    Admissions Reps - big pay, big expectations

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Best Technical college for Automotive--Hands down!! This is the only school many Auto manufactures (BMW, Mercedes, Nissan, etc)will work with. If your child doesn't go to UTI for automotive--his training wont be any more than that from a community college. No need for a college degree to make alot of money in sales here.

    Cons

    Big pay--big expectations. All the sales pressure that you can expect from a high-paying outside sales job. Despite government regulations, they manage to "hold your feet over the fire" monthly to the number of students you enroll. Hit your goals--or hit the road!!! I hit my numbers but had no time for life. Absolutely no work/life balance. 7 days/week is a normal expectation for this job.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good People to work with!

    Cons

    Company has transitioned to the blended learning model, half in lab on site and half on computer at home.. Since we were told the business model is not going back to the old “all on campus “ model after the Covid emergency, I feel like I can no longer work here. The nature of learning auto repair skills is “hands on “ in my opinion.

    It’s a paycheck, don’t waste your career here!

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Some great coworkers, M-F on the most part, 9-5,

    Cons

    This place is broken, management is lost and from the campus to the home office, no one knows how to fix it! Tired, unimaginative leaders. No advancement opportunities. Benefits are minimal. You get the sense they’re going out of business any day now. there has been so many lay offs in recent years it’s as if your just waiting to be let go.

    UTI has lost

    Nov 1, 2018 - Executive Team Leader in Mooresville, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great people in the trenches. Some leaders are truly invested in making their team successful and positively engage with their crew. It's an amazingly rewarding feeling to see a student through to graduation. People want to help.

    Cons

    The 70 million invested from an outside company has not been used wisely. Executive leadership has panicked and consumed enormous amounts of time with meetings due to McKinsey group coming in. Core values have been removed. The biggest hit of all is TRUST. while it's true that the regulatory environment has put an enormous strains on most of the school, upper management has taken advantage of that change by micromanaging the hell out of every single task of the day. Many employees have to account for every moment they are on campus. so much to the point that if they are seen talking in the hallways with a colleague or doing something outside of their job, then they are seen as wasting company time and resources. Many executive leaders will say they care about you and then throw you to the wolves to save themselves. It's a common thing across the nation at UTI. Leadership also leans on the fact that they were able to get the job done and be very successful when they were in your role. However, the last time they actually did the job was before 2011 at best. Much has changed about the industry since then.

    Pros

    Used to enjoy, were good people, but Admissions Leadership and Campus Director here in NC are unbearable. Some of the events were ok.

    Cons

    Constant pressure on sales goals Disregard for what is good for the student and their family, only the $ they bring to UTI. Mass disorganization. Leadership here is non existent. Manage by pressure tactics.

    Pros

    Good team to work with. Most middle management people are competent and motivated. The product, a good automotive technician education is excellent.

    Cons

    Most sales leadership is from outside the auto industry and cannot relate to the customer. Sales managers who can not do the job and have not done the job try to lead from behind. Non-sales positions are poorly paid for the level of commitment and professionalism required for the job.
