"I attended Quest College and received an Associates Degree in Business Administration. This school is very unorganized and non professional. I tried to get physical custody of my Degree and had a problem because they said I owe money which I didn't. One person would tell you one thing and someone else would tell you something else. The director of the school came to talk to our class and when one lady asked a question he told her, " If you don't like it just don't come here." Very unprofessional. I would not recommend this school to anyone."

"Well it will be guaranteed that Career Quest will respond to this because they troll these sites trying desperately to do damage control. Everything that has been said regarding the fact that this is nothing but a rip off facility. One that suckers you in with grandiose promises, They feed on those that are down and least able to afford the time and fees of a regular college institution. They get you so far in, then you can't claim shenanigans to get refunded, and then they change policy. In my case they too went through teachers that didn't even know the subject matter, encouraging us to "GOOGLE IT." They also altered certification process demanding that the certification for IT be done when the class ends despite that CompTia (the certification people) ask that you do interning hours in the lab before doing so. They also lack the equipment needed to teach the basic functions of the class, hoping for the donation of students personal equipment. They promise a starter tool kit that is all of about 3 dollars of crap, you pay for books that you don't keep and then are recycled to the next class where they pay for the same books again. Talk about illegal practices. There is no integrity with the school personnel. We protested the changes and they reluctantly met with us and then blew off our demands. The "DEAN" of IT has NO EXPERIENCE IN THE FIELD, knows nothing of the curriculum nor requirements. He is a key holder and Dean, for the purpose of probably one of the few people that might have a college degree of any kind (though not in IT), probably liberal arts or something. DO not waste time, money or effort. They are nothing but a succubus of a business that disguises itself as a school. Oh, and I was reading some other comments that mentioned how they graduated with honors. You get 90% scores just by showing up to class. EVERYONE that gives half effort can get 95%+. I ended up on a National Honor Society from them. They wanted more money for my certificate from them. If you go to this place, they position you in jobs that are mostly below market wages. Computer tech for $12/hr? Come on! Health field people were going out at $9 and $10 per hour. The job placement office consisted of them cutting out want adds or printing them from websites. No serious efforts are made after they have your money. They also will ask you when you are signing up for you to give them a list of friends that might want to come there too. They are worse than hard pressure health club sales scams. Yes I am a fool for falling for it, but I was desperate at the time. Not a day now that I don't regret going there. 9 months I will never get back. If I could score them less than 1 star I would! STAY THE HELL AWAY! DO NOT SIGN. DO NOT DO IT"

"Career Quest is an awesome place! You can tell just after walking through the doors that they truly care about their students and employees. It is a wonderful place to attend if you prefer a smaller class size. Instructors are there to help in any way that they can and help students to achieve their goals. There are many fun programs and activities Career Quest holds to help their students. If you are interested in going back to school, I highly recommend going to Career Quest!"

"Very deceiving, I was duped into false promises, I was 6 months in the course, the school claimed a company endorsed career quest and hire their graduates, I called the company liquid web to see if they really did, it turns out they never heard of the school or ever hire their graduates. I felt scammed and the school took too much financial aid from me and wanted me to pay them. Immediately left and canceled all my loans going to the school, their degrees and certificates are nothing but paper weights and don't mean anything, this school is a all out scam, beware!!!!!!!!"

"They prey on the poor its a sales team after your there for awhile they pretend not to know you. I told a university were I went to get my cert they laughed I had to do the program all over again at a community collage. Paid 20,000 rollers for a useless cert. Buyer beware!"

"The school is awful. Basically 16,000 dollars just to have something to add to your resume. The "instructors" only have an associates degree, most of them have no field experience. They hire students to be instructors right after graduating. You take nothing from the classes. You only get a week and a half for each course. The student teacher relations are horrible. Admissions lies to you. They basically just want to take your money. You never get the help you need. And while you may have a certificate when you go into a job you will have no idea what you're doing and may end up losing that job because of it. My suggestion, go to a university like ITT Tech. It may take longer but you will be thankful in the long run."

"This place is a joke. It is barely accredited. Your credits will not transfer anywhere, and employers in the area know the bad reputation of the school so they will not hire you. You will pay less to get ab actual degree from a community college. CQLC is a FOR PROFIT college - aka they are a business that sells education. They get your money at the beginning so your success is not important to them. The classes are thrown together and not taught by qualified people. You have to use outdated equipment and work amongst endless OSHA violations."

"I enjoyed the small class sizes. When I needed one on one help I got that help. It was amazing to enjoy small class sizes and helping others learn around you. Also we had a small study group made by our class mates and invited others that needed help."
