I worked at South University full-time (more than an year)Pros
It is a relaxed atmosphere at time to a certain extent. The training was good, enjoyed the people I worked with immensely. Good pay and Good benefits.Cons
Honestly you have unrealistic expectations as to what it is you are supposed to do as an admissions representative. Often times depending on what team you are on greatly influences how you perform. If you are on a team without the leads that another team has you are held to the same standard as them which makes it very hard. The atmosphere of the job could be very tense at times do to the industry and falling stock price.
You are almost expected to get blood out of a stone at times do the variables that are our of your control. Management does not care about this and believes that this is your job to fix this. Management and others listen to EVERY call and you can be written up or even let go if you slip up your wordage once. I understand this practice due to the nature of the business but saw many people just make a simple mistake get in trouble of something they had no idea about.
I never felt secure with my job there as every week someone quit or was let go. I never saw a single person finish their two weeks there in the year I was there. Upper management comes across as very callous and paranoid even yelling at people for wearing "competitors' clothing on school spirit days wear they were encouraged to celebrate their alma maters.
Another weird thing is that the company doesn't "fire" people very often but gives them a month long severance so that they will willingly quit so it shows they didn't fire them.
The job is just a job but don't expect to make a career out of it.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Be more realistic in terms of what you expect from your employees. Reward us with complements not just continue to threaten us by telling us you will find someone else to do it.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
