"They change advisor’s and then they never notify the student that they are switching to advisor’s until you or some will notify you that have been changed to another department and that to much of a high turn over. As for jobs seeking is left up to the career counsel if they do their job which most have not or will not do. I am grateful that I had other skills that I was able to use along with my Masters degree. I work for a non profit organization assisting the disabled and homeless veterans as administrator and it is very rewarding. I enjoyed my instructors some more than others but this is higher learning and one has to be resourceful, and devoted to wanting an education nothing is given everything is earned. Make the best of your experience and just learn, and take nothing for granted."

"Bad experience at Everest I had bad teacher and never recieved my Rda certificate. All that money got nothing and I had to look for my own job they didn't look for it. Also when you need assistant they never help you have to do it on your own. Don't go to Everest"

"Everest College shouldn't be considered as a college. You cannot move forward with your degree because most of the credits "earned" aren't accredited. Most of the "professors" I had weren't knowledgeable in the field to which they were teaching. Also, you might as well go to an actual, accredited UNIVERSITY because the amount of money you pay to go to the school at Everest for two years is the same amount you would pay to go to a 4 year University."

"Well, I will start off by saying that I did let myself get sucked into the quick tongues the recruiters have. I had some troubles during the first half of my time in school, but managed to come out with a good GPA and my certification. I had received some financial aid, which in perspective only removed the steel toe from the boot that went up my butt following my graduation. I had a lot of trouble getting into a job for massage therapy, as most places that paid well required at least 2 years of experience, leaving me with the options of Massage Envy, or some other low-end massage parlor. The Education I received was well executed and very helpful, but what they failed to mention, is how difficult and almost impossible it is to get one's foot in the door with that career. The amount of hazards, and potential for being labeled as a sex offender, or malpractice for males in that field is just too risky. Furthermore, after I had finally gotten a position working for Massage Envy, I was only making minimum wage during the whole time I worked there, making me unable to pay for my debt, my bills, gas, food, ect (I literally went without food for days out of the weeks following, and a few months with no electricity.) The program needs to find better ways to help men who want to work in that field be more protected, and for everyone to be able to land a better paying position. I didn't enroll into a program that cost me about $20k ($14k currently) so I could work at a minimum-wage facility. I am very sad that I had to give up my dream of being a massage therapist because I wasn't able to afford getting my continuing educational credits I needed to renew my license. For all persons considering the program, think really hard about what you want and what you'll really get, and BE SURE to check both the good and bad reviews about the field. For you men out there thinking of going into massage therapy, PLEASE consider the dangers involved in the field; you'll be massaging people, who could easily ruin your whole career on the spot, in which you'll only be making minimum wage doing so (unless your lucky)"

"I am disappointed with the Everest College Board and all affiliate who have robbed so many well ambitious students of their real potentials,many of us are still lost in our shock of learning since graduation that most of the units were not properly accredited and highly marketable. I personally did well and made sacrifice whist attending to an austistic kid fulltime this wasn't fair as I expected to secure a legal job from the placement and didn't receive much help.I think we should be compensated richly, thanks"

"School is bad only if you don't communicate often as you should. But anyway I have learned a great deal at Everest Detroit Campus. The instructors are somewhat decent. Homework is to be done in class. However, you are being tested anyway most of the time weekly. The homework is based on tests that you will be taking. It's not like it's not part of you curriculum because it is, otherwise you don't pass tests. If you have the option of doing homework in the room TAKE IT because  you won't be doing the same work anyway. There are many hands on projects to do and for me to be able to do work in the classroom is a plus, honestly because it is a lot to take in, so don't complain about the homework class because lectures do happen A LOT and you need all the knowledge you can get. So far I have to say I am satisfied."

"This school is ridiculous! All they want is money. They hardly teach anything, very little basic stuff. They say they will help find you an intern as well as a job..hah. I found a site and job ON MY OWN!! I was sent on 1 interview to a hole in the wall place that only wanted to work me 2 days a week. I would not recommend anyone using this school!!"

"I’m going to start a petition against Everest career service team in Jonesboro,Ga...I don’t care if im done with them or not I still have 11,000 in loans to pay this school that did nothing to help me...I still have friends that are trying to finish just like I did and I will do whatever I have to do to make sure they are completing this program..I didn’t have help from nobody in that school when it came to my extern...they stated they have all of these different sites but she continues to send multiple people on the same interviews and don’t care if its two days before the day that we are originally suppose to start extern...if it wasn’t for a friend I wouldn’t even have a job right now...I did it with a classmates help not Ms.B. nor T. nor any of those other people up there...first they told us we are able to look for our own sites but then when we find our own sites its a all those still at this ridiculous school don’t depend on these people...they will not make sure you your own thing and don’t let them tell you that you cant go to whatever site you want...if the site tells you they will except you Everest will get a contract its no hassle to it if they tell you they cant they are just being lazy...but this is the trick to the whole school even if you are not satisfied with their service you can not drop the program because YOU STILL HAVE TO PAY....IM SO DISAPPOINTED WITH JONESBORO,GA EVEREST CAMPUS"

"I went to the school in Bremerton. The teachers were very nice but HORRIBLE at their jobs. It's basically a self taught course for a certificate you don't even need to do the actual jobs. They will come at you mercilessly for the useless tuition. My advice is to stay clear of this terrible institution, you're much better off using wikipedia to get the skill sets they teach, honestly. On several occasions the "counselors" pulled me into their office and tried to coach me on professionalism, they had nothing but pompous and arrogant attitudes and were honestly quite useless. They do a lot of flash and pizazz to get you to think you're actually getting an education but you're not. Don't end up like me with a useless certificate and $16,000 in debt, it's just not worth it."
