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

    Pros

    Co-workers are very nice, good pay if you have a Bachelors degree.

    Cons

    The undergrad admissions department is very unprofessional, from the moment you begin "training" to working on the team the "trainer" deems you appropriate for. The assistant directors, who are basically team managers, show favoritism to certain people and treat others unfairly if for some reason they do not like you. Feeling scared for your job due to being able to sell a degree program or not is a daily occurqnce for many admissions counselors. The managers claim they are helping you to be better sales people but they only truly help those they are friends with. This is a sales job and if you think you are actually counseling people on earning a degree, do not work here. Sales is at the core of this job and if you cannot make sales goals by getting people who can't afford college to attend even for one module then this is not a position you will enjoy. Turn over is high. Unprofessionalism is very high.

    Post University Response

    July 17, 2017Marketing

    Thank you for posting your review to our Glassdoor page. As an organization which thrives on constant improvement, we are grateful for the chance to read and react to the comments of our former employees. There are great strides being taken to instill all Post Associates with a new pride in what they do on a day to day basis, as they help guide students and potential students through their educational choices. The past management tone, as you describe it, certainly would not be acceptable today. Post University is taking steps to train and educate managers and associates on the most professional ways to interact and communicate. Professional development and training is the key to success here, and Post is moving forward with great programs to be on the cutting edge of professionalism in the workplace. If you would like to provide any further input, please do not hesitate to reach out via email to humanrec@post.edu. We have many associates who have found the right balance necessary to counsel students successfully toward their educational goals, and we’d love to hear more about what you learned during your time with us.

    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.
