    I worked at Post University full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Good pay for an entry-level job - Great benefits for an entry-level job - Wonderful, hardworking co-workers - Competitive environment (can be fun) - I enjoyed my Human Resources class

    Cons

    - Immature, unprofessional management - Stressful like you can't imagine - Employee retention rate is unbelievably low, through firing and quitting - Online Admissions Counseling involves working mostly with students in their 40's-60's. It can be highly rewarding, but it is mostly difficult, sad and frustrating. - Your performance is entirely based on your sales (# of students you enroll each two-month module). If you do not hit the unrealistic goal, you may be at risk of losing your job. You are expected to say anything to the student in order to get them to enroll. - Primarily a call center job. Expected to make at least 85-100 calls each day, on top of emailing and harassing the same students over and over again. - Expected to work extra and work after the day has ended

    Post University Response

    February 17, 2017Chief Associate Experience Officer

    Thank you for the sharing these detailed thoughts with Post University management. Please know they are being read, reviewed, and discussed. The opinions of our associates (employees), past and present, are valued and appreciated. Post University, a strong advocate of lifelong learning, believes in constant improvement and feedback is a key component to that process. It is encouraging to read the positive aspects of your experience with us, and, as always, more challenging to read the negative. Both, however, are important for us to explore and understand. The newly structured Associate Experience team at the University is working to make the associate experience extraordinary. We are updating systems, training and coaching Post leaders on best practices for engaging and coaching associates. In addition, we are building new internal relationships aimed at fostering a culture of more frequent and transparent communication. This cultural transformation is already underway, and we continue to gather feedback to help guide the organization to achieve our imagined future. We invite you to reach out to us directly, if you’d care to share any additional information or discuss your experience further. You may email us at humanrec@post.edu at any time. Best of luck to you in your future endeavors!

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Post University full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Post offers a very collaborative environment where all ideas are welcome. It is so exciting to be part of an organization that encourages thinking outside the box. Staff, faculty, and students work so well together in effort to reach the common goal – to offer the most exceptional experience to students. The vibe on the campus is very uplifting and supporting students everyday gives you a sense of purpose. I don't work with students as a part of my core role but I feel connected in creating their experience.

    Cons

    I haven't found any yet!

    I have been working at Post University for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is a discount on education.

    Cons

    They don't care about their employees physical safety or mental well-being. People quit and leave because the culture is bad but no one cares.
