General Education Instructor (Former Employee) –  Broadview Heights, OHSeptember 20, 2017
Working late at night. Not enough hours, not enough pay. Never know what you will get. Students are not into studying GenEd classes. No raises, and you have to call each student every night.

Quick paced and educational
Adjunct Faculty Medical Assisting Program (Current Employee) –  Quincy, ILSeptember 17, 2017
The company is orientated on providing the best education to all students. Staff is quick to jump in and assist all students and other staff members. Management is there to assist in any way possible. The most rewarding part of the day is to see students learn, the hardest part of the day is to see the frustration some students have at learning something difficult or out of their social norm
Cons
Low salary

COLLEGE STUDENT (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKSeptember 13, 2017
My instructors were awesome. My fellow classmates, for the most part were pleasant. The front office was horrible, with few exceptions. I would NOT recommend any one else to attend.
Pros
Good teachers, pleasant hours.
Cons
Horrible admins.

Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOSeptember 11, 2017
You will work hard to set up classes and follow up with students and the compensation is not in alignment with the work. I enjoy teaching though because it's rewarding.

Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOSeptember 5, 2017
Hours were okay, location wasn't great, nor the salary. Long drives to work for less pay than I was worth.

Great IT director, and co-workers, though.

Management needs a complete overhaul
Instructor (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MOJuly 28, 2017
Company has a real problem with only caring about numbers and not people. The tone of the school is set by leadership, this school went without sound leadership for months and when the new leader came in, no expectations were set, no mission statement or vision for where the school was going or how we were going to get there as a team. Without a plan, the plan is to fail, that's exactly what is happening here. I doubt if we will be open by the end of the year.

Head Registrar (Current Employee) –  Saint Louis, MOJuly 25, 2017
School is on accreditation warning and job security is a thing of the past. Many employees have been fired or demoted and salaries have been cut. It is a bad time for the company overall.
Pros
Not many.
Cons
Instability

Horrible. Management doesn't care about good things that instructors do.. it's all about money. There is no employee appreciation. The lack of communication creates a hostile work environment..

Instructor Review
Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOJuly 14, 2017
Class size is small. Have a lot of latitude in teaching. Instructors work well with each other. Many instructors are retired military that bring good administration and structure to the classroom.
Pros
Go above and beyond to help students to graduate
Cons
Recruiting of new students lacking

Working with the students was rewarding as well.

Horrible company
Instructor (Former Employee) –  Quincy, ILJune 26, 2017
This company cares about money first, students second, and employees last.They expect you to do your job without the proper tools needed to achieve the proper end goal. When you ask for something you are told everyone is in the same situation, deal with it. Forget about a raise no matter how well you do your job or how many extra jobs you take on to help the company out. They try to have as many part time instructors as possible so they don't have to pay any benefits and the pay is low for part time workers. would not recommend that anyone take a job with this company. The culture is toxic at best.
Pros
Lots of holidays if you are full time
Cons
Corporate couldn't care less about you.

Powersports Program Director (Current Employee) –  Saint Charles, MOMay 24, 2017
I prefer not to comment and do not want to post. They offer flexible 4 day work week for Program Directors and Instructors. But they are severely lacking in the advertising for enrollment of programs.
Pros
4 day work week
Cons
do not advertise enough for enrollment

Program Director of Dental Assisting (Former Employee) –  Des Moines, IAMay 10, 2017
Teaching multiple science diciplines.

That there are so many different ways that the human mind learns.

Management had a true caring for the students and employees.

The culture since it is a specialized course curriculum is a bit isolated.

Seeing a student give up.

The success that you feel with every hurdle crossed.
Pros
Professionalizm.
Cons
Long hours.

Enrollment Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNApril 28, 2017
A typical day is calling old leads to come out and tour the school. Sometimes calling the same people three to four times a day, also making people enroll at a school that doesn't have a cleaning crew or security.
Pros
a check
Cons
going home

A pittance of compensation.
Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee) –  North Park, MOApril 28, 2017
Unlike most higher education, Vatterott doesn't seem to hire instructors as faculty - only as independent contractors. Classes are rushed, meeting once a week for 4 hours at a time. In addition, classes only last 10 weeks. You try teaching the entirety of College Algebra in the span of 10 weeks. Because of the shortness of the courses, acquiring more than two or three at a time is very difficult, usually maxing at two or three standing contracts at a time.

The facility itself is run-down. The overhead screens are damaged and never fixed. I never got an office to hold office hours, but I was still expected to hold office hours on campus.

Adjunct instructors are required to punch into an online clock during work. I do not expect this from a profession that requires a Master's Degree in education.
Cons
low pay, no benefits, unmaintained premises, no office, time-clock, rushed classes
