For Profit institution
Dean of Students (Former Employee) –  Jackson, MSAugust 3, 2018
The students were nice. The college had potential to develop young men and women from at-risk back grounds into great members of society. However, you must keep in mind that it is a for-profit college based on the student population. Some students qualified for and applied for large student loans, and later withdrew, not knowing their loans would become due soon afterwards.They were neither well advised financially nor academically.
Pros
Friendly students; The President was a caring individual.
Cons
Too many of the administrators had weak leadership skills

Financial Planner Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALJuly 30, 2018
While working at the campus, I worked directly with students. This taught me many customer service skills. Sometimes it was difficult in dealing with so many personalities, but it was rewarding to help students be able to fund their education and achieve their dreams of an education.

I loved working for Virginia College Huntsville until they changed the President (not the one there now, he is great) Corporate sent in hatchet lady
Program Director of the Cosmetology Dept. (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALJuly 25, 2018
I loved teaching, it was my dream career. The problem was the upper management was about the money and not the employees.The employee could fly under the radar and skim through but if you questioned anything or they didn't like you in the office...that's a wrap.
If your adjunct your never secure.
Pros
Teaching
Cons
Management doesn't care about you

Would Not Recommend

Too much management turnover. Students did not want to work. Low standards and lower expectations. Very frustrating when the students don't care about their education and give the bare minimum.
Cons
student body, high turnover

Don't waste your time
Instructor (Former Employee) –  Biloxi, MSJuly 4, 2018
Unless you have no other options, do not waste your time working here. They do not care about you and they never will. The time you work here will not help you or really count toward anything in the future. Keep it for your back up plan....
Pros
usually hiring
Cons
management, hours

Allied Health Program Director (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAJuly 3, 2018
Without previous experience I would be totally lost in this position. Virginia College has great resources and the ability to master the educational industry. However, for some reason its focal point is numbers. Quantity not quality
Pros
Meeting great people and being apart of a great team
Cons
Long hours;eat, sleep, work
