Great place to work
Financial Aid Counselor- Finance Department (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJuly 29, 2014
Pros: educational benefits & 401k
Cons: hours and distance
I have learned how academics and financial plays a part on the student world for succeeding in school. With managing over 200+ accounts and ensuring that student are financially okay to continue school plus balancing my A/R. If student is not fully financially okay we need to come up with possible plans to make it work for them. I love the challenge – more... and the job but the hardest part is being gone form 7 to 7 due to commuting. – less

Cool nice place to work
Librarian (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAJune 28, 2014
Pros: right at school
Cons: minimum wage
I work at my schools library and im responsible for making sure books are re shelved. I have to communicate and help other students.

I've learned how to operate a copier and printer.

The people i work with are smart interesting individuals who love the arts.

At noon is the most stressful, because a lot of students come in and try to print so the – more... printer get's jammed frequently.

I love helping other students with problems with their computer or issues with their work, it makes me feel needed and important. – less

Sales job
Admissions Representative (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJune 23, 2014
Pros: professionalism of co-workers
Cons: poor culture, lack of opportunity to innovate anything that was happening
I worked in admissions for the online division of one of EDMC's schools. It was the most bizarre work experience I've ever had. The people were great, even the direct managers, but I was never asked to use any skills I had coming in, I was only expected to use the most advanced sales techniques that they could teach me. The desperation for students – more... was apparent from day one of the initial (sales) training.

I aided in the admission process for a doctoral-level student for the most prestigious program that was offered. Unfortunately, the entrance essay for this student was written at a middle school level at best, with grammatical errors in every sentence. Of course, she was still admitted to the program (a decision which admissions officers had no say in). This is just one of many similar experiences I had here. I guess to sum it up, EDMC is for you if you are looking for work in sales, not education. – less

Very rough sales job, Its morally incorrect making someone go to school for that tuition
Admissions Representative (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJune 10, 2014
Pros: pay, co-workers
Cons: management, rumor mill, benefits are high, threats
I come in before 9am do manager reports (Im not a manager) have a morning meeting or "motivational" scream. I am told all day to get another app, get another student. I make over 600 calls a day and usually don't talk to anyone. I get screamed at by students on a daily basis. My director likes to intimidate and I honestly have not been happy in a long – more... time. The people I work with are awesome and the pay is ok. I think its morally wrong to charge 30000 dollars for an associates a year and over 72000 for a bachelors degree. You are preparing a student for failure, its wrong!!!! I would be o happy to get laid off. – less

Great Place
Admissions Representative (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJune 5, 2014
EDMC gets a lot of flack for the type of businesses they own & operate, but it is largely undeserved. I no longer work there, and have no reason to say anything nice other than it was actually a really great experience. My bosses were all really professional and approachable. They consistently made themselves available for feedback and any additional – more... help. The team I worked with was considered one the best in the company, and the people whom it was comprised of were some of the best people I've ever worked with. It was more of small family than anything. I'm not just saying that either. I've worked in Corporate America for the better part of a decade, and never had access to upper management, executives, or anyone else really that you wanted to interact with. It wasn't uncommon for a SVP to be walking around the office in the middle of the afternoon talking to junior level or entry level employees. I don't mean walking around and overshadowing your work either. I mean engaging in actual substantive conversations with their employees. That kind of access and interaction is key. I could go on about this place, but I won't bore you. I would like to say that my immediate boss was the best I ever had. She was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the job, and knew how to properly motivate her team without coming off as preachy. – less

Hard work does not pay
National Admissions Representative (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZJune 5, 2014
Pros: clean, free coffee
Cons: feels like walking on eggshells, scamming students, non equal managers
I was a employee thru a Job agency. From the beginning I was put to train with the call center supervisor that I really got the really from the fist time she meant me she didn't like me for some reason. She would meet with me like for a hour then threw me in to sitting with other people. Couple of days after I was at my own desk and on my own. The people – more... I sat with were nice they helped more than the Supervisors. They do help more of their "Favorites", after basically being on my own and fining for myself I was always top of my team ranking in high number of transfers. And from what my Job agency said that it was a temp to hire with a high potential to hire. I was there from Feb to end of May. I started to notice more and more people were being hired but they were not direct hires they were from other job agency also from my job agency. They do try to get you for every little thing. The whole time its like walking on eggshells and the Manager was like this sweet looking lady that is what she wasn't at all. One day you will see one of my co workers there with high numbers then one day they don't get enough transfers or dials then next day they are gone! Its a very stressful feeling. I was surprised I lasted as long as I did. I had a emergency with my mother that nearly died i asked for some time off and the manager insured me that it was ok and take as much time I needed. While in California with my mother holding on for dear life i checked in every day she never answered her phone I left messages and updated her. I made it back four days later and went to work. The next week as I am driving home I got a call from the agency saying that I was terminated because of attendance. I was in shock first of all I was told that it was ok to take time off, and I checked in she didn't even call back. Second, I worked my butt of and was the top of the team and when she wasn't there everyone else asked me for help or how to do things. I didn't try to fight for that job I had enough of it. Its a nice place don't get me wrong nice clean with a Cafe break room it really blinds you in the beginning. I didn't kiss butt to be her favorite because I worked hard. I was nice to her and tried my best. But they will get on you for every little thing. And if you are hired from a job agency I suggest that you look else where because they don't keep them long and your position is not at all secure and they can drop you like that. Plus if you Google research EDMC you will see that they are being Sued in the Federal Court and before they would have us say "Calling you on a recorded line" but now they don't because they are under investigation and don't record the calls no more. – less

Admissions Online Service Representative (Current Employee), GreentreeJune 4, 2014
Pros: amazing coworkers, long breaks, terrific benefits
Cons: no job stability, extremely stressful position
When first starting at EDMC Webchat, it was wonderful! However, as of recently we are all starting to realize that there is not very good job security within the company. A lot of people get laid off and it can come without a warning.

Inquiry Specialist (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJune 1, 2014
Pros: great location
Cons: pay to park
I enjoy coming to work, it has never been a "job" to me. I enjoy my coworkers, and the management is also great. Non drama environment, we all work as a team, and no job is more important than another. For a company to succeed, all must work together. We are all necessary connections and liasions.

Admission Assistant (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMay 24, 2014
Pros: the job work itself isn't bad
Cons: poor job security, quick to fire
My time at the company was short. They are quick to fire and blame others for mistakes. The job itself was enjoyable but supervisors will stab you in the back to save themselves.

Horrible Company- SCAM DO NOT WORK THERE
admissions (Former Employee), pittsburghMay 21, 2014
Pros: nice cowokers (not management)
Cons: horrible hours, not fair treatment across the floor, stressful enivroment
I worked for this company for 1 year and this has been the worst time of my entire life. They have you working 9-6 shift Monday through Friday and there is no headway if you had an emergency. First and foremost the management is about favoritism and not about equal opportunity! Secondly they do not treat their employee's with the respect of the hard – more... work they put in on a daily basis! They treat their favorites the best! Thirdly the idea of moving up in the company you better have a bachelors degree of higher because they always seem to change their mind on a daily basis and they are never up front with you! Fourth if you have a family it's very little balance, because this company is high stress on a daily basis! I really could only say that i enjoyed my coworkers the best because they were people who felt the same pressure and stress! – less

EDMC, a Struggling Empire
Benefits Analyst II (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAApril 27, 2014
When I first started working for EDMC, the company was flourishing and their employees could not have been any happier. Student enrollment was at its highest and their employees were moving up and compensated well. Nowadays, both, student enrollment and the number of employees at EDMC are down.

Good place to work at ,while going to school
Lab Assistant (Current Employee), Dallas, TXApril 4, 2014
Pros: free prints
Cons: old printers, part-time pay
A typical day at work is going to school and heading to the 3th floor to the print lab. It's a small sized room that is shared by tech guys and print people. I never really minded sharing; the tech guys were always nice to me. Has for my boss, I never did got to know him that well, but he did seem like a nice guy. As for my co-works after a while there – more... they became my friends and some what like a second family. The hardest part of the job was when the printers would acted up. Like, printing somethings in a different color, then what it need to be or trying to tell people that what you see on your computer isn't what your going to get. What I learned is how to change toner and never handle a problem alone. – less

Good people... bad decisions
Senior Admissions Rep /AR (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PaApril 3, 2014
Pros: salary, work environment
Cons: unethical behavior is rampant, medical benefits way too expensive
Great people to work with, Corporate level mismanagement creates turn over at VP level that prevents successful goal achievement at the ground level. Education Industry should not be goal orientated driven like a sales chop shop, but those who act in that environment and toss out Ethical behavior are rewarded.
