Excellent working environment
Financial Assistance Specialist (Current Employee), Pottsville, PAAugust 2, 2014
In Financial Assistance, we are the financial support staff to our schools. In a typical day, I would provide customer service to staff and students, package student's financial aid, and process student's FAFSA applications. My co-workers are great and we make an excellent team. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping student's achieve their future – more... educational goals. – less

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Pottsville, PAApril 9, 2014
Pros: coordinating meetings for regional directors
Cons: sad medical benefits
Daily duties shifted from day to day, keeping the job from becoming routine.
Management was always supportive and helpful. Sometimes dealing with upset customers was difficult not to take as personal, since the company placed a high value on top shelf customer service. At the end of the day, having the ability to resolve an issue for a student was always – more... the most rewarding. – less

Educator (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZJuly 24, 2013
A typical for me starts with my students on the floor or in class. I start by asking how there evening was, so that they become ingaged. I learned that our students try very hard to please there educators. Management can be hard to undersatnd, but overal I think there fair.
I love my co-workers and we support one another through a lot.
Not being albe – more... to do more for the students, as some of them have real life situations that we can help with. The most enjoyable part is the student when they learn something new, or when there happy because something you should them worked out. – less

Over all, my experince at empire was extremly rewarding. I learned alot of valuable information.
Cosmetology Instructor (Former Employee), Boston, MAJune 19, 2013
Arrive 30 minutes before class starts. Make sure class is safe and clean. Prepare supplies needed for daily, scheduled lesson. I learned the inner mechanics of cosmetology. Management can sometimes be challenging, but at the end of the day I was responsible for the outcome of every situation. When it comes to co-workers, some are easy to work with and – more... some are not, but I believe as long as all relationships are kept professional, you can avoid any personal problems. Then hardest part of the job was seeing a student in crises and not being able to help more. Helping people to achieve success trough all kinds of struggles. – less

Teaching students the art of Cosmetology, both technical and theory.
My experience at Empire was the best learning and teachng experience I could have had. The management and co-workers were very supportive and guided me through each catagory and process necessary to become a successful teacher.

The hardest part was leaving my co-workers, however, – more... I had an opportunity for advancement.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the students and the Salon Clinic – less

Fast paced environment, with efficient training, and minimal support from immediate supervisor.
Admissions/ Career Planning Counselor (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAOctober 12, 2012
Pros: meeting a variety of people, seeing them through their decisions to change their lives.
Cons: no true lunches due to lack of training for new management.
A typical day at work consisted of conducting admissions interviews, financial aid and enrollment appointments in a fast past environment.
I've learned that the quality and quantity of my work seems to increase with the level of demand within the workplace. I truly exhibited team work on more levels than I could have ever imagined. The co-workers were – more... awesome! The hardest part of the job was becoming somewhat of a trainer to undertrained new management to the extent that my work schedule began to minimize the time I had for my family. The most enjoyable part of the job was having the tools and ability to help people truly commit to changing their lives. – less

You have to be a people person with lots of patience. Multitasking is an understated qualification for this job. The group of colleagues were very helpful with new comers & gave great assistance. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know the students. The hardest part was maintaining the respect of the students... who were either you age – more... or sometimes older. – less
