    Best job I've ever had......until they closed the Michigan campuses!

    Premiere Senior Admissions (Former Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    ProsGreat pay and benefits. Free Degree program completion. I worked in admissions and made nearly $70,000 a year.

    ConsClosed 13 campuses with no warning. As a single mom of four kids, not good! Offered jobs in other states but no relocation assistance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe least they could have done was offer relocation assistance. People aren't able to just uproot whole families!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Campus Representative

    Campus Representative (Former Employee)
    Bloomington, IN

    ProsKaplan Test Prep was a great part time job as a student. The manager was great, the pay was adequate, and the hours were very flexible.

    ConsGenerated leads from college students is not an easy task. Must be willing to accept rejection and continue.

    Kaplan is a great part-time employer.

    MCAT Teacher/Tutor (Former Employee)
    Reno, NV

    ProsExcellently organized resources
    Welcoming culture and people
    Decent pay if you are OK with part-time, irregular hours
    Clear expectations, training, evaluations, and feedback
    Interactions with motivated students makes the job rewarding
    No grading homework!

    ConsThere are a ton of resources to learn about
    Even with a really good training program, you may feel unprepared to answer specific questions
    The nature of part time work and irregular hours

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. This has been one of my favorite places to work. I wish there were a way to work here during more traditional hours so that I did not have to be away from my family during prime family time. I understand that the courses have to meet student schedules, though. I think you offer solid training, feedback, and have a high job satisfaction rating from many short-term and ultimately transient employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
