Everest College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (89)
Everest and Cor. online are not good schools, I would not recommend them to my enemy. After asking my course instructors many questions about the course, I got sick of getting the same copy and paste answer, refer to your course material. Sometimes I would ask different questions and get the same copy and paste answers. I actually started asking my high school teacher for help because the Everest instructor was no help. I also was promised the work was at my pace and I could turn in work at any time during the 12 week term, only that was not the case the instructors were making the rules and deciding what was graded and how much to take off for assignments. Not all instructors were bad but none of them were on the same page, there were different rules for each class, I just feel after 72 credited hours of hard learning that I was doing more work teaching me than my college that promised so much was teaching me. I have taken screen shots of students coping and pasting my work in class discussions and the Instructor say, "excellent work!", This would make so angry some times. Then they sent out letters saying they were raising tuition 5 % and books were now going to be Electronic Books, SO you mean to tell me that a E Book cost more than a Paper back book with shipping and handling and printing and you want me pay more for something that is not real? I did not sign up for a school who raises tuition half way threw a bachelors, changes from paper books to e books with any warning( If I wanted E books I would just get on Google books.) I got three weeks into a term without even knowing that the school changed to E books. I had to call the school and ask them where my books were. They told me, "we changed our policy and we use E - Books now it should be in your student user interface. They did this with out any warning. Like a said I would not wish this on my enemy. Also course instructors make discussions based on race, religion and base opinions not from a education stand point but from a what ever they fell like or believe stand point.
This school is nothing. They are full of lies and have you paying all this money and dont even help you with any jobs afterwards. But they constantly blow up your phone and expect you to pay. How can i pay if i have no job in the field i went to school for. This school is very poor and should be shut down. They lie way too much. Constantly changing the pay of your tuition and etc. I wouldnt recommend this school to anyone! I would tell them to run and never look back!
IN 2012 I ATTENDED EVEREST COLLEGE ONTARIO CALIFORNIA AND SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED THE MASSAGE THERAPY PROGRAM. AS AN OLDER ADULT THE EXPERIENCE THERE WAS WELCOMING A TRUE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT WITH A WIDE ARRAY OF AGES. AFTER DISCOVERING THAT THIS FIELD LIMITED ME AS A SINGLE PARENT WITH HOURS AND DAYS OF THE WEEK, I DECIDED TO RETURN EVEREST AND TAKE THE MEDICAL BILLING AND CODING PROGRAM. MY CURRENT INSTRUCTOR IS AMAZING SHE IS HELPFUL AND PATIENT AS THE ENVIRONMENT IS EVER CHANGING. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS COLLEGE TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR A SHORT TERM SCHOOL GOAL FOR A LIFETIME OF EXPERIENCE.
Instructors are good however financial aid is horrible. I have been here for 2 semesters and for both they placed a hold on my account even after submitting correct paperwork it took roughly 60 days for anyone to do anything. I will not recommend this school to you keep searching for a better school and also read in papers its a ponzi scheme as well and they were selling off but wasnt notified at the time of enrollment but the school failed to tell me this as well. very sneaky and very very unprofessional! and just a fair warning there is a campus in my state but they decided to put me in a campus on the other side of the country. When they send stipend checks out it takes almost a month to get from them to you as they dont use tracking numbers or direct deposit of any sort. they put the check in regular mail and ship it off its non sense!!!!
I graduated from Everest.Its been 2 years and I still could never find a job.Everest agrees to help you find work but their just lies.All they want is their money! Which they ain't getting crap because they don't deserve crap!I would never recommend anyone to go to this school! Waste of my time and diploma.
I am very disappointed with Everest Institute (Marietta, GA). Don't believe that they have jobs awaiting for you after graduation. First they can't keep adequate staff so therefore you're going from counselor to counselor. They lie and say they will help you find employment but then when the time comes to find a job, they give you all these stories about all the other schools that they are competing with for these jobs. Why didn't you tell us that before you got our financial aide money! DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE! I have been out of school for over a year and yet to find a job. I have had three different counselors and none have been any help. I don't think they care their just there for a paycheck. DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE! The whole time you're in school there was always a staff member smiling in your face but as soon as your out of there, Good riddance!! I wouldn't recommend it unless you're already working in this field but just need a diploma.
They suck you with the belief they really want to help you better yourself. My first instructor was great. She knew what she was talking about. Half way through our second mod she was fired. The other instructor was a really nice lady but didn't know anything about coding. That was what we were there to learn. We ended up generally teaching ourselves. The Claimgear computer system is a joke and had glitches and wouldn't work half the time. They have been cleaning house in the Career Services, Admissions and Instructors. Not one that I started with is there any longer. What a huge cluster.
When I first started at the Everest in Chesapeake VA 23320 I was extremely excited. I came to the school and they gave me a tour and when you enter the school there is a board up of some of the people who have gotten jobs after they graduated. I was very impressed at that and that made me more excited about attending because I wanted to be one of those individuals. I aced all my courses and ended the school year with a 4.0 GPA. . I was an ambassador for my high academic scores and also had perfect attendance my whole school year. I'm writing this review on Monday June 23, 2014 and I'm still jobless!!! Even with all of my Great academic achievements Deans list, Presidents list etc. I still have no job. Everest is a terrible school i went several times after i graduated to do mock interviews and to get change around my resume to make it more appealing to employers. I would always have to pop up at the school because my career rep never answered his phone and never returned msgs or calls. BRAD MITCHELL is an example of a bed rep and he needs to be fired!! Every time you call the school you can never get up with this man! And when he did it was only through text msgs no on the phone conversation at all. This school is a job. Now I'm back working a retail job trying to keep up with my monthly student loan every month which i can barely afford to pay. People please take my advice and either go to a community college or go to a university and not Everest University!! A real school where they take pride in helping there students meet there goals of being successful. Have you ever wondered how many of the employers who work at Everest went to a Everest college?? NONE!! they all went to universities and community colleges that are accredited schools!! This Everest student loan is just another bill on top of my other bills! so I basically just dug myself into a deeper hole. $17,000 I HAVE TO PAY BACK!!! The reps schedule your appointments back to back so when you meet with them they are rushing you out of there office so they can meet with the next student. Take my advice and take your money else where please people don't end up like me! Employees look at Everest students as a joke!
After graduating on the honor roll and with perfect attendance, I was still not able to get hired. The school doesn't show any interest in you once they get your $20k. Pretty much give you a stack of phone numbers of places to call that they pulled straight from the internet and say good luck! Such a joke of a school. 2 years later, unemployed and in debt for the next 15years. Save your time and money.
My program at Everest is wonderful!! The program is intense and was very fast paced, but well worth it in the end and the instructors are so great and put so much heart into what they do! I was able to get a job within two months after leaving my program and two of my best friends were hired as a Dental Assistant and a Medical Assistant shortly after they graduated. They too love what they do and love the offices and the people they work with. We get so spoiled by the doctors we work for! Lunch every day, Coach purses and Tiffany baubles as gifts for birthdays and holidays, use of their summer cottage for our families. I have a great job and I am loving life, all because I chose to go to Everest!! I was also a work study for the Career Services Department during my time as a student, so I saw how hard they worked and how much heart that team put into trying to mold students into hirable candidates. I would say that any negative comment you read regarding this school comes from a graduate that is just plain un-hirable. Someone that didn’t listen to the advice of their Career Representative and has poor interviewing skills, spotty employment history, and is just plain lazy and doesn’t network themselves! These are the people that I always overheard complaining!
