Filing file chronologically, assisting students with equipment as in laptops, i help with faxing papers making copies interviewing future students for financial aid. I work alone with little or no supervision. What i enjoy the most is being able to get into the motion of doing administrative work.
Work Study Student (Former Employee) – Ravanna, ohio – September 14, 2016
All I can say is going back to school at the age of 44 at the time was the best thing next to my kids I have ever done. The staff there is great always there for the students and you are like family there, Loved to learn and didn't know I had that in me. I would go to school for a 4 hour class and then work for 4 hours and they always made you feel like you are part of a job that just gives back so much more.
Maintenance (Current Employee) – Wayne, NJ – August 22, 2016
Working at Fortis is great. The co-workers are friendly and great to talk to. The work keeps me productive all day. The hardest part of my job would have to be having a lot to do in such little time. Not always but some days are busier then others.
Fortis was an exciting and rewarding place to work. I've enjoyed working with the adult students and staff. A typical day at work consisted of lesson planning, teaching skills, locating new externship sites and student placement.
Fortis was a great place to work until recent unexpected changes occurred affecting the job security of the education department.
Instructor (Current Employee) – Towson, MD – May 12, 2016
Originally the job was very fun and everyone got along.Benefits were standard and the health insurance is great but pricey. School events were very fun and enjoyable. But recently things have changed drastically. There are divided groups in departments, budget cuts, payroll decreases (not dollar wise, but hour wise). Full-time employees are now forced into voluntary part-time positions. Yes FORCED into VOLUNTARY part-time positions which leaves a lot of families with an unplanned financial hardship and careers down the tubes.
Co-Workers and student success stories
Abrupt financial changes and removing our benefits.

Program Director (Current Employee) – Smyrna, GA – April 13, 2016
As any proprietary school there are certain requirements for the facilitator / instructor that makes the job a little bit stressful.
In general, this is a good company to work for. The administrative personnel is approachable and great to work with. The culture among employees is inviting and allows for growth and professional development.
Administrative Assistant & Coordinator (Former Employee) – Smyrna, GA – April 9, 2016
I supported my academic career by working in fields such as: recruiting, marketing/sales, customer service, medical records, file clerk/mail room attendant, childcare and administrative & payroll assistant positions. All of my previous work experience has enhanced my formal education; I’ve also had the opportunity to lead several projects allowing me to hone my leadership skills while working cohesively with other team members, and I would appreciate the opportunity to do the same for your organization.
Teacher - Business & Computer Applications (Former Employee) – Orange Park, FL 32073 – March 22, 2016
A typical day was from 8:30 am to 10:30 pm since I worked Day and Evening Sessions. Although it was long days it was very rewarding to see how students progressed every day. I learned that I could learn from my students since the diversity range in culture was very extensive. Our Management personnel was very structured, but fair to the staff. I had a great set of Co-Workers always willing to help when needed. Perhaps the hardest part of the job was when the Campus announce its closing. the most enjoyable part of the job was seeing our student graduate and move on to great full-filling jobs.
