Computertraining.edu ComputerTraining.com Corrupt school will ripoff students and disregards own employees Hunt Valley, Maryland
Sadly, this is not the first time ComputerTraining.edu (or ComputerTraining.com as it used to be) has treated employees and students with no respect.
I was also an Assistant Director of Admissions there for some years and was even told I would be able to receive a promotion just before it ended for us.
There was part of a mass layoff in April. At that time, the company was not earning enough and suddenly cut over 50-60 employees. In fact, literally the day before the cut, there was a meeting for the entire Admissions Department, in which we were told that the company was growing and taking an online approach, so we would soon be divided into teams of Assitant Directors for each function.
The following day, we were suddenly told that because of the loss in profit for the quarter, we were closing the admissions department and a small crew would remain to handle the final students and appointments set. Numerous Directors of Placement and Regional Directors of Placement and Admissions were cut then also.
Surprisingly, the company turned around within just about 3 months and hired enough Assistant Directors to fill the department again. Now, they have again laid off half the department and upon checking their website, they have closed about half of their campuses. You see now, why they didn't call the same employees back.
This company is intent on using people to earn money and nothing else. Students and potential employees should see that this company does not have their interest at heart when they eliminate the staff dedicated to placing students into jobs, rapidly change the curriculum and tution, and hire and lay off staff without any planning, thought, or consideration for the people affected.
ComputerTraining.edu knowingly admits students who don't have the computer experience and background to get into the careers they advertise. Then, they take their money while cutting the training and support they need to succeed, close campuses, throw away employees, and run. While there have been many serious and dedicated employees working for the right reasons, the actual company is a ripoff to all involved.
