have no problem starting on Monday, but all depend on my wife schedule operation. She understood and she said that if it doesnt work for this star, they have another one in 4 weeks. I did appreciate that she told me that, she was very strait and down to the point.
I got disappointed when I met the DOA, Chris Mercado, first, he was very pushy and arrogant, and show no respect to the admissions person, he sounds like an use car salesman, he did not care that my wife was going to have a mayor surgery on Tuesday. He was just caring more about me been there on Monday than anything else. At that point, I couldn'tt believe the thing this guy said to me. He told me about the people there have more problems than me, and they are making the commitment to go to school. He told me about single womans there with 3 kids and working to get it done. He told me that I need it to make a decision right then and there. I told him the same thing I told my admissions person. He didnt even ask me what my wife has. All he wants is for me to be there on Monday. At that point I told him that I will be there Monday ,so he can leave me along, and I left.
Monday came and I did not come to class. On Thursday, I got a call from Alex Rodriguez, School Director, asking me, why I did no show to class on Thursday. I told Mr. Alex that I never started, and Chris knew that. He then ask me if I came and set in class at all, I told him no, he then ask me
if I came and sign an attendance sheet, and I told him no. At that point I was getting a little irritated for the line of questions that he was asking me, and then I ask why all this questions? He told me that it was probably a mistake and then he told me not to worry. It looks like they sign my name so they can count me as a number set for that start. I was so upset with the situation that i went to enroll in another school. Few moth latter, I receive a bill from a Collection agency that I own FTC, more than $3500 dollars. I call Alex Rodriguez and he assure me that it was all a mistake and he was going to fix it. A month later i got a letter clearing me from the debt.
Chris Mercado was like the typical USE CAR SALESMAN desperate to get the sale without any consideration for peoples situation. Is sad that now, I know how this school works, and Im happy that I did not make the mistake to start there. I want everybody to know about my experience, and I want people to shop around before picking a school, and do not go to FTC!!!!
