Financial Aid Manager (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – September 19, 2015
We assist students while attending Globe University. Our focus is to ensure that all students are placed in their career prior to graduation. We consistently work with students to ensure their success with a great education as well as resume and interview training.
Faculty (Current Employee) – Woodbury, MN – July 30, 2014
I have enjoyed my time here at Globe. The faculty/staff/management has always been very helpful. Even after attending several graduations, I still get excited! I am so proud to see my students walk across that stage, what an honor it is for me, to be there to share in that amazing moment and journey!!
Student- Animal Care Duties (Former Employee) – Onalaska, WI – March 7, 2014
I enjoyed the educational benefits, but I really despise the price tag for it. It's not worth the money. It's going to be very difficult to pull ahead from this debt with the degree I chose to receive. A lot of hands on experience helps students learn another approach instead of just lectures. The faculty was always engaged and responsive. The hardest part about the education was the lack of financial help from the school, as if they could only do so much. The most enjoyable thing about the school was the atmosphere- that was usually friendly and inspiring.
College Admissions Representative (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – September 24, 2013
Days were very different, there was a lot of phone calls placed... sometimes upwards over 100. I learned a lot about time management. Management was decently fair but sometimes too micro-manage-y. Co-workers were the best, in all departments! The hardest part of the job was meeting enrollment goals, the most enjoyable part of the job was meeting with a student who belonged at our school and feeling confident that our school would help them reach their future career goals.
Fun place to work but with no adavncement available
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Moorhead, MN – March 7, 2013
Globe University is a great place to work. The atmosphere is fun and supportive. There are moral boosting activities for the students and faculty and staff. The only problem is that most of the faculty are adjuncts with quarter to quarter contracts. There is no guarantee that a contract will be extended for the next quarter. Also adjuncts get paid for class room time only and no benefits.
frequent free food, lots of management support
no benfits, pay only for classroom time, few chances to become full time
Motivating company with limited ability to make money
Director of Sales (promotion) (Current Employee) – Lakeville, MN – March 29, 2012
Currently as Director of Sales, I work with a team of 5 representatives who present to potential students the important factors when selecting a school. My leadership style is best defined by being a passionate and fearless leader who instills confidence and creativity within his employees. The biggest struggle I have with this position is there is little room for bonuses or commission. The most enjoyable part of my position is meeting with prospective students every day and motivating them to finish their education.
There shouldn't be ANY sort of bonuses or commission when working at a for-profit college! Incentivising is a strict no-no.

STUDENT (Former Employee) – Woodbury, MN – June 16, 2014
A typical day at school would be a lot of reading. But, the best part was my Term and Anatomy classes, very hands on and I get to see and work with animals in hand. I love my teachers, they're very knowledgeable as well as the students. When I've taken time off of school, I find it really hard due to the fact of missing it as well as my head in the books.
Instructor (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – March 17, 2012
While teaching the students was the best part, there is the underlying of culture of business. Private companies like this encourage students to go way over in debt for 'tuition,' yet provide little in the way of employment assistance. The students go into hock, work hard, and graduate with a relatively worthless piece of paper.
low stress, can be rewarding
your students are in way over their heads, financially
Associate Director of Admissions (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – March 26, 2013
Overall the staff is friendly and helpful. Corporate structure and middle to upper management make poor strategic decisions. The industry is under a lot of pressure and job security is a concern for many.
All things considered, I did enjoy my time there. Not a place anybody would be significantly proud to retire from.
Adjunct Instructor and Tutor (Current Employee) – Onalaska, WI – November 5, 2012
Globe University is a great educational institution that puts the students always first and is a career oriented College that makes sure students stay focused by the great support shown by staff and instructors.
