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

    Pros

    It's a good place to find an entry level job that pays well.

    Cons

    It pays well because it's an awful job. If you can tolerate being yelled at by all day unintelligent students who are going to school so they can live off of a stipend and then go home without feeling defeated then this would be an okay job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more support. Don't combine positions without training people. Stand up for your employees.

    I worked at Ashford University full-time (more than a 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.
