    “Decent Benefit Package. Salary Is Low So Benefits Are Something.”

  • Health Insurance  (10 comments)

    “Good insurance if you're willing to pay. Do not expect to keep your spouse and child on your plan without paying like a literal thousand dollars...”

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Ranson, West Virginia

    401 Match as well as the health benefits are good. They removed pet insurance which isn't a dealbreaker, but was nice to have. Work from Home is always a bonus

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Faculty in Tampa, Florida

    Decent 401k plan but the pay for full time faculty is a joke

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Charles Town, West Virginia

    18 days vacation (after 3 yrs), 401 K, work from home 1 day/week, health, vision, dental, basic life, etc.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Admissions Representative in Charles Town, West Virginia

    Easy to sign up for benefits and the HR team is very receptive answering questions and making sure things are still provided to employees. The insurance benefits are also pretty fair if you're willing to pay more.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Charles Town, West Virginia

    The best benefit is free tuition for any classes a full time staff member takes. The worst is that the health plan is extremely pricey.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Charles Town, West Virginia

    The best thing about the package is the 401K and APUS match. The health insurance is not to bad but the deductions are high. I have to pay a lot for my medications.

  • May 14, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Manassas, Virginia

    Vacation is readily available, healthcare if you're a single person is pretty decent as well. As far as compensation, it is a little lower than the industry average.
