I worked at International Academy of Design & Technology full-time for more than a year

Pros

Excellent pay, friendly coworkers, great students, good benefits.

Cons

The hours are not ideal. You'll work til 7-8pm most nights. I'd say the biggest con is how focused the managers are on sales numbers. They practically make you fear losing your job on a weekly basis if you aren't meeting your goal. Also, the leads used to be unfairly handed out. Basically if the manager really liked you, you'd get more solid leads. I have heard they recently changed the process for assigning leads so maybe it's different now. The old Admissions Director used to not even hide her favoritism over employees. I will say the Dean is the nicest man you'll ever meet though.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Disperse leads fairly, show more concern for the students & employees than the numbers, and playing favorites in a management position is a big no-no!
