"You're helping people get into $15k's worth of debt so they can get a job barely making minimum wage. No wonder the government is coming down on these institutions."

Admissions Representative at MedTech
in Lexington, KY

What do you like about working at MedTech?

"I truly enjoy the job as it is supposed to be (helping students be successful) and I love my co-workers. We work together as a team to work toward our goals and we have all become very close."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"I like the company itself, but avoid admissions and ask a lot of questions regarding the day to day of the position."

What don't you like about working at MedTech?

"The overall attitude of our corporate structure that does not value its employees at all levels. The stress to enroll every student (even if they are not meant for the medical field) and to hit a quota every month is very stressful and does not allow for any vacation/personal time. The work/home percentage is about 90/10 and the pressure of the job leads to a great deal of stress."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Respect your staff and partner with them to be more successful in reaching monthly goals. Give constructive criticism to help staff improve on techniques. Allow for more of a work/home life balance."

Admissions Representative at Argosy University
in Alameda, CA

What do you like about working at Argosy University?

"Being among faculty that truly care about the students and their success"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"My role is a 2 to 3 year sales job, without sales bonuses. It is referred to as a customer service job, which is how I treat it, but it is a sales job - all about applications, and hundreds of phone calls a week to the same potential students that may pick up the phone on the 50th try, 8 months, in a row of calling them. Absolutely no job security, constant 'Start' stress, and poor leadership."

What don't you like about working at Argosy University?

"Money focused to appease Stockholders - STOCKHOLDERS!. Feels like Argosy wants to become a diploma mill. What is promised to the students is not delivered. I do believe in the Programs, and the professors, but the academic focus went away when it became a publicly traded company: EDMC."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Invest in the academics - build strong reputable programs to drive business"

Admissions Representative at Milan Institute
in Concord, CA

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"I learned a great deal about admissions and the cosmetology industry"

What do you like about working at Milan Institute?

"I had great co-workers and instructors dedicated to educating every student that came in to the school. Everyone truly cared and we held the highest licensure and placement rates of the entire company."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Milan is a great company to work for but make sure that the school you interview for is considered a midsize or large school. There is more chance for opportunities for growth and promotion at those schools. Also, having a great personality and an enthusiam to help people to suceed their goals and dreams is essential for this field."

What don't you like about working at Milan Institute?

"There was no ability for growth or promotion at a small school like mine. When I was hired, I wasn't trained, just told to read all the policies and procedures in admissions and sit in on the other reps interviews to see how it was done. It took me longer than average to adjust to this business as I didn't have any experience prior."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Make sure that every new person is trained the same way so that no one is penalized for lack of knowledge. Keep communication lines open even if the news that needs to get shared is not good news. Don't tell an employee false information knowingly even if you feel that it is in their best interest at that time."
