ED Magedson – Founder
HEALD COLLEGE7 Sierra Gate plaza Roseville, California United States of America
After working 30 years in the same industry I lost my job in March 2009. I thought the best thing was to go back to school. After talking to the admissions person at Heald college they had me convinced I would come out of the school with a great career making good money so, I joined.
During the 9 months of school all of the teachers would talk about how much money we would all make at the end. I graduated in April with Honors and found out at that time not only do they just send you listings from craigs list for jobs. But they also have certain students that they hold the good jobs for.
It was very disturbing to find out after paying 13 thousand dollars I would only be offered a job for 12 dollars an hour. I made that kind of money back in 1980. And if you don't accept the 12 dollar an hour job they stop helping you find work. I am not the only one in this situation their are 14 girls that I know of. We were all lied to in the beginning. The admissions personel said they take good care of their older students and it was all untrue.
Now we all have student loans coming due and none of us are working. You cannot live on 12 dollars an hour as a single parent. I did not spend 13 thousand dollars to make less money then I was making. I did however know I wouldn't make the same to start but not 12 dollars an hour.
Admissions said it would be around 35 thousand a year and they had great placement for when you graduate. Which was yet another untruth. Someone needs to put a stop to all the false information that this school is spilling out on the older generation who have lost there jobs and are despirit to find work.
