I worked at Universal Technical Institute full-time (More than 10 years)
It is a great company
They are going low student enrollment
If you know the supervisor on a personal level you can be late all you want
No growth opportunities, nepotism, SMART is extremely outdated and VERY inefficient. Outdated and inefficient business practices, change is good. When asked why things are done a certain way, same response, "that's the way it's always been done". Poor moral. TONS OF GOSSIP, RIF layoffs are a pattern (if it keeps happening, fix it). Metric based on how many questions you ask? Employees are never even showed so called metrics. Supervisors don't even know what they are doing, no training for new employees, expected to learn everything as you go and if you make a mistake because of your lack of training and lack of a competent supervisor, forget about it.
Advice to Management
Get new management, some of the people you have in charge have 0 idea what they are doing. time in the position does not mean ppl are competent

welcome change from repair shop life
If 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
I love to teach!!!! Helping others to learn a trade is very rewarding( those that choose to learn)
Management 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 Management
They will not use it, since they know it all!!!
