    Student Mentor

    Student Mentor (Former Employee)

    ProsI enjoyed being able to reach out to other students and help them along if possible, it was really a fun student-work opportunity.

    ConsI believe there are a lot of people who choose online education as a means to just get their stipend from the government and it made it difficult because I rarely had people pass the mentoring program they voluntarily signed up for... Just because the refuses to respond to my emails.

    The company it's self was fine, but the students weren't.

    Disorganized

    Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee) Des Moines, IA (US)

    ProsIt was an alright job for part-time, the students were fun (some more than others)

    ConsPoor training, I did not get access to the grading system until mid-term. I was forced to use tests from another instructor and I did not receive them until moments before the test was to start.

    Advice to Senior Managementunderstand that your adjunct instructors have other jobs and don't waste their time with unnecessary disorganization.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
