    Pros

    You have your own classroom as an instructor, great staff members (educators, recruiters).

    Cons

    They will admit anyone who signs their name on the dotted line. Most students are not aware of the high fees. Many students are hoping to start at Everest and transfer to a community college or university, not knowing that the credits will not transfer. When they begin to ask questions, the admission representatives (recruiters), get involved to drill them back in and talk them into staying. While most students stay, graduate and find jobs, many do not. Some graduate and find themselves in debt. Teachers are also told to retain a percentage of students per term and if a student withdraws( doesn't matter if it is for sickness, homeless, or another school), they are marched down to the Director's office with others to sign a document stating that they have not retained the necessary percentage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work/ life balance needed, favoritism needs to stop, hard sell tactics as well.

    I worked at Everest College part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I taught the night class. It was a great experience for me. I loved the students, colleagues, and my immediate supervisors. The curriculum was good and we were provided with all the necessary tools and materials to do our jobs.

    Cons

    There seem to be a lot of politics in the senior management. I saw a lot of admissions people under tremendous pressure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Seeing as the company is selling off the Everest entities.

    Teaching interest? Do not consider if you prefer teaching over badgering students by all methods of communication.

    I have been working at Everest College part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    None that I can tell and low pay.

    Cons

    Evaluated primarily on student contact. Little to no opportunity to pass your subject knowledge along to needy students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back off big time in the contact requirements. The student population is adults so let them be adults!
