Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Ashworth University is a joke. I am a former employee, and speaking from "behind the lines" : Don't waste your money.

The company gives employees in Enrollment a small bonus for every new enrollment, even if the student cancels the next day. This leads to the recruiter doing whatever they must to enroll a student--even lie. They have lied about prices, about what the school can/can't do, etc. DON'T FALL FOR IT!

Then, once you're enrolled, you're caught. Even if you immediately decide it's not for you, you'll have a heck of a time getting your money back.

And if you decide to continue on, you're guaranteed to have many problems along the way, be it late responses, bad information, technical mishaps, etc.

Even then, if you somehow manage to graduate (less than 15% of Ashworth students make it this far), your degree probably won't be accepted in most traditional schools/work.

Technically, the school is accredited. But, that piece of paper is essentially worthless in the real world. You'd be better off saving your money and attending traditional high school or community college.

Back in October, the company laid off 17 workers, including me and people who had worked there 17 YEARS, single mothers, etc. They took us individually into a conference room, told us, then advised us we were to leave immediately--not say goodbye to anyone or tell anyone what happened. And we were not allowed back on the premises--ever.

What a company, huh?

Please...don't waste your money.

You're just angry

AUTHOR: Helwa44 - (United States of America)

I am sincerely sorry for your job loss, with the recent downfall in our economy you're not the only one and speaking as someone who has been in charge of hiring, firing, and managing employees - the reasoning for telling you to not say goodbye or tell anyone what happened is to prevent worry and distress in the office. Not allowing you back on the premises ... you have no business there once you're done working there.
