Senior Advisor (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAOctober 16, 2017
A typical day at work revolved around making calls to leads that inquired about the company. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the internal politics.

I love uopx
Campus Operations Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Jersey City, NJOctober 10, 2017
The University is a wonderful company to work for. They offer amazing benefits and the opportunity to advance your education as well. I love working with the students, staff, and faculty. My favorite part is meeting that student who doubts that they can go all the way and then seeing them walk across the stage. Just knowing I had a hand in that journey is something I will always treasure.

Great place of growth
Enrollment Counselor/Trainer (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXSeptember 7, 2017
University of Phoenix was a place of a traditional corporate environment. It was competitive, required you to be on your toes, had a heavy element of sales within it (meeting quotas) and everyone was striving to move up.
I grew as an individual and a worker and was exposed to training and development which I love. The sales element was stressful because some of the benefits were connected to your performance but it also provided the opportunity of growth.

Great place
General Office Clerk (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMay 20, 2017
Enjoyed working there for nearly 20 years. I was able to make some great and lasting relationships while there. It all fell apart when the corporate mentality took over and it was decided that outsourcing my position was best.

it was mediocre
Enrollment Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAMay 1, 2017
The opportunity seemd to be the right fit at first hoever, it is my opinion that a for profit school will be hard to keep strict ethics when they are concerned about the bottom line versus the educational piece.

AC (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMarch 24, 2017
The company is going through several changes due to a recent sale, so expect lots of new training. Managers are lifers and act as such, now scared they may lose there jobs to outsourcing.

Disorganized

system challenges
