Suze Orman Warns Against Private Student Loans, Yet Teaches at University of Phoenix

David Halperin has been a champion to fight the predatory nature of for-profit colleges, including University of Phoenix. Mr. Halperin is not a revolutionary, he is a reformer. From my perspective, workers need to resist now, and need to stand up against students getting preyed upon. Failure to resist will result in the total failure of the company....http://www.huffingtonpost.com/davidhalperin/suze-orman-warns-against_b_5269212.html?utm_hp_ref=tw

The pasty woman making a f***ing idiot out of herself looks like Kim the Director of Enrollment in San Diego. The dancing reminds me of the flashmob bing that that robot skank used to do. That woman comes from white trash parentage--the slutty tramp stamp and poor communication skills precede her every step.

Apollo Group and UoP Perp Walks Ahead?

With no legislation that can get passed, and no major wars ahead, maybe the Obama Administration will take a closer look at Apollo Group management. According to the new head of the criminal division at DOJ “certainly, there are cases where you also want to prosecute the company....But I think you get the best outcome -- really across the board in terms of deterrence, in terms of the message to the public -- when you prosecute individuals.”.....http://www.businessweek.com/news/2014-09-12/enron-busting-godzilla-aids-governments-hunt-for-crime

There are so many haters.

My degree was well worth the time and money spent. $50,000 for a diploma that balances an uneven table is well worth it.Paying $600 a month in loans is a pleasure . I get plenty of exercise walking to 7-11 cause I can't afford a car due to the loan payment and can't get a decent job cause I am UoP educated. I love the fact that my life is totally messed up cause I went to Pheonix. I am a sucker for being abused. If anybody wants to give me a golden shower or poop on me let me know. I would even let Camden Kid barf on me.

Larry Fitzgerald has been the most popular student at UoP.... When the hell will this guy graduate........ He is probably waiting for his next Pell Grant disbursement before taking another course....The school promotes this guy as a success which he might be in some peoples eyes but it is not due to UoP. He can't even finish a degree from a paper mill.

How the flock is Currington still on the payroll? He acts like the place is his personal Match dot com. Pretty soon we will have to open a

daycare center to house all his illegitimate children. Everyone knows what he does! He is a big time womanizer and uses his position to score with peons on staff. HR and management sit back and let this idiot do what he does. All of us know you don't know jack about programming so quit trying to act like you created this new clusterfk system. Salesforce built this pos so for you to be saying you built the thing single handedly, you are a poser. You should be embarrassed to make any claims because the system sucks. We were left high and dry in IT while this idiot was out doing his job chasing tail. Fire this idiot already! Keeping this moron on the payroll is a liability. Any woman harassed by this idiot needs to report him. I am sure the list is comparable to a few pages of the white pages. If anyone else has any other great things to say about this wonderful man, let's hear it.

Our Annual Halloween Party is scheduled

It is definitely a moral booster. Employees waste about 2 weeks decorating their cubes and neglecting any meaningful work. It is great fun to see the employees children scared. The tweekers uhhh I mean students scare a bunch but I am positive the androgynous leader of the campus that I am causes the most nightmares. Im so proud of myself. Its not all fun. There is also important University research being done. Manny is going to determine how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop.

In a long overdue move Jim Eickhoff has been fired. This was rumored last month on this board and is now official. Jim was Barry Feierstein's worst hire and should never have been made. He has been a disaster for the University. This bodes poorly for Rock and Chuck, who both will be gone soon as they came in with Barry and Jim. These are all employees in Workforce Solutions.

Another trip to the trough

Mid-August 18 UoP execs once again fed at the public trough to the tune of 1,055,000 shares given as grants. Since stock grants are meant to either compensate or reward people for the outstanding work they've done, UoP must be doing incredibly! One million shares at current pricing is nearly $30 million in compensation! Largest feeders at the trough: Sean B.W. Martin Grant 108,777 shares Frederick James Newton Grant 42,520 shares Timothy Paul Slottow Grant 34,096 J. Mitchell Bowling Grant 103,176 Brian L. Swartz Grant 145,632 And the grand prize winner (again) is the man presiding over the collapse Gregory W. Cappelli Grant 460,353 Great job all! We can only hope the stock price holds up till these grants vest so these hard working, outstanding leaders get the hard earned millions they deserve--oh wait...

Is this some sort of sick joke? A program to help reduce the stress on military families from an institution that, through its laser-like focus on attracting GI Bill money, adds stress to military families? What is the word I am looking for--gall, nerve, impudence, effrontery, disrespect--nope, perhaps the word is assholiness!

Desiree is a nasty person! I have no idea why Allison continues to tolerate her? The entire team has no respect for her.

She is always making jokes saying Allison is a heifer and has a crooked nose. She truly is an evil narcissist pos. How she still has a job has everyone stumped. She berates her employees on a regular basis and makes fun of her boss yet she is still employed. Why? She belittles everyone she encounters. Guess what Desiree, karma is a bltch. One day management will wake up. Continue to pretend that you are working when everyone knows you come in for about three hours a week and do nothing. Allison, wake up, this person is bad and does not like you.

Dear Ms. Joanna Acocella (Vice President Federal Relations at Apollo Group)

Dear Ms. Acocella, I am not a threat to Apollo Group. The biggest threat to Apollo Group is Apollo Group management and its short-sighted and cynical leadership. Spending hundreds of millions on lobbyists, advertising marketers, and Google Ad Sense is neither innovative nor effective in the long run. If you want Apollo Group to succeed, listen to University of Phoenix's most principled workers at every level, and retain them. Then act on what they tell you instead of harassing and intimidating them.

Going To A For-Profit College Won't Help You Get Hired The Huffington Post | By Tyler Kingkade Email Posted: 08/18/2014 6:42 pm EDT

A new study comparing graduates of for-profit colleges with those of cheaper community colleges found attending a school like the University of Phoenix or DeVry doesn't impress employers much. In fact, researchers concluded, the students would be better off attending community colleges for a much smaller tuition price. The paper was produced by the National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research, with researchers from the University of Missouri and RAND, according to the Wall Street Journal. Researchers sent nearly 9,000 resumes of fictious applicants to employers in response to job postings in major cities. The fake applicants had attended either a for-profit college, a public community college, or a local high school. According to the Journal: Employers responded to community-college grads with an interested call or e-mail 11.6% of the time, compared with 11.3% for for-profit college graduates. They asked to schedule interviews with 5.3% of applicants who had community-college credentials, and 4.7% of applicants hailing from for-profit colleges. (High-school graduates received responses 10.6% of the time, and interview requests 4.2% of the time.) None of the differences are statistically significant. The researchers told Inside Higher Ed their big surprise was that the fake for-profit college grads came so close to community colleges. Multiple federal investigations have shown for-profit colleges have higher-than-average student debt loads, have a poor job placement record and mostly fail to graduate. A recent study by The Institute for College Access & Success concluded dozens of for-profit schools had more students in default on their education loans than graduates.
