    Pros

    The pay is decent. The benefits and paid time off are good. The work is really simple. You do the same thing over and over again with little to no variation. Good opps for overtime pay.

    Cons

    40 Assisant Directors in the Houston branch, and in one calendar year, 30 quit or were fired. They micromanage you by the minute. If you cannot figure out how to break their system of profit-seeking enrollment methods, you will be miserable. I was fortunate to be very good at the work, so I was left alone. Others I worked with left every day emotionally broken down. The hours are terrible (late evenings, Saturdays). Again, 28 people quit or were fired out of the 40 ADAs at AIH. I know you may be desperate for work (like I was), but save yourself the headache and work elsewhere for a few months and wait for something better. People that had been there for more than a few years ended up in the hospital due to work-related stress.

    Pros

    working with fun and artistic students

    Cons

    The job requirements for meeting admissions goals was unrealistically high and the management was rude and unprofessional. The salary for this role is very low as it is basically a sales job without the sales pay and commissions.

    My manager treated her team horribly and was very unprofessional. All she cared about was hitting her numbers at all costs and that came back at her team with a vengence.

    I would not recommend working at the Art Institute of Portland. Other cities may be fine, but the Portland office was a nightmare to work at.
