It’s hard to have work life balance when you’re not sure if you’re going to have a job.
Admissions Advisor (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLMarch 22, 2019
The pay is ok, but honestly, this is a sales position, and for that you would be better off making commission.
The expectations of the job change constantly, and many employees don’t know where they stand as far as performance. There are metrics to meet, based on an ambiguous scorecard, that has changed twice in the last 6 months. If you can get written up (based on metrics) every three months, and fired on the second write-up, you may see how the changes in scoring could be jarring. And no one in management can explain how the scoring works.
The phrase “at the moment” is used to explain these changes and to ask employees to be adaptable. But it is really a bulldozer for any boundaries that an employee can expect to set, in order to attain work-life balance. “At the moment” means that expectations for performance can be changed on a dime, and even something as stabilizing as the days you work can be switched less than three days advance notice. Many employees have children and if they can’t change, are forced to use vacation time to compensate.
We do have paid days off but have been told we cannot ask for certain days off.
HR is hardly existent and rather unresponsive to any of these issues raised.
Pros
Pto
Cons
Bullying management, uncertainty in position

Not a place for growth
Admissions Adviser (Former Employee) –  Ft. Lauderdale, FLMarch 19, 2018
co-workers are good and make the job fun but management has unrealistic goals. Upper management views people as numbers while lower management is weak and has no say for the company path. often times reflects the NBC show "The Office."
