    Admissions went from a free environment to attempting to enslave employees

    I worked at UTI full-time

    Pros

    Helping students
    Pay before govt regulation was decent

    Cons

    Slavery hours 50 + many weekends.
    Salaried salespeople
    An environment of freedom with the student disappeared and was replaced with reading scripts
    Working in a call center (see above)
    Micro-managing that is filtered down from the higher ups, who have no idea how to effectively do your job
    No collaboration on campus between departments, i. e. working with complete idiots in financial aid
    No separation between pure selling and paperwork
    No employee perks
    Unprofessional attitudes/philosophies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have all management read 'From Good to Great' and reorganize the organization.
    Pay your supporting departments as well as Admissions so that they 'care' just as much about starting students as you do. $$$
    Adopt one selling philosophy and invest in your Admissions staff nationwide
    Stop expanding programs/locations and maximize the best asset you have, your employees.

    I worked at UTI full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers were like family; great work environment

    Cons

    Company had to do several layoffs over the years to stay profitable; lost some good folks.
    Stigma attached to technical schools often forced admissions to enroll less than ready students, last chance kids, and older folks trying to turn their lives around by learning a new trade skill

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Alter marketing to convey image of a technical college to find careers and not a performance school for the Fast and Furious demographic.
