    Watch out

    Collision Instructor (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    Proswelcome change from repair shop life

    ConsIf you like being bullied by management, then, this is the place for you! There is a very cocky school director who likes to have a small circle around him, Do not speak your mind, you will be laid off by fabricated lies in your record. Advancement is not possible as an instructor, they will hire outside people instead of promoting within

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    UTI Smoke and Mirrors

    Instructor (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsI love to teach!!!! Helping others to learn a trade is very rewarding( those that choose to learn)

    ConsManagement displays constant unprofessional behavior towards instructors. I was employed for a number of years, because I believed in the training courses they used. Then it all changed when they changed the curriculum to make more money. They kept raising the tuition, and doing less as far as hands on training.
    The students evaluated each instructor after each class, and, when the kids were upset about the training
    the took it out on the instructor! Then, we would be called in for a conference about the bad job we did!!!!
    They also began to use less and less disipline to correct bad behavior( 18 to 24 year olds) Some were a joy to teach, but with no consequences for their actions, some did not care.Made for some very long days.
    The CEO makes upwards of half a million salary, plus benefits, but the employees have to fight to get maybe 4 percent each year, and that is based on STUDENT EVALUATIONS
    The icing on the cake was when they started to hire people with no automotive experience( this is an auto tech training school) to be managers and deciders of curriculum and training! Glad to be not there!!!!!!
    None of your teaching skills can be used in any other public school, so you have to start over if you go to another school, not what you are told at UTI.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey will not use it, since they know it all!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
