I worked at Delta Career Education Corporation part-time (More than a year)
The students are great. Some instructors care enough to hold students to a higher degree of learning/writing/education.
This is a for-profit school, and therefore the admissions staff engage in some sketchy practices to lure students in. They deceive prospective students into thinking that they're going to get hired right away with the school's assistance, and that their credits transfer to a number of other schools for bachelor-level degrees. FALSE on both counts. Instructors are saddled with having to perform retention practices, which includes calling all students who do not show up to class on any particular day. Not because the school really cares about them, but because dropping out equals less money to grease management pockets. Staff turnover is high, which affects students. Instructors pass students through who cannot critically think or spell. They dumb down exams and hold the students to such a low bar that middle school students could get degrees here. In the end, students don't get hired. Pay is very low for teachers, compared to community colleges. Some Program directors have not been in the field in over 15 years, and have no clue about current practices to keep students abreast of career expectations and job tasks.
Advice to Management
There's no use in offering advice here. It falls upon deaf ears because everything is about the bottom line.

The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Delta Career Education Corporation.
I had a group interview with 2 other candidates and 2 interviewers (both very pleasant). I was contacted within 10 days and asked to come back for another interview. I interviewed with 2 people- a Dean (very pleasant) and a regional recruiting manager (who showed up late and asked ridiculous questions).
- The Regional Admissions Supervisor asked the same question 5 times at least. Also asked something about "what would you do if your cubicle was filled with tennis balls?" Answer Question
