Universal Technical Institute - 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.

I had a great time and graduated top of my class with a few soc pins. I’m only posting because I saw a few neg reviews. UTI is a door opener. The name alone will get you the interview, but it is up to you to live up to the expectations. There were quite a few bad...

I see several students complaining about the school. What I see from them is they expect something for nothing. They did not put in 100% of their own effort and expect 110% result. I now instruct automotive at a community college and I am here to tell you that...

Welcome to education for profit and a cut-throat company atmosphere. Since UTI went public all they are concerned with is money, money, money, a quality education is far down on their list of priorities.

They say different, but that is not the case. They push students through and then brag about their "student success" when in reality the majority of their students are just as bad when they graduate as when they started. This is because the instructors are evaluated, raise wise, on how many students pass their class and they have to explain why students failed. It puts the instructor in a no-win position where they are forced to push under achieving students through and make the classes so easy that anyone can pass.

Some of the instructors will high-light the test questions in their powerpoint and actually tell you what is on the test as they give the lessons. Some will even read the test to you and give you the answers before you take it. It amazes me that anyone could fail a class at UTI. The managers of the company are all a bunch of snakes, right up to the CEO and they will 100% tow the company line whether it is right or wrong.

When you speak up, you will be blown out the door. They tell their employees that they have an open door policy, but don't speak up because they will get rid of you. UTI is probably one of the most deceitful and dishonest companies out there .... Yes, it is a company, NOT a school.

Enrollments are down and their stock is in the toilet ... That should tell you something.

I wouldn't spend the outrageous money that it costs to go there when there are better options with community colleges and accredited colleges that teach the same thing. BTW, UTI is not accredited.

Let the company propose a solution

hello there is this the address and is there truly a claim possibility . i was not aware of any of this but was definetly mis guided and was very unhappy with my dealings of going to this school.

im not going to go into to much detail unless i will be contacted back but i was also trying to look up my records from the courses i took at the school. please let me know .

i actually just got done paying off my loans and i went to school in 2007 . it seemed to me as though the best part of it is some businesses know the name of the school but u recieve no certificates on anything but a 609 for mobile a/c but i never recieved that either

I went to uti houston in 2013-2014. Like others have said it was very easy.

Not.much to learn. I was in diesel industrial abd still have auto classes? There is a very big difference between the two. Housing costs were outrageous, almost 500 a month a person in a 2 bed apartment with 4 people.

For that we could have got a 5 bedroom house somewhere to rent.

Absolutely no job placement. I graduated and worked at a truck stop as a lube tech for.nearly a year then had to find my own job at a dealer as a tech and had to learn a lot that the school didnt nearly teach.

Yes, the job placement program and statements about job placement are all lies, they never found me a job, they said if I did these extra programs I would get a job paying 37.50 per hour. This is untire and a outright lie
