    Pros

    The starting salary seemed reasonable.

    Cons

    The revolving door atmosphere. Everybody is always on thin ice. No Stability for most team members; maybe one person whose been there since the beginning of the school opening; but most people in admissions are new. NO COMMISSION

    Advice to Management

    Never met management. That can be frustrating.

    I worked at Concorde Career Colleges full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility with schedule - able to work early and late if needed
    Location - close to highways
    Attending graduation every 6-8 months - it was the most rewarding part of the job.

    Cons

    Monthly cohort starts, which limited when vacation could be taken.
    Directors were so numbers-based, doing your best was never good enough.
    Had to work two late nights, 10am-7pm - this was difficult, but manageable.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of pushing numbers, be apart of the solution. At the end of the day, it was all about where we ended up. Try to save students more. Try to understand where the students are coming from.

    It's all about the money- charging studnets 12-18% interest is criminal
    If you can breathe and walk your in- most students have no business even being there

    I worked at Concorde Career Colleges full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Originally when I was hired in 2008, this was a very good company to work for and the graduates they produced were exceptional.

    Cons

    By the time I left in 2012 this company had been bought and sold several times over. The benefits went down hill. The staffing went downhill. The moral went downhill. Upper management was more concerned about the "numbers" than they were of giving a QUALITY education to adult students. They made statements that they did not fulfill.....one being that they promised "HELP" with job finding to students.. I still know former students that Did Not Receive job assistance placement! The teaching staff became a revolving door no matter what department an instructor was with. I now specifically ask where did the "new" person in my doctors office "go to school". If they went to Concorde....I will not let them touch me!

    Advice to Management

    Quit worrying about the "number" of students you wish to enroll and give students a BETTER education!
