UEI College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (216)
Well let me start off by saying when I first started in December 2011 I was anxious to be starting. The pay was affordable for me and everything went great for the first 3 months until a switch came with teachers, this situation with not having a permanent teacher has caused confusion and for some frustration. Its difficult to be assigned different teachers every other day of the week.
All in all this school is good and although they have some issues that need to be worked on I still would recommend this school to those who are motivated to become something more in life. But for those who have nothing else to do but to just come to school and make friends and cause chaos should obviously NOT register. Cause there are a few of you including teachers that need to redefine their attitudes. So yeah thats basically my view.
I would not recommend this school. They force graduates to take jobs that are not to the students best interests and then yell and discipline their employees who agree with the student's refusal to take the position.
Admissions lies through their teeth telling potential students there are jobs out there but there is nothing in this soft ecomony. Admissions will also enroll anybody in the pharmacy program without the background checks needed and tell students it's not the school's fault if the students are denied their pharmacy tech license.
Everything is blamed on the student and not on the greedy management. Who would want to attend a school that doles out lies left and right to both employees and students. They have no integrity or professionalism and how can you learn or trust the school where they are so desperate or staff they are hiring former students to do career placements when they have no in the field experience themselves. Save your money and look elsewhere.
UEI College is not what people say it is. I mean the parking is bad but the staff are not as bad as people think they are. They help you in every aspect and do everything they can to help you.
I honestly think that people who write bad reviews about the school have never saw an admissions rep. or even stepped on the campus. I learned a lot and even got a JOB at a DEALERSHIP upon my GRADUATION DAY.
I signed up an february.I was actually sucked into doing it while applying for mcdonald online.My instructor was great very.good teacher but I guess he quit before me and my fellow classmates went to extern....well straight to the point the rest of the teachers dont know what they doing...career services dont do.there job right. They pit me in a bad not very clean sight...
i missed my graduation ceremony and was notified day after that I missed my ceremony that school.is literally breaking some health codes they have desks in front of emergency exits if there was a fire how we.going to get out...then half of the employees are very rude. I call my coordinator all the time and he dont help.at all he just says to.go to job club. For any recent graduates
I.recomend not to wait for the school to help u go out there and look an ur own becuase you will be a sitting duck if u do. I dont recomend this school.
I have to say i dont agree with the majority of these reviews i go to uei in van nuys right now and my career service coordinator is the best my teacher is wonderful im in my 6th module and i know that no matter where I go for my extern im going to get hired no 1 can get a job for you have to do it yourself so for all the people saying how horrible the school is maybe its not the school maybe its you..... REFLECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had to help out the newer students with their studies and hands-on work and was even going for their "mentorship" program, which is considered something like 'honors' in their school. I ended up having a decline for that mentorship thing because apparently someone had taken a homework sheet I threw away without my name written on it and it was considered cheating.
Now, almost two years since my graduation in May 2010, I have gotten only 4 pharmacy tech interviews and no job. Knowing I had gone to another college before this, I now owe $24,000+ on loans and am currently unemployed. If you're considering going to a "for-profit" college, I suggest you do some research before you get sucked in and stuck with debt for the rest of your life.
UEI IS ONE OF THE WORST SCHOOLS THEY SAY THAT THEY WILL WORK WITH YOU AND WORK AROUND YOUR JOB AND THINGS BUT WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT THEY DONT THEY DONT HELP YOU AT ALL. ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS IF YOU SHOW UP SO THEY CAN GET PAID THEY DONT HAVE NO TYPE OF UNDERSTANDING AND THEY CAN CARELESS ABOUT YOU.
THIS SCHOOL IS UNDER INVESTIGATION AS WE SPEAK. I HAVE BEEN HERE FOR FOUR MO AND HALF THE TIME WE DONT EVEN HAVE THE TOOLS IN LAB TO LEARN WHAT WE CAME TO LEARN OR THE TOOLS ARE BROKEN AND NEVER GET FIXED. I REALLY DO NOT SUGGEST ANY ONE TO COME TO UEI IN JACKSONVILLE FL
It's one of my worse experience ever!!!
Staff preaches "Professionalism" but 99% of them are completely unprofessional, if you need to discuss an issue there's no where to go, they bounce you from desk to desk for hours and when finally someone sits with you, they promise to research for the solution and a phone call back within 24 hrs and nothing happens...not even the phone call.
Material given in classrooms (teachers theory, answer sheets for test, coding exercises, etc) its all outdated (doesn't match with the book editions given at the beggining of course). CAREER SERVICES IS THE WORSE! They don't place you in good intern sites, many times you have to find your own site, they don't really assist you finding a job...IT'S HORRIBLE!
I attened MBIC in San Diego. I put in a lot of work and graduated with honors. The school is a joke. The staff is a joke. They have no idea what is going on in their school. I was never contacted by the extern coordinator. I went to class at night and the staff would leave before I could get in to see them. They did not help me in any way. They tell you from the satrt you need to find your own extern. They say they will do what they can, which isnt much. Classrooms are full of unprofessional people, young and old. Half the people there arent there for an education.
I Graduated out oct. of last year, graduated with honors,and as i type this review i still have NO JOB!!!.I don't even hear from these goons at all,it was always me going to them! And of course it's the same BS every time i was there,i busted my ass off studying hard and did what was expected of me.But these fools in the career services they could go slip in a lake!!Even my instructor who was one of the best told me that i have to stay on them,but why should i this is what their getting payed for!And hell yea of course i've been out there on my own looking for work!! DON'T BOTHER WITH PLACE!! GO SOMEWHERE ELSE YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID!!
