Former Employee - Admissions Advisor

I worked at DeVry Education Group

Pros

Extensive training program (1 week) that does prepare you for the job, competitive pay + commission structure and good benefits.

Cons

Job is falsely portrayed as you being an advisor when it is in fact a sales/telemarketing role. You have to call the same leads 3 times a day and often times they did not request information or just hang up on you. Very tedious and no one seems happy at the job. The only reason I found that people stayed was to get their free MBA's but graduating from Keller won't take you too far in the real world sadly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change your recruiting tactics so the University is actually respected, state universities don't hassle or stalk students to get them to enroll and somehow you compare your self to their same level.

    Pros

    DeVry Online- I teach for DVUO as an adjunct (contractor) and have had nothing but good experiences with them. They pay higher than most for online teaching and have very good support systems in place and training for faculty. The new faculty training is the best I've seen. Faculty managers are supportive and back their faculty members, yet keep the students' fairness in mind. For instance, if plagiarism or other academic violations occur DVUO takes action. They may be a "for profit" institution but they *do* have high academic standards. I would recommend other online instructors to DeVry (although it's a lot harder to "get in" now than it was a few years ago due to the explosion of competition).

    Cons

    Maybe a bit more personalized recognition for the top-notch faculty members. I also hear rumblings on the faculty conference calls about it having been several years since pay was increased for adjuncts. We also hear "compliants" about lifting the credit hour teaching limit, but have been told it's being worked on. However, it seems to be taking quite a while so it would be nice if there was some progress on this one. Overall, though, DVUO is a wonderful place to teach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe do anonymous feedback surveys from the adjuncts to hear more about concerns/suggestions and implement ideas to the extent possible. There are many talented instructors out there who will probably have some great ideas!!
