Academic Program Director (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 12, 2017
Productive and great place to work. Our education team was close-knit and we had an amazing campus President. He understood what it took to run the campus to ensure that student's and employee's had a great place to teach their craft and learn.
Adjunct Faculty-Allied Health (Current Employee) – Southfield, MI – February 8, 2017
A typical day begins with providing lecture to the students. Gathering feedback from the students on what they have learned and implementing the subject matter during clinicals. The environment at Everest is very positive. Management and staff works diligently to ensure that the education that we provide is measurable and easily understood. The hardest part of the job is knowing what many of the students are facing in their personal life and not being able to totally address their needs. The most enjoyable part of the job is sowing into people.
Not enough paid preparation time for class, low salary

Director of Student Finance (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – November 8, 2016
There is no work life balance, senior management is negative driving a negative environment for all employees. One will learn to be extremely resilient in this work environment. The hardest part of working in this company is the ability to not lose yourself in the negative environment.
Program Chair-Dental Assisting (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – October 22, 2016
Some days could be challenging more than others. The obstacle was placement of some students and graduates. Some of the managers that are in and were in place did not belong in their position. Overall most of the staff, faculty and the students did ant to serve in their roles effectively but did not have the support of management when needed.
hours were okay, changed every other day but you were off on weekends. Constantly on the phone reading scripts to people who are not interested in furthering education. Had to call new leads 3 times a day or else you had to explain in front of the whole team why you were not making your calls. very micromanaged. management makes you feel like a child.
Formally, owned by Corinthian and now Zenith Education Group are school has changed drastically, I appreciate focus on student understanding of Federal Student Aid and department separating our new students and continuing students.
A day at work include contacting students to request documents, discuss Federal Student Aid limits and student remaining Federal Student Aid, create payment arrangements, and update spreadsheet. Also, assisting new student with Free Application for Federal Student Aid and other required financial aid documents.
I enjoy my team. We help each other and have a good time
Former Employee (Former Employee) – Colorado – September 1, 2016
uncertain future - missing applicable knowledge in education industry. following predecessor footsteps with a lot of talk of what is needed to be a step ahead of the competition but failing to see that they are at least 5 - 6 years behind.
Curriculum Manager (Former Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – August 21, 2016
While I worked at the corporate office, we were not aware of the issues involved at many campuses that affected thousands of students enrolled in various programs. Before the company went under, the previous company was bought by a company that did not have much experience in the educational sector. That was when job security, management and job culture dropped to the floor.
The company was created when they came in to the education industry. They just can't seem to get their footing right to be successful. Instead they are cutting key positions, and making decisions without looking at the overall impact
Director (Former Employee) – Washington State – August 9, 2016
Zenith Educational Group does not have the well being of their employees in mind. Zenith has continual changes in their process which does not give the employee a sense of security. The goals given are not attainable. There has been continual management changes and a sense that the company is in dire need of stability. There is no Vision from the campus or corporate level. Promises are made and broken continually. No training available for employees. The employees do not have a sense of loyalty to this company because of the continual lay-offs that have happened for the past 2.5 years. The hardest part of the job at Zenith is the lack of leadership at the campus level. At my campus "no one cares".
Extreme lack of Leadership at the coporate level and campus level.
