IT Support Center & F.A.T.S. Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 12, 2018
I worked here while attending school here. I had the ability to choose the days I wanted to work, as long as I was there when I said I would be. The system in the Firearms Training Simulation Lab was down very often, but since I knew how to detect and solve the errors, it wasn't really a problem for me.
Student Services Advisor (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 10, 2018
I love my time at AIU. The job can get busy, but isn't overly stressful. The coworkers are wonderful and the work environment is great. The biggest issue is the lack of advancement and the low pay. I was always happy to go to work, but it is not easy to support one's self off of the salary.

Training Solutions Designer (Current Employee) – Cook County, IL – June 27, 2018
I've worked here for over 10 years in two separate positions. First, I worked as an Admissions Advisor. In that role, I offered information to and answered questions from prospective students. I would also assist them with applying for college and preparing for class.
After that, I worked as an Instructional Designer. In that role, I created and maintained training materials for the university's Admissions department. I was one of a small team of 3 designers. We also coordinated with classroom trainers and performance analysts to identify performance gaps and ways to improve learners' classroom experiences.
I like the Instructional Design position a lot. My supervisor is flexible and knowledgeable. I have the creative freedom to design software, build learning games, write participant workbooks, develop websites, archive job aids, and record / edit audio. These are all things I enjoy doing outside of work, except I get paid to do them for this company. It's like having the creative freedom of a freelancer with the stability of a corporate job.
It's been a good experience so far.
creative freedom, corporate support, strong leadership, positive work environment, great benefits, good pay
45 minute commute each way; for-profit educational model

National Admissions Advisor (Former Employee) – Beaverton, OR – May 28, 2018
A great experience! Lots of training and encouragement. You definitely are encouraged to compete with co workers to get higher numbers but that is the job. There were benefits to getting higher numbers. It was a great working environment with staff that even participated in Halloween costumes and potlucks. I would love to be able to do this again and even more if I could do this as a remote position.
Senior Admissions Advisor (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – May 24, 2018
Basically this is a call center sales jobs. Very unethical practices. They want you to enroll students primarily from poorly educated backgrounds, get them to sign up for a 60,000$ Degree online. The leads are the absolute WORST! They market to students who are only “looking for a job” and expect employees to convert them into students, or convince students who want to do nursing or welding to pursue one of our programs instead. You’re better off just taking on a sales job, at least you’ll get commission.
Recruiter (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 19, 2018
Working for AIU is a good opportunity for recent grads and those who are looking to make a little more money as they look for a more long-term, stable career. AIU is numbered/sales driven and if you can't sell a prospective student an education for $60,000 plus, (which it pretty difficult with such high tuition rate), then you may not last too long, especially if you're not a kiss up. But hey, that's just my experience. I haven't been here for a whole year yet, and I'm eagerly and actively seeking new employment.
