Good place to work only if you can sell

Admissions Representative (Former Employee)
Boca Raton, FL

I worked at Kaplan University

ProsKaplan university is a nice environment to work. Everyone at the work place is super nice and very helpful. The management is very flexible about schedule and time off as long as you can produce as in sell education.

ConsKaplan university is a revolving door, they are always hiring and always firing. When they hire you they give you a three month time period to make a minimum number of sales and if you can not cut it they will fire you after three months. As such it is not uncommon to see your whole team get fired and you get left with new hires. The recruiters tell you that if you can not sell they will shift you over to a different position but that is a lie and you will be fired if the numbers are not met.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating people like they are so replaceable. You are taking advantage of a down economy which lets you hire and fire people at will but once the economy turns up your ways are over with.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

None of the management did anything to stop them.… Advice to Senior Management: Start paying the people you have. You can't make it on 30K a year as a SC.
