However, I have never been one to take someone's word and have always had to find things out for myself...thank God I did!! After the first week in class, I could tell you exactly which students would write the negatives on this site!!
UEI doesn't "guarantee" job placement, they give you an education and an extern site and YOU are on your own after that. I am almost in my fifth mod and the every student but one, six students in all, have got hired from their extern sites. That tells me that their education at UEI paid off!
If you students that are on here complaining didn't stand out in the halls or outside smoking and talk about the "effing great parties you attended" or the "effing great pot you scored" or even the "effing fight you got into over the weekend" maybe you would have got a job too. I can say that if I were an employer, I wouldn't hire 85% of you that attend the UEI that I attend because of your attitude alone. Time to grow up and start taking responsibilities for yourself and stop complaining because the school doesn't get you a job that you are supposed to get on your own. I'm looking forward to graduating and starting my new career that I know is coming soon...Thanks UEI for all the hard work you DO put into the students and for the education!
I enjoyed my time at U.E.I. Students that are bitter have not grown up and need to buckle down. I had a great experience and learned more than what I needed to know.
This school is a joke!! I sat in class for 3 months watching the "teacher" text on her phone for 4 hours. They treat the students as children. I am 32 years old and should not have to ask to go to the bathroom, and one time the teacher actually timed me to make sure I was just going to the bathroom?!?!
I owe them $300 dollars left over from the loan and they harassed me everyday for there $30 payment. I walked out on the DA class 3 weeks ago and I am now contemplating quitting! I don't even care if I owe the money!!! Whatever you do DO NOT GO THERE!!!!
I have been a UEI student since July of 2011. I have failed 3 of my Pharmacy Technician Modules, which by he way after the first failure you have to pay almost $2000 dollars to retake. My instructor has no clue what she is doing, and leaves the students to figure things out for themselves.
With the exception of the materials, I could have educated myself enough to become a Tech on my own and saved almost $16,000 dollars. When I, along with other students go to the staff in charge of student services, WE GET NO WHERE. This place is a complete waste of money & only hire people with a cracker jack education!!!!!
The school is overall trash it lack everything class are too small the people are just so rude and cold hearted they will talk about you in a heart beat that everyone from teacher to classmate and the school has no power over the people it just bad i got nothing out of UEI they spend more time trying to get you into the school then helping you.
When I came in there i was happy and joyful but now i hate it and i have trust isses now with everyone i meet thank to the school it so life killing and take a lot out of you
Take my word do not go to this school how are you going to say you are a college but in real life you are a trade school and on top of that you cant ever take the GPA you have and use it in a two year college
basically what they do is take your money and provide minimum knowledge for what you want to learn. the instructor may be just relaxing after a 1 hour of lecture but you have another 4 hours of class, instructor keeps looking at the time looking forward to the next break, basically if you want to make something out of the school yes, you can just like i did but you have to do it on your own no one cares if you succeed or not all they do is charge you 15k.
one more thing the i was on craigslist the other day looking for a job and i saw a listing that uei was looking for instructors wow...... you should have seen the qualifications maybe i should have applied
To anyone that has said positive stuff about uei. Are you guys employees or uei paid you money to say good stuff? I did not quit and I'm a graduate but thanks to these greedy people who can't even spell the stuff that they're copying, they promised job placement and all they do is tell us to look on craigslist and to call them once I get the interview so they can take credit.
I see a lot of students there as we speak today but I feel bad that they will not get anywhere. I saw my classmate looking for a job at footlocker and it has been 2 years since we graduated and I am now a security. So I'm not paying anything there since they only care about the money and not the students that they promised a job.
I attened the Anaheim campus for the MA program from August of 2010 to May of 2011. I did great, no problems there. I have a great job that I love and found on my own, no problem with that either. My first issue was that I was lectured in Spanish. This is America, I only speak English as we all should. I was lied to from the get go. I would not have enrolled had I known the truth. I though I was smart, asking only specific questions and was flat out lied to.
I wanted to be a mobile phlebotomist and was told that I would be able to get my CPT1 by taking this course as well as other skills. I enrolled thinking the more the better as far as skills go. I has so many problems with the admissions reps and the career services people making things up. They now are harrassing me at home and at work. I am be called constantly to verify my employment, my employer is not happy about this either. If you go to this school do yourself the favor of not telling them where you work or you may not have that job for long.
When i came to this school i've notice that they admission staff is ok but they aren't welcoming and act all professnional but some them aren't like the admissions rep , also very rude as well, when off school campus. So i recommend american career college because UEI college they don't tech u everything like american career college does and american career college is better then UEI college speicalize in the medical field and have all major hospitals and doctors offices, UEI college don't.
My experience at the school was ok, I was a top student, graduated with honors, had perfect attendance; unfortunatly seems that all this hard work doesnt count much. Many classmates agree that at the externship sites, all they have the students do is filing, copying, faxing, and none of the skills we acquired at school are put into use at all.
Another thing that is very dissapointing is that the schools works with temp agencies where they offer you "temp positions" paying the minimum wage. I went to many interview the school has sent me and all of them job offers pay peanuts. I have 10+ years experience on the field I have chosen, I went to school just to get certified; however, it seems when companies see that you are a recent graduate they offer you the lowest pay, having this said, I had to change my resume, the only thing I erased was the year I graduated form UEI, and found myself a good paying job!, not thru the school though, I found it on my own. I really advise for recent graduates to do the same, otherwise you will find yourselves in a dark tunnel I recommend the school, just not the carrer service center
