Admissions Agent (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – February 5, 2013
I really miss working for this company, my supervisors were so nice and respectful and made me feel like one of them ignoring the job title and power. I learned a lot working there, customer relations and being part of a company that is so into education.
benefits, good management, family oriental company
Supportive environment with an excellent group of people.
Graduate Researcher (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 6, 2012
My position as a graduate researcher at Antioch was a paid position open to first year MA students. There was a tremendous amount of personal growth and on the job training about the administrative and planning aspects of the higher education industry. I also learned a great deal about Higher Learning Commission's accreditation criterion as the university committee planning meetings I sat on and reports I wrote were for the purpose of ensuring Antioch maintained HLC accreditation. These reports involved student enrollment statistics, time to completion, drop out rates and students verbally reported and written data about significant learning experiences. My typical day involved primarily coordinating the post graduation interviewing and portfolio review process for graduating students in the B.A. in Liberal Studies program. My coworkers in the department were core faculty and the other administrative assistant. All were pleasant to work with (with one exception -- will not name names). with the first year of my MA now behind me, it is now necessary for me to pass to baton at that position and move on hopefully building my skill set and knowledge base by other jobs in the higher education industry.
casual, yet professional environment -- flexibility of work hours.
unable to hold position during the second year of my program.
