I graduated from Everest College in July of 2009 as a Paralegal. Although I did find a job I was not happy with the overall outcome. Most of the people in my school didn't have to pay for their schooling. They had government grants and such. I had to pay for my schooling. Every interview I have had wants to pay me $9.00 an hour. I have an Associates degree and I didn't think I would be making a little above minimum wage considering I worked my behind off!! My monthly payments are $300.00 a month. Now I'm going back to a local community college and getting my Bachelors so I can at least make enough money to support myself and pay my school loans. I liked all my teachers but I'm not impressed with the school and wouldn't go to another school like this again. By the way I did lots of research on Paralegals and not one piece of information I found stated that I would start off making that low of a wage. I don't expect to make 30 an hour but $9.00 an hour, come on!!

My son went to Everest College in the Silver Springs, Maryland location and I must say that I am very disappointed with the way things went once he finished his course. He graduated from the Medical Assistant course 6 months ago and has still yet to find a job. They promise alot of things prior to you enrollment but never lived up to their words. They promised they would help him land some interviews...yeah right never happened.... Will never recommend this school.

I have very little respect for the staff at the San Jose Everest College. I applied to work there as a Career Rep. I truly felt that I had found my true calling. Working with students to succeed in their desired career path and achieve their goal was something I felt I would excel at and make a difference in someone else's life. I went through 3 interviews with the last being with their Regional Manager. A week and a half ago they said they would be in touch with me. To date no one has bothered to call me after numerous calls and messages. They can't even be bothered to call a potential employee with a courtesy call to let them know that they were not chosen. There can't be that many that made it to the third interview to make calling someone back an unreasonable task. I think it is very cruel and unprofessional of them. At the very least they could send out a form letter or e-mail. Wanting this so bad I have even tried to convince myself that part of the position is cold calling offices and getting your foot in the door. Sometimes I think that maybe this is a test to see how bad I want it or how I would react to a Dr.'s office that blows off all my calls with excuses.

i am currently a student at the burr ridge campus. im just in my 4th mod and i haven't learned anything since my intro. my intro teacher was the best but my teacher now is lazy. all we do is work on the computers. when we get homework she has us go over the answers and 99% of the time she doesn't clairfy what the correct answers are. now one student complained to the admin. that our teacher does not do lectures. so since she is being forced to do lectures and acutally work for her paycheck she refuses to give out handouts or study guides for the tests because she feels it is excessive even the the whole class is asking for them. basically she is just immature and upset that she got caught not working so she is taking it out on the whole class. I would not advise anyone to enroll at everest. this school is a joke. i basically just wasted $16,000 and there is nothing i can do about it.

I have been with Everest for 1 semester and I have learned little. I also found out that I can not transfer to another college. I know I will already owe at least 3.000. I'm done. Don't even think about it. They just want your money and once you are in there they don't let you get away.
