    Former Employee - Student Advisor in Phoenix, AZ

    I worked at Corinthian Colleges (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a pretty easy job. Worked with students in their Wyotech school. The salary was alright, around $35,000 a year. What you would expect for this type of position. Staying in touch with students regarding their education and coursework.

    Cons

    Sometimes students seemed unmotivated. Some of the students had a lot of family or personal issues that hindered them from finishing. High student turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Better student vetting process and family participation to reduce amount of students not graduating. I hear the corporation has closed so this campus may no longer be open.
