It only took three years for ECMC to accomplish what it and Obama set out to do, SHUT THE SCHOOLS DOWN. No loss to tax payers and millions in the pockets of ECMC executives all at the expense of the students and employees. Do you feel used and abused? Three more years spent at a DEAD END job. The funny thing is, there never were long term plans for the schools, just short term get out of debt plans. We were all expendable in the long run, kept moving along by lies and deception. Got to hand it to those at the top, they're really good at getting what they wanted from us.

I wish I could feel sorry for the ones losing their jobs now, but I don't. I've been waiting and hoping to see Zenith fail for three years and it was music to my ears when I heard the news in November and have been counting down the months since. Good riddance Everest and WyoTech.
Did they finally pull the plug on the final three?
Did you get paid for the three years you worked there? Did you continue to build your resume with those three years of tenure and experience? Did you not hear the rumors and possibilities of ECMC shutting down the schools? Were you free to seek employment elsewhere? No sympathy whatsoever.
I have no sympathy for op response or anyone that didn't see this coming. If you are on this board posting there were way too many warning signs even if you were in denial. Most people knew this was a failing company and enrollment numbers dwindled the last few years so why would you think this company was staying around? If you hung around thinking otherwise I seriously hope you go in to your next job with your eyes wide open. The incompetent management that they hired or promoted should have been the biggest clue that they wanted to fail.
Unlike the ignorance shown in the first response.. I sympathize with the OP s point of view. It was a 100 percent politically motivated decision. No doubt. But my hopes are everything turns out for the best for all, when the dust settles. And I'm sure it will. No more worries. Just finish up and move on.
I feel great. I think most employees knew that this was going to happen. We rode it with a sense of not really caring. We collected good paychecks and then good severances and paid out vacation. Many of us received the 60 day warn act which meant we interviewed and received jobs and double dipped from the company while we worked a better job with more money at another company. I am thankful for the opportunity financially as well as getting out from ECMC.
