Protect Your Career and Do NOT Work Here!

Admission Representative (Former Employee)
Earth City, MO

I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time for less than a year

ProsThere are a few people who generally care about the students and want to see them better themselves. The education is hands-on and is a non-traditional approach to learning.

ConsWhere do I begin? I was an admission representative for this organization about five years ago. The educational component is thrown out the window when all they push are getting students in classes. The recruiting base of students they are trying to draw from are the lowest end of society. These are people who have never made over minimum wage their entire lives and you're supposed to sell them on a degree that costs more than a house by the time they're done to the tune of over $90,000 by the time they would be done with a bachelors degree? The atmosphere is so micro-managed to the point it's sickening. The upper management would constantly threaten their employees. Numerous complains were made against this director and still it took so many years to finally get her fired. They monitor EVERYTHING you do. Bottom line is that it's not an educational institution. If you have a pulse, they will try and find a way to push you into class. If you only show up a day, they can report great numbers to their corporate office in Indianapolis. They're a profit center, not an educational institution at this point. The school is run by sales people, not educators. All they care about is how they can best con you. The turnover rate, especially, in admissions, is riduculously high. If you're not meeting with at least two people a week, you will be fired in a short time period. Pay is terrible and there's no room to move up into better positions. It says a lot that the stock has dropped substantially. Bottom line, don't work here if you want to do meaningful work!

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees like an investment and help them grow instead of throwing garbage on the wall and seeing what sticks!! Treat students like they're an asset instead of a number!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Micro managed, daily and weekly reviews, emphasize negative less coaching on positive, humiliating, high turnover.
