Job overview: Full and part time positions are available. All part-time employees start at $13.50 an hour. Full-time applicants may start in a part-time role during training and progress to full-time as soon they are fully credentialed. The transition to full-time starts at $15.00 an hour.

The Testing Center Administrator or TCA, has the awesome responsibility of facilitating a great customer experience for hundreds of clients looking to advance their careers in different fields of employment. This customer-facing role requires a super customer service attitude to help testing candidates smoothly in-process and sit for an exam. Most important is the requirement to act with confidence to help candidates feel relaxed for their time-period with us.
This position requires a normal degree of computer savviness. Read that to mean, familiarity with web browsers, Microsoft 365, scanning and digital photo taking. We have a great on-call technical support team to help in times of stray electrons. You’ll never have to learn to program with us, but you certainly will increase your computer literacy.
Here's the kicker: Hours of operation vary from testing center to testing center, but the work hours are extremely flexible. Whether you’re a college student or semi-retired, if you can fit your schedule into our testing sessions, we’ll work with you. We’re closed on most federal holidays (and a few additional days as well). Typically, we’re open Sunday through Saturday to help working Americans with a flexible schedule to test.
Is it hard work? Once candidates are checked in and seated for their exams, the TCA is busy for a few minutes preparing for the next session of candidates. In between sessions, when all duties are completed, TCAs are free to relax, read, or study. We have state-of-the art CCTV systems to monitor candidates which provides for rules compliance and an easy-going work environment.
What are the responsibilities?
Compliance with testing vendor, federal and state licensure rules, policies, and procedures
Continuity of operation, which means showing up to support customers who are trying to sustain or improve their careers (and have paid significant fees to do so)
Verify identification methods with conviction and authority
Electronically (and sometimes paper) check-in of candidates with digital photos, fingerprinting and scanning of pre-requisite documents
Accept the awesome charge of processing I-9 employment authorizations and fingerprinting for federal and state background checks
Monitor candidates for rules compliance while they are testing
Expedite their check-out processes
Handle candidate concerns with courtesy, expediency, and expertise
Maintain a secure and safe facility for the candidates, fellow TCAs and proprietary equipment
Participate in vendor mandated recurrency training on a semi-annual basis
Be able to lift up to 40 pounds (a case of printer paper is our heaviest item)
Drug and substance abuse free regardless of local or state laws is a must
NOTE: All TCAs are subjected to a federal background check since we administer federal exams
The testing centers are tobacco free and non-users are highly preferred due to the close proximity TCAs are with candidates
TCAs may have to sit for extended periods of time during candidate check-in windows
Perform periodic and random walk-throughs of testing areas are required
High School Diploma or equivalent
At least a year in a customer facing role

A decent amount of experience with Microsoft 365 (Office Suite)
Scanning and printing documents
Can work with a computer mouse and typing skills somewhat better than just hen-pecking a keyboard
Ability to interpret TCA exam instructions

A commitment to act with total professionalism during your interaction with candidates
We’re growing, lots of cool opportunities in the works. Join us to find out

When you’re looking to grow your career by stuffing your resume with great work experiences, this will be one of them. Your future employer will look at you as someone who was federally background checked, federally, state and corporate credentialed to proctor exams, I-9 employment verifications and fingerprinting.
