Few opportunities for growth and no power to create change
Assistant Director of Admissions (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – July 9, 2018
The university seems like it might be moving in the right direction under the new ownership. However, change is slow and rare. Success or failure in the admissions positions were numbers based and few admissions reps ever felt true job security.
The pay is among the best in the industry for the position. Admissions reps should be prepared to make a lot of phone calls, working many leads that did not intend to send an inquiry. (lot's of leads simply clicked on a pop-up or felt they needed to complete a survey to move on in a separate application)
The culture is finally starting to become more student-centric, however, which may ultimately push the school in the right direction!
Highly personable people who like to have an impact on the lives of others will do well here.
DO NOT apply here if you are easily frustrated by not having your voice heard by management or if you are easily exhausted by a lot of social interaction. You also need to be competitive and willing to be challenged by difficult, sometimes nearly unreachable, goals.
Compensation, Unlimited Overtime, Ability to have impact on others
Little opportunity for advancement, no voice, low job security
