The absolute worst experience of my life

Admission Representative (Former Employee)
Newburgh, IN

I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time for more than 5 years

ProsVacation time accrues quickly if you can put up with their nonsense long enough to use it. Just don't plan on taking any type of PTO during the beginning of a start or around a holiday as it is prohibited.

ConsPoor work/life balance. Minions (non-managers) were forced to work six days a week with little or no notice. Holidays were also MANDATORY in most cases. Unethical practices abound. Admission reps were told to beg, borrow, or steal in order to get students to sit in class. Constant reductions in force, which were then blamed on the admissions department. Rapidly declining student population that was NEVER addressed at the campus where I was employed. Very stressful work environment. Unattainable goals set by corporate led to VERY unethical activities. It was either exceed the astronomical goals given to you or be terminated. I cannot say enough about my awful experience. Did I mentioned that the cost of an Associate's degree there is a little more than $46,000? Yes, $46K for a less than mediocre education. Equipment was old and out dated. The local high schools have better equipment than this place. There is also no admission requirements so someone who could barely read or write their name could be admitted to the school as long as they had financial aid available to cover their tuition. They are always hiring, because most of the talented employees who do their job well end up resigning. I am embarrassed that I stayed with this poor excuse of a "college" for so long.

Advice to Senior ManagementFor this company to remain in business they need to clean house, beginning with the CEO.

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

Worst company I have ever worked for

Recruiter (Current Employee)
West Palm Beach, FL

I have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time for more than a year

ProsCo-workers may keep you sane unless they're trying to steal your students

ConsEverything....
You could be the "heavy hitter" one week and that same week get written up because of a "2 conducts a week" rule... however, the leads are so terrible, you're lucky to get that.
No sense of appreciation for employees
Headquarters appears to view their constant turnover as an "oh well hire someone else" mentality instead of vesting in training, hiring the right people, and coaching effectively.

Advice to Senior ManagementTRAINING, TRAINING, TRAINING!!!! Do not feed sales staff to the Wolves, this does no one any favors.

Admission

Admissions Representative (Former Employee)
Oakland, CA

I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat teamwork, management is OK. During my employment, students were a focus. Not sure current management at headquarters has student success as their top priority.

ConsFelt like we were micromanaged by headquarters. Senior management doesn't seem to understand what we do. Very stressful to hit your numbers. High turn over rate.

Advice to Senior Managementtake care of your people

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