A typical day at the University of Phoenix consisted of data management, multitasking and setting appointments to do applications for admissions. Following up with current students and showing them support was also a daily task. I learned a lot from working at the University of Phoenix. I learned what corporate structure was and how a large corporation – more... ran on a daily basis. I also learned about post secondary education, financial aid, and building relationships over the phone. Management was well structured and motivational conversations happened daily. My co-workers were more that just co-workers they were my friends. We were at work more than we were at home so we helped each other out to reach our goals. The hardest part of the job was keeping the students motivated. It was 100% online which makes it difficult for some students to achieve their goals. The most enjoyable part of my job was the atmosphere. There were 10-15 people on a team and our teammates became close almost like family. – less
