Think again, unless you're a sales career driven individual!

Assistant Director of Admissions (Current Employee) Houston, TX

ProsBenefits, a good starting pay

ConsI had no idea that this was a sales position; had I known, I would have never applied or taken the position. The work/life balance is awful, it's very difficult to manage your personal life when you're always at work. You will work late (6pm - 8pm) and Saturdays (6 days a week). High stress and redundant work, as the work is simple but your work days consist of calling people who are or were once upon a time interested in the school. You will have to meet enrollment goals. High micro-management! Our team meets at least once a week for a one on one meeting with a manger and two regular meets to see where our sales goals are. The company is on a budget, there is no room for promotion or salary increases, fyi. No overtime. High turnover. You'll work holidays and it's very hard to use the nice amount of PTO given to you by the company because of the blackout dates. If you enjoy sales, you may like it. If not, run!!!

Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest about the nature of this position. My entire training group had no idea that this was a sales job. Work on allowing your employees to have time away from the job. Working six days a week is not okay, It's extremely tiring.

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

    For profit school owned by a big corporation; good, talented local people controlled by big level execs.

    Full Time Faculty (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    I worked at The Art Institutes (HQ) full-time for more than 8 years


    Pros: My fellow teachers were, for the most part, talented and knowledgeable and really sincere about wanting to help students succeed, as were the Department Chairs… Cons: Google "Art Institutes" to see negative. Very low admissions standards. Some students should not have graduated high school. A few teachers had never worked in… Advice to Senior Management: How much space do I have? Admissions portfolios!!! Higher GPA requirements! Give us teachers something we can work with, and your placement percentages will go… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Deception

    Human Resources Generalist (Former Employee) Jacksonville, FL

    I worked at The Art Institutes (HQ) full-time


    Pros: Benefit plans, Tuition Voucher, Pay, PTO Cons: Disloyal leadership, fearful atmosphere, deceit, favoritism, apathetic leadership, backstabbing atmosphere, no performance feedback or reviews for new employees, negative feedback, zero training, bullying management,… Advice to Senior Management: Think over extreme decisions and actually discuss with others to get more than one point of view. Relying on the same employee to make decisions… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
