the school director treated me like dirt because i did not have money to pay for my books, tools or to get to school everyday.
He threw 4 others out of school that started in my class because of attendance and yelled at me and told me i was a loser in so many words.
i am 41 years old and was down on my luck at the time.
I went for help for a ride to Mr simson and morse. both helped me everytime but robert emme school director was  extremely nasty and threatened me several times to throw me out if i was not there on time everyday.
I dropped out because of him and so did my friend.
we went to another school and it was totally different.
they had books and tools included in tuition and treated us like people.
everytime i went to robert emmes office he was on his computer looking at funny emails with someone and sent me away twice and said he is busy.
i graduated this other school and am doing good with a decent job now.

i did a little research on mr emme.

he was on facebook.
i found out he stated he graduated fromdavid brearley high school in n jersey
i called and said he was applying for a job so i needed his high school diploma and they told me he dropped out of high school!  How is this guy a school director?  Pennco tech is a scam and a ripoff. This guy is not qualified and everyone should take a stand on this that spent money on their programs and is not working.
The owner is mike hobyak who is in the bristol pa school.
i left a message but never got a call back.
Robert emme also has no college or hs diploma.
the janitors have a better education then him. How is this possible

Mr hobyak must be aware of this and is also scamming the pupils that pay to go there.
the sales people lied but thats to be expected

the principle or director is a high school dropout with no college.

you cant run a school with a ged so the owners did not check this
even if he has a ged  i will bet the janitors have a better education

he throws everybody out for attendance but he didnt finish school himself. hows that work
scam city
pennco tech needs someone who is nice to students and someone educated. not this idiot with no high school

oh yeah   its a building trades school where you learn all proper procedures and codes and standards to follow in the class

this idiot principle did all kinds of construction, walls and additions to the school without permits and got sited for it.
in a school where this is the first thing they teach you   wow  what an idiot high school dropout
mr hobyak  get someone nice and get someone qualified to do this job of principle at pennco tech

Pennco Tech

AUTHOR: Bob Watson - ()

 The School Director had every reason to give you a hard time. Pennco Tech doesn't just treat you as a student but also as if you were an employee. So you need to be there on-time all the time as if it were a real job. (They are acclimating you to the real world) It is irrelevant that some staff may not have HS Diploma or Degree, just as long as the instructors are qualified to teach the curriculum for which you are attending. What you did by contacting a HS to determine if someone had a HS Diploma or not under false pretences is illegal, along with bordering on stalking. This is a private Tech school, so it does not need to be ran like a college or HS for that matter. All that matters is that you are be provided with the education promised. The director was only yelling at you because he cared. He could of said "Hell with it, if he cant be here on time everyday and his attendance falls behind...Financial Aid will be cut and he will be dropped from the program." The school also sets guidlines for everyone to follow. 1. Be on time 2. Learn 3. Have proper Attire 4. Be sure to have all tools by day 30 from the list that was provided for you. You read and acknowledged all these rules prior to starting school. Your transportation problems should have been resolved prior to attending school. My Wife starts work everyday at 6am, I am required to be in school at 7:30am everyday, & my children start school at 8:15am everyday. See my dilemma? I had to find an arrangement that worked to have my children at school every morning so that my wife and myself could be where we needed to be with the kids being to school on time. So instead of blaming the school for your problems, look at yourself first! Implement this philosophy into your everday life "If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail!"....
