This is the worst school ever. I became suspicious of this school after I noticed ignoring "rules" and not being punished or reprimanded. Thanks to these reviews, my suspicions were confirmed. I decided to withdraw and at first they tried "suck up" and offered an opportunity to be a "mentor" and possible "substitute teacher". When I refused, they told me the "trial" period was over. Even though school was called off 1 day, we didn't receive our books for 2 days, and our instructor wasn't there for 3 days. After I asked the financial department for an appeal, they told me that I was egotistical and that they didn't want me as a student.

Best Decision that Changed my Life!

A friend recommended me to come to Encino campus. At first, I was really scared. I didn't do well in high school and barely got to walk the stage. I went to orientation and this lady who ran the school was really funny and inspiring. She seemed like she cared about all the students and even knew my name a few days later when I bumped into her at the hallways. I think the best thing about this school is that everyone really cares. everyone from the lady who enrolled me, to the president of the campus, especially my teacher and all the directors. My teacher stayed on my butt and made me come to class on time. I was always late to everything in life but this teacher< Ms. P motivated me to get to class on time. I honestly owe to her that I got a job in pharmacy and is still keeping it because I take being on time seriously now. Career services had usesful workshops that helped me with my interview skills and resume. My career service rep, Vi, was real cool and took time to listen to my issues but also told me to suck it up and get the job. I like this school because they paid a lot of special attention to me. When i left, I knew they cared. The Director of Education, Ms. G processed my graduation papers. She was the one who always knew my name and told me to keep up the good work. I was always amazed how she knew my name. So that's the personal attention you get from going to these types of school. Yeah I know. you might get ripped off by going to vocational schools but in my case i made the right decision. I'm hired and working at UCLA Medical Hospital as a Pharm Tech.

I really like UEI because they helped my from the beginning to the end to get a job. Some folks rate it low because they were not proactive in getting the help. I also liked the teachers there because they were very supportive when I was struggling with personal problem. I recommend it if you really want to succeed.

Very Helpful School

UEI College San Marcos, CA is an amazing school. To start off the staff, the first people I met were the admissions group which were amazing, they are such nice people who are very welcoming especially A. S> who is leader of the admissions team. Then the next people i met were the front desk people , Which also has a welcoming feel to it, this is school is a team everyone works together to help one another in everyway possible. The team has helped me in more ways than just one, it helped me mature, prioritize, and get ready to start my life on the right foot. they work with you to help fit YOUR needs and do what they can to help. The school is very clean and always smells fresh thanks to our maintenance man, he keeps the place sparkling clean at all times the school is in tip top shape. Another great thing is that if a student doesnt like something, or is uncomfortable our campus president is always here to lend an ear, its always said that this is OUR school, and they are here for us whenever its needed. I would most definitely recommend this school to anyone who asked.

Horrible School

UEI college is probably the worst, if not the worst school ever! UEI college in Fresno has people working there who talk to their students like a piece of trash, rather than helping them. I would suggest if you are considering to attend a school like this think about it good before you regret wasting your money & time. I regret going there and I really try to prevent anybody experiencing what I did. UEI is a waist of time and half or even more of the people I had in my class don't have a job. Not because they didn't do we'll at school, or because there isn't none around them, but because the school SUCKS! And the people working there have no experience what so ever.

A HUGE WASTE; DON'T GO TO THIS SCHOOL

This was the worst financial decision of my life. As a single mother, I took this course in the hopes of providing a better life for me and my son. What it turned out to be was a huge financial liability that I will be paying for the rest of my life. My instructor, while knowledgeable and well established in the medical billing field, spent the majority of the instruction time talking about her family, focusing her attention on a married man who did not return her affections, allowed her "favorite" students to get away with anything and everything in class and would rather read what was on the overhead projector than actually teach what we really needed to make a career in this field. Personally, she felt threatened by me and used her relationship with others to wage a damaging campaign against me. The last two months of my time in her classroom were tough; no one would speak to me and she did not help in my transition to the real world. In short, I learned basically nothing in her class and three years later have not found a job in the medical billing and coding profession. The placement staff at UEI college is a huge joke. They are unprepared and have no real leads on where to place their graduating students. DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL; YOU WILL BE WASTING YOUR TIME AND MONEY

They sucker you in with the promise of opportunity and bettering your life. In reality they do nothing that they advertise, your left with a huge student loan, and they fail to give job placement. I wish I had never gone to this school I would've saved myself so much time, money, and aggrivation. They fail to tell you that no one will hire you without at minimum a year worth of experience and being bilingual is usually preferred. Don't waste your time.

most expensive mistake I ever made

I find it interesting to see the reviews are either 5 stars across or 1 or 2 stars at most. Obviously, UEI has been working extra hard to keep their name in good standing and why not? That's their meal ticket- tricking people into signing up and spending massive loans on their fraudulent scheme. This is what happens when MBAs sit around a campfire and figure out how to come up with the next get rich quick scheme- only at the expense of students. It's sad, it really is that they are even allowed to operate but they have figured out how to scam the system. There is in a fact a class action lawsuit and we all know those happen because everything is peachy fine at UEI, right? The 5 star reviewers are just more UEI employees. The worst experience of my life. Even the BBB is grading them A-, A, A+,. San Diego office location. Complain complain complain complain, until someone listens. Write letters to attorney general, your local congressman, the BBB don't give up hope until the crooks are forced to close their doors and find real work.

UEI too good to be true?! Sure is!

To those who are interested in the pharmacy technician program. It doesn't matter where you get your education from you will still get hired whether it be at community college or "UEI" your presence and your abilities will be the factors. Now, if you are a person that has a lot of aptitude I say just skip going to school and just buy an exam book to become certified. Yes, that's right! You don't have to pay thousands of dollars to be a National Certified Pharmacy Technician. In fact the most UEI can give you is a state license. It won't matter where you will apply to. Most employers will be looking after experience, knowledge and PTCB Certified (Nationally certified). Hospitals, closed door, or even retail could care less where you went to school but being PTCB certified will bump you above the rest as been told repetitively during class and from other pharmacy technicians during externship. Most practical things you will learn at work will more than likely be trained at where you're employed at. The only thing UEI will offer is teaching you about typical things like drugs, calculations and pharmacy procedures which can be easily learned online. During my externship I had a small training course to learn about the system they were using and how be part of the workflow that had nothing to do with what I learned at UEI. Even if there may be success stories it still ends up being "up to you" so with that kind of attitude regardless if you pay less at community college or bought a book on getting certified at least you didn't risk wasting money or picking up a loan. There's plenty of ways to get an education. Always research and spend wisely. I sure didn't it and it's one of my deepest regrets. p.s. One thing is for sure, they sugar coat everything to get students. They like to sweet talk to applicants and lie just to get students signed into a classroom.
