Adjunct Instructor
Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLFebruary 19, 2018
The working conditions and environment are excellent. However, the class offerings are minimal since I only teach general education classes while most of the school program is structured around golf skills, teaching, and career. This limits the amount of classes I can teach and the compensation. As an adjunct there are few benefits

Friendly Staff
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZAugust 20, 2017
The staff at this company was so nice, they always had each others back and were always there not matter what you needed. There were not many perks to the company but as a whole, it was a really neat job to have. Even the management was great to work for.
Cons
Lack of work for Receptionist

Challenging
Student Finance Specialist (Former Employee) –  Carlsbad, CAJuly 17, 2017
Typical for-profit career school. GAA has pretty low standards for its students and directors, but seemingly high standards for its front-line employees. Hope things get better there before they get worse.

Need new management
Student Finance Specialist (Former Employee) –  Carlsbad, CAApril 25, 2017
Worked with new potential students who wanted to either apply for financial aid or pay cash for their education. Did some collections. The enrollment counselors would have off site meetings to play golf. The financial aid staff would only work within office. The hardest part of the job is to try and make it work for a student who cannot afford this school. The management is part of a the good boys club.
Pros
School passion about golf
Cons
New management

America, Myrtle Beach- Enrollment Specialist (Former Employee) –  Myrtle beach, SCApril 28, 2015
They tend to lead you astray on the position being offered. The Manager i worked under should not have been a manager. She was condesending, back stabbing and not a good manager.
