Mission: To provide quality, accessible, affordable, professionally relevant programs in a continuously changing global society.
I worked at Grantham University full-time (More than a year)
When I first started it was a really chill work environment. We had to call our students, complete our tasks, make sure we were being timely with emails. However you wanted to manage your students was up to you. Basically your hours were up to you, as long as you worked 40. Vacation was accrued per hour but they were flexible with letting you take it in advance. Daily huddle meetings, all coworkers were nice. Team oriented. Games, picnics, Royals games, plenty of employee appreciation. Free education for employees. Upward mobility to mentor, team lead, manager, or lateral moves to other departments are possible. CEO/President was really nice and made himself available to employees. Getting to work with veterans is really rewarding.
100% online for-profit. Feels like a degree mill. Doesn't always feel like ethical work. Things began to go downhill around the end of 2015, goals were harder to meet, portfolios were getting larger, pay raises weren't happening. Lay-offs started in spring of 2016. The work perks began to fade. On the day I was let go in May of 2016, so were 12 others from my department, including my boss who had been there 14 years. The week before us there were at least 30 others. I know many people that are still employed who say the freedom of the job is completely gone. All work & no play. Completely micromanaged now.
I applied online. I interviewed at Grantham University (Lenexa, KS (US)).
Standard interviewing process. Phone screening with the recruiter followed by initial interview with supervisor and follow up interview with team members. The recruiter and marketing team were both very friendly and transparent during the interviews. It would have been a great opportunity - just had a better offer from another organization.
