Print Center Manager (Former Employee) – Vienna, VA – June 4, 2012
As a manager I would review all upcoming task and assign them to my co-workers. I made sure inventory was filled and troubleshooted all printers, designed all posters and materials handed out to all the students.
Sanford Brown was a very interesting place to work. Every job has its ups and downs but for the most part, S B Dallas was a great place to work. Although the company is now closed, a corporate decision, which had nothing do with the staff or students, I would return if opportunity presented.
Adjunct Faculty (Former Employee) – Cranston, RI – September 21, 2017
Unfortunately this organization did not have a long life in Rhode Island, therefore I can only say that it was a good experience to be part of the staff for two modules, teaching in the Allied Health field. The staff was friendly but constantly changing. The building and location was very nice for me to access. I wish that they would have been successful enough to stay in RI longer!
Director of Student Finance (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – September 12, 2017
- High ethical standards and business practices. - Extremely competitive very fast paced - Every customer has different needs and wants - Having to inform costumers due to their certain circumstances they were not able to be financed.
Unproductive workplace, little advancement, little perks
Adjunct Evening medical instructor (Former Employee) – Trevose, PA – September 3, 2017
Company in this area closed after 2014. Still nationwide. Did learn instructing students in their needs and the fields I taught. Management wasn't helpful for the most part. Students there weren't all capable of being there. Some classes were too large without without assistance sometimes. It wasn't a good work environment on the whole.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – August 31, 2017
I miss working at Sanford Brown. The school closed and it was a sad event for all. I loved waking up and going to work, Knowing that i am part of a team that helped students achieve their goals. Our time of managers did a great job. The hardest part of my job is graduation for our students and never seeing them again. The most enjoyable part of my job was waking up and going to work.
Financial Aid Advisor (Former Employee) – Saint Charles, MO – August 17, 2017
A typical day at Sanford Brown College would include working with students preparing them for enrollment through financial aid. I would help them complete the forms for applying for financial aid and direct them to the institution that would best meet their needs. I would submit their applications to the proper institution. I also would assist the Financial Aid Manager with any reports he was working on. The management was quite pleasant and helpful. The hardest part of the job was leaving. The most enjoyable part of the job was interaction with the students.
Adjunct MA Instructor (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 10, 2017
School does not support teachers with students. Just concerned with sales and passes unqualified students who are not ready for position. Long hours to d class assignments. Students are very difficult.
Adjunct Professor (Former Employee) – FL – August 3, 2017
Corporate restructuring shut down a lot of colleges. Most of them are defunct now. Back in their heydey they were a nice, friendly place to work. After 2014 however, the writing was on the wall about mass-layoffs and school closures.
Instructor (Former Employee) – Tinley Park, IL – July 10, 2017
Sanford Brown may have started with best of intentions, as well with many of the For Profit colleges, but something got lost in translation. Ill equipped to provide students with adequate tools and learning experience to function in real world.
