Worse place for training
HVAC Instructor (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJuly 13, 2018
Really bad culture, cut throat atmosphere, and little pay. We were not provided with materials for hands on training with HVAC students. School cared more about money than the welfare of the students.
Pros
none
Cons
The whole private volcational system

It’s an unprofessional environment

I’ve attended this school while doing side work there with another teacher and the experience was ok. Nothing was amazing or outgoing but I myself would not go back.

productive and admirable work enviornment
Admissions Representative (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLJune 6, 2018
i spent most of my day on the phone or in interviews and learned that every prospect comes from a different background. the managment team was there to help and guide potential prospects and the work culture was very diverse. id say the hardest part of the job was listening to some of the harsh situations prospects have gone through in their life and the most enjoyable was being able to turn those hardships around and give them a better future
Pros
free lunches
Cons
lots of overtime

A spirit-breaking institution with a plethora of poor attitudes...
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Winter Park, FLMay 15, 2018
Spent 50 hours, plus, there each week, but could only be paid for 40. Everyone's attitude is horrible except for some instructors. No one who works there likes it, so morale is constantly down. You are wrung out like a sponge until there is nothing left of your spirit. And they don't care about how much they use you to further their agenda. They don't do what's best for the students, just what is best for their corporate agenda. Other departments makes it difficult for you to do your job because they do not stick to ethical codes and practices, and they want someone who will look the other way when they need things to be done outside of procedure. The hardest part of the job for everyone is dealing with one another in this unorganized place for this company that doesn't even give you time off to repair your home from hurricane damage without docking it from your pay. You won't want to get up in the morning, and the things you'll encounter will blow your mind due to its lack of professionalism and basic sense.

Unprofessional Management
Career Services Advisor/Externship Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Pembroke Pines, FLMay 3, 2018
FCC is a disaster. Everything is about a number and not the best interest of the student. If you are passionate about education this is not the school for you. They lie and cheat to score placements.Students sign in and leave. The main focus is just keeping numbers regardless of doing a disservice to the student. The lack of integrity in the Pines Campus is huge.
Pros
no pros
Cons
amount of pointless meeting, falsification of employments and attendance, lack of integrity

Hostile environment, poorly managed
Instructor (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLApril 22, 2018
Firstly the school only cares about retention rates, enrollment, absenteeism and collecting payments.....these topics are covered on daily basis in meetings and it is mentally draining. Academics are rarely discussed or held to a high standard, students enrolled often dont have GED's and are enrolled in the GED program at the same time. Some students lack basic command of English, Mathematics and soft skills to function in the work field. Some students also have previous felonies etc and are lied to with false promises of employement in the future. The higher ups are unorganized and often supplies are low, basic necessities like gloves are often lacking. NO PAID VACATIONS, NO BENEFITS OR ADVANCEMENT.
Pros
co-workers
Cons
stress, poor management, low pay, no benefits

Cut throat company
CDC (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLApril 21, 2018
Working for FCC is stressful, cut throat, and thankless. Managers will smile in your face while plotting to fire you. The life expectancy of any employee is 6 months to 1 year. Students are cattled in and turnover is high and morale is very low.
Pros
There are no pros
Cons
Working here is a con

Kiosk Representative (Former Employee) –  West Palm Beach, FLApril 13, 2018
A bit difficult to get good quality leads. It's competitive because you are working with someone else and you both are trying seek good candidates for potential students. No job security.

One of the worse places to work for.
Associate Director of Education (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLApril 6, 2018
Complete disregard for the well being of the employee. No life/work balance. Even if you call in sick, expect to get several calls from the supervisor asking you to do things for the company. Unfair treatment; discrimination against minorities, unfair hiring practices.
Pros
You get a paycheck every 2 weeks
Cons
Too many to mention

Headache
Medical Assistant Instructor (Former Employee) –  Margate, FLApril 2, 2018
It could be an ideal place to work for. Poor management lets the school down. Instructors get no benefits at all. Three weeks off and no pay!! How are you able to survive working for a place like that. And you never know if tomorrow you still have your job. Big turn over!

due to the nature of the financial aid office operation, the job can be very stressful and unfulfilling as the goals' expectations are in my opinion,
Student Finance Advisor (Current Employee) –  Margate, FLFebruary 7, 2018
due to the nature of the financial aid office operation, the job can be very stressful and unfulfilling as the goals' expectations are in my opinion, unrealistic considering employees are human beings not machines and have lives to live outside work. Employees usually overwork and stress leaving them with serious illnesses and ailments. This company provides very limited office supplies.
Pros
Financial aid Trainings available
