    I worked at University of Phoenix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    University of Phoenix is a great employer. It is a steady job and offers good benefits including education. As an employee you are always busy and most managers are open. The company is going through some changes but I believe they have the best intentions in mind. Is the original online university and is still the best because they do for the most part keep the student in mind.

    Cons

    Make your message more clear. Stop changing things every 5 seconds and truely be open to advice from your employees. You have a Very educated staff and many resources at your fingertips which you could utilize to your benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management: Stay Involved! Your plan is a good one and your core values are solid. There are still several managers and director lingering from before these positive changes and while they "talk well" they don't always walk the talk.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited to fill a new role that wasn't officially in the system, so materials and online testing were actually not applicable to this position. The entire IT/online component of the application process was a bit of a disaster. I continued to get links saying I had not completed some online testing even though I had, and the salary email and the rest of the information sent to me did not match what I had been told by the hiring manager. Also, for a relatively low-paying job, asking the applicant to create a PowerPoint presentation under a limited time schedule that could be used to market the school almost seemed like free marketing consulting particularly as the job I was applying for did not require such a presentation necessarily. The hiring manager also made a statement to me in the call confirming their offer that was professionally a bit insulting I declined the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Being asked to create a PowerPoint presentation in a very short time and then being asked to present it in a conference room without having started the job or being given information to use was a bit extreme.   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    There was too much confusion in the system, the pay confirmation was not what was agreed upon, and the hiring manager made a statement in the confirmation call that was professionally insulting.
