    Pros

    Horrible all around. Nothing good to report. Horrible hours ripping off students with no direction.

    Average pay. Horrible scam industry. Lackluster education with lazy teachers. All about profit.

    Hire educators not sales reps. Carry normal business hours and let the programs sell themselves if they could.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute part-time

    Pros

    Faculty and Staff were a real pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    It was obvious that corporate is more concerned with numbers than quality. Students were urged to sign-up simply because they had the capability to pay, but maybe not the aptitude. It then becomes the instructors responsibility to ensure the students pass when it was obvious most of the students didnt have the attitude or aptitude to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Quality of quantity is what makes for successful business. At the cost of less profits, ITT should have vested some money in much needed modern equipment and recruit students who will be successful. After that, the referrals will take over.
