Easy to start, but becomes a morally depressing environment.

Former Employee - Admissions Representativte in Sacramento, CA

I worked at Career Education full-time for less than a year

Pros

Interview procecc went so smooth, was guided right through it. Makes one almost think of quantity over quality hmm???

Cons

Pay is low considering that it essentially is a sales job w/out commission (educational institutes apparently can't pay commissions/bonuses) so typically a higher salary applies. The work environment is extremely depressing w/managers coming down on the reps so hard that the employees tend to lose their confidence and decline in their enrollment numbers. Were there a morale boost and ongoing training efforts employees would do significantly better and there wouldn't be such a high employee turnover rate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more money in keeping up the teams morale boost + providing ongoing training & happiness at the work envirnment; And I guarantee you that student enrollment will go up as the employee turnover rate goes down.
