Office Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ontario, CAApril 22, 2015
This job was a federal work study program where I was able to work and attend school at the same time. This provided much opportunity to obtain skills in the office and still manage my studies. My co-workers were also the professors at West Coast University so I enjoyed getting to know them more personally.
Pros
Able to work and attend school at the same time
Cons
Only allowed to work 20 hours per week

Typical for profit institution
Peon (Former Employee) –  Ontario, CAFebruary 25, 2015
Just another for profit school that only cares about the all mighty dollar and not about their employees and students. Good place to start but don't get comfortable. And to students....take your time and go to a CC then a real U so you don't have to have 100k plus in loans!
Pros
decent pay
Cons
numbers driven school. no security.

Founding Science Department Chair (Current Employee) –  Ontario, CAAugust 8, 2013
I worked for this company for ca. 5 years. This is an excllent company to work for, in terms of benefits, environment and Supervisors. Lack of job security and slow advancement are two factors that are affecting me personally at this point. Otherwise, I would keep for this companny for several more years to come. I am 100% satisfied with my work.
Pros
excellent compensation
Cons
insurance premiums high-no contract or tenure.

Typical FA job.
FINANCIAL AID OFFICER (Current Employee) –  OntarioJuly 24, 2013
Day to day job is to meet with students and determine their federal aid eligibility. Complete files and meet benchmarks. Currently management is in process of revamping the FA process. Co workers are great. Management can be better; if you have children this might not be the best place as they are not as flexible in work hours.
