I worked at ITT Technical Institute part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I enjoy passing my knowledge to the next generation; the twinkle in their eye when the finally 'get it' is priceless.

Cons

I made $15.375/hour. I could only work 24 hours per week. They paid no extra for tutoring students with special needs (blind, deaf, speech, ls, etc.)

Advice to Management

you do a reasonable job with the curricula. Some textbooks are horrible. Sit in class and talk to the students.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job that will allow someone to meet their bills, and it's clean comfortable working conditions.

    Cons

    Constant pressure to enroll and get the federal money at all costs. Ethics is preached but not practiced by Headquarters.Constant phone calling three times daily to the same inquiry is mandated.A representative only has four days to work with the people who request information and then the inquiry is given to other reps for continuous calling until it has been cycled through four recruiters and then the lead goes to the companys call center where these inquiries are called up to forty more times.Telephone calls to prospective students are counted by a machine daily for number of attempts, and number of efforts to tthe same phone number. There is a weekly competition among representatives mandated by headquarters where points are awarded for each enrollment, and the recruiters who have the highest number of points for that week are rewarded with the best leads the following week.This is important to the recruiters because their salary is tied into the number of enrollments they receive. There is a board room quarterly where the Director is required to meet with the recruiters to give them their goal of enrollments for the quarters.There is a weekly report that is reviewed for conducts, enrollments and completion of Financial Aid. Constant pressure to get more and more future students is placed on the recruiters.

    Advice to Management

    Everything is controlled by Headquarters, and local management is simply their mouthpiece therefore there is little local management can do except to pass on implementation of rules. The model the company uses for recruitment is antiquated and outdated. This company is supposed to be an institution of higher learning, but most of the times it is just a sales organization with little concern for the employees.

    I have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get to help people that are passed over by traditional education. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    They never seem to know what they're doing at a given time. Everyone wants to help, but there is no real leadership. Just a lot of inter-office politics and backstabbing. No one can get fired, but plenty of people can get laid off.

    Schizophrenic doesn't begin to describe the place.

    Advice to Management

    Older employees seem to remember the good old days. But, since I've been here it's like watching a dog spin in a circle trying to catch its own tail.
