    I worked at Corinthian Colleges full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had an amazing Admissions Team that worked very hard for me!

    Cons

    For Profit schools are struggling. Our Campus population has decreased 50%, less than 300 students now. As a result, there is a "do whatever it takes" mentality to get people to start school there. There are unrealistic expectations placed on the reps not taking into account that at my particular campus they average about 2 new leads daily each.
    Even though my team had some of the best metrics in the region, we could not hit our budgets. Hitting budgets is the only way one is safe as a director. In addition, putting a certain number of students in school is the only way an Admissions Representative is safe.
    I was fired from the campus because I would not agree to operate in an unethical manner.
    Reps are held accountable to something called an ESCORE. This is a score given to them from an interview and a phone observation monthly. I was encouraged to find recorded phone calls that were "less than stellar" and tear them apart and give the rep a poor score if they weren't successful in enrolling and starting students. If a rep had 10 phone calls recorded and 9 were fantastic, i was told to find the 1 that was weak and score it.
    I could go on and on about the unethical manner in which I was expected to operate. I knew that I would eventually lose my job by refusing to compy, but I was ok with it. I can sleep at night and reflect on my decisions and be proud of them.

    Advice to Management

    Is the salary you are paid worth compromising your integrity? It wasn't for me.
