Kaplan was a great place to work. I received my Bachelor Degree while working for them. I was able to attend many trainings in order to do my job better. The team environment was great. Great leadership. Fun place to work overall
Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 9, 2017
UEI has the distincion of maintaining the best medical program in San Diego county. Their computer technician program did not do so well, but that was not due to a lack of support. Their main competitor was less than 2 blocks away!
Online Instructor (Former Employee) – online – August 9, 2017
Enrollment is dropping, so it is very difficult to get classes. There is quite a bit of work involved in teaching here compared to other online universities. It has just been bought Purdue University, so hopefully good changes are coming.
Needs a retooling .. Managers out of touch with Employees
Admissions Advisor (Current Employee) – Ft. Lauderdale, FL – August 5, 2017
I love the work, helping students find a program.. excellent online platform.. fun to work with students. Management is a big group of friends who are out of touch with employees and the current PE system is unrealistic for most and creates a culture of ruling by fear/losing your job.
Associate Director of Admissions (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – August 3, 2017
Horrible environment. Management believed in instilling fear in the employees. Layoffs a few times of year, so no job security. Work life balance is not so good either...only if you move to the top opportunities of working from hom.
Online Adjunct Professor (Former Employee) – online – August 2, 2017
It is very difficult to keep up the pace with Kaplan University when emergencies arise. There are no substitutes and rules your life. The job needs more flexibility. There is a significant amount of flexibility for the students, but not the professors.
salaries never seem to increase and you cannot rely on classes being offered.
Use Microsoft Office Suite for data entry (Current Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – July 24, 2017
Upon arriving in the mornings, I would log into a PC, find and post jobs to job board for students, would help director o career services with updating bulletin boards of current events, and at times I would call current students on reminders such as approaching deadlines to retrieve their caps and gowns for graduation.
Certified Tutor (Former Employee) – Council Bluffs, IA – July 22, 2017
I became a tutor because i wanted others to learn and obtain the information they needed to improve their future. I helped in many different aspects of the company including organizing events and conducting the online orientation I enjoyed doing that type of work
Started off as a Student , graduated in the Medical Assistant Program which landed me a job with the company, and I love helping people and meeting new students along the way, I don't have any small children so the journey was a learning process for me and this was a great Company to work for. A typical day was challenging day each and every minute helping others, making people smile and handling the business.
Education Advisor (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 19, 2017
Great people in advising. There was immense pressure to keep students at all costs. When I worked at Kaplan they were a for profit. They are now owned by Purdue University. Not sure what the future holds
