It was a career that was rewarding.
Director of Finance (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLApril 7, 2014
Pros: students and peers
Cons: micromanagement by the corporate office.
My days were non-stop busy but when you are always helping people reach their dreams it makes the work less noticable and more rewarding.

Unstable work environment
Admissions Advisor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 4, 2014
Pros: n/a
Cons: unstable environment
Fast pace employer in which leads were not updated. We were expected to contact the same leads daily which was very uncomfortable. They displayed no real empathy towards struggling associates and the turnover rate was high. Although I have a strong sales background, Kaplan did not provide me with any support, beneficial education or significant feedback – more... that would ensure my personal success. – less

SLE Proctor (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXMarch 25, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: weak management
A typical day at work would be to prepare all computers for entrance exams. I learned about college entrance procedures how to prepare for an audit. Management was weak, co-workers were great. Hardest part of my job was making sure the attendance forms were accurate each day. Most enjoyable was just being there.

No stability
Medical Assistant Instructor (Current Employee), Houston, TXMarch 20, 2014
Cons: no benefits
Every Monday we would be gathered for a general staff meeting and we were always told that the numbers did not look good for enrollment and the number of drops for the module were to high. Then we were told weekly that they did not know if they were going to keep all of us or have a class for all of the instructors, yet they always posted job openings. – more... I was hired to teach a class for a set amount (a contract) yet when it came pay time I was told that in fact I was hourly. It never was reported how many hours I worked on a paycheck stub, and when I would figure out my hours the pay was never correct.

However, I thoroughly enjoyed working with my fellow instructors. The students who came to obtain an education were a great joy to teach. I really enjoyed working with the student who wanted to better themselves. – less

Pros: the students
This job is very rewarding in that I am able to work with a student from start to finish. To see the student walk across the stage to receive their degree is one of the greatest parts of this job. Just to know I was a part of that makes me feel proud to do what I am currently doing.

Kaplan allows me to be an environment where I can interact with other people. It also exposes me to the types of courses offered by Kaplan in case I would need to pursue the MCAT, LSAT, or GRE. Kaplan also gives me an opportunity to see what it takes to market an item to target and grab people's interest.

Competitive work place with high daily standards and goals
Sr. Admission Advisor (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FLMarch 3, 2014
Pros: great co-workers to work with.
Cons: job security was very low due to high employee turn around
An energetic working environment with strict daily goals to meet. I learned how to communicate more effectively with customers regardless of their mood or satisfaction level. Management were great people at heart but sometimes can be overly data driven and forget the staff's needs. The hardest part of this job was meeting every goal and/or standard – more... set by management. I truly enjoyed the staff and their openness to help co-workers when they had a problem. – less
