I have been working at Kaplan University part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Completely online, never have to leave my home to attend meetings or teach house, no need to commute, arrange childcare, etc. Most of the students are wonderful and very diligent.

Cons

The pay for large classes is the same as for much smaller classes. Same pay for 9 students as 30. Some of the students are not prepared.

Advice to Management

Change the salary scale to be more fair. Teaching a class with 25+ students is extremely time-consuming and difficult and should be compensated accordingly.

    I have been working at Kaplan University (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are good, and you get to take classes for free, but the education you receive is not of quality at all.

    Cons

    The admissions advisor position at Kaplan University is a pure sales position. If you think that you are going to be working in academia, think again. It is a high pressure sales environment with an extremely uneven playing filed where nepotism and favoritism are at their maximum level. If the management happen to like you (for whatever reason), then you are in luck, there is nothing that you can do wrong, even if you don't hit your sales goal, they will figure out a way to keep you. BUT, if you are not a favorite, either because you refuse to lie on the phone to perspective students, or refuse to mislead people on the phone, then good luck. This is not a professional job for someone who is college educated. Do not waste your time with them.
