  2. "Good unity"

    5.0
    Former Employee - Admissions Representative 

    I worked at Eagle Gate College full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Enjoyed the team of people who were all honest and hardworking. They value employees and the students attending there and bend over backwards for students in an admirable way. They have fun days, it isn't all hard work 24/7, They celebrate holidays, birthdays, baby showers during lunch, etc. There is a lot of unity and hard work never goes unnoticed.

    Cons

    The position itself can feel like a sales position at times. But it is balanced out with an understanding that you should only enroll those that really want to come to school their and would benefit from the program. If it isn't a good fit, you don't have to force it but you do want to give all information before coming to that conclusion. A lot of phone calls are made.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Eagle Gate College full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Rate of pay and benefits for admissions was excellent, I started at $19 hr. M-F business hours.

    Cons

    This school works on # of enrolled students to keep their funding. Students are only a # that must pass a test to qualify for financial aid and ANYONE can pass. I saw mentally challenged people become responsible for huge student loan debt... Its unethical and sad that they'd take advantage just to keep their #'s up.

    Pros

    a paycheck at least

    How to spell diploma mill? Eagle Gate. Over priced, under led by CEO, distant ownership uses as a tax write off at best

    I have been working at Eagle Gate College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours with telecommuting options when necessary. Competitive pay for some faculty and executives but not all. Experienced individuals are given a better chance to move up in the company but newer employees aren’t necessarily given a change to expand their experiences.

    Cons

    In education, it’s a constant change in staff and faculty. Once the CEO took the lead and eliminated a lot of negativity in the company, things have run much smoother with a great team.

    I have been working at Eagle Gate College part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The entire staff is so nice and helpful. They treat you like your one of them. The workload is easy to manage and allows for plenty of down time to study.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that I wasn't able to stay on once I graduated. Love this place!!!

    I worked at Eagle Gate College full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    So awesome to work with most students. To be a part of watching someone who hasn't had many successes in life, start to thrive is something that is heart warming and it allows you to know that what you are doing is making a difference in someone's life. Rewarding and fun.

    Cons

    Campus level management is a joke. Find people to hire that employees have a reason to respect. No one is going to be treated like DOA treated some of the team and think they deserve loyalty or hard work from those team members, which means their slack has to be accounted for by the admissions reps that always meet goals personally. Never worked anywhere that showed favoritism like the Murray admissions. You shouldn't let your best employees down by allowing their director to sabotage in fear that one of the reps is better at the job than they are.
