    I have been working at Western Governors University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    can be flexible for family. good vacation and the benefits aren't great but benefits are provided at a cost and you can earn your degree at a minimal cost.

    Cons

    Once upon a time this was a place where students mattered more than the enrollment numbers. However today, enrollment managers are horrible driven by brown nosing to get a promotion into something else. It's transformed to who you know not what you know. Micromanagement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax STOP the micro management

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Western Governors University.

    Interview Details

    First phone interview went well. I was asked what I knew about the school. Was told upfront about salary & requirement to not work elsewhere during first year.

    For the second interview, I was not told it would be a video interview until the manager asked me to approve the camera. His demeanor was much less friendly than the recruiter from the first interview. He asked if I had any questions about salary. When I asked if there was room for discussion about working elsewhere, he became agitated and said there was no reason to move forward with the interview if I could not commit to only working there. Due to the low salary, this was not something I could agree to, so the interview ended there.
