Opportunity to grow
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Avondale, AZJune 4, 2018
It's a good company to grow with, but not to make a career out of it. There are opportunities to move up in the organization. But the poor management seems to be in every department. Opportunities are given but little training is provided to those that move up.
Pros
Good team environment
Cons
Poor leadership

Instructor/Teacher (Former Employee) –  Avondale, AZMay 14, 2018
I went to work everyday looking forward to teaching others. The knowledge that you share makes their learning curve out in the field tremendously shorter. You know that if they come to class everyday, listen during lecture, do the labs and occasionally study, they will thrive in the field. the only down side of this company is it is a for profit school. This means that the students that disturb others by talking during lecture, or just copy the lab work of others still get to pass because they pay tuition. It's not fair to the majority that really have a passion for the mechanical and electrical education so proudly taught. It is a great place to work because you really do change others lives.
Pros
Teaching others skills that will change their lives and feed their family.
Cons
You can't fail the 10% that don't apply themselves because it's a for profit school.

good place to learn

Tour Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 16, 2018
UTI is a great place to work, unfortunately my immediate supervisor was very unprofessional, she was always gossiping and talking bad about every staff member. I loved everything about UTI but working under her was a nightmare.

Admissions Representative (Former Employee) –  Rancho Cucamonga, CAJanuary 9, 2018
Company invested in making sure that they had state of the art equipment for students. So it gave you a sense of pride when doing campus tours. They had a gym for employees and did many campus events to get to know the other departments. I loved that they had a student pantry so that if a student was hungry and did not have money to buy something to eat, they provided something to eat.

Admissions Representative (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 1, 2018
My direct supervisor is great, however he is pressured non-stop. Therefore, we are all under pressure 7 days a week.
If you want a 5 day 40 hour work week, this is not the place.
