Registrar Assistant (Student Worker) (Former Employee) – Flushing, NY 11354 – May 31, 2016
My superior and one of financial aid specialists sent me birthday cake and gift cards. We went to eat hot pot together before my graduate date. I have tried many activities that I have never tried. Co-workers are very friendly. I think the hardest part of the job is check class room for next semester availability. The most enjoyable part of the job is make phone call to students.
Student Success Advisor (Former Employee) – Flushing, NY – February 13, 2016
There is no way to move up in this company although upper heads will sell you dreams that you can move up. This is a good place to start your career and then move on. The company is 90% Asians and they seem to be the only ones advancing. The upper heads have no loyalty to anyone. They will fire you the minute you make one mistake even if you have been there for 10-15 years.
Great students, fun class, unprofessional management
ESL Instructor, English Teacher (Former Employee) – Flushing, NY – December 3, 2015
Provost is unprofessional, sneaky and dishonest particularly when it comes to hiring practices. Forced out a very popular and experienced teacher who had worked there for years, just because he was older. Protects her favorites who show up to teach classes an hour and a quarter after they begin.
Supervisor at Flushing branch seems to have a chip on their shoulder and will make trouble for any instructor with more experience than them. If students like your class, supervisor responds by cutting your hours. This school will give diplomas and graduate any paying customer so teachers are pressured and bullied into passing students for College English class when they use dictionaries in exams and write essays partially in a language other than English. It seems to be the result of some kind of ATB (Ability to Benefit) scam and seriously undermines the academic integrity of the school.
Students are great, try hard, want to improve and ask for your help in an effort to use correct English as they pursue academic and professional goals, but staff do not support the teachers subject them to a lot of paperwork and grading exams only to then ignore the instructor's recommendations and use outdated tests that do not reflect the material covered in class.
This could be a great school, but it is run by people who are incompetent and unqualified and the students suffer. Those charged with the responsibility to hire English teachers have poor communication skills in written English. Low standards of academic integrity and management turns a blind eye to cheating. Students wouldmore... get a far better education if they stayed in China.less
Students respectful, work hard, respond well to lessons
Managers don't show up to classes on time, don't follow lesson plans, play favorites

Student Aide (Former Employee) – Flushing, NY – April 30, 2015
as a student working this was a great training and income for me. going to school and working isn't always easy but Long Island Business Institute worked around my schedule and I was able to learn a lot. if you are in the business field staying her to work after you graduate is good but if you are in the Medical field its not such a good idea. overall experience was great.
Office Assistant (Federal student worker) (Former Employee) – Flushing, NY – June 12, 2014
Scanning, filing, and finding jobs. I learned how to do office job. The management was good. My co-workers are nice. The hardest part of the job was finding good job for students. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning something everyday.
Great place to work but no opportunity for advancement
Adjunct ESL Professor (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – January 20, 2014
I have been working at the Long Island Business Institute as an adjunct ESL/English teacher for almost two years. The environment is terrific for both teacher and student. Unfortunately there is no room for advancement or the opportunity for permanent employment. Pay is low and raises are almost unheard of.
