    I worked at Corinthian Colleges full-time

    Pros

    This job offered flexible hours, varied responsibilities, interesting work and supportive colleagues. It allowed for creativity and development of communication skills.

    Cons

    Expectations were sometimes unrealistically high and opportunities were limited. The salary could have been improved. It was otherwise a satisfactory job.

    Advice to Management

    Know the territory and customers better. Offer better incentives and product for presenters to work with.

    The potential to help students.

    They want to recruit and implement a sales team but not pay what sales professionals are use to. They also seek out individuals with graduate degrees and do not want to pay for experience and credentials.

    If you want experienced and educated individuals be prepared to pay for the expertise and experience.

    Cons

    - Industry is in a shambles
