I went to Everest in Silver Spring, MD which is now closed down. I learned alot because we actually had good instructors. But I only gotten first aide/for certified. Theybdont help you find a job and jobs won't hire you from this school. It's a scam!
Absolutely great decision to attend this school. The staff is friendly, supportive, and you get attached to everyone! You have to have the mind set to be prepared for an accelerated program. Come every day! Its your education you get out of it what you put into it. Put your all into it and your results in the end are endless!!!
No academic learning or proper training. Anyone even a 13 year old can pass this course. No challenge, everyone not paying attention, missing class or leaving early. Cheating on tests, copying homework no real education at all. Worst decision of my life. What this place does guarantee wiping a doubt is a part time job with low minimum wage, debt and depression. Attend a community college the real education is there.
This is wonderful school! The tests are really tough. It forces me to learn a lot. The instructors are great, too. I know that when I graduate, I will know what I am doing and I will have the knowledge to pass the certification exam. All of these negative reviews are ridiculous! You are missing a great opportunity to learn and have a better career. I highly recommend this school. for taking classes during the day or night!
I went to Everest in 2012-2013 and I absolutely loved it. The teachers were attentive and they prepared us for the field. Made sure we dressed the right way and made sure our hair was pulled back. We had awards and attendance ceremonies to recognize the hard work we did. I only paid $50 a moth and $108 6 months after i graduated. The lady that worked with me got me interviews and even talked to me up. I've been there almost 2 years and she calls every 6 months to check and see how thing are going.
I went to Everest Institute about two years ago. At the moment I'm still without a job and huge debt. As I look for a job no ones hiring because Everests credentials aren't what employers are looking for. So far Everests credentials come from "National Association for Health Professionals", but when I apply for a medical assistant job the companies ask for credentials that aren't from "National Association for Health Professionals. In all truthfulness I have paid down some of my debt but am with no medical assistant career two years later. Career services at Everest isn't helping at all. By the way if I haven't mentioned, I'm referring to one in Houston where I attended.
I originally started at the Vancouver school , loved it and felt I was getting the best education everyday I learned something new. Then in my second MOD they announced that they were closing the Vancouver campus and moving us to the TIgard campus since going to the TIgard campus it has been nothing but disorganized and stressful. The staff refers to us as Vancouver students even though we have been attending for about 4 months now, they have different rules for us Vancouver student than the Tigard students. I feel as if our poor instructor is constantly having to change her teaching ways because administration wants us to do more book work than anything. It is all stuff we as MA's will never use.Please just don't waste your money. Its a big waste and wish I would have never applied at Everest.
This school is horrible! Once they get you in your program your on your own. They do not keep up with your progress once they get their money you are no longer their concern. Their reps are horrible with nasty attitudes and don't pay attention to detail. When you have a issue you never can get in contact with the right person. They keep transferring you to someone else. If your considering going here DON'T I will greatly advise you to look into other schools. Once they get you enrolled that's all they care about because now your stuck with them or you can leave the school and be left paying back loans and not being able to transfer credits so before you consider it make sure you have done your research
My pet peeves at this school were: Gossiping rude staff. Most computers not working missing mice. Bugs bugs bugs everytime you looked up. They accept the wrong students and by time you are finished some of you may need therapy. Why, who needs the verbal abuse from staff members and will you get upset they tell you, you are wrong and then they'll sit in offices and talk about you while you're in there not knowing you are. The place is not a happy place and this review is for change, not to hurt. You can not obviously get your points across to them so this is it. The happy song is A LIE, just as some current students. They'll wait until they've disbursed all of your money then tell you how and where they want you. Mostly everyone's adults and they will try you, no matter how much you complain I've seen it over and over and now I'm done, they're still disrespecting students. THEY HAVE NOT CHANGED AND WON'T UNTIL ZENITH EDUCATION STEPS IN AND THAT IS WHAT IT WILL TAKE!
Henry Ford Community college was a good stepping stone into a large college, not so much support or help. Everest Institute was a pay to pass college. Over priced, no support, no real degree, close to a scam.
