    I worked at Baker College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Student focused, competitive salary, room for growth. Corporation puts excessive money back into the college. College offers excellent methodology resources for the staff.

    Cons

    Poorly managed behind the educators. Educators are micro managed. Curriculum must be duplicated amongst campuses. It appears that the company spends excessive amount of money building clinics, construction, wall paper, when the money could go towards students.

    Advice to Management

    Excessive money is put into construction, re-wallpapering every quarter - possibly rethink the non for profit model as it clearly doesn't work for the longevity of expensive programs. Cannot compete with community colleges.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Baker College.

    Interview

    A total of 3 interviews are done. Screening, panel, and third interview. I waited a very long time in the lobby before being interviewed. I met a current advisor for the initial screening. Questions were based on a sales position. During the panel interview, I was asked me "sell a pen." Entire process was quite intimidating.
