Negative Outlook

I have been working at The Art Institutes full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Meeting and talking with prospective students

Cons

Know that you're "selling" students an education that is too expensive and not necessarily accredited. It's a FOR-PROFIT "college" meaning that it's the admissions office job to recruit and keep up with numbers instead of really helping the students and their families throughout the admissions process. Expect to spend all day on the phone chasing down 'leads' (calling a list of potential students who showed interest either by just clicking a site or calling a 'warm call' line).

Advice to Management

Please show more interest in your employees work quality instead of gossiping about other employees. It show favoritism and sets a terrible tone for the type of work environment you are encouraging. The training process was more of a 'figure it out' game instead of in depth training. Also, in order for employees to pass certain required tests, it's not acceptable to have them ask for for other employee's to take the test for them while you turn a blind eye and close your office door. Be mindful of compliance issue.

    I have been working at The Art Institutes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are great if you have a family. The President of the college cares and truely has an open door policy. He and the school care about our success and want to help us get there. They assist rather than demand.

    Cons

    Pay is only ok. (40s) to start and I'm hearing there were no raises last year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about your admissions staff. We need the love!
