    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Independence University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Independence University has a wonderful approach to supporting it's staff and students. After spending many years in online higher education, I found Independence after being laid off at my previous school. My experience so far has been very good in terms of the onboarding and training process as well as the extremely transparent communication from the school CEO. The staff and management have a very warm and inclusive culture. The students are genuinely looking to improve their lives and the school does a lot to help support students to successfully attend and complete a degree. The hours are consistent and no overtime is required. A top priority for me was that I could work from home and the school has provided me with excellent equipment and software to do my job with ease.

    Cons

    The one-size fits all compensation and benefits package for Admissions Consultants was something I didn't love, but had to accept for an staff level position. Having to wait 90 days for benefits was disappointing, as I didn't have medical insurance when I was laid off and had 4 months without health coverage. I was willing to sacrifice these things because I wanted to stay in online higher education and most importantly to work remotely, since most positions are on the southwest/west coast regions.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend that management consider providing different packages for tenured candidates.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Independence University (Phoenix, AZ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Easy, since they know you won't last. They have you do a phone interview and then a panel and then a small group interview. It is a formality, however if you are breathing say what they want to hear you are a shoe in.
