
Management is horrible and they don’t know as much as the PMs and trainers. They are constantly changing and nothing is organized. But they expect you to be. You can get answers but it depends on where the answer comes from if it’s correct. Very skilled, and knowledgeable people get overlooked for positions and they micromanage without training you.
