A challenging workplace
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Cuyahoga Falls, OHJuly 13, 2015
Pros: Easily accessible location, most holidays off, decent vacation time offered, 401k.
Cons: Lack of communication, poor planning, infrequent lunch breaks or coverage, too many smoke breaks allowed, no raises in 4 years.
The job requires a lot of multi-tasking and within short time periods. Most of the employees are pleasant and enjoyable to work with but a few are very difficult to work with. They don't work well in a team environment. Communication is a big part of working at a college, but the communication here is lacking. Stress levels are high. Recognition and respect are not easy to come by here. Even if you go above and beyond what is asked or required of you, nothing positive comes from it. There is great potential for this particular business, management just doesn't seem to know how to release it.

Very knowledgable and helpful
Library Assistant (Former Employee), Ravenna, OHJune 11, 2015
Pros: Free wifi and libary assistance
Cons: short hours
I am so very happy that I decided to go to Fortis College when I went back to school, and then to work at the Library resource center was an even bigger plus. I have learned a lot at Fortis in my school work and through my experiences as the LRC asst. The librarian at the LRC is very helpful and knowledgeable in resources that many students did not know they had access to. This is a job that the things I learned here I will be able to apply anywhere.

They will not give up on their students like their employees
Allied Health Program Director (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZJune 4, 2015
Pros: back up their employees
Cons: sometimes work a lot of hours
They did a fantastic job for student or employees. They also gave employees to advance into their education so that way they can advance in their departments. They would actually praise you at your meetings to let the entire school knows your accomplishment with the rest of your peers

Enjoyable yet challenging work environment
Registrar / Director of Student Services (Current Employee), Columbia, SCMay 13, 2015
Pros: staff, faculty
Cons: compensation
Fortis College has many great individuals who are here to educate and train our students to the best of their ability. I enjoy what I do for the students. Assisting our students with their futures is an awesome task I have been awarded. Assisting students with their schedules, books, grades, student services, files, recognizing their challenges, etc. has made me really want to reach more individuals who are willing to change their lives and make their experiences will worth any obstacle that is in their path. With the help of the staff and faculty Fortis has been an institution that is striving for success for our students.

I loved working here. Great work-life balance. Own office and not some cube sitting right next to someone else. The people here became more like family than business associates. Great health insurance. I can't say enough great things!

Financial aid advisor (Current Employee), Marietta, GAApril 3, 2015
As management I successfully performed supervisory duties of the office such as creating a solid schedule while approving time off requests from employees, implementing procedures for cashiers and baggers to be allotted breaks without weakening quality customer service, and at the end of the day prepared all earnings made for bank deposit.

wonderful work place
Medical Billing and Coding Instructor, part time (Former Employee), Columbia, SCFebruary 21, 2015
working for Fortis was a very enjoyable experience. The coworkers are pleasant. My supervisor was always there when I needed her, and a fantastic person.
The downside was not enough student enrollment for the next semester, so my classes were cancelled.

My job study assignment was a place in which I developed a new appreciation for educators. There was so much to learn from everyone in all the departments and they were more than willing to share their knowledge of the medical field.

Very hands on and productive school. I do not work at Fortis College, I am a current student. The classes are very challenging, and the teachers are always helpful. The school does provide the state exam for nursing students, it is included in student tuition.

Fortis has much work to do before it can compete with regional colleges.
Career Services Advisor (Current Employee), Centerville, OHJanuary 11, 2015
Fortis College has been trying to improve their image by bringing quality folks. The quality is there but management is very micro and constantly changing procedures. Basically, fixing something that isn't broken.

Accrediting body has approved the college's nursing program. They are expensive because it is a private entity; instructors are wonderful to work with so we can help the new graduates and previous graduate.

However, I cannot complain about the great group of folks I work with-- they are fantastic people with different skillset and each one of us complements the other. We have a great time working together and think outside the box to achieve results.

it was a wonderful experience. the most enjoyable part of this job was seeing the smiles on the kids faces when they could walk into the clean and well organized library and choose from books that were arranged according to their reading level.
