I am not a VP but I am an occasional liar, who's not? Not an asskisser either, just a realist who gets just as frustrated as the next guy. I step in bullshit everyday, I deal with it and move on. You like ripping UTI and they suck as a school, but you like your job? Bit of an oxymoron don't you think??? Food for thought; if we get another four years of liberalism in the oval office, your job will get a lot more interesting or maybe even extinct. These senseless posts are like a car accident, I just can't look away.

Wow, sounds like someone has a hard on for you HOT ROD guys. Good luck UTI, I'm sure closing some of your locations will help the situation, maybe some up to date curriculum would help also, Kim is the mastermind behind all of this, she will figure it out. Good luck

Finally, someone with the same feelings I have about U.T.I. After teaching there for almost 9 years I feel the same way, the "GOOD OL BOYS" club does exist, just as Fisher, Davis, Kitterman, Bow, Twitchy, oh I meant Bender, and the list goes on. You guys at the Ranch are a bunch of back stabbing Pricks, its almost like being at a dealer on flat rate, most of you Dicks don't know sh-- let alone how to fix a car. Good luck to you asskissers.

More than half. These guys cant fix cars or manage a shop. UTI has done nothing to develope their people skills. Either the staff of the students.

The incompetent campus management from the EM's to the CP are weak. At every location I have ever been to. They will never train the people below then for fear they will be better at their jobs than they are. The instructors are going nowhere. There is no advancement unless you kiss a bunch of assand fall into the "good ol boy" club. Instructor tech training? They have some good ones. NAPA, PepBoys and Carquest. Their instructors are trained by auto parts stores. Very few venture over to any of the OEM's for training. They cant hack it. Those who do get OEM training and get good at it get hired away by dealers and the OEM's. They quickly find iut that the dealers or manufacturers pay alot more than UTI and iffer alot better benifits. No reason to stay. The grass is greener on the other side. I wish I could reveal my identity here as I need a good technical communicator where I am at now.

Bummer and good luck UTI staff. You will seen get to stand in line with the Wyotech guys and the students you have shortchanged for your unemployment check.

10%? They should still investigate them for insider information. Half of those instructors wont be able to hack it in the field. Kim, you've really done it this time.

Post ID: @GGihy9w-qymw

Well, another week. I spoke to a friend that still works there. He is looking to get out. There is a nervous environment there. Something is not right.

The old guys are riding to retirment and hoping the wheels dont come off before then. The toung guys are headed back into the field while they still can.

So, any guesses to when they start cutting again?

Maybe they wont? Maybe it has gotten to the point where its not worth saving?

Post ID: @GGihy9w-qhwe

Wait for it to go up? It has been on a downward slide for 10 years. Currently trading at less than 10% of what it was once worth. It wont recover.

UTI claims no debt. What they dont mention is that they owe millions in lease agreements. I bet they owe more in lease agreements than what they are worth.

Has the stock hit rock bottom for U.T.I.? if it has, you watch all of the higher up buying it up, then they will dump it when it goes up, or should I say if it goes up? This has happened time and time again, the higher ups know when the stock is going to tank before the quarterly reports come out. In the real world, this is called insider information and is illegal or at least I thought it was. U.T.I. has been ripping off the general public for so long I cant believe they haven't been punished for it yet. Well I guess their time is coming, I hope all you money hungry a--holes go to jail and have to pay the people you ripped off back all the millions you F---er's made. The end is near.

Kim does not suck.

She and others got rich off these students and the taxpayers that have to burden the load of the loans and the defaults.

Rest assured, people have made millions off UTI and will keep making millions as long as they can before the wheels come off.

So UTI employees, take a look around.

Are there alot of empty seats?

Empty classrooms?

Are you doing without?

Save, save, save right.

How many meetings have you been to where they talk about the good times ahead? The good times than never seem to arrive. The "headwinds" Kim talks about are real but they come from within.

Anyone hear about the emails where there was mention of a RIF? They said if you save there wont be layoffs. They said that the last three times they dumped employees. Oh, it took a few months between the discussion and the dump. Dont worry though, everyone that gets out is better off than if they stayed. I feel bad for UTI. I had been associated with them for 30 years and none of this happened until the greed kicked in in 2004 or so. Its been all downhill since the. Very sad.

I talked to a service manager this week about a student he was going to hire. Well I recommended against it. He is a tough and successful manager in a large dealer and expects the techs to work. UTI has not prepared the student for work. They are not prepared to drive hard enough to succeed. The students have had success at school by coasting along and showing up. UTI makes it easy so they wont quit and that gives them a false sense of success and ability. If they dont show up with work ethic they wont leave with it either. They have failed their customer. They dont know who the customer is. They want to give the customer what they want, and they do. The problem with UTI is they think the customer is the student and the student dosent know what they need to succeed. The customer really is the industry and the industry is not getting what they need. Bunch of lazy slob kids that were trained on outdated material.

Get ready for layoffs and get ready for the end. Sorry UTI, you have some really good people but dont allow them to do their jobs.

They have up to date material. They just cant afford to teach it.

Post ID: @GGihy9w-dtyt

If Universal Technical Institute actually taught up to date curriculum they might have a chance, the Instructors that have been there a while wouldn't know what a new car has unless they owned one, now fixing that car is a different story. The Mercedes, Ford, V.W. ect. guys are teaching the latest and greatest but is what they teach is what is going on with the vehicles? Hot Rod is a waste of time along with street legal performance, the smog laws are getting tougher so that stuff is going to go away. U.T.I. pull your head out of your asses or you are going to fold.

The automotive career school is dying fast. WyoTech is operating at 20% student capacity. Over 4000 total student population in 2010, now less than 600 total students combined.

So. I hear that some of their campuses are projected to be under 50% full and some may go as low as 35%. I would be scared.

They have a lot of VP's so their turd buddys have a job that pays alot. Thats why they have so many.

VP of student expierence? What kind of dumbass job is that? I met that guy. Loser. JM you know you are.

VP of external observation? What?

VP of being a VP? Probably.

All the good people that were VP's got the hell out of there.

Hell, they have Campus Presidents. Everyone I ever came across was a dumbass. Every one of them.

35 V.P's, why so many? U.T.I. is the retirement plan for Pep Boys in case you have not already figured that out on your own. You go U.T.I. Kim your day is coming along with all of your flunky V.P's. Is that stupid bitch Stacey Kunari still working there? now there is a flunky CU-- if I ever met one. You guys should be able to figure out the last 2 letters.

Post ID: @GGihy9w-7wsv

Cant lay off VP's. Then they would only have 35 of them. Yeah, 35. The peon pep boys flunky instructors go first. Remember, instructors are just a talking head. Right Duane?

What a top heavy outfit.

Post ID: @GGihy9w-6pyo

Why lay off the instructors? start with the V.P's, if they lay of 2 V.P's they could of kept those 11 instructors. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out.

Post ID: @GGihy9w-6vgv

You people who still work there are screwed. Nobody in the industry will hire anyone from a flunky company known for ripping off young people.

Profit, Purpose, Profit.

Nobody gives a damn about the people.

Now this is what I have been saying for months now, U.T.I. is going to tank, all those instructors who couldn't hack it in the field and decided to teach, GOOD LUCK FINDING JOBS. U.T.I. has such a bad reputation finding a job will be difficult for you. To my favorites, the HOT ROD instructors, there are no jobs for you guys, hit the welfare line buddys, that's all you will get. Kim you did a good job running U.T.I. into the ground, hope your proud, oh I bet you still made out with a lot of bonuses though.
