Student & Graduate Reviews (26)
DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL. ALL THEY DO IS MAKE PROMISES TO HELP YOU FIND A JOB BY THE TIME YOU GRADUATE. YOU HAVE A BETTER CHANCE GOING TO YOUR LOCAL BODY SHOP AND GETTING A JOB AS A HELPER. THE ONLY THING WYOTECH DID FOR ME IS TAKE 9 MONTH FROM MY LIFE AND 30K IN DEBT. PLEASE SAVE YOUR MONEY, BE SMART AND STAY AWAY. ITS BEEN SEVEN YEARS SINCE I GRADUATED AND THEY DIDN'T HELP WITH ANYTHING. AND THE SNAP-ON DISCOUNT IS ANOTHER LIE TOO.
If you go to this school you will get nothing out of it. You will learn more if you play Papa's Burgeria then went to this school. The teachers do not teach you very much and they were very rude to me. I was very upset about how this school is run and I would not not go to this school again if it was between life or death.
When I was at Wyotech it was the greatest experience of my life. The teachers are great and are very good at what they do. People will see Wyotech on my resume and see that I am a hard worker and am passionate about what I do. I definitely recommend that you go to this school.
I was so excited when I started at Wyotech. I did not stay excited long. I had instructors just give answers to the test because they did not want to teach it. Instead of helping when I needed it they stood around making bets on the next time I mess up. The job out come was a lie my resume gets laughed at for having Wyotech on it. I have been working in the medical field just to make ends meet for the horrible loans that I can not even get transcripts for. read your loan contract well they will get you there. I really don't recommend this school anything is better. Every job fair while I was there I had put I Applications and had at least 2 interviews and in all my classes I tried hard was class and shop leader studied. I have a family to support and can not hardly do that because of the loans. I just hope if anyone thinking of this school really looks in to it and ask questions to many people have been royally screwed by this school.
I enjoyed the school and the teachers. I was always in the top 5 of my class. Many people hated the school due to the strict rules and dress code, but I did not mind it. It is a school for those who are willing to give their all. If you're looking for a party spot as you go to school then Wyotech is not for you! The one thing I regret about the school is that I did not have my own project car to bring in and work on, so I just got all the odd job projects in the shop, but it gave me a wider range of stuff to learn from in cassis fab. The school offers job fairs and a ton of extra certificates you can work to get. I left the school with 6 certificates, and a job that paid $26 an hour. I then joined the navy as an aviation mechanic and received a 4 pay grade advancement dou to my past college with Wyotech. After I got out of the navy I got a job paying $45 an hour. The interviews told me the main reason I was hired was because of the skills I have learned at Wyoming tech! The school will help you find a job in many ways if you try! And they will help you find grants and loans to pay for the school and very low rates. My loan was at 1.5%. You can't ask for much better then that. After grants and scholarships I was left with $20,000 in loans. But I had them paid off in 6 years. It would have been sooner if I did not join the military, because I took a pay cut joining.
Very good school, I miss this school taught me a lot more than being a tech. I wish I could go back and learn more have work though. I like way the course are set up. I was scared to leave my parents home and go to wy but when got there I every one was nice I had friend at school and friend's at church one of the experience in my life
I went to Wyotech in Laramie and it completely ruined my entire outlook on wanting to be a mechanic. The teachers are great people and great friends. Great teachers they aren't. The school is a joke. Please do not make the same mistake I did. The administration makes it their goal to make you as uncomfortable as possible. You are forced into shaving no matter what your medical condition is. Please don't consider Wyotech unless you want to be depressed and miserable for a minimum of 9 months.
This place is the worst place you can go. When an representative talks to you about joining this school don't do it it's nothing but a load of crap. It has been the worst experience and decision I have ever made. Plus the schools instructors are not the best people they try to avoid you when you are working on an engine. Besides that if you do make the decision to go here, you are doing it at your own risk.
I graduated top of my class, and for the 30k I paid for my education, it was not worth my salary. I have always worked in automotive, but needed that paper saying I was educated, but my salary did not change. I was getting $10-12 an hour offer.... can you imagine working and supporting a fame with 12 an hour.... I left this occupation and work in sales where I make more money. To me this school is about making money, I regret attending school with wyotech and look forward to getting more in debt and attending a higher education.
If you apply yourself and try the school will teach you the basics. The elective classes on the other hand will teach you a lot. Mine was chassis fabrication and I make good money on the side welding. Just 2 months into my job I was promoted to lead tech because of the skills I learned at Wyotech. as far as cost goes it really is to much money my loans total $50,000 and when signing up I was informed it would only be 29,000. The core class not enough information electives are really hard but in the end they are an amazing learning experience.
