The school is closing with others that are scarttered throughout the US. They don't provide a real education and will work you to death. They have been in a lot of trouble with the Department of Education just google the school and the company that owns them carreer education corporation.

RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Admissions Representative (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLJune 20, 2012
Pros: meeting new people
Cons: everything else!
If you enjoy working in an extremely high pressured environment with zero accolades, low ethics,no incentives, no bonuses, no communication on company changes, no real sense of appreciation for employees, and no chance for growth, then this is the place for you!

A typical day at work would include a new change being made to a policy that was just changed – more... a week ago, being micromanaged down to every tiny detail (be sure to tell them when you use the bathroom), and constantly being ridiculed about everything that you are doing wrong. It is a "what have you done for me lately" type of environment, with unrealistic expectations.

Very low morale, no sense of camaraderie, and terrible marketing (they expect you to bring in referrals on your PERSONAL time for FREE!). You are told to call "prospective students" who have requested information online when the truth is only 5% of the people actually did request info. Then you are pressured to coerce them into coming in to the school to sign up for very high priced programs that they may or may not get a job in, then can't use the credits at another school or university. Most of the students targeted are from low income households.

Extremely high turnover rate! In my tenure, there were 27 co-workers in my dept that came and went and 5 supervisors in a very short period of time. The same also happens in education dept. The hardest part of the job was feeling overwhelmed, pressured, and very unappreciated, then told to 'motivate' others to invest their time and money into the school? The most enjoyable part was getting to work with some good people and make new friends. Management is HORRIBLE! We were constantly being told that "we don't sell education". Then what product do they sell??????

So, unless you are absolutely desperate for employment and don't mind torture, run far, FAR away from ANY "Admissions" jobs, including those at other for profit institutes.
