A great place to start a career...

Admissions Advisor II (Current Employee)
Naperville, IL

ProsIn short, Benefits are good (healthcare, dental, vision, 401K, Profit Sharing, etc.), Salary is more than competitive for the industry (starting 40-43K/year), Very valuable training and skill development in this position. Skills translate into: RECRUITING, SALES, MARKETING, CALL CENTER MANAGEMENT, ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT, HUMAN RESOURCES, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT, etc.

ConsMorale is somewhat negative. Many disgruntled colleagues because of lack of advancement opportunities. Hours can be inconvenient and schedules are particularly inflexible. 9-6 M-Th with 1 late night (10-8), out at 4 on Fridays, and one mandatory Saturday per month. Also, this job is very monotonous, 3 years in and the job responsibilities have not changed much.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize leadership to promote to management rather than promoting recruiting talent. Just because someone recruits well does not mean that they are an effective leader.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
