Welder (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MN – April 8, 2015
I really learned how to become a very skilled welder when working here. I got many welding certs for AWS,CWB and ASME section 9 with TIG 6G pipe, Flux Core 6G, MCAW, GMAW. Learned and followed very stringent codes for TIG and Flux Core welding and X-Rays were very common. Learned how to operate heavy duty cranes and move giant steet structures over 25 tons at a time. Operated in very confined spaces and in very high elevations.
Pay, Raises and Benefits great, Skills and productivity is rewarded. Organization great too.
Management was a little unreasonable at times, and was bankrupt for a couple of years but got out of it quickly. layoffs too.
Program Manager (Current Employee) – Oak Brook, IL – March 18, 2015
I very much enjoyed my time with Deltak / Wiley Corp as a Program Manager. They have been very good to me throughout my employment there. Per lack of work, I had been laid off with severence to look for a better opportunity. Working as a Program Manager, I had the opportunity to work on start up programs which consisted of building and coaching new teams to work successfully withing an enrollment structure.
Treated employees very well per team outings, and spared no expense with corporate outings and holiday parties.
No warning at all per the lay off and losing my job.

You are basically a telemarketer. You must call a minimum of 300 prospective students a week, and the lead base will have you calling the same people for over 2 years every week to make the 300 dials required. You do phone interviews and average from 3-5 a week, the rest of the time you dial the phone. Management doesn't care about you, you are just a number. Don't expect to get promoted based on production, I was a top producer and was told that I would never go any further because I didn't kiss butt. You have to play the game if you want promotions. They don't want you to find ways to improve anything either, that is a huge career buster. I enjoyed my co-workers. We tried to have fun and supported each other.
Read Blueprints and sourced drawings. Helped out at Switchboard for breaks and lunches. Checked inventory levels and ran reports. Determined Order levels for stock/bin items and sent ordering numbers to purchasing. I learned that as a group we could pull togather and put Deltak on top again and again. My co-workers were more like family.
I was hired to provide a quality assurance function to the software development cycle. However, there was little interest, and some resistance outside the immediate team I worked with. Company is struggling between remaining entrepeneurial and enterprise.
