Staff (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – October 29, 2017
The corporation does a much better job focusing on recruitment now than it did when a physical campus was in Pittsburgh. If they would have focused more, the campus would still be open and serving students online and onsite.
Dedicated, professional staff, great students, and highly trained professors
One size fits all corporate model, never took into account specific marketing or student needs of individual campuses
Working as a tutor requires many different skills. First, you have to be able to handle people at all times in many different moods. Tutoring is a specialty that can only be done by certain people. You have to learn to use different teaching skills. Management only makes the schedules and doesn't interfere with your job. The other tutors around you most likely have the same mindset you do making teamwork easy. Using what you have learned in school is the key to being a good tutor. Knowing how much you have helped someone at the end of the day is the best part of showing up for work.

My work at DeVry University is how I choose to give back to my community. I am very good at imparting knowledge and helping others achieve their goals by completing the degree. DeVry however is a part -time opportunity. They only have nights classes and I work there one or two nights a week.
Student Support Advisor (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – October 16, 2017
Poor communication from upper management. Management never gives new initiatives a chance to work before switching gears - yet again. Student centric scheduling model does not work. Students are not a priority, neither are lower level employees.

Std.Finance Consultant.| Asst. Dir.of Std. Finance (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – October 2, 2017
Everyone helping each other. If someone had an emergency someone else would fill in for that person. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping student reach their educational/financial aid goals. I learned to listen to people for their needs not to jump to a conclusion. The most challenging time was preparing for the three semesters each year.
