Work & Life Balance


Test Administrator in Bethesda, MD
on August 7, 2012
Good part-time job during college
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.
Transcriber in Remote
on May 14, 2021
I'm a part-time transcriber and have been with Pearson for a while. I get paid $18/hour but the work is spotty and lasts for 4-6 weeks with months of no work in between. The rate for a transcriber is definitely higher than other companies but having no work for months on end is pretty rough. My management team is great though and I have no complaints there. I get to work from home and set my own hours which is nice. This position is a complete dead-end though and there's no opportunity to move up. I'd have to apply for an entirely different job with them if I wanted to change positions or move up.

Really enjoyed it here. Great schedule, great people, and there was always team building exercises that were implemented throughout the week. Couldn't complain about the work.
Test Center Administrator in Memphis, TN
on May 11, 2021
You're basically expected to sit in one spot and stare ahead for up to 14 hours at a time. No lunch break. It's like pulling teeth to get a restroom break. And God.forbid you break out a book to try to keep yourself awake; you're fired to the next day.Other than that the job is pretty chill. You get to interact with a lot of different people who are all.chasing a dream. It's nice to be a part of that. Hours are flex.

The work can be a little repetitive. Pay increases each year are miniscule. The company doesn't value long time loyalty. If lay offs are called for, you'll be first on the chopping block.
