Topics regarding layoffs at Universal Technical Institute Inc.
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
This will be where I draw the line in the sand boys. I refuse to jeopardize the safety of my students to make sure every constructive response question is answered with a book answer key because everything in my lab environment can seriously injure... — read more
When I worked at UTI, there was an admissions pamphlet about why UTI is better than community college. One of the things I remember is that at UTI you graduate faster and don't waste your time having to take history, literature etc. I would like to... — read more
Is Kim’s resignation a good or bad thing?
I feel like I needed to start a new thread because I am starting to feel as if UTI management puppets are contaminating our posts and threads now. Is UTI that scared and intimidated by their own employees that instead of listening to us or trying to... — read more
There is no way UTI will survive with the gigantic campuses they have now. Across the board at all of the campuses, student numbers are down. The student population at the Norwood campus is around 350 or so, NTI is at 1000 give or take. All of the... — read more
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!?!
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
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?
so September is slowly creeping up. Any updates on the Rif or anything?
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
How do my students complete the lab assignments if you take my computers from my lab area? Am I supposed to allow my students to leave the lab environment to complete their lab assignments in the LRC? I hope you realize that I can’t be in two places... — read more

Got our a-- chewed by the campus president about post on this site last week.
If you sit and think about it, what past work experience do most of the home office senior executives have? Very little to none. Kim McWaters, has been there for 35 years. What sort of leadership experience did she have prior to UTI? None. Sherrell... — read more
She should have been fired 34 years and 11 months ago
Not bad. They are only losing an average of 1.9 million a month. How long can they face these economic headwinds? I thought businesses were supposed to make money! Not piss it away. — read more
My guess is by Summer. A good indicator for a given campus would be show rate, number of instructors not teaching, overall campus student count vs number of students they budgeted for, trying to lease existing space and not being able to, employees... — read more
Here we go again!!! You must take Vacation! It’s good for you! I’ll tell you what’s good for me! How about being able to take a vacation when I want! I’ve had more vacation requests denied because of lack of coverage, special events and more BS then... — read more
UTI Management is worried more about their investors than their employees and their primary customers, the students. As long as they follow this line of strategy and thinking, It's impossible for their business to turn around. It may be great for the... — read more
Does anyone know if a severance package is guaranteed? I know many employees are sticking around because of the rumor of the severance package but is there actually anything in writing or a contract that states you will get a severance after your... — read more
Cutting uniform service from Cintas but not cutting any of the useless positions at Home Office? UTI's management at it's best. Throw spaghetti at the wall and see what will stick. They are better off rolling dice.
Think about this. They RIFFED A WHOLE CAMPUS! If it can happen in Norwood, the same thing can happen to any campus at any time. Yeah many of us saw it coming, the very low student count, the trying to lease space, the moving of space and resources... — read more

Management at the top never cared, If they did, they would have fixed their severely outdated curriculum years ago. Very little if any overhead cam info in course 101, Electric fans are on most cars today course 101, No timing belt replacement course... — read more
At what point does Kim McWaters reign as CEO come to an end? Was her appointment to CEO some sort of experiment that a male dominated industry can be run by a women? She methodically removed anyone from senior management that was from the... — read more
Hearing the hammer dropped today
Good luck to our coworkers at the Norwood campus. All I can say is that at other campuses the mood is not great about the whole thing. Overall student numbers are down and that is always a constant worry. We hear it at every meeting we go to. You get... — read more
Long term employee until recently. I have seen many employees come and go at our campus. From financial aid to student services to instructors, education managers, admissions, directors even campus presidents. Some of those leaving left of their own... — read more
