I worked at Southern Careers Institute full-time (less than an year)Pros
NONE! The pay was decent but other than that NOT WORTH IT!!!!Cons
Terrible, stressful work environment. They expect you to reach a certain quota which hardly anyone reaches, with leads that are sub par at best. The morale is extremely low, they make you work 7 days a week because they are always way behind in numbers/enrollments. The campus is run down. Not professional at all. High turnover rate. I was only there for about 5 months and they had fired 5 people and about as many quit during that short amount of time. And apparently there was a mass exodus before I got hired as well.
Whatever you do - do not accept a job offer from this company. They do not care about their employers. They do not care about the students or the education. All they care about are the stats. Getting those enrollments. This is basically a telemarketing job - and you're expected to harass people to "convince" them to enroll even if it means ruining their lives. They don't care about making a difference. They talk the talk but they do NOT walk that walk!
They are full of liars and manipulators. They even lied to me about how much they were going to pay me. If they offer you job here DO NOT ACCEPT IT!! Just keep looking - anything is better than this place.Doesn't RecommendNegative Outlook
