I have been working at Penn Foster, Inc

Pros

the education programs we produce and sell are excellent. Our programs change lives at a very affordable price--less than $1,000. The work environment is pleasant.

Cons

Pay is too low for the experience and quality of work I perform. Company only pays the amount paid by other local employers, rather than reward excellence. Company doesn't care if they lose good employees to employers willing to pay more.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get out of the "call center" mentality. We're not selling long distance phone service or credit card offers. Representatives are 'sales counselors' and should be compensated higher. Get out of the employee "revolving door" mentality--pay good employees a good living wage.

    I worked at Penn Foster, Inc as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work, good co-workers, remote workplace, started out a good job with plenty of hours but school lost a huge contract and there was not enough work for everyone.

    Cons

    late paychecks, no chance for advancement, no raises in over four years-I became so bored with work I would try to find extra things to do only to get told not to do "extra work". What job does not want you to go the extra mile?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your contractors, give them at least partial benefits and direct deposit-sending checks through the mail is just not secure anymore.
