Chess Coach (Current Employee) – DC, NOVA, MD – August 30, 2017
The compensation is great, and the work is rewarding. It allowed me to quit my two other jobs and focus on my school work. I don't see it as a future career but it is one that has given me quite a bit of freedom in both time management and finances.
A typical day involves teaching a short lesson and directing chess games. It is easily as long as you are good with children and atleast a weak tournament chess player.
The biggest weakness this job has is the drive times. I lose a lot of time driving to and from a 75 minute shift. Luckily, even with commute included the compensation is still good.
As for management, it is hit or miss. The good ones knock it out of the park, and the bad ones are grating. Its not like it really matters though because between promotions and quitting, no manager really sits in one place for too long.
