I worked at Princeton Review part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great pay, knowledgeable friendly staff. For substituting and proctoring positions, the company pays for mileage and other expenses.

Cons

Saturday morning work for proctoring practice tests. Not idea for people you are not good with high school kids. Always on call.

    I worked at Princeton Review part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - fun job
    - decent pay
    - easy to do part time
    - hours were flexible
    - students were great!

    Cons

    - only a minor con, but some prep was needed (but once you taught your first class there was much less to do for following classes)
    - not a reliable source of income as you were not guaranteed classes from year to year
    - company became disorganized when the Vancouver management was restructured and shifted to Toronto

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - For the majority of the time that I was working there there was a great manager who worked in our Vancouver office, but she was let go for company restructuring. She made working there a great experience. It became a little frustrating after that point as anyone that I could get assistance from was in Toronto. It was much easier to deal with day to day questions with someone face to face as opposed to talking to a person I have never met over email. It made the company seem uncaring and impersonal.

    -sometimes they'll get into a bind and need you to teach a class at the last minute
    -but...it's pretty hard to find things to complain about!
