I worked at Princeton Review part-time for more than a yearPros
My favorite part about this job was my time in the classroom. I absolutely loved teaching and joking around with my students. By and large, we had a great time in class, and it was great practice public speaking, presenting, and teaching.
The Princeton Review has perfected the art of gaming the SAT, and their methods work very well. My classes' scores always increased substantially.Cons
At the outset my trainer showed us a pyramid with opportunities for advancement. I thought this would be a great part-time gig with a good hourly rate. However, after speaking with some very excellent coworkers who had been working at the Princeton Review for over two years without making a nickel more than the starting rate, I decided it wasn't worth it.
I did not realize how difficult it would be to get a class at a time that worked for me and a location at a reasonable driving distance. $15/hour plus their driving compensation does not make up for driving 45 minutes to teach a three-hour class. And for proctoring a test, forget it.
Also, for anyone with a strong sense of social justice, working for The Princeton Review will slowly eat away at you. While the company claims that its mission is to help all students get into their best fit school, in reality, all it does is help rich kids take advantage of a flawed system because they can afford to pay The Princeton Review's hefty price tag.Advice to ManagementAdvice
