Bogus testimonial reviews on here

These "testimonial" reviews on here are few and far between. Most of them have been left by students who have graduated over 15 years ago, when you actually had to learn to pass the school and it wasn't so expensive and predatory. Don't rule out the fact that some of the reviews are probably left by people within the company trying to cling to their *** job with UTI. Don't let the BS fool you, do A LOT of research before you buy into the sales reps lies, because 90% of what the rep tells you is lies

User's recommendation: Don't get sucked in by the UTI lies.

The positive reviews on here are ABSOLUTELY posted by people who work in the offices at UTI. The company and it's people are nothing but dirty, underhanded snakes.

It is surely NOT beneath them to post fake positive reviews. Dishonesty is the UTI way of life.

Overpriced

Having to take out student loans to even attend this place and both subsidized and unsubsidized loans has maxed out my lifetime grant and loan eligibility to have financial aid for anything else.

User's recommendation: Don't think of going here. It's way overpriced to attend. Especially if you don't get a job in the field immediately after.

Even if you do get a job in the field, you won't be able to make the payments because the jobs starting pay is just above minimum wage. UTI is a complete scam.

Absolute RIP OFF

This company is really something else. If extreme political correct-ness materialized into something physical it would be UTI. No one within the company management is very well educated and they dont know the proper way to handle situations, so they just go to the extreme of tolerance and they will throw anyone under the bus who brings up valid, common sense based points. The management team has only gotten to their positions through the buddy system. UTI does not promote people based on merits or career tract records, they promote people based on who is my best buddy?. This company is heading down the tubes and the management that they hire isnt going to correct the issue. UTI, Exton is particularly bad with a Campus President who is only out to serve himself and an Education Director that is hated by ALL of the employees that are under her and always has been. Bob Kessler has been asked to leave (thats the nice way of saying we will fire you if you dont) from such companies as Staples and Barnes and Nobel. Bob has been a failure in all of his career positions except UTI. That is because UTI nurtures incompetence. Bob hired Rosangela DUMPster as an education director because she is weak and easily controlled by him. The education managers are only happy to have a job, but in reality, NO ONE likes the DUMPster. The instructors (who are mostly new every month) quickly realize that they are only here to collect a paycheck and the entire company could care less if students learn anything while they are there. Passing the classes is easy, they hand the answers to the students. UTI is only concerned with numbers which is mostly money, but they also have to make the student passing rate look good, so they pass anyone through the program. That is why the manufacturer programs like VW/Audi and Jaguar have pulled out of UTI. UTI is a complete joke and they are closing campuses. They started with closing the Norwood campus which will be followed by Exton and then Sacramento. Youd have to be a fool to fall for their sales tactics. It is nothing but a HUGE lie.

User's recommendation: Look elsewhere, Don't let UTI screw you !!

Yes, this is the same company as MMI. UTI runs their scam in the Marine, Motorcycle and NASCAR industries as well as automotive. Don't let them scam you.

Worst decision

Was promised all the bells and whistles . Promised everyone would want to hire me . After graduating and coming and applying to nearly all Dealers in the Los Angeles area . Every single one declined me because of the horrible reputation MMI students have . So now I’m projected to pay over 100k for loans and interest for a stupid career I don’t even use for income . I don’t know how the schools still open . It ruined my life and it bothers me mentally thinking about .

You have seen what UTI is all about, first hand. There should be a company out there that offers relief for former UTI students.

The appartment lease scams had to share a room collegiate ho

They told,me on the phone that i had to a appartment which was two bedroom. I didnt know that it would be 4 people in a 2 bedroom sharing a room for 489 a month from each student...

Bad attitude from student services

I asked for help from student services director she wasn't nice she doesn't care about any problems I explained to here.

I'm going to leave here going to apply in Lincoln tech

Also when I was in the lap I can't learn one many guys in one engine and we have to finish everything in very short time so only one guy finish everything and the rest of students just watching, I'm really upset

Years later they say I never attended....

I graduated in 1997. I literally dressed up, walked in graduation, and have photos of the day...not to mention, my degree paper as well.

Years and years later, I wanted another copy of my transcript sent to a University (yes, I have a copy of that too) so I called. The lady tried looking me up several times and then vehemently told me that I never attended UTI!!! I still have student loans to this day that I am paying on and they do not acknowledge my attendance nor graduation. She said something about a fire...lost their paperwork...blah, blah, blah...but what happened to the digital records????

UTI received loan money. They profited.

I...now have no degree, according to them. I think I should have no loans then.
