Universal Technical Institute - Instructor Review from San Bernardino, California

Look so far i have got good jobs out their just because im attending UTI, but theirs way more things that they are bad at, im a current active student their an they do not talk to you very nicely most of the workers their are always mad for some reason and they dont really answer any questions that you ask them, specially the instructors, most of the instructors dont care, they tell you them selves that they dont care, and money wise they always somehow managa to loose records on the amount that you have paid so you have to keep every single receipt

Universal Technical Institute - Teacher Review from Brooklyn, New York

Started going to uti back in oct 2010 graduated dec 2011 and i gotta say is was not worth it. Waste of 30 grand. We barely had labtime my first 4 classes were all in class. How am i suppose to learn what the so called teacher is teaching if theres no hands on, on what you learning. You could fall asleep and still pass the class. I suggest a real school dont make the same mistake i did. After wasting my time and putting my self in debt i became a union roofer starting 23.52 maxing out at 40 an hour instead of an auto tech who starts off 8-10 dollars an hour. UTI IS NOT WORTH 30K AND YOUR NOT GUARANTEED EMPLOYMENT

Universal Technical Institute in Houston, Texas - Worst Trade School Ever!!! Don't Waste Your Money

This is a Profit School! This school is only out to make a PROFIT and make $$$. It's a fake school they don't even care about their student. They charge more than a community college and a University. On top of it all credits are NOT transferable, meaning you only stay with UTI. It's a scam.. As a parent have been very disappointed of their attitude, no support and the education they have been showing my son. He even said it was the worst decision ever. Professor are not teaching anything in class he feels is a waste of his time. They made it seem so interesting and the top of the notch equipment and manufacturers that has yet to be seen. He should had gone to a 4 yr University. The staff act like they don't care and their attitude is unbelievable. I now been reading about UTI negative remarks I wish I would had found these before my son register there. I feel that was the wrong decision for my son. Parents do not waste your money sending your child to this school is not going to be worth it down the line. Do your research on FOR-PROFIT colleges and save your money and a year of your life! The representatives are like salesman he told my son about he was going to help him get going and have everything in order so once my son signed the contract we never heard from him again plus the information he provided for us was incorrect. We left several messages for him never returned our phone calls back. I was so upset driving up there for 4 hours and to get a lot of *** from the school that the representative didn't do his job correctly. There job is to get you to sign the application! and sign their contract!!! as long as the representative gets his money they don't give a hoot about your child or the parent. Once you sign everything, nothing but empty promises after that you are on your own. On top of it all I am going up this weekend to pick up my son because he said is just plain *** and doesn't want to waste anymore of his time their at that school. Parents convince your child to go to a 4 yr degree instead of wasting their time at this (UTI) school that is not worth the money for the education that their giving to our child. As well as parent we think about long time so they can decide later on to add or get another degree is best to go to a university than UTI. Not a happy parent at this moment!!!! Very upset and frustrated dealing with this school.

Testimonial
I made the decision to go to UTI in high school when an Admissions Representative came into my automotive shop. I had some knowledge about cars before I started at UTI but knew I needed more. UTI was a good starting point of what’s to come and learning what you need to...

Universal Technical Institute in Naperville, Illinois - UTI CHS ripping off students

If you want to start a lawsuit. Then start with the housing department in the lisle campus. The stuff I hear about CHS is unreal. Kid being charged 4K in overage bills, not having any heat in there apt because CHS did not pay the gas bill for 17 months, having four people living in one 2 bed room apt paying $540.00 per person which= to $2,160 bucks for that on apt and the apt complex that they are living in only charges around $1,100 for the same apt for ordinary residents. And then the kids state that they are being charged cleaning rates because CHS will do inspections on the apt and then charge them for cleaning and no cleaning was ever done on the apt. HMMMMMM wander who is getting the kick backs off that. So that would be a very good start for you.

Universal Technical Institute in Avondale, Arizona - What UTI is really like

Uti is honestly not that bad. People are always saying "its a scam", and thats because those are the people who never payed attention in class, who are always sleeping, always on their phones. I get that some of us have some/a lot of experience with cars before going to this school, but don't go there thinking you know everything because thats when you'll learn nothing. Some people have big heads thinking that there some master tech, but come on be realistic you don't know everything. As long as your motivated and ready to learn, and don't hang around the wrong group of people you will do fine, and actually fine a job that will make you some money.

Universal Technical Institute - Take your licks and stop complaining

I used to run auto repair shops and can't believe you couldn't handle a lube tec job I have hired kids with zero experience and they done fine and having them work with my more experienced guys teaching them the tricks they have learned from years of exp and all the short cuts I have also had tech school kids working for me that turned out to be a real asset my old timers showed them the ropes and my old timers learned the new stuff from the kids when you graduate from UTI you are a entry level mechanic you need to acquire on the job training I'm not going to turn a tech school grad loose in a shop and risk him screwing something up after you work in the field a while and learn and acquire your certifications your pay will climb along with your exp and if you can't cut it apparently you are not trying or didn't pay attention in school

Universal Technical Institute - Automotive Collision Course Review from Mcdonough, Georgia

My SON GRADUATED yhe automotive collison and repair course he was not able to get a job in his career either. The housing list they offer is a ripoff. My son was in a gated community and his apartment was robbed three times. They did nothing about it. My son had to join the military to provide a living for his family. They also had him do loans with my signature. 24K dollars wasted. I was blessed to be able to pay it.
