The instructors are unprofessional. They bring their problems at home to work.

Just because you are provided with an education does not mean you are going to graduate with the adequate skills to work. The reality is you need to work in a shop next to techs that have been working on cars for a long time.

I was a mechanic for total of 6 years, Infiniti for about 2. (No longer work on cars.. Moved on to something else)

Let me tell you this... Save your money... You are better off buying a bag off *** and a case of beer everyday for the rest of your life than paying off your overpriced tuition, buying tools with the pay check that isn't much higher than minimum wage. You are going to need about $4,000 at least in tools.

If you have kids (not that I do) you won't be able to feed your family.

UTI's ads are FALSE ADVERTISEMENT!

They project the IDEA to you that you are going to be ripping engines apart all day left and right everyday. You won't.

You are going to be dealing with headaches. Getting screwed over on warranty pay and have fun with the PAPERWORK.. Which they have promised you in their commercials that you won't have to do. Working on cars is not fun. No real mechanic will tell you it's SO MUCH FUN!!! Unless they are on prescription medication and/or drunk.

Several mechanics told me to GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN.. So I did, and I'm glad I made that decision.

You might be thinking to yourself that cars are your life, and this is something that you really want to do. I understand your passion, because I love having my toolbox in my own garage. I would really consider other career options but if you really MUST work on cars than start by working a shop and learn from other techs. You will learn more than you will at UTI... You you won't be billed $35,000. Think of what you can do with that money.

REMEMBER: UTI is a CORPORATION.. THEY WANT YOUR MONEY. Your failure is not their problem.

When I was in high school I was a porter at Friendly Ford. After seeing the industry and career options, I knew that I wanted to work in a dealership. UTI was an easy choice to get the training. In fact, the dealership advised me to go to UTI and take the Ford FACT...

Join MMI, waste 1.5 to 2.5 years at technical college, bounce from dead beat job to unappreciated workforce jobs while you're struggling financially through school, get graded on attendance and wonder how some people even get to walk across the stage because they've slept or barely skated through classes. Just like any other college, there's dopers, slackers, and the stinky kids, and the rare person who's going to excel at mechanical stuff, if he ever lands a job.

Graduate job placement= a joke.

Write your own resume and job hunt yourself. Employment Services must have had someone else help them land their jobs, because they couldn't have found it by themselves.

I graduated a "straight A student with perfect attendance on 06/10/2010. My first job started at $10.00/hour.

Worked my butt off outside in the summer heat and winter cold and snow for 9 months.

Only to be offered a 5% commission base raise (same as offered to a part time worker who was an auto mechanic). Moved back home and got a job in Pawleys Island, SC in the summer. I was laid off after two months.

They told me I "needed more training" and that was while making a whopping @8.30/hour to start. At the end of 2014 that company closed the Pawleys Island location. The Marine Mechanics Industry was already slowing down since the 2008 recession and Marine Mechanics Institute knew it. Still, they lied about the money making potential.

Now I'm $37,000.00 in student loan debt for a piece of paper that says I'm a "Certified Boat Mechanic". I want to join with the rest of the majority who want to sue to get their money back.

The school has my email but never followed up as promised to check my progress. I was scammed.

Universal Technical Institute Program

Problems with payment

Back in 1993 I fell victim to a magazine ad. I was into British bikes and often the instructors would ask me basic questions any person would know if they knew anything about a major player in the motorcycle industry.

I finished the program and because I did not finish a program for Suzuki- I owed MMI $106 dollars. I spent my GI bill paying these lowlifes money from my 12 years I spent in the service of my country. I still owe the government for loans for these people. I will fight these people until my dying breath, and I will contact my congressman or Senator for relief from a debt I paid many times over.

Don't screw up like I did. They do not care if you are a veteran- it's all about the money.
