Remington College Reviews - Certificate in Pharmacy Technician
Maybe some people see this school as horrible but personally i love Remington and the instructors!! You can not blame a school for your failure... It is all about your dedication to getting the job done!! I maintained a 4.0 my entire 13 months as well as perfect attendance and when i finished they landed me job.. I started here as a technician then promoted to Lead Technician and now Assistant Pharmacy Manager.. If i could do it all over again I would definitely do so!! Of course the student loans are rather high .. about $15,000 i owe back and i pay about $160 a month back!! This school was amazing!!!! I also make well above the average technician!!
Looking back at this choice to go to this school I SEVERELY REGRET IT!!!! No one at any of my jobs has gone to school for this job they all got on the job training which at the time I didn't even know wasn't necessary for doing this job! I wrote Remington corporate office a certified letter about how dumb our teacher was and how super unorganized she was with all of out certificates for us to take our board test and THEY DIDN'T CARE ! They already had their money so why would they! Do yourself a favor and go to a REAL COLLEGE!!!! This is just a for profit place and your credits aren't even transferable!
The professors don't care about the students. They make you do a lot of assignments that don't teach very much, and they talk down to all of the assignments. If you have extenuating circumstances that conflict with homework or the ability to attend that are out of your control, they hold it against you. You end up pulling your hair out on some assignments trying to meet their expectations. I have to work six-seven days a week to cover my living-expenses, which leaves me at my witt's-end by the time that I get to school, and I'm always worried about meeting expectations. Ms. G. knows her material, but is a horrible person who doesn't give any breathing room
I went to Remington in north Houston for pharmacy technician. The classes were suppose to be small which weren't and sometimes we were left with no teacher. I was also told that I would get a free test which I didn't and once I payed over 100 for my test I couldn't pass it...why? Because more than half the stuff on there wasn't taught to me. Nothing but waste of my money and I was left in dept because I couldn't finish paying.
Whatever you do, do NOT attend Remington college. It was a complete waste of time, effort, and money! I did not find a job in the field that studied until a year after I graduated and even then I hated the job. In class we mostly just watched movies and wasted time. We hardly ever opened our books at all. Now I have a huge student loan to pay back, and it was all for nothing. DO NOT attend this school please!
I went to Remington to try and get my certification for pharmacy tech. The teachers were not much help. My classes were suppose to be small for better one on one teachings but they weren't. They promised me a free certification test after i finished the program which i never got. But they sure were eager to get their money one way or another.
