waste of time

Admissions Advisor (Former Employee) Austin, TX

Prosdecent place to work for about 6 months while you interview for a better job.

ConsThey prey on people to take out loans to pay for school. ridiculous quotas for "sales" people that don't get paid commission or bonuses. They have a secret management plan to not keep employees for longer than about 6 months to a year. They turnover the entire staff at least every year. I also offered some constructive criticism about their training program and the VP got her feathers ruffled.

Advice to Senior Managementretire.

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

Very… Advice to Senior Management: Change for the sake of change is unnecessary, use more common sense. If something works, do not change it. Management is afraid to tell it… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
