    I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Apollo provides free education to their employees. There is also many opportunities to transfer to other departments and diversify your career.

    Cons

    There are a lot of fish in the barrell. Hard work in addition to networking are necessary to advance. Getting into the management team may require some elbow rubbing and tie checking.

    Advice to Management

    A management training program for entry level associates would be beneficial. The tuition reimbursement is great and in addition to a lean training for promising employees would have been great.

    Pros

    The dynamic of enrollment requires training and retraining. Brace yourself for learning on the fly and taking ownership for that knowledge. Great skill-sets are learned in this environment through coaching with great mentors and managers. Take advantage of it.

    Cons

    Be aware that on occasion there can be elements where there is a toxic environment. Shield yourself against that by siding with those with a positive attitude. They can be found.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency ensures a stronger, more vibrant workforce.

    Pros

    None, avoid this company at all costs.

    Cons

    Company is a sinking ship, jump while you still have a job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep bleeding the company dry with your excessively high salary. With your lack of foresight you should give that money back.

    Pros

    Apollo Technology is excellent. Bleeding edge technology. Lots of good mentorship. Great place to start a career!

    Cons

    Management is taking a new direction. SaaS is now being preferred rather than developing internal applications.

    Advice to Management

    Company thrives on internal applications. Technology is the foundation, and you are breaking it.

    I have been working at Apollo Education Group (More than a year)

    Pros

    They provide an education to some of the people who we call, but most of the people that we reach out to don't actually want a degree from U of Phx.

    Cons

    I currently work in the call center. The company seems to manipulate its customers into providing personal information, and I get cursed out and yelled at daily for making telemarketing calls to their "possible" students. The company also seems to change it's policies and procedures weekly. They do not pay their employees enough to deal with the politics, drama, and and angry customers day after day. I say don't apply here. I would not refer a friend to work for this company.

    Pros

    Good starting pay and benefits

    Cons

    Direct management for enrollment representative's is not cohesive. Each manager has a different set of guidelines and the directors that oversee managers do so on a good buddy system.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of knowing exactly what managers are coaching to and more training for management.

    Pros

    The benefits are great and you can attend University of Phoenix for free! The training is awesome and they really go the extra mile with making sure employees have the tools they need to be successful.

    Cons

    University of Phoenix is a for-profit school, so you are constantly trying secure student retention. They have mandatory "volunteer days" that you are paid for but are forced to go to. They also make you go on employee outings to movies, etc. to promote better camaraderie, whether you want to go or not.

    Advice to Management

    Need more of a balance with disabled employees. Newer management needs to be better trained to empathize with employees' situations.
