Military Financial Aid Officer (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – December 1, 2014
A typical work day would include receiving a list of students to packaging, correct over awards/under awards,balance the account or credit balances. Most of the time your on a special project if your one of the top employees.Working at Kaplan was a great experience I learned a lot about Financial Aid and how Military benefits work. Management was okay, as usual if you don't do your work and messing around then they will be on your back. Management understands that life happens and are willing to a certain extent work with you. there is no advancement opportunity, they prefer quantity over quality. I didn't find the job hard, there were challenging moments but nothing too hard to overcome. The most enjoyable part was helping students, and becoming a family with employees.
Management, great job experience, challenging opportunites
No advancement available, prefers quantity over quality
Pre-Health Graduate Faculty (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 5, 2012
As an MCAT, PCAT, DAT, OAT, and GRE teacher for Kaplan for a few years, I've pretty much seen or heard it all. The hourly pay rate was amazing. Unsurprisingly there were no benefits to speak (the norm for a part time position). Despite Kaplan being as large as it is, it is incredibly disorganized and is currently undergoing a major shake-up in terms of its management and its operations. One key thing to note, part time employees are essentially contract employees. You have virtually no control over the number of hours you can work, and there is no guarantee that once one class is over that you will be assigned to another. There is zero job security and is basically impossible to know what your next paycheck will be. Not for those who need a steady income stream.
Military Admissions Advisor (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – November 6, 2012
Stressful environment that was ever-changing. Goals were out of balance with reasonable expectations for the product, price, time frame, and quality of leads provided to most advisors. Training was frequent and adequate. Co-workers were great people. Management sometimes lacked the ability to understand the challenges faced by the employees. The best part of the job was knowing that you were helping others to pursue their education which could lead to a better future. At the end of the day you were satisfied with your efforts to help others realize their educational dream by giving them the best information so that they could make the right decision.
competitive compensation and great benefits package
stressful environment with little control over personal results
