    I worked at Remington College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility and pay were good, felt like you were making a difference in the lives of some students

    Cons

    Literally the worst micromanaging and complete negativity from the new turnover in management. The former leadership was caring, personable, and mentored us. Now, they are just looking for fabricated reasons to let people go as they downsize all around.

    Advice to Management

    Care about people over profits

    Pros

    Its a decent gig if you work there part-time and the pay is decent.

    Cons

    The hours are unstable and management does not support their teachers. The school is operated more like a company and is interested only in money. Almost any potential student is accepted into their programs because the admission staff is only concerned about numbers. Also, almost anyone can by hired on as teacher as long as they have one year of experience. This leads to high teacher turn-over and unskilled instructors.

    Advice to Management

    Hire teachers with better qualifications and be more selective with student enrollment.

    Great pay and great overall company to work for. It has really gone uphill in the past year , and is growing a lot.

    Cons

    Wish the company did more company outings to engage all of the departments together.

    Pros

    Some good students who are trying to better themselves and get an education and who CARE!

    Cons

    Get ready for micromanagement central. You'll have classes filled with dozens of students, many of which will hand in three weeks worth of work at one time halfway through the course, but don't you DARE delay in grading them or replying to an email or you will be fired. You will be asked to grade all those dozens of papers in a ridiculous amount of time, so if you have a course which is writing intensive, be prepared for hours of work and little pay to show for it. You will also be expected to be available to students and administration at any and all hours. Nights? Weekends? Pick up that phone and take those calls, or get online and tutor students online (again for no additional pay, and for students who are not even your own) or ELSE. Emails from upper management are sent either to chastise you for whatever you did not do correctly this week (and there will always be something unless you are putting in your 70 hours a week for a part time job), or to browbeat you into doing even more work for the same pay you are already getting. It started off wonderfully, with interesting classes and materials, but sadly with the new management regime it has regressed into a low quality overpriced diploma mill dedicated to taking students' money just like the others of this ilk. My own manager oftentimes ignored emails from me, but if I did not respond to hers within several hours, look out! Just a bad situation all the way around.

    Advice to Management

    They do not care. The good people who are here recognize this and run for the hills as soon as able. Those who have no other options remain as whipping posts until they too are driven out or fired. Take the job if you need the money or experience, but retail jobs are known to treat people more nicely than my supervisor here did.

    Pros

    Being able to assist the graduates obtain employment. Seeing the students/graduates gain employment in their chosen fields. Helping and caring for the students.

    Cons

    Management only caring about numbers and not the students or staff. Since new management they have promoted individual that are not qualified and don’t know the job.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your staff and students needs. Numbers are not always everything
