    I worked at Remington College part-time

    Pros

    Some good students who are thankful for the opportunity and any help you send their way.

    Cons

    Management is AWFUL. New deans are nitpicky and micromanage beyond belief. You are also expected to do ridiculous amounts of work for little pay. One live lecture a week, two live tutoring sessions a week (with your own students as well as any other ones who happen to show up), post in chat to most students 5-7 days a week, grade within a 48 hour turnaround time OR ELSE (and believe me, you will get an OR ELSE if you are late!)...and did I forget to mention they'll pack 45-75 students into a class? You are also measured on how many of that grouping pass, so if you have phantom students who never post, or students who hand in 8 weeks of work in the 11th hour, be prepared to accept and grade them all without penalty or you will hear about it. On top of all that, many students are extremely demanding and entitled and feel that posting "great job!" in discussion once a week should get them an A (and they will gladly complain to the campus president if they do not receive such). Former management was much more receptive to faculty and staff concerns. Current management is only concerned about numbers and retention. A truly sad train wreck for what once was an incredible opportunity for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    It may be too late now, but go back to the way things were. Stop measuring quantity over quality. Stop retaining students who are not actively pursuing their own education and focus on those who are dedicated. Stop blaming faculty for the failure of those same nonparticipating students and be supportive instead of punitive and micromanaging their each and every move, right down to timing hen emails are answered.

    I have been working at Remington College full-time (More than a year)

    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

    I worked at Remington College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Comparable pay to other call centers
    -Great Coworkers
    -Flexible with schedules and time off

    Cons

    -Poor lower level management
    -You will leave work feeling dirty. This 'college' purposely targets low income, minority, and veteran families for the purpose of collecting government money. They over charge for programs that aren't properly accredited and leave the students that finish their program $20,000 in debt, and without any job prospects.
    -They harass prospective students via phone calls, emails, and paper mail.
    -They had a mass firing after I left, and strategically fired separate groups at a time so they could space out their lack of employees. The last groups to be fired were threatened to have pay withheld (for shifts they already worked) if they didn't show up, even though they were just coming in to be fired.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to shut down Remington College.

    I worked at Remington College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Students were teachable, and they appreciated their instructors.

    Cons

    After almost 5 years of teaching at Remington College, (3 years adjunct and 2 years full-time) I submitted a 2 week notice to resign. Beginning in August, 2016, management changed and soon discontinued paying instructors for all prep time, and began paying a flat 3 hours combined total prep time a week for all courses taught. In order to fill educational gaps, most of my students benefited from my comments and grading practices that took many hours a week to complete, especially when teaching English Composition and Written Communication. However, Remington ceased from paying for all extra hours necessary to meet students' needs, especially in writing. So, at the end of the 2016 Fall Session, I resigned.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the coursework and students' abilities in writing, and enable instructors to meet students' needs, with sufficient pay for hours devoted to meeting each need.
