    Pros

    It's very student oriented and focus. The students future is our truest concern.

    Cons

    All about the #'s, and the employees are being neglected.

    Awful, and nothing but lies told to employees and students from higher ups!

    I worked at Everest College full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Salary, made great life long friends! Commute was ok. Office location.

    Cons

    Hours worked! No flexibility with schedule, set days with late nights till 8PM, and system used to clock in and out was slowwwww!
    Working soooo many weekends out of the month! No higher ups volunteering to work for staff, on a weekend needed off. Pretty much forced to do whatever they asked and no questions asked environment. A TON of dishonesty from directors and up, secrets and things not told to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat and trust your people! There was so much good talent working in my location as well as others, and we weren't treated like human beings, but made to work like each student was indeed a number!! All they cared about was numbers, conversion rates and percentages, and giving staff a hard time for any and every personal life concern!! Not treated as people with real feelings and hardships.
    My advice to them, if they get the opportunity to run any business again after the current state of the company which seems to be bankruptcy, do things differently, and perhaps this could be avoided!

    I have been working at Everest College part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work from home, flexible work hours

    Cons

    Most instructors are hired as adjuncts which does create a stable and consistent work environment. Only good for extra income. Low pay.

    Pros

    They sure paid well...but they sure screwed it up didn't they?

    Cons

    Shady people running a shady business. Essentially anything and everything that is wrong with for-profit education was shoehorned into this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck looking for new gigs...

    Pros

    Good pay, vacation, benefits. The staff at the campus where I worked really cared about the students.

    Cons

    Corporate is disconnected from their campuses, stuck in their ways and doesn't listen to suggestions from their campus employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to actively listen to ways to innovate their brand from the staff that knows what it would take to do so.

    I worked at Everest College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, excellent people. The education staff is stable and very caring. Chairpeople work very hard every single day to ensure students have 100% opportunity to succeed. This campus has earned Parthenon status, a recognition of excellence within the company. Both upstairs and downstairs people work tirelessly to stay on that level.

    Cons

    In my five-plus years, we went through a lot of deans. This is not a negative reflection on the school necessarily, but I can think of at least five. The newest one starts at the end of May 2014.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. You give your best every day and it shows.
