Fun place until reality sets in
Assistant Director of Admissions (Current Employee) – Main campus – July 27, 2015
I joined Ai Houston two years ago. I wanted a job where I could make a positive difference in people's lives. My coworkers are fun and we get to have some great times outside of work but after awhile I began to feel that I was just sticking hopeful (and often low-income) students with huge debt. Despite that, I have carried on and been one of the best Admissions reps there, yet all of my work and dedication is just pushed aside if my conversion rate falls lower than they want. So instead of using my talents, they just push me to work harder and not reward any of my dedication up until this point.
This job is just a stepping stone, I wouldn't suggest anyone make a career of this and do not stay too long, the stress from management will make you more and more stressed each day. You are only as good as your previous week and management will only look upon you well, if you convert, otherwise you are just someone they have to deal with.
Great coworkers, fun events, getting to work with people
Micro-management, unrealistic goals
