Baker College is one private college.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Flint, MIJuly 21, 2015
Pros: Great health ins, paid vacations.
Cons: Promotions were not easy
I worked for Baker in Flint as a work-study in Career Services, before I as hired full-time. My typical day was based on position and depended on what quarter we were in at the time. I worked and did many different jobs over the years.

I work a lot with students, faculty and staff. I spent a lot of time answering phones, making files, filing, faxing, ordering supplies and sending out several hundreds of leads in my last position.

The most enjoyable part of my job was helping others, assisting as needed in any area.

Student Work Study (Current Employee), Cadillac, MIJuly 14, 2015
Pros: Financial aid
Cons: Limited work hours per week
I've developed various skills that are useful for other fields of interest. I believe Baker College to be a friendly environment I just need more work hours within a week or more pay. As a student work study I earn minimum wage and have limited hours I'm eligible to work within a given year, for those reasons I am currently looking for an eager business to welcome me onto another team.

Program Director (Former Employee), Allen Park MIApril 8, 2015
Baker College is a good place to work. The expectations can be overwhelming as even between quarters there are many mandatory meetings to attend. The pay does not always compensate our hard work.

Interior Design Student (Current Employee), Auburn Hills, and Clinton TownshipMarch 30, 2015

Great place to get an educationwith a lot of hands on training. I like that it has smaller classroom sizes and tutors if needed. They also offer campus housing.

Work Study (Former Employee), Charter Township of Clinton, MIMarch 6, 2015
Pros: learning firsthand
Cons: not being able to use all technology to its capacity
I started here with the intent of learning all I could. Coming to realize that it is impossible to learn everything. The co-workers, some wanted to be there and some didn't. I did't care because that just pushed me to learn more. The management fully worked with us on scheduling and were complete professionals.

Low pay but stable and relatively hassle free
Online - Instructor (Former Employee), Flint MIJanuary 8, 2015
Pros: flexible working times
Cons: low pay
The college has been online since 1995 and has the processes down to a science. You tend to be pretty much on your own online with well done curriculum, but not much opportunity to interface with other faculty (typical in online). Pay per class is low.

Great people but no flexibility
Admissions and Academic Advisor (Former Employee), Allen Park, MINovember 6, 2014
Loved working here, loved the people, loved helping students meet their goals and find their passions. I struggled with the long hours as a salary employee. Time off was difficult to come by and leaving early if needed was rarely an option. Once I had children, Baker College wasn't a great fit for me.

Not a good place to work due to no work-life balance. It's like you are constantly at work!
Nurse Faculty & Clinical Instructor (Current Employee), Charter Township of Clinton, MINovember 2, 2014
Very stressful and no work-life balance! I love teaching and it is my passion; however, they allow the students to disrespect their instructors.
