Aloof, condescending, antagonistic, problematic...and that's the apex
Staff (non-faculty) (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 12, 2014
Doing what you're asked to do isn't good enough. Training is non-existent. Technology is little better than when the school first opened. Worse, depending on the mood and whim of senior management, you may experience humiliation in front of your peers. Real old school (literally and metaphorically) b.s. The culture and environment is as stale as a Depression-era lightbulb. Quite sad. Advice to Curse College job seekers: look elsewhere.
your own parking space.
backward, unhelpful, clique-ish upper management. no professional development/encouragement/advice. ever. ever.
Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 2, 2013
I would punch in procede to the lab and assist various students in the sciences of HVAC. I learned how to recover, vacuum, charge, and service light commercial refrigeration systems. I got along well with the instructors, students, and the boss. This job came with a lot of experience in regards to enhancing my troubleshooting skills, and communicating with people. This work was not hard, and what I enjoyed most was helping others understand this work by communicating with them in a language that they could understand.
a.a.s ecp student (Former Employee) – chicago il – November 9, 2012
I graduated in 2010 coyne never found me a job they never gave me information on job leads either.the a.a.s degree in ecp was a bad decision if anyone wants a certificate in electrical, do the diploma program not the degree program it doesn't prepare. You enough. With no experience in electrical and no help from career services all I have is debt and no apprenticeships open in chicago. If I could do it over I would get a diploma in the hvac program or went to some other school.
i got a certificate
if you have no experience in the, field getting a job is hard unless u kiss up hard enough to someone in career services
A solid privately owned instution with a long history of educating students in relevant trade skills.
Business Office Aid (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 9, 2012
A day at work involved being invested with a high level of trust. My position required me to have access to sensitive information regarding both the students and staff. My goal was to gain insight into the business structure and function of a small business and trades college. Coyne College has two campuses in Chicago both are located in the impressive downtown business district of the city. The school has also acquired in recent years a school in Atlanta, GA that trains in the field of court reporting. I had the opportunity to see the expenditures and also gained some insight into the amount of revenue that flows through this insitution. Management gave me extensive flexibility in executing my responsibility and I was allowed to work independently with little supervision. The school has a strong policy emphaszing a high level of professional behavior for both students and staff. The most difficult part of this job was knowing that as a student worker in the federally funded student worker program that the position would end with the completion of my schooling. The most enjoyable part of the job was the treatment of respect given as a colleage even as my status was also a student.
Coyne is a solid institution with over 100 years in the
business. I trust Coyne college and the staff of professionals
very much indeed. Being a graduate of two different fields at coyne and owning my own business. I will only hire Coyne college electrical graduates for my business.
