Student & Graduate Reviews (89)
First off, let me just say that my teacher was nice. That's about it. I thought that I would get a decent education because they worked in the medical field. They taught the basics. blood draw, vitals, and what not. Most to half or more of the terminology that I was taught I have forgotten already. The problem is that after 8 months of schooling, I was unable to find a job. 3 years later, I still do not have a job as a medical assistant and I'm drowning in their student loan debt. im paying a 20,000 dollar loan so no one can hire me because I come from this school. trust me, ive applied to many places over this 3 year course and still I feel that these employers look down upon anyone that comes from this school. Now that its closed, I get no forgiveness on my loans while others that I went to school with got theirs forgiven. Their reason was because "everyone has a different situation". I'm pretty sure we all have the same reason and that is that our school was closed down. Why am I still paying their private loan that goes to them if all their schools are closed? why cant i keep that money and only pay the dept of education? do your research before going to any of these vocational schools because you can get the same education at a community college and will probably get a higher chance at getting a job. I regret ever going here and spending my time and money on a school that lied about their job placement rates just to steal money from people that are just trying to get their life together. And another thing, their career services sucked. They will tell you that they'll help you find a job blah blah blah. They'll help you find an externship. If you get placed in an externship that isn't looking to hire, well tough luck, you're on your own after that. You're old news after you get out of your externship because there's more people finishing and they'll be focusing on them.
There are no tutors for anything whatsoever. IT, Accounting, None. The Student Aid people tried but couldn't help. The IT lab is self paced. Spend tons of time there. All you got. Take the class by itself if you can. The Accounting has a 3rd party lab too. No tutors. The teachers are about 1/3 bad and 2/3 good that get back to you, some are very nice. They are your only help besides youtube.com and extra outside tutors you pay for. The classes are $1200 ea if you have to take them over, you pay extra. Very frustrating if you aren't used to playing phone tag and not getting answered. One teacher's phone was off. Others didn't answer. 2 did, after several attempts etc. The financial dept will take your money and make sure you give them stuff, and are patient. The 24/7 technical hotline for computer/class issues is their best suit. They answer every every every time. Free HP Probook 455-G1 computer for IT.
Everest college is the worst college. I did MIBC (Medical Billing & Coding ) from there on 2007 and still couldn't find a job. Before I join they told me that they're going to help me to find a job but after I finish my class I called them many time but they never help me. Every time I call them they ask me to send my resume and the'll call me back but they never do. I spend almost $9,000 for nothing. They just want your money that's it. Please guys don't waste your time and money on this college.
They change advisor’s and then they never notify the student that they are switching to advisor’s until you or some will notify you that have been changed to another department and that to much of a high turn over. As for jobs seeking is left up to the career counsel if they do their job which most have not or will not do. I am grateful that I had other skills that I was able to use along with my Masters degree. I work for a non profit organization assisting the disabled and homeless veterans as administrator and it is very rewarding. I enjoyed my instructors some more than others but this is higher learning and one has to be resourceful, and devoted to wanting an education nothing is given everything is earned. Make the best of your experience and just learn, and take nothing for granted.
Bad experience at Everest I had bad teacher and never recieved my Rda certificate. All that money got nothing and I had to look for my own job they didn't look for it. Also when you need assistant they never help you have to do it on your own. Don't go to Everest
Everest College shouldn't be considered as a college. You cannot move forward with your degree because most of the credits "earned" aren't accredited. Most of the "professors" I had weren't knowledgeable in the field to which they were teaching. Also, you might as well go to an actual, accredited UNIVERSITY because the amount of money you pay to go to the school at Everest for two years is the same amount you would pay to go to a 4 year University.
Well, I will start off by saying that I did let myself get sucked into the quick tongues the recruiters have. I had some troubles during the first half of my time in school, but managed to come out with a good GPA and my certification. I had received some financial aid, which in perspective only removed the steel toe from the boot that went up my butt following my graduation. I had a lot of trouble getting into a job for massage therapy, as most places that paid well required at least 2 years of experience, leaving me with the options of Massage Envy, or some other low-end massage parlor. The Education I received was well executed and very helpful, but what they failed to mention, is how difficult and almost impossible it is to get one's foot in the door with that career. The amount of hazards, and potential for being labeled as a sex offender, or malpractice for males in that field is just too risky. Furthermore, after I had finally gotten a position working for Massage Envy, I was only making minimum wage during the whole time I worked there, making me unable to pay for my debt, my bills, gas, food, ect (I literally went without food for days out of the weeks following, and a few months with no electricity.) The program needs to find better ways to help men who want to work in that field be more protected, and for everyone to be able to land a better paying position. I didn't enroll into a program that cost me about $20k ($14k currently) so I could work at a minimum-wage facility. I am very sad that I had to give up my dream of being a massage therapist because I wasn't able to afford getting my continuing educational credits I needed to renew my license. For all persons considering the program, think really hard about what you want and what you'll really get, and BE SURE to check both the good and bad reviews about the field. For you men out there thinking of going into massage therapy, PLEASE consider the dangers involved in the field; you'll be massaging people, who could easily ruin your whole career on the spot, in which you'll only be making minimum wage doing so (unless your lucky)
I am disappointed with the Everest College Board and all affiliate who have robbed so many well ambitious students of their real potentials,many of us are still lost in our shock of learning since graduation that most of the units were not properly accredited and highly marketable. I personally did well and made sacrifice whist attending to an austistic kid fulltime this wasn't fair as I expected to secure a legal job from the placement and didn't receive much help.I think we should be compensated richly, thanks
School is bad only if you don't communicate often as you should. But anyway I have learned a great deal at Everest Detroit Campus. The instructors are somewhat decent. Homework is to be done in class. However, you are being tested anyway most of the time weekly. The homework is based on tests that you will be taking. It's not like it's not part of you curriculum because it is, otherwise you don't pass tests. If you have the option of doing homework in the room TAKE IT because you won't be doing the same work anyway. There are many hands on projects to do and for me to be able to do work in the classroom is a plus, honestly because it is a lot to take in, so don't complain about the homework class because lectures do happen A LOT and you need all the knowledge you can get. So far I have to say I am satisfied.
This school is ridiculous! All they want is money. They hardly teach anything, very little basic stuff. They say they will help find you an intern as well as a job..hah. I found a site and job ON MY OWN!! I was sent on 1 interview to a hole in the wall place that only wanted to work me 2 days a week. I would not recommend anyone using this school!!
