It takes a variety of specialists to operate, maintain and innovate everything from information technology to curriculum development for the nation’s largest private university. Software engineers, student services coordinators, marketing professionals and business analysts are all necessary.
Our faculty members must meet rigorous standards. A master’s-level degree or higher is required in addition to practical experience as a working professional in order to teach with us.
In addition to teaching positions, we also employ faculty development administrators, campus college chairs and college deans. And to meet the needs of our students, we employ academic, financial and enrollment representatives, and much more.
I worked at University of Phoenix (More than a year)
I loved the company culture. Management was great.
There's really nothing I have for here, other than maybe limited room for advancement, but i was only there for a couple of years. Still, I did apply for a couple of positions.
Advice to Management
Be more like the manager I had. She was great.
I applied online. I interviewed at University of Phoenix.
Pretty easy, lots of behavioral questions, and as long as you tie some experience into it you should land the job. Focus on customer experience and passion for education and you will be fine.
