Very Good Learning Experience
Program Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 9, 2017
This is an excellent company to be employed. There are many different areas within the agency that offer different learning experiences. I managed an educational program that was beneficial to educational aides working toward their teacher certification. Benefits are working with students and prospective students and being able to provide guidance and information that ultimately assist in their decision making process.
Pros
Training, Great Benefits and Flexibility
Cons
Workload is heavy during peak seasons
