Instructor (Current Employee) – Huntington Park, CA – January 15, 2018
A typical day at work is welcoming the students every morning. Making it a fun place to be, where we become a family in the classroom. We help each other out morally and sometimes financially. It is important to get every student to class, and sometimes they don't have the transportation or the funds to get there. As an instructor sometimes I send them an uber or give them gas money. Students help as well by giving each other rides or helping out with bus fares. During the 7 month program we become more than teacher and students. Sometimes my job is to be a counselor and keep encouraging them to continue with their studies. I don't let them give up. It's satisfying to see my students graduate and get hired at the completion of the program despite their hardships and struggles.
MA Instructor & Med Office Specialist Instructor (Former Employee) – Huntington Park, CA – January 15, 2018
One of the problems I have getting over is that there are certain instructors who have carried on affairs with other workers and the students have caught them. Including finding nefarious activities in my lab and when it was brought to managements attention nothing was done to the instructors.
If you are not from one of the majority ethnicity or close to certain management personnel then you have a less chance of obtaining a higher position
You have to scrounge around for basic office and student supplies
The people at the school were great, corp not so much
Education Director (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 12, 2017
This company has a lot of micro management going on at the corporate level. They have a tendency to change things very quickly, without looking at the long term issues. They will term people at the drop of a hat if they don't feel you are moving fast enough even if you were not the one that created the problem in the first place.
Work Study Student (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – December 8, 2017
As a Federal Work Study Student at UEI i had to learn to be adaptable to any situation or need that might be asked of me. I had to keep track and file packets of students current and past in a organised manner so that anyone would be able to utilize the file cabinet.

They only care about numbers for their bonus the school president is the rudest person on earth. six people left in my short time at the campus. Please dont work here

Substitute Dental Instructor (Current Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – October 15, 2017
only part-time - no benefits - the instructors get docked if a student doesn't come to class or doesn't wear the correct uniform - it was rewarding when there was a student who wanted to learn and succeeded in their new career
Medical Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – San Marcos, CA – September 18, 2017
Pros: great place to work if you want to make a difference in the lives of students. Management is focused on improving the quality of life for both students and faculty through the development on curriculum and their staff.
Cons: Accreditation and programs within a for profit school continue when students can find gainful employment. unfortunately this was difficult for the medical assistants that were in the program as the medical assisting job field is highly competitive. This resulted in a closure of the medical assisting program. In short, job security was not stable.
