Student & Graduate Reviews (94)
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!!
Jonesboro Everest is the worst school I ever attended . The career service associates where horrible with finding site and jobs. There attitudes are unprofessional . I wouldn't recommend anyone attend this school with considering other options . So sad
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 problem...to all those still at this ridiculous school don’t depend on these people...they will not make sure you straight..do 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.
I began a day late on the 28th of February 2015. I received a syllabus, reading material, a backpack, IT tool kit and shirts. I did not receive my computer until February 2nd or my external hard drive (WD My Passport) until the 5th. Since the beginning of school to the present date 2-23-15 many red flags have gone up. 1. There was only one instructor for two classes happening simultaneously; which forced both classes to share part of our 4 hrs 2. The class was not geared towards beginners, as my admissions manager had said. She said “The instructor shows you everything from how to turn on the computer all the way up” My first and only class was over Linux and Mac (two separate operating systems) 3. The internet speed is inadequate to conduct classes that rely on computers to produce work and learn. I have 11 speed tests done over 6 days at various times to prove this. 4. There were no lectures or step by step demonstration done by the instructor; with exception of 2 YouTube videos. 5. The syllabus was not followed. There was a test given before it appeared on the syllabus and out of the 4 weeks I attended we only got through week 1 of the syllabus. 6. The work that was done was not able to be turned in. The instructor would not accept it until he finished his portal; which wasn’t ready until 2-16-15 and to date has not been graded. This allows no way for students know if what we had completed and studied to be correct or not. 7. February 20th there was nothing for students who were done with their work to do since there were no Week 2 handouts or labs given to us but there was a due date for the work of February 23rd at 11:59pm. (We did not receive them that day or over the weekend) 8. February 23rd I arrived at school to find out from 3 of my classmates that the Professor would not be coming back to class. He had called or texted those students to deliver the news. We sat without an instructor the entire day. I withdrew from classes today and was told that I would be liable; more accurately, FASFA would be liable for the entire time I spent in class regardless of these reasons to be billed a lesser amount. I was also told by the Director of Education that only the President of the campus at Greenspoint could make adjustments but he declined to meet with me. This situation was handled in the same accord as everything to this point has been...poorly.
I enrolled at Everest College on a whim, just a single mom looking for a way to better her career. I absolutely loved the medical assistant program, my teacher was amazing and I learned so much. The career services department on the other hand, made the process of my externship absolutely miserable. My 2 year old got sick half way through my externship, I was out for 3 days and they threatened to drop me from the program. They would call me 4 times in a row and leave me rude voice mails followed by nasty emails. They talked down to me like I was a 5 year old and were extremely unprofessional. I would repeat the program all over again if they weren't there.
