I worked at Remington College full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Given the opportunity to learn and develop knowledge in your specific position. Very flexible with hours, but this also depends on who your direct supervisor is. Company also shows their appreciation for hard work with awards. Departments end up like family.

Cons

Miss-communication between departments, and at times blatant disrespect from other departments with a lack of professionalism in front of perspective students. Large pay differences between the sales positions and staff positions cause resentment issues.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Having employees work holidays causes burn-out and resentment. Establish weekly meetings between departments to ensure effective communication and respect are happening.

    I worked at Remington College

    Pros

    Remington College, unlike some of its proprietary competitors, actually does offer a few programs that despite being low paying, are desirable to potential employers. Also, depending on the campus, you will find a few dedicated adjunct teachers. The strength of Remington, from my experience, is most certainly the instructors.

    Cons

    Admissions, financial aid, and career services are all sales positions, with a few other job related tasks included to put different spin on what the ultimate goal of Remington College is: keep the numbers up. More students equate to more government funded financial aid, which means more profit for the "college." Requiring adults to sit down in a cubicle and repeatedly calls prospective students who have clearly expressed that they are not interested is insulting to your employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enjoy the profit until you either A. run out of ill-informed prospective students, or B. the government enforces a way to cut-off your Title IV funding, i.e. Gainful Employment
