Pros: hour lunch
Cons: time off restrictions
calling students that have been out of attendance for over a year, learned new script information, management that I am working with now is more professional, co-workers are awesome and welcoming, the hardest part is getting time off sometimes, the enjoyable part is talking to a different variety of students.

Admin. Assist/Student Services Coordinator (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZFebruary 13, 2015
You just never know what you are coming into work to face. Years ago it was great but now, it's nothing like it use to be. It's a fun company to work for at times but they aren't a reliable company at the moment.

Busy work environment
Finance Manager (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZFebruary 11, 2015
Pros: paid lunches, team builders
A typical day at work is monitoring the floor to ensure coverage is there to answer calls coming in. I learned that if you don't meet the needs of the clients your customer service level tend to decrease. Management is a great role to have, as it allows you to help others meet their individual goal. I have a great group of peers, they have talents that I adopt in my everyday duties. The hardest part of the job is being micromanaged. The most enjoyable part of the job is spending time with my team, recognizing them for doing great things.

As a student i learned (taking classes) the ins and outs in management and working there allowed me to get.

Extraordinary faculty and student support
Adjunct Professor, Management (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZFebruary 10, 2015
Pros: online classroom platform
Cons: infrequent student conflicts with their current job and requirements of courses, specifically assignment due dates
Faculty provide a rigorous learning environment and are aware of teaching working adults. This means course work revolves around both theory, concepts, and especially applications. Faculty appointments require proven expertise in their professional roles and academic preparation. Faculty help students understand complex concepts vividly and practically through real world examples.

Great place to teach. Great support from colleagues.
Adjunct Professor - Psychology/Social Sciences (Current Employee), Dallas, TXFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: good pay for adjunct faculty
Cons: local administrators are not in charge of assigning classes.
Great place to be an Adjunct Professor. They supported my transfer from California to Texas. A typical night is started at 6:00 and ends at 10:00. My colleagues are supportive and willing to help in many situations. The hardest part of teaching is when students do not post work but expect an A for showing up. The most enjoyable part of this job is getting to know students and see them at graduation.

Executive Financial Service Rep/Team Lead (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZJanuary 29, 2015
I worked there for 8 years. It was ok at times then it had it times. The company went through a lot of changes throughout the time I was there. I guess it is just like any other company in corporate America that stayed afloat. Change is good. The co workers were o to work with and I learned a lot of information in the financial aid field at UOP. This place is like a stepping stone to the higher education working with financial aid because you learn so many different things and you have to earn to figure things out for yourself which I think is good if you want to be successful at the job.

Pay and vacation time is great. No real opportunity for advancement and leadership is lacking at times.
Enrollment Representative (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZJanuary 29, 2015
Typical work day includes using Microsoft Office to complete various tasks. Email and call perspective students. Communicate program information and help student with the application and financial process of enrollment. The hardest part of the job is when you are capped out on the transfer calls so your entire day is dialing outbound calls and leaving about 40 messages a day. There are some days where you do not talk to a single person on the phone. I do enjoy talking to people and helping them get their educational journey started and hopefully improving their lives.
