Everest Institute Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (109)
Yes it can be a good school, and no it's not a good school. only some of the teacher's are good and the rest are bad but, most of all it's the way they run it.
I go to the Las Vegas school and some of the office personel are over work and have no help so they get far behind in there work, like putting out report cards. For example I got my report card 2 months after my 1 st semester.
There are other problems like lack of leadership. But for the most part it's a ok school. I like the small class size like 4 to 10 in class room that a + for me. By the way people who point out grammer or misspelling in post are wrong for doing so,is that all you guys can come up with. I guess so but it's the student body who make the most out of any school even if they say one thing and do a nother.
They do alot of that there both the office and student body. Dont forget it is a school to make money so there will always be room for fruad in some cases not saying there is but so far I have not seen any but, only listen to ,and read people complaints. Yes my spelling is off and my grammer is bad but I can say this EVEREST has made me a better person.
From where I was before I started to now it's like night and day. Look I know they dont offer a job after you graduate but they can help you look for opens and it's the stundent that f's that up because they just dont care they dont come to school and when they do all they do is wine.
I attended the Everest Institute in Kalamazoo,MI for Medical Assisting and received a great education. It was hands on training from the very first day. TB tests, follwed by injections the second day, and venipuncture on the third day.
My instructor was wonderful, tough but she prepared me for my my externship. The only complaint that I have is that I didn't feel we received enough front office training to go along with the clinical training.
I have an Associates from a community college and have taken additional classes at the local university toward my bachelors, but I wish I hadn't wasted my time there and had done this years ago! I much prefer the hands on and more personal training that I received from Everest Institute.
I wonder how many people complainig dropped out the first month? Our class started out with 22 people and within the first week we were at 15 people and by the second week we only had 14. That was fine with me, more time for the rest of us.
This isn't for everybody, it's very fast paced and very much hands on right away. But I really believe that if you take this education seriously and study that you will get out of it what you put into it.
I made that one call to Everest Institute and when I went in a spoke with a recruitor I was promised A fullfilling carear as well as great pay. They told me I could start out anywhere from 17$ to 20$ an hour and I soon found out after enrolling that that was I lie.
They promise people a life changing oppurtunity, but all Everest has done for me is put me in debt, made me realize how low an the "pole" I am. I have been appling for jobs as a medical assisstant for months and no one will hardly give me a chance maily because I attended Everest.
The only job that would hire me was only willing to pay me 8$ an hr. Everest is a waist of time, they are a crooked educational system who only wants your money. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA I was the president of their Amassador brogram(which is a student government/ peer helper organization). If I am struggling finding a job I do not understand how any graduate can find a job. DO NOT GO TO EVEREST
If you didn't go there, they why are you on this site bashing the people that did? By the way...I guess those 2 masters didn't teach you spelling either. Grammer?
I possess two Master's degrees from different state universities and I have no vested interest in Everest College.
reading the reviews about Everest (both positive and negative), I am alarmed at the spelling, grammer, punctuation and sentence structure mistakes. I can only suspect that the people making these comments cannot read very well either.
Perhaps the problem is not with Everest, their faculty or facilities, but it is the students themselves who need a better education at a lower level and a better educational foundation prior to attempting the rigors of an advanced.
I went to the Everest Institute on Dearborn. It was all good and fun I made many friends, and my instructor was and will continue to be the best instructor at Everest.
However, once you graduate they don't follow threw with their promise of finding you a job and when you keep insisting the staff starts to act like they have no obligation to help you. Its really sad that they would do that to people who rely on them to do something better with their lifes. I mean once you graduate they do give you the education you need to get the job you want and you do have to put some leg work of your own in finding a job, but still they should make that more clear to people who want to become future students.
I also made a poor decision and attended that horrible school and I'm still paying for it literally! Unlike the genuis who said that most of us were playing around I graduated with honors. And my wages are being garnished for a "student loan" that was supposed to be free. Don't do it. It's not worth it and they don't help you find a job at all. Someone should stop those trade schools from ripping off unsuspecting people of what's to come. I graduated in 05 if only I had been warned...
i went to everest in crosslanes, wv it was a joke i made alot of friends, and my instructor was amazing. better than the other ones there. she taught us everything we needed to know. the school is a joke you have to pay all this money back, for what NOTHING they dont help you get jobs. as soon as you graduate they could care less about you. DO NOT GO TO EVEREST SAVE YOUR MONEY&TIME!!!!!
I worked there, don't waste your money. It is not worth it, go to a place that you can get a degree that will help you in life. There are other good schools for the same diploma or certificates. Run away...fast!
Hey, Current student at the Everest Cross Lanes, WV campus. Where do I even start? I take electronics and the electronics course is divided into 10 modules. 1-10 in order according to them is the way to graduate, but seeing as how the school is becoming financially strapped from imbeciles running the facility myself and my class mates are unfairly thrown into classes that we've never been prepared for to suit their population needs.
Upon joining I was told that I could take the degree I'll be getting from this place and only to find out colleges give you ZERO READ AGAIN ZERO credit for your degree and want you to take the entire 4 years over again.
This past winter there were times that I was unable to even see the lines on the road and yet they still keep school open giving us the altimatum that we either show up or are counted absent. The reason being that all of the descision makers are day-time staff, so after they get home they could care less if I wreck and die on my way to their pre-school redundant "institution."
Recently we were told that they'll be extending the days I'm supposed to be there to 5 days instead of 4 per week, even though I was told this was to be my schedule for the duration of my time here at this school. They didn't even have the decency to dig out the legal documents that I signed to show me where it says they're allowed to do that in the first place. It really warms my heart to know that I have to spend EVEN more money now on a weekly basis just to go.
I can tell anyone reading this with the utmost honesty and sincerity that as soon as Everest gets your first 6 months tuition they dump you to the curb. I can't believe how badly I'm in debt now over this place --even worse it's looking like if I can even manage not to wreck this winter and can afford the gasoline it will cost to attend an extra day per week that after I graduate they won't find me any decent work.
From the bottom of my heart I pray that no one else makes the mistake of feeding your money to these dishonest bafoons. Also remember how in the commercials they promote smaller classes so everyone gets more personal attention? CRAP, a mod or two into my schooling they even fired an instructor making the classes even bigger/harder to get any help out of.
I'm in a class right now with nearly 30 people and I can honestly say there's nights that I can't even turn in my "in-class" assignments for a single teacher having to go prove every circuit/calculation of everyone's work.
AM I GETTING THROUGH TO YOU YET?!?! You would be better off using your money as wallpaper, making confetti, giving to charity, or even burning it. They've scorned me for the last time, every waking moment of my life will be devoted to networking against these tyrants. Take a stand, make a webpage--fliers, whatever it takes to humble these meager children. We put food on THEIR tables so they can treat us like dirt, it's time to put a stop to it for good.
