    I worked at Bridgepoint Education full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -Good benefits ( PTO, health, Sick days)
    -Great training (two weeks, very thorough)
    -Modern office building centrally located

    Cons

    -controversial product (a lot of students only enroll to get federal student loan stipend money)
    -lost accreditation (may have regained since I last worked there)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of the management really had no clue how to manage a team. They were just standout in sales or buddy buddy with upper management.

    Strategic Partner Development Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bridgepoint Education in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, received a call the next day wanting to schedule a phone interview. Completed first and second phone interview within two days. I had done research on the company and realized that the reviews on working there weren't the best and also that the stock price had dropped pretty significantly. I asked the recruiter about this and she said that the company was restructuring. While i understand that, it seemed a little fishy. The position turned out to be a lot more cold-call sales than I was interested in and I'm pretty sure that's the reason they didn't want to move forward with me.
