I worked at The Art Institutes part-time (More than a year)

Pros

- on-campus
- flexible schedule
- great staff

The supply store at the Art Institute of Seattle (where I was employed) was a great job, and definitely a nice change of pace from just going to school and going home to work on homework every day.

Cons

- Not many hours
- No benefits

Sadly, we were only ever given around 10 hours a week. Nowhere NEAR enough to live off of, and no real benefits to speak of.

    I worked at The Art Institutes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It "looks" good on a resume?

    Cons

    -unethical practices (it used to be worse, but luckily the government has highly regulated for-profit schools)

    -turnover is so high that no one will get to know you until about 6-8 months in, thus making it an uncomfortable environment. There's about 5 people out of 32 who have been there more than 3 years.

    -worst micro-management anyone will ever experience

    -you are cold calling people people who didn't really request information about the school AND who have already said they're not interested 10+ times.

    -manager's aren't very intelligent or good at managing.

    -other departments don't like working with admissions 9due to high turnover and improperly trained new people) and make it very aware

    the list is endless, really.

    Pressured into starting students that aren't good canadites. Endless cylce of putting more kids into debt. Finaancial Aid only covers the tip of the iceburg if they can even qualify for grants. Then have to make payments to the shcool plus student loans.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the price of Admissions.
