Lincoln Tech Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (222)
I'm currently a student enrolled in the auto program at Lincoln tech union. Before I came to the school I read some reviews (good and bad) but being that the school was the only one of It's kind within an hour of where I live I decided to come here. I said to myself as long as you keep your head in the game you will still learn a lot at the school. I stayed positive for the first 5 months and now I have had enough of this place. The school is very unorganized and the majority of the students would rather play on their phone or go to the parking lot and get high. You would think this would make it better for the students who really want to learn but it doesn't. The constant interruption by students and laziness of "some" instructors makes this a very difficult learning environment. I'm doing very Well on my test and book work but that doesn't set you up to work in the field. Hands on is very minimal and in some cases non existent. When we do get shop days most of the school cars are missing pieces or can not be used. if we want hands on time, We are told at times to bring our own vehicles to do work on. I have done this before but there is only so many times you can afford to bring your own vehicle in. We buy a set of tools with the school package and then there is a tool room where the other tools needed can be checked out (if they have it). Most equipment that needs licensing updates or calibration have not had them in a year plus. we are also discouraged from doing bigger projects because if we are not finished in time the car cannot be left in the bay due to night classes needing them. I do not recommend this school to anyone who will be paying out of pocket (GI Bill, loans) or anyone with a serious interest in learning to be an automotive tech. If you need to meet some standard to continue collecting your welfare for to meet a work/school obligation for you probation or parole then this is the place for you. If you work at the school and this offended you I am not sorry, you are part of the problem. So the employes that do care and try to actually teach thank you for your time.
A total joke! Wish I had done my homework before sending my son there! Teachers tell you they will give you the grade they want to not the one you earn! Lazy teachers sleep during class! Teachers are clueless don't even know you need power to test a motor! Not only does the school rip you off but they loop you into housing that beyond rips you off! My son won't quit he will see it to the end but he would of learned more under a shade tree working on a car! DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh and don't fall for "we can help you get a job while you're here" because no they won't! They just tell you that you aren't looking hard enough!
This school is a complete JOKE! Not only is it overpriced but the staff sucks! Some of my instructors were great and wanted to teach. Most however were too busy either trying to be friends with the students or flirting with the few male students we had! How professional!!! When I had my first meeting with Ms. Wright in admissions she basically told me bc I had no previous medical experience I wouldn't be able to handle the LPN courses and would be setting myself up for failure.....funny bc when the LPN instructor saw my grades she said I should have went for LPN. The career coach called me and bothered me many times with bs. I was told on more than one occasion someone would be contacting me for a job and they never did! And most of all is the issue with billing. After my father who was paying what the grants didn't cover received a fully paid slip...lincoln tech has managed to mess my credit up and tried saying I owe $1, 100! All of a sudden today they found the fully paid receipt and have to investigate it. Please do yourself a favor and don't go to Lincoln Tech....you will definitely will regret it!
Cost way too much for the little you get from this program. Most instructors are very competent and experienced, but have to conform to the poor wannabe-college style of I struction. This should be a mostly hands-on program but was mostly paper work. Lack of trainer vehicles to work on made things even worse. You are not told that you have to provide your own vehicles to work on when you come for the tour/info session. Red Flag: They seem to be trying to sell something to you rather than to persuade you with academics. Financial aid office has you going in circles, so hope you don't have any questions. A portion of my student loans went to corporate collections as a result of an incompetent employee that supposedly quit and left the loans she was working on up in the air. Use the nearly $30,000 on an actual education at an actual accredited college or jr college (and much more)!
Everyone there is very helpful and the support is amazing. If I had any questions they did not hesitate to answer them they are remarkable. The instructors take their time in teaching you and if you are having trouble they will give you their email address or their schedule when it is convenient on helping you. The director was a big hoot me and my classmates always wanted to challenge her in saying "GOOD MORNING" she was the one she would go to every classroom and say it but we wanted to be the first on saying it first. The dean she is amazing she laughs with us and she gets involved with the schools funding. Everyone at this school are the most wonderful people you would ever meet. I am on externship and I am adapting just perfect on the skills that were passed on to me to be carried out Thank You Lincoln Tech of Brockton you have changed my life in so many ways
I feel so bad for my instructors. They work so hard yet Mrs. S. is always jerking them around and changing our schedules, is disrespectful to everyone and no one likes the woman, she is always interfering with all the instructors. She has made many reconsider their choice to even be at Lincoln Tech and they have left. She lies and talks about instructor behind there backs. She is an awful woman who is not nice and is giving Lincoln Tech a bad name.
Do your self a favor and don't attend this school . This school is a joke . Simple as that . They don't care about you at all , all they care is about their money . The teacher treat you like if you were in highschool and scream at students that are older than them . They don't work with you at all . Ms baker is the director of nursing and let me tell you this lady doesn't care about her students.She doesn't care if you time out. She's suppose to be there to listen and help you but trust me when I tell you , you will waste your time going to her . Don't waste your money on this school is totally not worth it .
Very misleading on the ability too progress in my career to RN after graduation...the fact that the credits are non transferable is very frustrating and makes the write course seem add though it was want time and money. Niue i need to stay over from scratch to get my RN because my credits from my LPN are not excepted. I should have just dinged an RN program from the beginning. Very upsetting that all that hard work means nothing in regards to career goal advancement.
This school sucks. As soon as I went in there I did not like it all they care about is money money money I dropped out as soon as possible even though I owe 3,788 . Worst decision of my life I'm only 18 . But men that school is horrible ! Teachers don't teach all the teacher do is sit back and chill and do nothing and gets aggravated if we ask questions
Lincoln Tech is a GIANT SCAM!!!!!!!!!!! They make Lies and DO NOT stand by them when asked for the proof in writing! Marc, the admissions representative told us we would get 4 certifications included in this program. LIES!!! When talking with the admissions director, Ron, he informed us Marc was incorrect and the only certification you receive is A+. Do NOT fall for this school. There are several other schools that offer actual programs and certifications and stand by them. Worst possible school. If it was the only one out there, I would rather serve burgers for life than go here.
