Great if your not getting laid off...
Admissions Representative (Current Employee), Addison, ILJuly 28, 2015
Pros: Pay, Benefits, Work-Life Balance
Cons: Pressured to get sales, Laid off so stability is an issue
Basic duties: Call, text, and email pending prospect students. Once you have them on the phone you must complete an interview around 45 minutes total and get them to apply. Then you have to follow up for documents and testing. Overall its was like a telemarketing setup call people multiple times a day, and expected to get people to apply. Managers will listen to your calls and give you feed back or scold you for doing something incorrectly so they are listening constantly. Typically set hours, paid bi-weekly, good benefits, decent 401K, and great work life balance - 2 weeks off with option to purchase another week when enrollment is available. Moving up in the company seems difficult as you have to be a top performer and network quite a bit but they are there to help. The people that work there are really nice but I know with admissions at a low they are tending to be more aggressive. Only regret was being laid off... I was only there 6 months...

GRADUATE ADMISSIONS ADVISOR (Former Employee), Addison, ILJuly 19, 2015
This was the worse job I ever had in my life. This job stole my happiness for over 2 years. This is a starter job or a job when you can't find anything better. Run! Do not waste your life at DeVry.

Good Company Culture - Tough Industry.
Admissions Advisor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 18, 2015
Pros: Flexible scheduling. Great environment
Cons: Industry is down, so job security isn't as high as it used to be.
Compared to other companies, DeVry is a great place to work. Management is supportive, and they do try to develop their talent. Education is a tough industry though, so they have had to cut back some of their resources and some support departments are overworked.

Great learning environment and work atmoshere
IT Help Desk Technician (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVJuly 13, 2015
Pros: fun and easy environment
Cons: the pay is not that good
It is a great job where you learn a lot and the staff are just a great group of people just like a family environment. It is always a challenge when a new session starts because you have to enroll all the students in active directory and setting them up for classes but rewarding when helping them all succeed in their goals.

I enjoy completing projects, analyzing schedules and data logs, and tutoring students.
Lead Tutor (Current Employee), Fort Washington, PaJuly 12, 2015
Pros: Flexible schedule, pleasant work environment.
Cons: Unable to work more than 20 hours a week, no healthcare.
A very nice place to work. Advancement was available to me after graduating. I really enjoy working as a team with the other tutors and assisting my boss with projects and tasks. Getting the chance to not only tutor in the Academic Support Center, but also work in Student Central, and the Library has helped me gain experience in the different aspects of data entry and have first-hand experience of how different departments of a company are run.
