Change lives through education - rewarding and challenging

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
This is a rewarding and challenging career. Helping to change lives through education requires a strong sense of why, to repeatedly look for and help new students each and everyday. Not everyone is ready to go to school, and change is never easy, even when we try to make a change for the better. This is a target driven and results driven role that is challenging and rewarding. Its amazing to see students work and what they will achieve.

Points positifs

Being a mentor, days/hours go by quickly, bigger picture

Points négatifs

Every week is a new challenge to hold your self accountable.

Good for the right type of person

First and foremost, you have to enjoy sales generally to enjoy working in Admissions here. If you don’t, this is not the job for you. Secondly, you have to think long term and honourably regarding making big money. So if you like sales but want those quick easy commissions/willing to be snaky to get them, this is NOT the place. The good parts of the job are the rewards of working with actual students to make their dreams a reality, after the first 7 months you do start to make good bonuses and the Online Director of Admissions is an awesome person who works hard and tries his very best to make it a good place to work. The college has the best Canadian online programming for its diplomas-better than other art/design universities in the country. I think VCAD has room to improve on interdepartmental collaboration, flex hours/childcare allowances, diversity in management and more cash incentives for all staff to meet short-term targets.

Points positifs

Good boss, clear KPIs and targets, leads provided

Points négatifs

Weird work hours, no paid sick days, no free parking

The worst job I have ever had.

Don’t do it. Just don’t. I come from a sales background so I was prepared to meet objectives. But this place will not only take your self confidence, happiness and positive energy, they will take your soul. It is misleading in so many ways. Zero ethics. Corrupt and money driven culture, misleading students. I was ‘recruited’ because of my skill set and previous work experience, along with 15 other individuals. The environment is ruthless, heavy micro management and the largest turnover rate I have ever seen within a company. The management has zero leadership skills and basically treats you as a robot. You are to enrol students, integrity and morals are not included in this process. Would leave at the end of the day questioning my own character and what I was willing to accept for myself in this workplace. Just don’t. You will regret it. Have standards and choose better for yourself and your mental health.

Points positifs

Literally nothing.

Points négatifs

All of it.

Stay away

Awful work environment. Lack of process. Management has no clue what they are doing. They hired 20 people at once and promised alot of stuff but never delivered on it. 2 weeks down the road they hired another 12 ppl as they were already expecting ppl to quit. It was more like a sweat shop environment. Half of the people quit within a month. The were very sneaky about hiding the covid - 19 incident. It's all numbers game that's all. All they do is micro managing. Even the manager for the wasn't happy abt his Job either as he was busy interviewing for another job while he was at work. During the training they would just try to make the job sound very fun and interesting but it isn't Was a SITH show. Would recommend to stay away from this place.

You can grow.

It’s a place where the opportunities to grow depends on oneself. Nobody will stop you but you may not have all the support either (e.g. doing research, presenting at a gallery or traveling for a conference). Teaching could be a rewarding experience because the classes are small and you can work deeply with each student’s project.

The admissions boss does not trust his team.

(Worst 8 hours of my day since last year.) Hot leads, direct calls and walk in goes to favourites. Not a place to work. College goal is to pick up anyone and let them attend their first class so they are bound to loose 30% if they decide todrop. Abusing student loans. College smells bad. Upper management is disrespectful and abusive.hire and fire culture.Stay away. Job timings alternate shifts form 9 30 to 6 and 11 to 730 and friday 8 to 4 30.

Great place to work !

I worked with VCAD for 2 years ,unfortunately I had to leave due to family transition, VCAD is a great place to work with ,excellent work/life balance, Upper management are professional and supporting their employees , I started with VCAD with little experience but through the condensed great training sessions, I was able to pick up the job quickly and improve my skills ! VCAD truly does show appreciation to their employees . I personally learned a lot and appreciated the time that I spent with VCAD.

Unreasonable management

This environment is stressful beyond belief. The management is unprofessional and is unethical. You will be expected to put more hours in, then you get credit for. you will be deducted any sick leave, regardless how much over time you have completed. Everyday, you will work with the fear, if you or a co-worker will be there the next day.. Hostile environment.

Unethical toxic place to work

No work life balance. You can work 10 extra hours in a week and if you need to leave early you still need to make up that time. Do whatever it takes to sign up students even if they are not qualified. Bully them if neededd. The goal is to sign up a student and hope they last at least 60 days so that the school makes some money. There is little to no ethics involved in this position. The training was basically reading a script and customizing it to your liking. Additional development was listening to a 9-minute Victor Antonio YouTube video during Friday sales meetings. 20% of the staff in Calgary have been fired without cause or explanation. Culture is toxic at best.

Points positifs

Decent commission

Points négatifs

No work life balance, negative / toxic, unethical
