What Do You Like About Working There?

I have been working for chegg for about a year now and really love it as a part time job for extra cash every month! There are too many tutors on there at times and it feels like you have to race other tutors to the gigs, but if you work off hours it's great!

Let me start off by saying that, despite the feelings you might have for your old employer, you guys are (were?) an absolute saint. I'm the type of person who's so dedicated to the act of getting money ("cheddar," as some refer to it) that it's like pulling teeth to spend that additional thousand dollars on the textbook for the one single blow off class I registered for, which *only* seems to come in the hardcover gold-plated limited edition written on papyrus taken directly from the tomb of Ramses II. When you guys carry that stuff for pennies on the metaphorical dollar, I feel like I'm transitioning from College Freshman to Lazy College Senior in a few short weeks! (except for the fact that Lazy College Senior wouldn't *** out like me and buy the book) But I do actually have a somewhat relevant question! What sort of black magic/voodoo did you do at Chegg to make my books magically appear almost overnight? I think you guys are faster than Zappos and my last performance in the bedroom *combined*. Also, since I kind of seem to be blowing Chegg's proverbial *** here, what was it that you didn't like about working for the world's greatest book delivery service since the U.S. dropped pamphlet bombs over Berlin in 1945?

All books that are ordered by 10am EST are shipped out same day, and it's all via UPS ground. If you live anywhere near KY then you get it damn near same day or overnight. If it's in stock at the warehouse, it is shipped out ASAP. The moment you make an order, the order is sent to the warehouse and the books are pulled. Most of the time within hours. We pride ourselves on making life as easy as possible for college students. Cheggs motto is "Save time, save money & get smarter" and we did our best as a whole to achieve the first two for you guys. As far as my feelings for them? I didn't hate working for them at all, I just wish they would work a little bit with the employees as they did with the customers. They really didn't care if you had a family, if you had kids, if you were in school or needed two jobs, you were demanded to have your full day (10am to 8pm) dedicated to working for them Monday-Friday.

Has Chegg lost alot of customers lately? For me I can now find competing prices at my school and via the internet. A couple of years ago Chegg was the bees knees but now alot of retailers have adapted and have cheaper and/or better prices.

I definitely wouldn't say we've lost customers. Those who are 'loyal' to the company often get great discounts on top of the already fairly good prices. If anything customers have gone up as book prices have gone up more at colleges.
