    Pros

    Student first environment. Everyone and everything is focused on making the student experience and outcome the best it can be.

    Cons

    Dealing with the enormous burden of government regulations. It's time to make education a level playing field. "Not for profit" state schools have to much advantage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the sky is the limit

    Pros

    Committed to student success and producing a quality work environment for faculty and staff. The company is outcome focused and committed to securing gainful employment for its graduates. The school has great a great Student Services department that help students overcome various obstacles and challenges. One example is a food pantry that to open to all students to help them if they fall on hard times. The true secret to the school's success are the great instructors who have many many years of experience and bring that experience to the classroom and to the lab. TWS Jacksonville is truly a great school. I dare you to stop by and pay a visit, you will be very impressed with what you see despite what some negative people may say.

    Cons

    None at this time. Just keep going in the right direction!

    Advice to Management

    I have been very happy since I have been here and look forward to many more years here. Just keep up the good work. Your labor isn't in vain and many of us appreciate a great place to come to work every day.

    Pros

    Competitive pay and nothing else.

    Cons

    Focus is on quantity and not quality. Too many students graduated a program that could not weld or pass a background check.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality and be fair with your staff.

    I have been working at Tulsa Welding School full-time

    Pros

    I wonder how many of these people got fired from TWS? It is natural to blame someone when you feel like you have been wronged. However, slamming a company that takes good care of their people is not right. TWS has high expectations regarding their employees. They work you hard, but they pay you accordingly.

    Cons

    Classes start every three weeks so there is no down time whatsoever. Again we get paid to work.

    I worked at Tulsa Welding School (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The industry of welding is very complex and diverse. It is great to be involved with students that truly are ABLE to take advantage of this opportunity. There are a couple of staff members that are truly there for the right reasons and continue to be resilient for the benefit of the school.

    Cons

    Operated by a corporation that hides their true desire of greedy capitalism behind their mission statement. Over and over again, the corporate office chooses to keep staff members that have no integrity and utilize manipulation to bring in the student body. The high turn over rate in the middle management should be an indicator to outside employment seekers that something is not right. Heed the signs!

    Advice to Management

    Find another opportunity before you are terminated. Unless you are one with no integrity!

    Pros

    Support staff is great and senior field reps do a great job mentoring he younger reps. You're pitching top school in the country for welding.

    Cons

    4 Different bosses in one year. Can't create a lot of momentum doing that year in and year out. It's tough
