Great Atmosphere and the students are nice.
Instructor - COMP101 "Introduction to Computers" (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAJuly 10, 2015
Pros: Freedom of class structure
Cons: Term-to-term schedule; not dependable
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 – more... 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. – less

not bad if you enjoy calling random people
Admissions Advisor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJune 24, 2015
Pros: pay
Cons: cold calling
While the pay is good the details and the pressure of the job can become to much. Way more negatives then positives.

Cold calling sets up for a rough day. calling numbers in bank since 2004 isn't a good idea. needed to have better balance when it came to working with students.

Student Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Houston, TXJune 8, 2015
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.

The moral is very low and employees do not like their jobs.
National Admissions Advisor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 16, 2015
Policies and procedures changed frequently, and the turn over rate is EXTREMELY high. Most people their are looking of other employment and feel that the job is VERY stressful. A lot of employees don't have positive comments about their jobs or AIU as a whole.

Admissions Advisor (Former Employee), Beaverton, ORApril 7, 2015
Pros: na
Cons: na
The company pays high wages to get the staff. The company lies on the job to get the people to come to work for them. You are not told that you are really doing telemarketing on the phone to get the students enrolled in school.

Admissions Advisor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 2, 2015
Pros: great start pay
Cons: long commute, all about numbers, too much like a call center
I loved being to speak with different prospective students and help change their lives. There is too much pressure to make your quota no matter what it takes. There is inconsistency between training and once you get on the phones.

NATIONAL ADMISSIONS ADVISOR (Former Employee), Hoffman Estates, ILJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: helping people go to school
Cons: hours
Contact potential students to enroll in school and help them through the preparation for school. I prospected 25% of my day and 50% conducting interviews with potential students. 25% is follow up with current students to help them with their documentations for school. The remaining 25% is presenting to the Director of Admissions the students we deem are a good fit for the school.
