IT Student Worker (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – February 22, 2017
I worked as a student worker so my role was a little different. It was a part time job, almost like and internship. That's why I gave low ratings to Benefits and Job Security. I really don't have a way to grade those points since I did not receive these perks.
Great environment. Everyone has a positive attitude.
Student Support Advisor (Current Employee) – Colton, CA – February 21, 2017
DeVry University provides great training to and promotes self-development with employees. Managers are great, I consider myself very fortunate to work with amazing leaders who taught me great things and guided me to grow into the professional I am today.
Information Technician (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – February 18, 2017
I loved working for DeVry. My supervisors were always willing to help out and to teach me new ways of thinking and solving problems. It's because of them I have become the out of box thinker, I am today.

They are a good bunch of people who look to the future and bring new technology on board to modernize education. With their tools, resources, and training, they help their staff be the best.
competitive salary, good working environment, self regulation
The schedule is difficult to keep track of, the number of classes makes it difficult to count on for pay purposes.

IT helpdesk support (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – January 28, 2017
A typical day work be to check all classrooms' computers, peripheral devices, printers and projectors to make sure that they were fully functional for the start of the day. There was a few classrooms with smart boards and engineering equipment such as multimeters, oscilloscopes, function generators, etc. that i had to make sure was full operational as well. From there i would be at the helpdesk taking calls or walk ins, and troubleshooting the issues. I would also be review and doing tickets that would be in the queue. I learned a lot of customer services there, also i learn some networking and different troubleshooting skills. Management was great, and willing to teach. I was a relaxed workplace culture that helped each other to get the job done. Hardest part of the job was troubleshoot remote users with poor connectivity. Most enjoyable part of the job was the team i worked with.
Federal Work Study/IT Help Desk (Former Employee) – Sherman Oaks, CA – January 27, 2017
The Federal Work Study is a good job for a student who is looking for some work while completing school. The IT help desk gave me experience in ticket systems, troubleshooting, and helping with minor tech related issues.
Productive and fun place to work at school where we could also study for our classes
Student Librarian (Former Employee) – Addison, IL – January 27, 2017
A typical day at work included manning the first or second floor reference desk, helping students with technical or research questions, and ensuring library resources functioned properly to be readily available to the students. All employees working this position were students, and time not attending to specific work/student needs was spent studying or getting classwork done. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to have the flexibility of work/school and making your own hours with no minimum. The hardest part was enduring the late hours at the library when no one was present. Management was great at listening to feedback and responding to it within a timely manner.
Great management and flexibility of hours
Can't continue working this position after gradutating
STUDENT SUPPORT ADVISOR (Current Employee) – Fremont, CA – January 27, 2017
Would not recommend this employer; management is completely detached and does not pay attention to employees' needs. Management's main focus is on enrollment numbers and not on students or employees. No opportunities for a career growth. Veteran professionals are leaving due to being treated poorly.
Work/time balance; detached management; low moral; late shifts, weekend work; no room for professional growth
I.T. Help Desk Federal Work Study (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – January 9, 2017
My time spent with this company really allowed me to focus on learning new and interesting methods in troubleshooting and maintaining both machine hardware and software, while allowing me to study and attend college courses.
Flexible work schedule, friendly atmosphere, learn as you work
Faculty Assistant (Former Employee) – North Brunswick, NJ – January 3, 2017
Being a faculty assistant at DeVry University was very important to me. Not only did I help students with networking assignments and projects, but I helped myself learn things that I was having trouble with through repetition and teaching other students. Open lab hours allowed me to assist students with hands-on labs, packet tracer assignments, and weekly networking projects. During class hours, I helped the professor get around to students that had any questions that needed to be answered. The other tutors that I was working with knew what they were doing to so it made it easy for me to get along with them.
