Everest Institute / Complete ripoff

1 GA, United States Review updated:

We got student loans totalling $15, 000 because we were promised help with job placement. My wife completed her class, but has not gotten any job referrals, leads, or any other assistance. We probably are stuck with the student loan bill, but if we can help deter anyone else from wasting their money on these scam artists, it will be worth it. Go to a real accredited school. Thank you and be careful.

    Unfortunately it happened to me also. After being unemployed for almost two years, I decided to consider changing career field.
    I went to Everest for my MIBC (medical insurance billing and coding) and was promised help in find employment. But the only help I got from this place was referral for a front desk positions paying around $9.00 to $10.00 p/hour, where even after going to a couple of interviews, I was told to my face that I was either over qualified or did not enough experience.
    I told the career coordinator at Everest that to find a front desk position paying that salary, I did not need to spend $15K for it and did not need any help find one because I could have gone to work in a supermarket!
    ** The teachers at that school are a joke and most do not teach anything. I regret having consider attend Everest Institute, now I am stuck with this huge debt and continue with no job whatsoever!

    I totally regretted ever attending Everest Institute after now having to struggle looking for a job BY MYSELF! Reality is that in life, you're always going to have looking for a job for yourself and the best job opportunities I've seen so far are looking for experience. Everest Institute or ANY Institute for that matter CANNOT provide the experience you need.
    Experience comes over time and Institutes only offer programs that only last for a couple of months and not just that. They don't offer the REAL hands-on you need !
    You need to get out there in the real world and EXPERIENCE the work. So sad to say but Everest Institute could only MAYBE help you get an OKAY job. Nothing too big. You can't really get a good job without REAL hands-on experience in the real world.
    It's a harsh reality that people should really think about BEFORE signing the papers..

    Oh and by the way.. My loan is actually 17, 000 dollars :-)
    Also, people looking at the field of dental assisting are better off getting trained in a dental office for $12/hr starting off pay than having to have a 17, 000 loan on your back while you're also waiting a long time to find a job as you're frustrated trying to figure out how you're going to pay that loan off HAVING FOUND NO JOB!!
