    I worked at Vatterott College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employees at Omaha campus were friendly and easy to work with, dedicated to helping students.

    Cons

    Senior management micro managed everything - daily we spent hours on conference calls with senior management. Eventually the campus was closed.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    I don't know seeing as I was interviewed 3 different times by 3 different department managers. Each time was like a first interview, each time I was hired. But then they would leave and nothing would happen with my paperwork.

    Cons

    Very fast turn over. Teachers don't know 100% what they're instructing on. Some kids are correcting the teachers. Facilities aren't up to date with technology.

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective in who is in management, and who's chosen as a teacher.

    I worked at Vatterott College (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros.Several instructors quit in the middle of class terms.

    Cons

    Major scam. Students do not have to show up to class to get grades. Administration will fudge grades so everyone passes. Administration discouraged students from complaining during accreditation review. Had to quit bc i felt like i was being complicit in ripping off students who ended up deep in debt with an unusable degree.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bribing students to attend classes. Stop luring prospective students in with free merchandise then making it difficult for them to leave without enrolling.

    I worked at Vatterott College part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Easy to get brought on board. Only 1 interview.

    Cons

    They go to class for 20 hours a week. That means the prof has to be there for at least 25. It doesn't leave much time to prepare for class.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the curriculum and the time commitment.

    Excellent co-workers. Local environment was supportive.

    Pros

    Co-workers are very professional, and willing to help you get situated within your field. You have ample opportunity to give your students plenty of class and/or lab time.

    Cons

    If you are working full time, the time period between morning and evening classes can be troublesome. If you are hired on temp, you won't get benefits, until you are under contract.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the instructors to assign the students more practical in shop projects.
