Edexcel examiner (Current Employee), on lineJuly 18, 2014
Pros: free lunch on training
I have enjoyed working for Edexcel as an examiner the experience has been an eye opener as I have never worked with computer marking programs.

Document Specialist (Former Employee), Upper Saddle River, NJSeptember 7, 2014
Pros: coworkers
Cons: pay
Management are okay but sometimes not consistent on some of work ethics. basic work duties and simple things make it complicated and hard. They will tell you something that makes no sense relating to work duties. I cross trained on different departments such as receiving, mail and reprographics. My co-workers are very helpful and friendly.

I learned so much here...
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Old Tappan, NJSeptember 3, 2014
This was a great job for me, the commute was easy and the hours were great. I don't think I'll find that at another company. The benefits were the best I've had yet, complete with a $1 for $1 match 401k plan. The time off is also incomparable to most companies. I would still be here today if my department wasn't shut down.

Very quiet environment and you can not talk in the work place.
Temporary Scoring (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: you take the project that best fits your time.
Cons: very short breaks.
It has been a good experience so far, you do have to keep quiet once you are in the room for testing. You arent allowed head phones or any kind of hand held devices when in there or you will get kicked out of the project. Some projects are worth taking due to the pay others arent, but other than that, I have enjoyed my time working on projects and learning – more... the grading system. – less

Poductive and fun place to work
Scorer (Former Employee), Auburn, WAAugust 21, 2014
Pros: good work conditions, clean and safe work environment. helpful supervisors
Cons: assignments not long enoug, ., such as 8 or 9 days instead of 2 or 3 weeks for each one.
Log in, check with supervisor for current work load, grade level to be scored, etc. log into computer and begin assignment. Generally worked in 2 hour increments before breaks, lunch, end of day. Very little inter action with other employees except at break time or lunch. The most enjoyable part of the job was reading the children's responses to the – more... various questions and their thought processes in response to ideas that were, perhaps, new to them. The hardest part of the job was giving a low score to a student who seemed to struggle through the assignment and really tried but lacked the skills to complete it successfully. – less

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Lebanon, INAugust 18, 2014
Pros: learning environment
Cons: no job security
I worked in a call center environment. I had many duties in a high call and high stress environment. I help customers with any issues that had and help solve the problem. Pearson provides educational material to schools, school districts, individuals and parents K-12 and college level. I handled customer orders, found any product the customer needed, – more... tracked orders, help with any claims, or refunds. I gave price quotes, spoke with schools about their massive orders, and used multiple systems to help assist the customer.

I learn a great deal about how to be the best customer service agent. Also how to properly help any customer.

Management made sure we had the tools to handle anything that came up on the job.

It was a call center and you had your private space but we all worked together as a team to provide the best service.

The first call was the hardest after seeing it was really simple it got easier from there. And also leaving the job was hard. I really like my position, my co workers, and the company.

Learning new skills that will help me in another position. – less

Meeting the need of the customer
Production/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Smyrna, GAAugust 18, 2014
Pros: a job well done
Cons: no opportunity available for growth
A regular work day, spent processing licenses and resolving problems and answering questions from customer calls.Work had to be completed before the end of your shift including accounting balances on the check work for the day. The hardest part of the job was making sure everything balanced and verify funds so accounting was able to balance so the reports – more... that had to be turned in to management would be balance for the month end reports that was reported to HR head office account dept. My co-workers together would get the work and help each other get everything done by end of the day. The best part of the day is when we were able to resolve the problem and the customer was very happy with the results. – less
