Kaplan University Employee
in Urbandale, IA

"This was a federal work study program, so it was very structured in regards to what could be done, and not be done. There was little or no flexibility for the supervisor because of this fact. I was successful in the position and the majority of the students that I tutored all elevated their GPA and all passed the courses. My coworkers relied on me to not only tutor in fields that they did not fee comfortable, but would often ask me to be a second opinion assist with their students."

Business Office Manager

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

What suggestions do you have for management?

"While meetings are a useful tool in sharing information between departments, they should not interfere with daily duties on a regular basis. So in making a recommendation for improvements, I would consider cutting back on some of the daily management meetings and utilize email and IM more."
