Topics regarding layoffs at University of Phoenix

Can we talk about the SRM debacle...

Good grief. SRM for enrollment....HORRIBLE. My productivity is completely shot. It is NOT user friendly for enrollment AT ALL. Makes you think though. Were all the IS3 creators laid off, fired, quit? Again, another, great, upper management decision.

Here's why this is happening

Massive, blind loans given to anyone with a pulse. And big shocker, they aren't being repaid. Yeah, that would be because much of the money was spent on partying, drugs, and Xbox's... read more

More layoffs

On a call this week P. Cohen said and I quote, " there will be cutbacks we are not making all of our goals". The budgets/quotas are not being met so there will be more layoffs. If you are at a teach out location there is no reason to keep you much... read more

More University of Phoenix layoffs this week?

It was mentioned that layoffs that started last week will continue into this week. Anybody knows if this is true and if so, which departments will be hit? This whole thing has me so worried that I barely slept last night. I wonder if we will ever... read more

Call news organization in your city

If your laid off contact your local news org and put UOPX on blast. UOPX is trying to avoid as much negative press by not making the layoffs public. Investors and students have a right to know. Call Joseph Flaherty at Phoenix New Times. Google your... read more


The ACBSP visit (business accreditation) did not go well. I wonder if that is why there were so many layoffs in the School of Business.

One of my favorite memories...

Was when our most uptight executive enrollment advisor told me, that if I don’t get a Masters Degree at UOP, it would be the biggest regret of my life. I knew it would be a waste of time, I took one class and dropped. It was a joke. I watched two... read more

Let go

I was just let go. My numbers are down and I don’t like enrolling students just looking for pell check. I’ll miss my team members but not my moron of a manager. Farewell.

VP Gives Notice

The VP over the QC and Single courses has given notice to leave before the end of December. She was the last big supporter of the QC. I guess you ERS will get to contact new enquiries. Or better yet, go to an automated system where students sign up... read more

One day of training for SRM. Nice job VPs

APPARENTLY Salesforce is going live for a large portion of us in Enrollment on Monday, December 4th. It was supposed to be the 11th. Enrollment was told HOURS AGO as I post this. Another fail by the VPs. Nice job VP. Thanks for throwing Enrollment to... read more

What's left at UoPX?

Does anyone have any current numbers on enrollment, number of campuses? Sounds like the situation gets more desperate by the day. And it won't be surprising if more whistleblowers come out before they leave. The Phoenix brand looks like toast...

And UOP fails again

Genesys(a MAJOR system for you non-UOP folk) rolls out today for a lot of us, and just like always, it immediately fails. I've Never seen anything run smoothly here. Bravo UOP. Bravo. You never cease to amaze me. It still shocks me our doors are... read more

Two more months using these faulty operating systems and UoPX will be toast. Just a small pile of crumbs blown about in the educational industry. A memory discussed when former employees gather. A monument to short sighted greed. A textbook book... read more

Va is dying

nobody knows which way is up. Demanding an SLA of 1-2 days when normal is 7-10. We have a leader who barely emails us, still doing her old job of classroom operations and blackboard. They just force production and VS file counts. BLITZ hours are a... read more

Tenured employees layoffs

Staff were notified yesterday that their last day would be 11/24. Many were tenured employees with good knowledge base of the systems and past business processes. Found this in an older thread, is this true? Haven't heard anything about tenured... read more

Bleak future

Vocado will be fully implemented within the next few months. What does this mean? More student escalation, more write offs and fewer employees in the long run. Does it function properly, of course not. Do they care, of course not. They have turned... read more

What has Vistria done?

Has anyone noticed a difference since Vistria took over UoPX? Any thoughts about Tony or Marty? any thoughts about what Obama thinks about University of Phoenix now that Vistria has taken control?

With all the scandals about University of Phoenix and the military community, how are they still enrolling more vets than any other schools?

FA Help Desk "Downsizing"

A handful of FA help desk reps were let go today. Seems it was out of nowhere. Don't have too much details at this point.


Amazing how fast a post is removed when a VP is ashamed of their actions. Guess they need to show how important they are.


Who Cares anymore? Really? The upper management is making decisions to fill their pockets and prepare Uop to be sold again after Apollo Global is split from UoP. Who cares about quality? Shove it! Who cares the temps to perms will always be temp to... read more

A Little Help

In Enrollment, who has been trained on the Genesys system that is planned to start Monday the 6th of November? Some are wondering why have I not been trained? Has the start date been moved? Are the trained employees staying while the not trained one... read more

University of Phoenix could rise again

I taught in On-Ground at University of Phoenix for many years. The first third of those years were utterly delightful...great students who really wanted to learn and put hard work and enthusiasm into completing their assignments. I was proud when... read more


Typically UOPX layoffs occur before Thanksgiving does anyone know if more campuses and learning centers are closing? At last tally we declared 36 locations as "teach out" is there more?

So many instructors are being deactivated now

Phoenix Connect has many recent posts about instructors being deactivated. They have been there for years. I was there for 11 years. The reason: not enough students. The plan: cut the higher scale instructors and save a few bucks. I did what I could... read more

Can't fail students anymore

I used to teach there for 15 years (2001-2016) and the last 2-3 years things got out of control. They did not allow me to flunk students and demanded that I changed grades for certain of them. Once, I had an evaluator who came into my classroom and... read more
