Sacrificing Education for Profit
UTI is on the government crack down/shutdown list. They are going to close down this diploma mill. I guess moving student education to you tube wasn’t the best idea after all. Especially for a trade school. You should of listened to your... — read more

Anyone watch the townhall?
I don’t know ... we’ve been through so many bad years. For the first time in a long time, things feel like we are moving in the right direction. Anyone else feel that way? Other thoughts?
How does this make you feel? http://collegemeltdown.blogspot.com/2020/11/a-letter-to-us-department-of-education.html
UTI shares downgraded
Looks like more cost cutting is in store. https://seekingalpha.com/news/3617406-universal-technical-institute-stumbles-in-trade-argus-downgrades-to-hold
So, how are your campuses doing after COVID?
I see some of the locations have about a 50% return rate. Ours is a ghost town. Seems like management is busy rearranging the chairs on the Titanic. How is your location doing?

How exactly does this work (during a 2nd wave of Covid19)?
Am I the only one who thinks people in corporate don’t have FREAKING clue what they’re doing ? They are only good to tell you what’s changed for the millionth time , but won’t do the leg work with you. They make last minute adjustments for this... — read more
Being part of the solution sure beats being part of the problem
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... — read more
Online Curriculum Last Ditch Effort
There is very little interaction between instructors and students in Google classroom, It wont be long before every student realizes that the online courses which are really hastily made videos are the only way for UTI to keep the money flowing. It's... — read more
Layoffs are here.
Well, it was good while it lasted. UTI has furloughed a ton of people. These jobs will not come back. It was good they kept a bunch around while this whole thing olayed out but the end for them is here. Sorry folks.

We should all be grateful
"Seems like we should all be grateful we have jobs unlike so many who are losing them during this time. We won’t have a school (jobs!) if we don’t have revenue. Instead of whining, help! It’s for the students, not the VPs. If you hate your job - or... — read more
Organizational Restructure Needed
I herby do not consent to the release of the video I was forced to record for Universal Technical Institute. I was video recorded against my will and do not want UTI to use my subject matter expertise for profit or for any other purpose... — read more
UTI’s VIP’s Recording Subject Matter Expertise
I’m sure all of UTI’s Vice Presidents, Campus Presidents, and Directors are at work filming their subject matter expertise today.
UTI Wikipedia's Page Cleaned Up
Well, well, well. Looks like someone went on the UTI Wikipedia page and deleted the controversial history of UTI. The "Lawsuits, investigations, and sanctions" section was taken out on May 10 2019. I wonder if the person who deleted is a UTI employee... — read more
COVID-19 and UTI's lack of preparedness...
It's interesting how UTI is not taking the recommended steps to have employees work from home or closing any campuses. Does that mean they do not value the health and well being of their staff and/or students?

Happy New Year UTI, here's your review and your whopping .29 cents an hour raise!
Have you heard how well things are going? How all of our hard work paid off? That, together we made a difference! I am so tired of hearing how well we did last year, how valued we are and what a difference we made in 2019! The ship is turning! We're... — read more
How many more will leave?
Here at NTI by my count, we’ve had 10 instructors voluntarily leave this failing company in the last year. Most of them were here 10 years, some with over 15 years. When will executives get the message that this company is rotten to the core. How is... — read more

Is Kim’s resignation a good or bad thing?
Exiting the company
I'm sorry for all those unfortunate people that have been let go. It's going to be okay, I went through UTIs layoff a few years ago and made it just fine. I doubt the people who got let go would post here during their severance payout. When I... — read more
hearing a few people let go across the company mostly jobs eliminated and to be picked up by someone else doing double or even triple duty.
Now that we are aware of the changes in the severance packages, are the layoffs Thursday or Friday!?!
Upper management don't learn by their mistakes
It appears to me upper management don't learn by their mistakes. I see they have hired another financial officer. Problem is these people are not productive people. As long as I worked their they have always been top heavy. Instructors are treated... — read more
so September is slowly creeping up. Any updates on the Rif or anything?
What happens in September?
I’ve heard that something is going to happen in September? There are so many rumors floating around. I’ve heard another big rif but not sure who or where? Anybody heard anything?
It's almost that time of the year folks! Did you get your "UTI Madness Bracket"?
Staff leaving in staggering numbers? Directors being the only member of a department? Students underachieving and unhappy due to an overworked Instructor staff, outdated, broken training aids, leadership with their heads in the sand, can't stop the... — read more
