    Pros

    Worked with some great people and the students are amazing. The job can be rewarding!

    Cons

    For profit schools care about money instead of their employees and students. Everyday you are on edge not knowing if you will get the pink slip due to their financial woes.

    Developing students was the most rewarding. Wow can i say to changing lives.

    It's simple look at what works. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at The Art Institutes part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My co-workers were all great. Even my immediate management. There were lots of training opportunities. Senior management at the location was very accessible, tho not responsive.

    Cons

    Corporate policies from Pittsburgh, PA dictate everything. When the corporation isn't making money, you can expect a lot of take-aways. Year after year, things got worse. Pay is low to start with and raises are infrequent and small. Virtually no benefits for part-timers, the majority of the faculty. The demands placed on faculty got greater every year.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the high-performing schools, and fix the low-performing ones.

    Pros

    - Flexible hours
    - Friendly staff
    - All the food areas are nearby
    - you get student discount on their store
    - you have all the best sources in school
    - work both PC and Macs

    Cons

    - start on minimum wage but you'll get a raise in a year
    - not enough hours

    Advice to Management

    Wish there was a live chat for students who needed help for assistance, other than calling from a phone, like a tech support or something.
