    I have been working at Pearson VUE part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a job and you get paid

    Cons

    This is an okay job for short period of time, but it's difficult to recommend staying here long term. The job is boring and repetitive with no space for growth or advancement. Schedules shift constantly making it difficult to organise your life outside of work. Pay is low and uninspiring.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Pearson VUE full-time

    Pros

    Pearson is a terrible company, there are no pros

    Cons

    They don't communicate at all with new hires, their platform is terrible, and they rescinded all of the job offers less than a week after giving them. They did not compensate for time spent signing all of their stupid agreements and forms.
