For-profit practices in a "non-profit" school
Admissions Advisor (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – August 31, 2018
I worked for National University for two years. I loved my coworkers at the local campus, I loved working with local students, and I loved what National University seemed to stand for when I first started working there. I hated the upper level management. From what I experienced, it is my opinion that they shifted from focusing on the good of the students and the local communities to focusing on the numbers of online admissions they could get. The pressure to get more students and more numbers became really high, while the pressure to provide quality service to enrolled students was minimal. They are a non-profit university in name only, because their internal practices are reminiscent of a for-profit school.
Steady schedule, useful training, potentially great coworkers
Sketchy upper management
