Company reviews
"Love the job especially since working remotely"
Current EmployeeStudent Coordinator
answer phone, address issues, submit tickets and notate files great training, supportive team, positive culture I enjoy working with students and my co-workers have all been supportive. Very caring people

"Horrible online teaching job"
Former EmployeeAdjunct Instructor
They require too much of you and micromanage everything you do with your class. If you like autonomy don't do it. Also they do not care about you as a person, just student demands. They require too much for so little pay, about $300 or so every other week. 5 page papers to grade every other week, your responses to students are dictated by them and the leadership does not care about you and how you feel. They just want to push the students through. Don't do it!

"Fun place to work"
