    I worked at ITT Technical Institute part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It was fun working with the students.

    Cons

    Low pay, curriculum is poorly designed (too much material to be covered in a given time).
    Students are recruited and signed up for programs for which they do not have the prerequisite requirements. For example, many students enrolled in the Technical Mathematics course are not even proficient in high school level algebra.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop recruiting students that are not qualified to begin their course of study just to get their money. It's a very cruel practice, since prospective students are lead to believe they can
    succeed when it's clear from the get-go they cannot. The recruiters need to take into consideration the knowledge and abilities of the people they recruit, and only bring in people who have the necessary background to succeed.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Overall, great group of people to work with. Very professional, focused on doing the work the right way. Good curriculum, but extremely slow in implementing any IT projects - and usually not tested thoroughly in advance that damaged customer experience.

    Cons

    Executive management took a great company and absolutely ruined it. Made some very poor key decisions that doomed their fate.

    I have been working at ITT Technical Institute part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Small class size, Most students want to learn. good team work between instructors. Good place to get some classwork experience then try to move on to a higher paying job at a public college or community college

    Cons

    introductory classes have a lot of know shows. you are accountable for retaining students. lots of time spent in bureaucratic paper work.

    Current Employee - Educational Recruiter in Rancho Cordova, CA (US)

    I have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Salary is decent at average of $35k to $40k a year. Schedule, and set up High School presentations as a recruiter, and capture the attention of students who are already portraying interest in furthering their education. FU and invite them and their parents to school and tour them and sell them on attending the school. Once interested, you pass them on to the testing area, and onto the next school and same o same o. Half in office, half in field, indepent for most part.

    Cons

    Salary only, no extra incentives. (PERSONAL EXPERIENCE Some managers can micro manage and ruin your chance at feeling comfortable. They tend to hire drill instructor types to be managers, so tread carefully. If you receive Top Outside sales representative for the whole district, they can lose your record of employment and your earnings that show it , so I recommend holding on to anything they give you, because they wont. If your supervisor mistreats you and you try to go over their head to complain, they find out about and make your office life a living hell. Then when you give a two weeks notice, you look like the bad guy and they conveniently lose your award. Not everyone is like this, but this was a major con to a position I loved the best, and was unable to keep, or return to. )

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a heart and put the HUMAN back in HR.

    I have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The abundance of technology at your every beck and call. Awesome support system. Pay is tolerable.

    Cons

    Not as much training as I would have expected, but they are sure that you know what you need in order to do your job well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least pay what the median is in each state. The cost of living annual raise that you get doesn't mean much.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time

    Pros

    Loved working with the students, loved my coworkers. The staff and faculty genuinely care about the students.

    Cons

    Management is very disorganized. Unfortunately it seems the company itself only cares about the money. Terrible atmosphere, not encouraging or positive from upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure your staff so that good employees are not lost. Listen to your employees without threatening them with termination. Care about your students.

    I have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked there for almost 6 months and there were no pros to the job itself. I did really like some of my co-workers.

    Cons

    schedule requires you to work until 9pm 2 days a week; work on weekends and holidays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire people who give a damn about students and not just making numbers
