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"
