Disorganization Management has lack of knowledge of how to manage. Co-workers always large turn over. Hardest part was not knowing how the day will be due to everything disorganized. Lack of staff. Most enjoyable was helping students on their career journey.
Nursing instructor (Current Employee), Charlotte, NC – July 27, 2015
Pros: Great coworkers, able to positively impact the students, flexible environment
Cons: No lunch breaks, clocking in and out even though salaried, no support from administration, no vacation time, micro managed, lack of respect from some students
This place is a joke. Administration is not supportive of their staff. They make you pass students who they know will not pass their nursing boards. You are given 2 weeks of vacation but those 2 weeks – more... are used during the christmas holiday vacation. You have no choice, they will just use them, leaving you with nearly no vacation time during the rest of the year. There is no orientation for new faculty and no support from administration. The only time they speak to you is to criticize you. The students know all of this and don't work hard to get the work done. Why should they when they can just be pushed along? – less
Student Services Coordinator (Current Employee), Virginia Beach, VA – May 27, 2015
ECPI is a special kind of university with both employees and students from all walks of life. It is difficult to go one single day without learning something new from the people around you. Working at ECPI has been a fantastic learning experience, as well as a pleasure.
Admissions Advisor (Former Employee), Greenville, SC – May 11, 2015
Pros: 1 hour lunch, great training
Although for people with families it can be a strain on work /life balance because of the hours, the job it's self is very good. Great management and over all betterment of you through the work you will do with enrolling students.
Administrative Work for Financial Aid (Former Employee), Greenville, SC – April 30, 2015
It was a great opportunity to gain some on hand office experience and also to have that added to my resume. Even though it was short term due to the hours required by the University, it was exciting to work with the individuals that help with the process of getting me started. Really enjoyed the experience!
Administrator (Former Employee), Multiple Campus Locations – February 1, 2015
Pros: nothing that is positive counter balances the poisonous nature of the whole organization.
Read everything you can about the failing for-profit education industry, and the very ugly players in it, and then raise those problems to the 100th power, and you will have an idea of what it is like – more... to work at any campus of ECPI University.
The job culture is one of top-down, negative, management, whose only goal is to put money in their personal pockets. No consideration for employees, business and education ethics, or regulatory affairs that protect end users of education, both as students and consumers. No consideration for honesty.
Founder likely had great intentions 50 odd years ago, but those good intentions are long gone. – less
Federal Work Study (Former Employee), Newport News, VA – January 23, 2015
Being a student, I was able to work very flexible hours, while finishing my degree. I worked in the Financial aid department, where I loved the environment. I had my own work station, and I also had amazing coworkers that I shared the room with. Incredible people, whom I still keep in contact with to this day.
fast paced accelerated nursing program for students seeking to become practical nurses. Very demanding. Have observed many individuals progressing from poverty to middle income. Many further education to become RNs. Very demanding on students as well.
Student Worker (Current Employee), VA – January 3, 2015
Pros: very thorough and extencivlly hard working.
Cons: can be unorganized at first only.
I have worked in many positions and have gone to many schools. I have worked in one position for over 9 years of my life and will probably be with your company for many years. I have done well in my college deeds and am a true winner. I have also even patented my own device and own my own company.
