    Pros

    Great customer service and computer knowledge. My education backs up my various skills that I have that can assist in situations when in need. I love to assist people to make things better and to decipher what a person needs in case of the lack of words. If I can help, it is a good deed for me for that day and many more days to come.

    Cons

    Speak only English and Samoan,

    Pros

    Argosy provided my start/introduction to teaching on a collegiate level. I've worked for the university for nearly 7 years.

    Cons

    Advancement from an adjunct into another role is not easy.

    I worked at Argosy University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You work with incredible co-workers everyday; the programs and resulting degrees are legit/excellent; best/most fulfilling job I ever had.

    Cons

    Third-party call monitoring can end in your termination based on THEIR interpretation of what was said. I had no infractions before getting my first; no chance to correct or defend what was actually said-just terminated.

    Advice to Management

    There has to be more accountability in the decision to terminate productive, hard-working ARs. I was told I said things that I know I didn't say, but was never given a chance to improve or even defend the bogus allegations against me. Too easy for management to let someone go knowing the person being let go won't have any say.
