Nice company to work with
The company is ok. Salary is normal and there are not much special benefit. There's performance bonus and AIP. Hard to get promoted tho. Yoy need to apply first to get to higher level.

Won't get the hours they promise you.
Great work environment(in-office at least), I met some of the nicest people I know. Regional management is a different story. Will promise you 20+ hours a week even when they know your office will be lucky to get you 3 per week. It's a nice tiny bit of side cash if you really need it but in all other scenarios take anything else. The hours may be few but when they're there they are demanding.

Test Administrator in Vancouver, BC

Decent part-time job
Strictly part-time hours, some days were fast-paced while other days were much slower. Repetitive tasks but lots of interaction with test-takers and other employees. Had obscure working hours during the beginning of covid due to a backlog of cancelled/postponed exams (i.e., 6am - 12pm, 6pm-12am). Not much advancement/benefits available unless a management position is made available.

Manager is amazing!
The manager is absolutely amazing! She is so kind and treats you like a person. The pay wasn’t great. But it’s a great workplace and that makes up for it!

Why I was leaving my current job. Did I realize that publishing is one of the lower paid industries? (odd question). Turns out this Manager had a habit of saying inapropriate and unprofessional questions.
