In your opinion...

If Corinthian was the most sleazy and corrupt of all 'for-profits' and if ITT is almost as bad, who takes the third and fourth place?

How low can wages go? How about $3 per hour?

Apollo Education Group and University of Phoenix can continue to cut labor costs, especially as it grows globally. How low? How about $3 an hour?................................

Directors work people, I have seen this with my own eyes.

I wonder how I apply for one of these positions. It seems the qualifications of a ball park hot dog tosser / ... read more

Directors and managers are a big joke!

People in positions for 10+ years don't even know what the floor is like. They complain when they have to take a call more than once a week. Many ask advisors how processes are done because they have no idea. All of these people need to be cycled out. Giving them a new title just stagnates the ... read more

A place which represents higher education yet half of the managers hold nothing but a high school diploma. Six figure salaries for people with

no teams. Black's who are complete imbeciles put into positions of power who hold a clear bias agenda against anyone who is not black. Managers who push case closure over quality and true review of student accounts. An employment pool of nothing but fat and disgusting vomits trolling everywhere. An ... read more

A major setback for APOL.

Article on the failure of APOL leadership and the expense involved--having to pay to go BACK to the old system. "Apollo may be required to pay Pearson as much as $5.6 million over the course of a full year to abandon its Adaptive Math Practice system, which perhaps gives a sense of how costly those ... read more

Family Guy episode 5/17/15

Stewie has his laptop taken away and quips, " I can't be without my laptop, how on ever will I get my law degree from the University of Phoenix". Hey, idiots, degrees from UOP are store bought idiocy. LMAO. Employers laugh at your degrees, dumbarses.

Is UOP next?

ITT in California is prohibited from enrolling any veterans using post 911 benefits going forward. It's expected that UOP and EDMC schools will be choked off from VA funds this summer/ fall. Bye UOP--you frauds are finished.

Thank Godness there are lots of jobs in Phoenix so I got employed right away but I have to say:

Elaine V. & Ryan H. Are tied for WORST manager ever! Both no nothing and do nothing. Ryan should come out of the closet and Elaine should learn something about the military. Both are horrible at their jobs. Sad

Loves a challenge?

Swartz leaves APOL to join Zulilly--a company that has lost 75% of its value in the last year (high of $40, now hovering around $10). Is he that good? Does he love a challenge? An alternative hypothesis-going forward Zulilly (even in its current state) looks better than APOL.

Just 2 Cents

Dear President Tim - here is my opinion: You can appoint and hire all the provosts, VPs , etc you desire and will not affect change. The current directors and managers are from a culture where anything goes and have been in place for too long. They do not have managerial experience, but rather ... read more
