Typical proprietary atmosphere but with a love for their student body.
Interim Campus Director (Current Employee), Weston, FLDecember 1, 2014
Pros: healthcare, benefits, co-workers, students
Cons: not enough work-life balance overall
AIU-South Florida has been a wonderful place to work. The students as well as the staff/faculty have been like nothing I have experienced in my overall 25 years of experience of proprietary education industry. Unfortunately, this campus is in a teach out so that makes the day to day tasks vary greatly. I have been given the position of Interim Campus – more... Director to ensure the smooth operation of the final stages of the campus closure. This includes dealing with students that have a few more challenges in finishing classes due to a time limit with the school against their own schedules.

The hardest part of my job, currently, is packing up all that is part of the current campus. Making sure the logistics happen timely along with continuing my day to day job function with the P&L and staff/faculty interaction. We are reducing our employee forces every term so this mean more and more falls on those who are left. This allows me to have a more intimate professional relationship and allow those employees that are remaining a change to vent and also grow in whatever aspect they can considering our circumstances.

The most enjoyable part of my job, as well as any other job that I have had in my 25 years, is the interaction with the students. No matter what position I have ever held, talking to the students have always allowed me to remember why I do what I do and why I love the education industry. – less

Senior Student Services/Academic Advisor (Current Employee), Weston, FLNovember 9, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: no room for advancement
I've learned a great deal under various managers about becoming a great manager. Although there are constant changes within the organization, I've chosen to stay on throughout the teach out of the Florida campus. I've come to realized that commitment on my part doesn't necessarily guarantee room for advancement during economic woes.

Working with students – more... and staff have its rewards. Students have shown their appreciation for me helping them reach their goal of earning their degree. Staff members show they care about making a difference in others lives and live by example.

The hardest and most difficult part of what I do is knowing that it's coming to an end and I must prepare for my next journey. My hope is that each person that I've help along the way can look back and know that they can achieve anything positive in life of they would only believe in themselves. – less

This was a really cool first job.
Receptionist (Former Employee), Atlanta, GANovember 8, 2014
Pros: worked on campus and had set hours around my school schedule
I worked in the Financial Aid office of my school as an assistant, so I pretty much did a lot receptionist work. I file documents, scanned in documents, and assist the advisors with anything they needed. I learned how to carry myself in a professional environment, and the importance of handling personal documents with care. My managers and supervisors – more... were amazing. They always made sure we were getting enough hours as well as working with us when it came to our financial aid funding for work study and schedules. My co-workers were pretty cool too. I met a lot of interesting people that I was able to learning different skills from. – less

Live Chat Advisor
Live Chat Advisor (Former Employee), Schaumburg, ILOctober 14, 2014
Pros: nice people to work with (not for); good benefits
Cons: bosses with poor management/people skills
The majority of my job was to chat online with prospective students and answer general questions about the school, the goal being to enroll them into school. Generally, it was a fairly easy job, but slowly, the management added more and more responsibilities for us to do while getting paid the same. Also, this was a for-profit school, and they basically – more... enrolled anyone. AIU was not the most ethical place, and after a while, that got tiresome. – less

Typical Day at Work
Senior Admissions Advisor (Current Employee), Chicago, ILAugust 6, 2014
A typical day at work is 100+ outbound calls reaching out to students that have been separated/withdrawn from the University for over a year.

Conduct phone interviews finding out interest, desire, motivation in obtaining college degree. Set firm expectations and deadlines.

Process reentry application, guide student through reentry process.

Heaving – more... phone an email contact, multi-tasking.

Hardest part of job is being held accountable for another person's decision to move forward with their education, or at least exploring their options.

Most enjoyable part of my job, very rewarding when you know you have helped a student make an important decision toward earning their degree. – less
