Great University with job security!
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Downers Grove, ILApril 28, 2016
Working here is great because of the salary and benefits but, be careful with management in certain departments. They can be Very unethical, and they love to micromanage the employees. They come and go as they please, take long breaks and chat on the phone for hours on personal matters. Take unscheduled time off and they do not report it, but of course that is probably because they could be good friends with hr. And they love to gossip and criticize other people on unethical behavior when they themselves love to do it as well.
Pros
some free lunches, salary, benefits
Cons

Terrible place to work if you care about animals.
Veterinary Assistant (Former Employee) –  Glendale, AZMay 29, 2016
I worked with animals at the Vet School caring for animals. I believed them when they said they care about the animals. Don't work there if you care about the animals. You will butt heads and lose.
Pros
Good parent company Midwestern University)
Cons
Bad people running the large animal area.

Administrative Assistant/Admissions Counselor (Current Employee) –  Glendale, AZDecember 15, 2013
Come into work and check email/phone messages. Depending on how busy we are in the office, you could be assigned one specific task, such as phones. However, you could be covering a multiple areas.
The hardest part of the job is having to tell potential students that they currently do not qualify, due to test scores or grades.

The most enjoyable part of the day is working with my coworkers and establishing relationships with students.
Pros
Travel all of the United States.
Cons
Interview Season

A typical day at work, is working on your own, and picking up what last shift didn't do because they didn't know what to do, what I learned is a lot about plumbing, a lot of clogged drains, fun place to work
