Medical Assistant (MA) Degree (Current Employee), clearwater, fl – May 7, 2013
I have a long list of work history, must not even the least bit relavant. the only reason I went to this school was for help finding a job, and yes i got the training i needed. but i still need help finding a job!!!!!!!

My job consist of dialing between 200-400 dials a day within a 6 hour period. Speaking with between 100-300 prospects answering questions and setting appointments for Administration. I learned to work in close quarters. The hardest part of my job is to always please my supervisor even when they are having a bad day. I enjoy working with the staff on – more... my team. – less
Setup user account, setup desktop, trouble shoot end user daily issues help and maintained servers and assisted other network admin's at different campuses. Learn how to work with other co-workers to get the job done in a timely manner. Configuration of server setup with current policies and procedures. Overall working with co-workers with great had – more... a fun. – less
A normal work day for me is getting off my first job at 5pm, and head to work. I get there roughly at 6pm and start dialing. Goal is to set 3 appointments a night, but due the high call volume and the number of times a prospect is called in one day that presents a challenge. typical 6 hours of calling and then I get off at 11pm Monday thru Thursday.
Director (Former Employee), Midwestern usa – February 10, 2013
Pros: decent pay
Cons: everything else
I served in a director level before and after the merge with Florida career college FCC. This company should be avoided unless you have no other options. Anthem edu was under good direction just before the management change. It is now run in a fear management style. Work hours are expected to be 8-8 m-r 9-5 f and s.
The work hours don't bother most – more... people. But the constant fear of being terminated for no cause or having to term people for no cause is unjust. The turn over rates are insane. I was hireing and fireing more people in one year than all other years combined in a 15 year edu career. The average life of a rep, Doa, adoa is about 30-45 days. Directors rarely last longer that 1.5 years. The education staff can largely be unaware, save noticing large turnover.
There is a level fear that is instilled from the c level down that borders on hostile. I have enjoyed all other education corporations that I have worked for. This was with out a doubt the worst and most painful time in an otherwise successful and bright career.
Now that I have moved on to a new school, I have returned to a job and career that I enjoy. I wish a fast exit for all of the people I brought in to this organization. – less
Fun events were always going on for students and staff on campus.
Career Service Advisor, IT and Business Division (Former Employee), West Palm Beach, FL – January 24, 2013
Pros: the fulfillment of seeing others succeed at their goals and dreams, by the placement of graduates with gainful employment matching their education.
Cons: the politics of it all. lack of integrity and honesty within some ranks.
A typical day at work clocked in review messages and make resposes. Make calls to get leads on employment for IT and Business graduates. Brief meet & greet with potential students.Facilitate professional development workshops with students. Career advisments. Plan job fairs and attend job fairs.Team meetings. The hardest part of the job was carving – more... out employment for upcoming or past graduates that permanent challenges in gaining employment. The most enjoyable was seeing the joy and happiness a job bought to a graduate, – less
I was happy to be employed and enjoyed the environment.

If you have integrity do not work for this company
Admissions Representative (Former Employee), Parsippany – January 5, 2013
Pros: employment until you find something better
Cons: no job security and you are only as good as your last enrollment
This place is unethical. It is very sales oriented and you show up for work everyday wondering if your going to loose your job. I was with the company for 5months and I was the longest employed admission representative there. Every hour on the hour we had to write the number of appointments and calls we have made. They were constantly peeking into your – more... office asking where your appointments are and why didn't they show. I was told during training that I am here to sell dreams. What about the students? I was forced to enroll a student who spoke little English, his uncle was interpreting everything for him and we told him we will hire a translator. Lies, all lies just to get an enrollment. If you have integrity run away from this place. If you want to sell your soul to the devil great place to work. – less
Admissions Rep (Former Employee), Florida – January 4, 2013
Florida Career college is an institute of so- called higher learning designed to exploit the likes of students who wouldn't be accepted to traditional college's or institutions. Florida career college has under developed curriculum and programs that are excessively over priced and not current.
The schools sole purpose is to recruit students from lower – more... income and social structures and sell them a pipe dream of success to basically rob them for financial aid funded by the US department of education. Their advisors are trained to use manipulation and deception to paint a unrealistic picture of success based off the students current struggles and failures. This is highly unethical and dangerous. The advisors are also under extreme pressure from management to either enroll students or be fired. Management will even go as far as to threaten advisors personally and financially for not bringing students in. Florida Career college also trains it's staff to do whatever they can to get a minimum of 4 days out of their students so at least the financial aid payment is received from the US Dept. of Education.
It is highly immoral and unethical to recruit students who will not benefit from these programs or who don't have the ability to complete these programs all for financial gain for the institution. There is so much pressure applied to these advisors that they will do and say almost anything to enroll students. So before you consider attending FCC you might want to travel down to your local community college for half the cost and twice the accreditation and receive actual college credits towards a degree that can actually benefit you.
So remember if you go in to a FCC campus and you hear the advisor showing you sympathy trying to constantly remind you of all of your pain and struggles that they have been trained to make you feel inferior to simply get your MONEY. – less
My experience with Florida Career College has been very interesting thus far. I communicate with different types of people all aspiring to be something great in life. I learned to be consistant and maintain a positive atitude with the different types of personalities I deal with daily. My co-workers were all very friendly and humble individuals willing – more... to help eachother whenever anyone was in need of help. The hardest part about the job is getting people to come out for tours of the college. Some are usually not interested or only signed up just because. What I enjoyed most about Florida career was my supervisors and co-workers who all helped make the job interesting and and easy to adapt to. – less
