Admissions Counselor (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – February 16, 2015
A typical day at work consists of calling potential students who may of may not be interested in attending graduate school based on the inquiry they submitted online. Showing potential students what University of the Rockies offers through curriculum and customer service is happens on an hourly basis. Enrolling and retaining students through their time as a student is what this company relies on.
In this position I have learned how to remain grounded during intense events. Sales can reach lows through the year and it is my job to be calm and think about how to pick up the pieces and keep a consistent work flow. This takes patience and, most of all, honesty with yourself and co-workers. Truth has gone a long way over the years in helping me and friends at work move onto the next step.
Holding small breakout meetings and trainings is where my passion lies. More than anything I like informing new employees and refreshing old employees' memory about best practices to get the job done. A company is as strong as its weakest employee.
Productive work place with opportunities for personal growth
Manager of Financial Services (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 18, 2014
This is your typical 9-5 office job where you only deal with customers over the phone. I gained a lot of experience here that has helped immensely in my professional development and understanding of the higher education industry. Tightly managed with a lot of experience throughout the company. This is a great place to start a career.
Full-Time Student, University of the Rockies (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – November 11, 2014
I thoroughly enjoyed my graduate level experience, and providing therapeutic services to clients in the university's on-sight community mental health clinic. The academic staff is very knowledgeable and provided a high quality educational experience.
My typical day at work was to cold call prospective students and try to convince them that a non clinical Masters in Psychology would get them somewhere. Most of them actually wanted a clinical masters but I was required to convince them otherwise.
terrible benefits and blatant descrimination against employees
Admissions Counselor (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – January 15, 2014
Desk and office job that was very redundant. There was not much moving or activity outside of the cubical everyday. This is a very fast past phone job, Working on a team was very enjoyable and I was able to meet great co-workers. The office and location downtown Denver on the 16th Street Mall was wonderful and a very beautiful office space.
Adjunct Professor, Psychology (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – July 22, 2013
University of the Rockies has, in my experience, bright and inquisitive students. My only complaint is that the numbers of courses available to teach are few and there aren't any full-time positions available for online faculty.
Graduate Admissions Counselor (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – August 16, 2012
A young company experiencing growing pains. There are really high highs and really low lows. If you are not enrolling students, you are outbound calling up to 200+ times a day. My current department is usually the last to know anything, and often has a direct impact on our roles and being able to assist student appropriately.
