- Bonding/friendship amongst coworkers

Cons- Only concerned about $, not students
- Forced students into outrageous student loans
- Cold Calling to repetitive prospectives that have stated, "DO NOT CALL"
- Continual harrassment of peoples phone numbers
- Management doesn't know how to do their job so they take it out on you
- Mentaliy of staff is that of middle/high school
