    Pros

    The company truly invests in adequate office supplies, technology, and equipment, for their admissions and administrative staff, as well as and gear for students. The admissions staff are expected to do one thing, enroll new students. Not orientations, not community events, not campus events. Just enroll new students. They do not expect or desire admissions to be saddled with 20 different auxiliary responsibilities. As a result, the expectations are higher.

    Cons

    MEETINGS. MEETINGS, and more MEETINGS. Morning meeting, mid-morning meeting, mid-afternoon meeting, end-of-day meeting. In addition to admissions meetings, the sales process is not a one-call close, see you at orientation. The admissions process is a longer than most for-profit schools involving at least 3-4 campus visits for the student to complete. Makes it difficult to manage a daily schedule of new interviews and multiple be-backs. I believe the process is so drawn out that it may become burdensome for some prospects. Also, Rotating Saturdays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the meetings to boost productivity. Streamline the ridiculously long interview/presentation to secure more enrollments.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Concorde Career Colleges.

    Interview Details

    I had meet with someone who had known the new Program Director. She told me when to apply online. After a few weeks I recieved a calls from Human Resources Recuiter and was asked a few question. Was told that a background check would be done and he would get back with me in a week or two. When I finally got the call I was set up for the personal interview with the Academic Dean and Program Director, then waited for that call. Total of a couple weeks.

    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. I did ask for more since it was less than what I was making but was told this was more than what other school as teachers were making. I figured I would be getting yearly raises so I would be back up to what I was making in a few years. That proved to be wrong. Haven't gotten a raise due to campus fiances.
