Unethical Company and Executive Leadership Team
School Director (Former Employee), New Haven, CTJuly 30, 2014
Cons: this place is not an enjoyable place to work, the culture is horrible.
Stay away from this company. The management style is to manage down and out. It is a revolving door.

Unfair workplace provides no training
Admissions Advisor (Former Employee), branford, ctJune 12, 2014
The only enjoyable part of this job was seeing how excited students were to start school. This "school" more like company only cares about the money. Education is the last thing that is on their minds. Working in the admissons department is like have a cover up job. Call 150 people a day and hey if that person never answers. Branford halls solution – more... is just to cll them over and over until they answer. How annoy to receive 15 phone calls in a row. I would consider that harassment, but its allowed by this company. Co-worker in this department are not friendly they come off as they are but truly they will do what ever they can to get the good leads and take your enrollments away from you that is why there is a new advisor at least every three months. I wouldn't recommend working here at all the provide NO training and expect you to know your job in and out from your first day! – less

Pros: very rewarding experience
Cons: contradictory policies and procedures/too many cooks in the kitchen
Very busy work environment where you always have more than enough work to do. The phone for my office rings off the hook due to the high demand of career assistance for graduates and current students.

Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Springfield, MANovember 18, 2013
I went to school for medical assisting in the Springfield campus. There are definitely people who don't take school as serious as others. So if you put in the hard work, you will succeed.

Massage Therapy Instructor (Former Employee), Windsor, CTOctober 18, 2013

Branford Hall Career Institute was a wonderful place to work. Instructors are chosen for their love for their career, and their willingness to share their craft. Students learn first hand what a career in massage therapy will entail.

Wonderful place to work. Unfortunately part time positions only and no sick day, holiday pay, or benefits. Most of all I miss the patient interactions
Instructor-Medical Assistant Program (Current Employee), Windsor, CTAugust 8, 2013
Pros: learning experiences. always challenged with new students.
Cons: part-time. no benefits, holiday pay or sick days.
I teach many different subjects to different size classes. It is a wonderful learning experience as well as a very fulfilling job. I learn new things with every class I manage. I get along well with my co-workers and love to help in other areas. The hardest part of my job is not knowing what schedule and how many hours I will have every six weeks as – more... the mods and student population varies. The most enjoyable part of my job is the student interaction and the ability to always learn new things. – less

Good management staff, but overall company did not care about employees
Externship Coordinator/Career Services Advisor (Former Employee), Albany, NYMay 13, 2013
Pros: rewarding with the students
Cons: high deductable healthcare, no job security
My typical day at work consisted of many cold calls to prospect new internship sites, putting together mailings, keeping reports to track interns, and helping any other member of my team with their work. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping the students. I loved building their resumes with them and teaching the workshops because our student – more... base had mostly never had the skills I was teaching. – less

Unethical and dishonest
Just an employee (Former Employee), Branford, CTApril 22, 2013
Pros: work week is monday-friday. no weekends
Cons: management and size of the campus
The functions of my job and the people I work with are enjoyable. There is never any downtime with the job which is actually nice because your day goes by so fast. When there are people that work within their jobs and they are good at it then the flow of the office is very nice. But the turnover in management happens so often that you generally end – more... up with people being pulled in 50 different directions rather then having any consistency. The entire set up leaves you feeling that you are always working harder, not smarter. The teachers are the only constant on the campus and they are a huge asset to the business.The hardest part of the job is getting settled and learning how management runs and then before you know it you have a new manager come in who generally doesn't know how things work. The most enjoyable part of the job is definitely the interaction with the majority of the students and the instructors. Overall the business could be amazing but they don't value their employees and they don't care about the education, they only care about the money. – less

Worst Job Ever!
Admissions Representative (Former Employee), Branford, CTJuly 23, 2012
Cons: benefits, pay, managers
A typical day of work involves you harassing people all day- you need to call the same people every day and try to convince them that they are a loser and need to return to school to better themselves. You telemarket all day long- very little student interaction. Once your student is enrolled they no longer want you to talk to them and only focus on – more... acquiring new students. There was really nothing enjoyable about this job. The pay is terrible and what they dont tell you is that your base salary includes the overtime your forced to do- every other Saturday. They lie and tell you that you'll receive a bonus for each student you enroll who graduates- well I never saw a penny. The turn over is VERY high- but in the interview they will tell you that they are growing rapidly. You also need to enroll a min. of 5 students a week to keep your job although they want you to shoot for 10. Do yourself a favor and don't bother with this company- a huge waste of time, and they do not value their employees at all regardless of what your position is. – less

Excellent place for students, workplace average
Staff (Former Employee), Albany, NYApril 23, 2012
During my employment I really enjoyed my interaction with the students and most of the staff within the school. In employee relations, the parent company was only average in meeting my expectations and the management was biased in many ways.
