I graduated a "straight A student with perfect attendance on 06/10/2010. My first job started at $10.00/hour.
Worked my butt off outside in the summer heat and winter cold and snow for 9 months.
Only to be offered a 5% commission base raise (same as offered to a part time worker who was an auto mechanic). Moved back home and got a job in Pawleys Island, SC in the summer. I was laid off after two months.
They told me I "needed more training" and that was while making a whopping @8.30/hour to start. At the end of 2014 that company closed the Pawleys Island location. The Marine Mechanics Industry was already slowing down since the 2008 recession and Marine Mechanics Institute knew it. Still, they lied about the money making potential.
Now I'm $37,000.00 in student loan debt for a piece of paper that says I'm a "Certified Boat Mechanic". I want to join with the rest of the majority who want to sue to get their money back.
The school has my email but never followed up as promised to check my progress. I was scammed.
Reason of review: Fraudulently misled.
Monetary Loss: $37000.
Preferred solution: Full refund.
