    Former Employee - Reception Coordinator in Austin, TX

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Career Education full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Reception Coordinators meet and greet all guests fafe to face and on the phone. Some of them are big names in the Culinary world and that was exciting.

    Cons

    As with most corporate employers who sell stock, the investors are heeded more than the people on the ground in the stores or in this case schools. Poor judgement and decisions lead to unemployment for several thousands.

      I worked at Career Education full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Lenient staff easy to make friends Not too much micromanaging if you're getting your work done

      Cons

      NEPOTISM! If you're not best friends with the Directors / VP you're not going to get anywhere. The higher positions are all taken by a bunch of best friends. The pay is awful compared to your degree/experience etc but if you just want to put your head down and walk out daily and get a small paycheck to get your rent paid, this might be an ok job Lack of communication from every department and manager Overwork you...

      I worked at Career Education full-time

      Pros

      The co workers are the best part

      Cons

      If you are not white,disabled, or know the owner you are screwed. Human resources only helps who she wants. Company dose not give raises and they pay you off how much they like you. Worst company to work for. Never apply here you will regret it

      Advice to Management

      There is no management. The manager has no clue of what he is doing.
