As an outsider looking in with knowledge of staff and company operations, this is an ugly time. On one hand, many of the support staff that have been overwhelmed talking with students and parents during this time trying to keep them up to date as to what is next. But many of the instructors have had little work until now but continued to get paid a decent salary just to show up and put in their time. Now that does not apply to all, but some instructors were paid quite well for how much daily work was done.
Finally, the company had to make some difficult financial decisions. Revenue dropped drastically. But take notice people were not laid off. Instead they were furloughed which kept benefits in tact in hopes of bringing them back.
But some people seem to think that UTI is a bad company because of this. And it appears that many that complain here have little knowledge of the big picture. Like with any business, you are hired to make the company money. The company did not hire you so they can provide for you and your family. That is your job. A company just gives you an avenue to do so. And with many businesses that are struggling, difficult decisions have had to be made all across the country and some may business may never reappear.
So as an employee of UTI, you can chose to be one that constantly b–ches but provides no real solutions. Continue to complain about leadership and their salaries and see how far that goes. And if that is your feelings, I am sure many people would ask why you are still wanting to work there. Maybe it is time to move on.
And for the others that still have the passion, many of you have good ideas. Maybe it is time to look at ways to benefit the company which would benefit you as well. Especially now when it is not "business as usual." Being part of the solution sure beats being part of the problem.
