Admissions Advisor/Counselor (Former Employee) – Dunwoody, GA – February 3, 2016
The president of this company is a terrible leader and is not concerned with the employees at the job. Advisor position is set up to fail. You are given leads of people trying to go to work and they expect you to convert them into students. Not professional environment overall.

Student (Current Employee) – Schaumburg, IL – November 6, 2015
I am an online student and have been for the past 2 years. It is a challenge but I am maintaining above a 3.2 GPA despite having a full time job and other duties. I will be graduating in May 2016 with a Bachelors and would like the opportunity to get my foot in the door in Information Technology. My classes consist of reading, writing papers as well as putting together power point presentations. I have virtual lab assignments and participate in online group discussions. Since classes are all online, I have a week to get all of my homework in before the deadline. This should show how discipline I am. I manage my time well since time management is one of the main concerns especially if one has never done online schooling. It was difficult at first but with practice and repetition, it has become quite easy.
Not a healthy environment to work in. Too many politics, employees not treated fairly. HR does not respect confidentiality and not reliable support system. Retaliation is ignored by HR and HR ignores deep rooted problems that can only hurt the school if the public was aware of the schools operational practices. HR will lie to employees and state no one has complained about certain situations when employees have complained, which apparently HR is unaware of employees recording their complaints on their phones proving HR lies and hides unprofessional and unethical practices.
Sr. Campus Recruiter (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 4, 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of a big company. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleagues and learning from them. The office started to get crowded as the company grew
Instructor - COMP101 "Introduction to Computers" (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 10, 2015
My typical work day comprises of teaching a class here or there. When not in class, I fill my time with helping in the Learning Center by tutoring students who need help. During my years at AIU, I have learned how to tutor and teach students with diverse learning backgrounds; how to get them to understand the concept they are trying to learn.
The management style is that of following the guidelines. Everything must be followed to the letter i.e. Documents, printed, written or electronic must be submitted in certain order. I have worked well with all of my coworkers. If there is an issue with one, I try my best to resolve it so that there is no animosity among us.
The hardest part of my job is relying on the level of technology that is available; meaning, there may be some PCs that have corresponding applications and some that lack them.
The part I really enjoy, like, love, (use any adjective here) is when you explain the concept to the student in a fashion that they began to grasp it and you see the proverbial light bulb go on.
AIU is a very nice place to work, people are rather friendly once they get to know you. It's a very professional atmosphere, you must be professional at all times and it doesn't hurt to be a people person as well because students always need help.
