Financial Aid Officer (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 4, 2018
Title says it all. Was ok to get some light experience and free degree but it was for all intents and purposes a go nowhere environment. Pay rates versus skills required to perform certain jobs do not match industry standards.
Veterans Affairs (VA) Application Specialist (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – November 24, 2017
Poor management and a very unhealthy work environment. We were constantly put on mandatory overtime that would span for months at a time. Management was combative and unwilling to listen to personal concerns. Employee burnout was constant.
Non-Federal Resources Financial Aid Officer I (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – November 7, 2017
i learned how to process student grants on a state level as well as learned in and outs about financial aid which helped me perform functions of the job such as award students money or deny those who did not meet certain criteria
Great Workplace, Poor Executive Management caused collapse
Tribal Enrollment Specialist (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – October 11, 2017
Was a great company to work for. Job was sales, but was very enjoyable and engaging environment. Workplace culture was very relaxed and metric goals were attainable. Company suffered from poor executive management which lead to buyout and heavy layoffs.
Campus Operations Coordinator (Current Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – October 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.
Enrollment Advisor (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – September 26, 2017
There is no growth or room for advancement. The schedule changes and required a bid. There has been several layoffs and locations closing. There is no sense of longevity or peolle retiring from the job.
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.
DevOps Engineer (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – July 13, 2017
Sincerely, from the moment you book all the way through to leaving the building.... the service, advice, expertise and friendliness rates off the chart! It's not just a one off either .... it is consistently brilliant every time I go !!!
Executive Director (Former Employee) – Brooklyn Center, MN – July 11, 2017
Management at Apollo has changed drastically over the years. The founder was a pioneer and innovator. He was a true visionary. The company has seen many changes including the downsizing of the organization.
General Office Clerk (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 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.
Enrollment Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 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.
