Pros

Free Food at least once a quarter when students have open-house (and sometimes more - lunch on management), regular paycheck, okay benefits

Cons

Unprofessional atmosphere, Horrible Management, All about meeting numbers! numebrs! numers!, force you to lie to potential students just to get them to sign up, over worked and underpaid, office morale LOW, make friday and saturdays mandatory at least 12 weeks out the year (before the start of the quarter, the week of and week after), NO WORK LIFE BALANCE, only national accreditation, employees must "kiss butt" to stay on managers good side or will purposely make it harder for you to meet numbers (i.e. giving you old/bad leads) etc...

Advice to Management

Providing education should be the main focus - not about SALES. Need to treat your employess well and EQUAL and bring up the office morale.

    Pros

    They pay really well to treat you like garbage and have the opportunity to walk all over you.

    Cons

    Your job as an "admissions rep" consists mostly of calling prospective students 3-5 times a day. Most of the time you get hung up on and swore at and then you are still required to call these people until they request their number be removed. If you are lucky enough to schedule an interview, most students are turned off by the $45k tuition for an associates. All the while upper management is constantly threatening to fire you while doing nothing constructive to help you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like dispensable items. Stop micro-managing. Start being positive, it may create a more productive environment. Make yourself more available for questions and assistance (an ACTUAL open-door policy). Start being more open-minded to the fact that your employees work very hard and it might be the economy and cost of tuition that is causing lower enrollment.

    Pros

    It's rewarding to give individuals the chance to achieve their educational and career goals.

    Cons

    As a Rep, most all your time is spent on the phone, calling to set appointments. So there's not much variety in your day. It does become boring and frustrating when after 100 dials, you may have only reached a handful of people.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more resources on retention strategies. Attracting new students is not the only way to make money.
