*Consumer Comment: Airline academy
First of all, I was paid a visit by a so called "recruiter" at my very own home. He clearly stated that every single student would be hired once they finish schooling at the academy. Also, he told my family that many airlines hire students out of this school. Southwest, Delta, and Continental Airlines to name a few. Then he said that I could work anywhere I wanted to. Dorms were condos conveniently located near the beach, and there would be transportation to and from the school.
Second of all, I had to pay almost six thousand dollars or so just on the "Distance Learning" portion at a rate of $243 a month. It was required by the academy that it would be paid off before I started training at the academy.
Third, I had to pay another three hundred dollars or so on the flight to and from my place. Then I had to pay at least $700 to housing and a $50 deposit, which was never returned to me when I left.
When I showed up for the first night at the housing, the entire dorm was actually a hotel room (The Seascape Inn) and not a condo. Cockroaches and ants crawled rampantly on the floor, and I believe that there were mice running rampant between the walls.
Silverware and other kitchen items were incomplete. There were no paper towels to wipe anything off, and only one bottle of dish soap and a couple cloths to wash and dry dishes.
Bathrooms were very moldy and dirty as well. Bathtub area especially.
Rooms were okay, but some of my classmates were unlucky. Some found hair or oil on towels and pillows provided.
To make things worse, the location of the housing from the school was far by at least seven miles. Stores and food were far from the school, and students could barely leave the houses after school and get back before sign-out times.
House parents were lazy and rude. Students did not feel comfortable around them, and were treated horribly. They especially would open dorm room entrance doors without a warning, which scared a lot of my classmates.
