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 have been working at University of Phoenix full-time (More than 3 years)
The campus is very newly remodeled and there is a lot of opportunity for education and life long learning skills. The on boarding process is amazing and they welcome everyone with open arms.
The organization as a whole is going through many changes, and it's difficult to feel safe in the position because of the annual layoffs.
Advice to Management
Management does a great job, they can do better with communication change to employees
I applied online. I interviewed at University of Phoenix (Phoenix, AZ).
Whole thing took about a week. Thirty minutes for interview with two hiring managers. No real stress just answer the questions as asked. They did nothing to trip you up just straightforward.
