Student Contact Advisor (Former Employee), West Orange, NJ – February 26, 2013
This company was among a list of employers that I loved to serve. My workdays were filling, fast paced and most of all rewarding. My position as an adviser allowed me to assist former students of Lincoln with essential tools for financial stability and at the end of every successful interaction was a feeling that could not easily be explained which – more... kept me coming to work ready and eager for any challenge the day posed. – less
Very much a company that does not communicate change to its people!
Admissions Rep (Current Employee), NADC – March 27, 2011
Some how there are those that are out there that somehow believe that Lincolns enrollments will bounce back in 2012...Well lets take a look at this...As of right now the admissions reps of Lincoln feel as if the are being hosed...With there income being cut as much as 25% the seasoned Reps are looking elsewhere...Case in point at NADC alone 3 Reps quit – more... this last month with another 8 looking at leaving in the next few months. This schools reps are a collection of seasoned ex military people that have established themselves in their communities. Lincoln has now decided to move their pay adjustments back to July...Why because if the Reps are not satisfied then they will jump ship and possibly take their students with them...Soooo if they announce it in July then many/most of the students have already started. Enrollements are down because Lincoln has implemented changes in pay, application fees, and have not given their Reps any feedback on what is going on...Reps feel as if they are being paid a smaller salary compared to their comp (UTI, WyoTech) this was balanced with the old expense pay now they have removed that pay and not given any adjustment to pay. They pay .48 per mile which is not close to what the old expense plan was...On top of that it lags behind the Comp. They have increased application fee by $75. This eliminates many students from applying. Many of these students not only started in years past but finished. Lincoln preaches providing a student an avenue to their dreams...They have priced themselves out of the clientele that made them the school system they are...Now mix in the fact that their Reps are very unhappy and you have a recipe for disaster. This will not be a one year fix...If they hose the Reps expect this to affect the message the intesity and desire of the Reps and the reputation of the school. Hold on because this is going to be a mess for a while! – less
