Assistant Director of Admissions in Bowling Green, KY
on October 25, 2020
The overall work is exciting to help people build for their future. The duties can be overwhelming at times but the reward is amazing and makes it worth it since we all have been in a place that we wanted better and just needed help getting there.

It was educational in how to manage in an office setting. It thought me how to work along with others better. How to learn to do more myself with a supervisor over me at all times.

I have been there less than one year. I understand that there were significant staffing changes prior to my hire date. Since I have been there I have had a good work experience. I love my co workers and enjoy interacting with the students. There’s good and bad in every job but overall I am happy with Daymar. I’m still learning the ropes as are a lot of us new staff but I have always gotten prompt answers to my questions. I hope to stay with Daymar for many years!
Faculty in Clarksville, TN
on February 8, 2020
I used to love working for Daymar College! They truly cared about the students and their educational goals! They were also very active in the community. Over the last two years, the culture has changed drastically and students are no longer the priority. The Admissions Representatives are under constant pressure to enroll students even if it is obvious they are not going to be successful. The Financial Aid office is bypassing policy to enroll students who aren't qualified and then Daymar refuses to cancel them until it is too late for students to get full refunds. The faculty are being pressured to "pass" students, even if they are not successful. If any employee speaks up, they are terminated. The new director is a "nice guy" but a terrible manager. He shows favoritism to certain employees in several ways. Some only work 20-30 hours each week even though they are "salary exempt" and being paid for 40+ hours. Others brag about special privileges like not having to work nights even when students are left without instructors, being allowed to stay home on rainy/windy days, and leaving early without having to make up the time or take paid time off (PTO). In the meantime, other salaried employees are expected to work well over 40 hours Monday through Friday and more on the weekends with no extra compensation. Several faculty have lost (PTO) because we are not allowed to use it when classes are in session and there is not enough time between quarters since they shortened the breaks in order to make more money. Those that managed to use all their PTO before the holidays were allowed to take normal work days off anyway. In the meantime, many students are left hanging without instructors and the director doesn't care. His response is to have them sign a blank attendance roster so they can collect their VA benefits and then send them home or let them work on their own in the library. Once or twice in a 12 week quarter is not a big deal, but this is occurring every week. Students are paying for a class and instruction that they are not receiving! Daymar is also on the verge of financial collapse. Their security guard company dropped them because they hadn't paid the bill in months. The CFOs took unpaid furlough over the holidays and asked for other employees to volunteer to do the same so they could make the payroll. The book publishers refuse to provide books to Daymar this year because Daymar has not paid them in months. Daymar had to resort to ordering books from Amazon after 3 to 5 weeks of no textbooks in a new quarter. I just hope they survive long enough for me to reach my retirement age. Everyone else is actively looking for new employment and hoping they can get out before the doors are closed permanently. Unless you want a lot of stress and a temporary job, do not apply for Daymar!
