Current Employee - Admissions Counselor in Denver, CO

I have been working at Ashford University full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good pay and benefits. Opportunity to learn and improve communication skills. Young fun demographic of coworkers.

Cons

High stress, pressure to meet monthly minimum number of student enrollments

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make degrees more affordable. A $50,000 online bachelor's degree can be difficult to justify.

    I have been working at Ashford University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    has given me a paycheck for over a year

    Cons

    everything else. They try to make you work Saturdays and tell you it will be notated if you do not. They constantly change your scheduled hours of work and managers lie to your face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better training and people skills. not everyone wants or deserves to go to college.

    I worked at Ashford University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    People you meet & help. Loved my students however managers always pushed for more, PTO and benefits were about what's expected for a college graduate

    Cons

    Managers always want more, never felt a sense of satisfaction. Saw friends laid off that were great at the job however were not "meeting expectations" which were set at an absurdely high level. Resources (leads) provided are not interested, may speak with 1 in 100 people who are, then you're competing against many other schools that are able to offer benefits you can't due to costs, accessibility etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more for the stress you put your employees through. Schedule (at minimum) activities & events for employees what they don't have to pay for/spend their personal time outside of work to participate at. Cube definitely feels like a prison cell after the first month.
