    I worked at Westwood College

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Glad for the experience, learned a lot. I was glad for the experience, but due to financial issues the company laid off many people.

    Cons

    Because of the pressure on all departments for enrollments and retention at times it was a difficult place to work. The tension often caused people to act unprofessionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rather than have classes start 5 times per year change it to 4 starts. This will give everyone more time to work calmly and professionally with students and each other. The bottom line is always revenue, but remember how you make people feel will keep them coming back and bringing their friends. The fast paced tense environment is felt by everyone, including the students. Slow down and watch your profits grow with happy, satisfied, confident "clients".

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Westwood College in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a phone call 2 weeks later. Scheduled an interview that lasted about 45 minutes. The hiring manager was very kind and explained processes as thoroughly as possible. No work-from-home option for the ID position which I found odd since most ID work can be done remotely.
