Where to begin...? ITT-Tech panders to students who could barely make it through high school (for the most part) by swindling them out of their hard-earned money, under the guise of "financial aid". All in all, the whole operation is a financial aid scam. If the DOE stopped enabling them to swindle financial aid from students, the whole operation would fall flat enough to dissolve into bankruptcy, tomorrow. For the most part, the company gets quality instructors who are down and out, hires them, abuses them, and then fires them, without cause, or they make up a cause for termination. Most instructors know their stuff pretty well, but when they learn how the operation is really operated, they either quickly divorce themselves from the company, or they make the mistake of mentioning some of the many inconsistencies within earshot of an administrator. Then, without warning, and even with glowing evaluations, that instructor is fired within days. Students need to know that the grades they actually receive from ITT-Tech are NOT indicative of their actual progress, but are inflated so that 1) the student keeps on attending, thus ensuring a steady stream of financial aid keep flowing into the company, and 2) the instructor can boost their numbers (metrics) to get bonuses. Yep, you heard right! Grades are for hire! Especially, since the metrics changed last January (2009), and now all instructors' jobs depend on students getting A's and B's and attending every class. Instructors even hold pizza parties and bring in sweets and goodies, just to entice students to come to class and increase their grades. Students very seldom have homework, nor do they do the homework they are requested to do, yet miraculously, they garner A's and B's for final grades. Heck, last year, Dr. Hill (Dean of Education) even went to arbitration and ended up awarding a supposed Bachelor's Degree to a guy with a 3rd grade reading level! Thank God I finally caught on at the local community college and don't have to be subjected to ITT's *** any more! Also, they charge $40,000 for a 2-year degree; by comparison, the local, fully-accredited community college, charges $3995/ semester. Huge difference! Also, I complained 3 times to HR about the fact that every time I entered the building through the faculty entrance, I had to hold my breath for all the smokers who blocked the entrance every day. Nothing was ever done, even when I made my complaint formal.
