    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!!!

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting the campus level management run your best admissions reps out due to fear of their position being taken over. As a senior admissions rep I succeeded every goal and was rated number one the entire time I was employed, but due to management movement ended up with a new President, DOA, and ADOA all at once, and because that team could not meet goals if promoted I was passed up and because new ADOA was worried that I was the obvious one for the position tried and succeeded in sabotage and instead of being backed up by corporate transferred me to another campus where I grew more and more unmotivated because I need a workplace that values me and my contribution, so I left and those that ran me out of the campus that I succeeded every goal, well two months after I left the president and ADOA were fired for inappropriate behavior. So egc is who lost out because I would still be there making the Murray campus rock, but now I am helping a competitor achieve success. Employees who trust their management will always be successful, hard working, and loyal. Pull it together and focus on those who make the company achieve that is not the paper pushing, snitching director of admissions. My successes were due to belief. One last thing promote from within and promote those who have proven successes. .

    I worked at Eagle Gate College full-time

    Pros

    Eagle Gate College offered opportunities to learn new things and expand outside of the norm. The Layton campus is a fun, team atmosphere where students truly come first.

    Cons

    People tend to get spread really thin which just makes it hard to keep the positive energy going day after day.

    Pros

    Convenient hours and freedom to manage your own time.

    Cons

    Company wants a "team" of reps but the team doesn't play well together. Students are just a number in a goal to meet and unfortunately not as important as they're led to believe. Careers are not available as we tell students and most jobs we direct them to they're able to get without a college degree.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes , you've got problems!

    Benefits aren't the best. Quick to increase insurance premiums, but slow to give you pay raise.

    I worked at Eagle Gate College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The team environment with the coworkers was top notch and very helpful

    Cons

    The corporate structure was unbelievably horrible. No resource for employees. The pay was awful and the only reason why people stay is because of their love for education and their students

    Advice to Management

    No thank you
