Complaint Review: Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Miami - Miami Florida
Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Miami Le Cordon Bleu Thieves, deceivers, scammers. CREDIT IS RUINED! Miramar Florida
The school is a scam, you are lured into believing you will become a successful chef making lots of money once you graduate. They tell you all kinds of lies at the time of enrollment to get you to apply for the loans which in reality once you graduate you wont ever be able to pay. I've had to return to school, never found a decent job. Most I got paid was 8 dollars an hour, a job that the school referred me to. They told me to take it to gain experience and that in no time I'd be a successful chef. None of the credits are accepted anywhere if you want to go back to school you have to start from the beginning. My credit is ruined since I WAS 20. I am 33 now and have not been able to apply for even a 200 dollar capital one credit card. I entered school believing they had a full pastry program, rep told me I'd get out of school being a professional pastry chef when in reality they give you 2 weeks of pastry classes with professors that tell you to read the book and do recipe at your house. When applying for the loan they told me I'd have a 2-3% loan with a variable interest but it'd never go up more than 5-6 %, as of today my loan's interest is in 17-18%. It went up from 30K to 107K. I have tried making payments but last time I spoke to someone from the loan company they told me the minimim monthly payment is $900.00 dollars a month. I offered to make $400.00 dollar monthly payment and their reply was that they'd be very happy to put my loan on default. It has been ever since. I've had to return to school to get a degree where I can make more money to pay the $100k abd forget about getting a house or apt.
The first job that I was refered to by them, was at a restaurant where they had a program for prison inmates that are almost done with their sentences. My experience was horrible, I was the only woman in the back of the kitchen spending my 10-12 hour work schedule with these men who would be constantly harrassing and making sexual comments. The rest of my coworkers were illegal immigrants who were making the same amount of money I was making. After 3 months I quit the job. When looking for other jobs in the same industry I would always be recommended to change to the front of the restaurant to work as a hostess or waiter. After 1 1/2 of working in this industry with no hope I decided to change paths and change careers. Everyone else I know that attended school with me has had to do the same thing and change career paths. The school is a scam. When you go in for a tour you are introduced to these representatives or sales men that are no less than a car salesman trying to make you at all costs sign the loan papers and sale you a lemon car. I am very dissapointed and also frustrated because I now cannot give my daughter a good future with no credit in this country.
