RDA-Instructor (Current Employee) – Riverside, CA – November 29, 2017
A typical day at work is structured and engaging. I learned how to instruct students. Management is very involved. The workplace culture is team oriented. The hardest part of the job is student attendance. The most enjoyable part of the job is student excitement.
Director (Former Employee) – California – September 14, 2017
Employees (lower level, management) come and go; highest turnover I have ever experienced which results in low employee satisfaction. It's all about politics and not the students, so much potential it's unfortunate they can't figure out how to hang on to good people, the people make the company.
Employee (Current Employee) – Florida – June 22, 2017
Focus and expectations change daily. No accountability at corporate level - disconnected from field. There is no onboarding or training for new hires. Results in very high turn-over at the local level. Turn-over is resulting in a very poor environment. Staff is not prepared for daily operations and needs. Company is consistently seeking top talent, but does not work at keeping the top talent. Promotional opportunities are minimal due to a lack of a developmental culture. The company operates in a grey area which is concerning due to the oversight of Ed and the accrediting bodies. Corporate officers are not aligned on vision; nor are they aligned on strategy. The company has a very entropic leadership style. Verticals continue to clash over what is right and what is wrong.
Wages are competitive and benefits are fine
Not a long term career. High level of churn and not training.
Worst work environment I have ever been exposed to
Admissions Representative (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 1, 2017
I have to say if you value yourself or your abilities DO NOT work here. Your success is controlled by the management and highly favored admission representative. It's all about numbers (which is ok in a for profit) but the expectations are ridiculous and unattainable. You are constantly threatened on a daily basis and be littled... no room for growth at all and they lie to employees as well as students...DO NOT waste your time or energy.. move on!
Why the Florida Board of nursing continues to look the other way is beyond me. It is obvious these types of programs will never become accredited and yet continue to remain open and take students' money. Nurses that work in these facilities as faculty or nursing directors cannot be blind. They are unethical and greedy and their licenses should be revoked.
These types of programs close down and open up with new names but same unethical standards.
Do not expect proper training. If you don't meet your quota you are viewed as worthless. They make you work overtime on a Saturday. Work life balance means nothing to this company. Do not even bother if you care at all about job security.
You will be working with miserable fellow advisors.
If you are an employee or student who not from a Caribbean island or Africa, get out now before you are fired or failed despite doing well academically! Lots of spite there! I worked with some of the most lazy, uninformed, and poor faculty ever in my life! Admissions sent us many students who were really not adequate for our program, but by God, they took their money anyway (as they were failing their courses). Management continually leapt to conclusions, criticised, punished, all without checking into the facts. Cannot say one good thing about this horrible campus & its management team. That it is still open is incredible.
Was a rough area to work at. Bad neighborhoods. But once you was inside campus it was great. Dean Ms.Cruz was wonderful. Every team member of school did their job great. Students was good. Lived the zero tolerance policy. Made our job easier.
admissions (Former Employee) – LAUDERDALE LAKES/MARGATE – August 17, 2015
The worst company to work for, it's all about the numbers. They mislead their students just to make money off of them. The dean (Ms.Cruz) is very rude, she's also an alcoholic. The director of admissions is very unprofessional and dishonest , will work you like a dog and will belittle you. Don't work or attend this school, they went bankruptcy 4 times already. They always have a mass lay off with no warning or service pay. They show too much favoritism. There is no advancement, benefits were great that's the only thing that's good about this company.
Customer Service Coordinator (Current Employee) – Lauderdale Lake, FL – August 11, 2015
Great co-workers but not so great management. Management is all about the numbers and no interest regarding the best interest of their employees. Decent amount of red tape and politics which is expected in a big company.
Productive place to work, however not a stable job
anonymous (Former Employee) – South Florida – May 23, 2015
I enjoyed working with all the employees, however there are massive lay offs often. Really all about numbers and employees are not valued. Communication with the Vice Presidents and CEO is not delivered in a timely manner unless they are going to do a lay off. I really enjoyed who I worked for however due to an unstable environment to work for its not a safe place to work because you dont know when they will let you go. Also when lay offs occur they do not pay severance. Benefits are not good as well.
Director of Admissions (Former Employee) – Huntington Park – May 7, 2015
I was the Director of Admissions and trust me when I say the management DOES NOT care about the students and their career aspirations. They tell the Director and admissions reps to "sell to the inventory" which means put the students in the programs where seats are available! I have worked at many universities and this so called "college" is a joke! $20,000 to obtain the same certification that one can get for under $4000 at Downey ROP! There are rat droppings everywhere at the HP campus...talk about employee safety! They will be on you desk when you get in for work and they do not care!
Horrible management, unrealistic expectation, constant micromanaging. O
current employee (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – April 9, 2015
Pros - Despite the toxic atmosphere, there are some very nice people working there.
Cons - Some of the business practices are unethical. The Admissions Dept is a revolving door. Procedures are unstructured and changes occur without employees being informed. Half of the employees never get a lunch break or have to take it near the end of their shift on a regular basis. Morale remains low and most of the workers are seeking other employment due to stress and exhaustion. The staff of most departments is berated daily regarding productivity, but there is little support or guidance.
Admissions Rep (Current Employee) – California – March 18, 2015
In an industry that is under so much fire from the government, they sure do seem to ignore a lot of regulations and best practices. The government has taken away any incentive to produce and reward reps, so the only motivation this school can give to its employees is to threaten their employment if they don't make certain numbers. Motivation by fear is never effective. Everyday you never know if you are going to have a job or not tomorrow. Employee retention is horrendous. All they care about is hitting their numbers
Horrible company...the only ones who advance are the ones that lie to all the poor and unaware students. All you have to do is research this company from former students and employees to see the truth. Teachers are overworked and underpaid....as well as many others. Other campuses that were in the top got shut down for good reason ;)
Some good employees
Greedy company.lazy higher ups, dirty industry, shady, employees safety is not important, numbers are
