Director of Student Finance (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – March 10, 2017
I used to love working at Carrington until just recently they decided to eliminate more than 3 key management positions resulting to over 100 people losing their job. Now there is no management support at the campus level, leaving it up to the staff to take on additional duties that is beyond their capability. Some staff members are having to work 12 hour days just to meet the needs of the students. Many changes are being conducted on a daily basis as well. One day your advised to do this and the very next day your told something else. This makes the work environment stressful and unproductive.
If you are seeking employment with Carrington my suggestion is to wait at least 6-8 months to allow the company to iron out their wrinkles because I dont think they understood the impact of eliminating the role of Director of FA, CS, and Executive Director. I truly hope they overcome their financial and operational challenge.
Poor decision making skills, company is not doing good financially
Medical Assisting Instructor, Highly (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – March 10, 2017
Horrible company to many things wrong with management. Management is incompetent and there is a lot of turnover. The students are great but the faculty are unprepared. There is no culture. Going to work there was like pulling a tooth with no drugs.
Family oriented establishment trying to help student's impact the medical community in a great way

Fast paced environment utilizing multiple different skill sets to impact the campus, community as well as overall student growth. Helped me realize I have a passion for helping others. Working for Carrington College has helped me grow not only as a professional but as a person as well. I enjoy making a difference whether that was impacting the students or the community, I want to help people in one form or another.
Medical Billing and Coding Instructor (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – January 28, 2017
Typically, I would prepare the days topic/lecture. I would give my students formal instruction, then we would tie it together with real live experiences of the students and my own life experiences. The hardest part of my job was trying to motivate students to come everyday. Workplace culture was very supportive and friendly. The most enjoyable part of my job started when my students came in. I learned that I am very funny and that its ok to control an environment.
Lots of food
if hired part time, it is hard to become a full time employee
Federal Work Study (Former Employee) – Reno, NV – December 9, 2016
I was a student while working at the school and they were very willing to make my hours work around school. They were also very flexible with my hours if I needed a day off or if I was going to be late.

Receptionist Duties (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – December 7, 2016
Typical work day would involve answering phones, keeping up with any scheduled appointments and filing. Over all the job was pretty enjoyable. The hardest part in the beginning was time management and multi tasking but I eventually managed to create a system that worked for me.

Dental Hygiene Department Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – September 15, 2016
Overall my department is great. Their pay is horrible. I do a lot and they keep increasing my workload yet they don't pay more. We have a new employee and we have the same position and they are making more than me. It's unfair and I have to help train them. I don't know if it's because I'm young or because she knew someone when she got hired. All I know is that I exceed my reviews and deserve to get a fair compensation for what I do.
