    I worked at Westwood College

    Pros

    My coworkers were great and the faculty showed genuine interest in their students.

    Cons

    Although the faculty was great, the school was not regionally accredited like most state schools, but nationally accredited instead.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Westwood College in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was run around the building to the registrar, campus president, and externship director. All had the standard interview questions that you would expect. All typed in a screen as I answered them and barely made eye contact. They all were rushed and seem to just want to pass me along to the next person.

    There were no students on campus at all, despite the fact that it was in the middle of a week day. Hard to believe all of their students are night students.

    i asked some questions about Westwood in general and found out that no one that I had been talking to that day had been there for more than a year, except for the campus president. Most were re-tread employees from other for-profit schools. I was told there was a major "house cleaning" in the past year and that everyone that was now there was performing the responsibilities of several former employees. It did not sound like that campus would be around much longer.

    I sent them all nice thank you note after the interviews, but never heard a word from them after that.
