    Super low pay.

    Jan 30, 2023 - Adjunct Instructor in Denver, CO
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Extremely low pay for a professor. They pump 40-plus people in a class and pay roughly 1350 a class. Most people only get to teach 1 class at a time. That's right... two students to pay for the instructor (worth in tuition) and 38 for profit. It takes 3 years to get a raise IF you qualify. With 1300 or so part-time instructors, and hardly any full-time instructors, can you really trust this school? Oh, and for fun, throw in 0 benefits. :)

    Cons

    I listed the pros as a con because, let's be honest, $`300 a class is dirt cheap to pay for an instructor. No pay raises at all except every three years, and only then, if you qualify. Avoid working for this school at all costs, unless you just need some work experience. Even then, is it worth it?

    Positive environment

    Pros

    Outreach methods to students are great. Always encouraged and positive vibe from the school.

    Cons

    Courses and five weeks so can be a short turnaround time. However, once you prep for one course, it's not much to prep for others.

    Pros

    Most of the leadership really cares. You can make a major impact on students. Working from home is pretty great too.

    Cons

    The benefits aren't the greatest (kind of expensive for families), but they cover a lot, which is very nice.

    I do not recommend position/company!

    Jun 10, 2022 - National Admssions Advisor in Schaumburg, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The only pro I can think of is that it was a work from home position.

    Cons

    Micro management. Also, I was told that we assist students that call in wanting to attend our online university. But I’m reality, we called and harrassed people to try to force them to stay on the phone to enroll into a school. We received their numbers from online when people enter their numbers on job sites. So if you didn’t force enough people to enroll into school for the week then you’re penalized. You were also expected to read a very detailed and verbatim script which included asking about their personal lives (literally was expected to ask them how their parents and loved ones felt about them returning to school). It was absolutely ridiculous to say the least.
