What's up with the lawsuit? I need to get mine. Word is Michaell Zawaiaky is now running the joint. Another punk out to take advantage. Who are the attorneys to contact? Dylan Chillress still up in that joint? Lousy admissions.

Another disappointment with whoever makes the BIG decisions. They have Jose Cortez as ED in the Weslaco Campus now. In whos right mind would think he would do good as a ED???? He is a very dishonest person with everything, he has a bad attitude with the people he doesn't like and also he has a new lover Laura Chavez they r now involved with each other. Another thing what happen with Melinda Flores the other one he had before???? They went from bad to worse with putting Cortez as a ED. Sorry for the people at that campus.

What has STVT come to? Who is running all this BS around here?? Now they have Jose Cortez as the ED in Weslaco, what is wrong with the people that are making all this BIG Mistakes. Cortez is a liar, dishonest person, a two face, unfair to people he dislikes and worse of all a cheater to his wife. He so call says that he loves his wife when she was pregnant he was missing around with Melinda Flores the DA instructor that they fired and now he is with Laura Chavez the MA instructor. Everyone that really knows this two face knows what kind of person he is. I hope it doesn't take long for someone to see the real Cortez before it gets worse for the campus. Good Luck to the people that are still in Weslaco!!!!! U all will need it.

I want info on the lawsuit going on cause I have loans that I can't even pay cause I don't have a job. STVT just takes advantage of people that just want to be better. I don't recommend this school to no one not even people that don't know anything. Anyone that has info let me know.

I want to join the lawsuit that other employees of STVT are filing, because I was working as an instructor and saw a lot of bad things happening. I worked at the STVT in Weslaco as an instructor when Jose Cortez was the DOE and I witness things that are so wrong to do. I was asked to change things on my resume to qualify me for the position they needed, if you get along with him you have him on your side but if you challenge him you are in his bad side, and I witness how he can really treat people bad with bad language and attitude. I really think thats why ATI/STVT have lost many schools and students because of the people they have running the schools for example Jose Cortez. I want to join in the lawsuit, please give me more info.

Just curious now, are you employed there still? There is only 1 instructor, 1 recruiter, 1 finacial aid rep & NO CAREER COUNSELORS left today that were there the month I started. Hmmm. And why on earth would soooo many of the former employees up to EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR be posting on here about how horrible it is? It's a no-brainer.
As far as making effort, trying? I spent more of my time helping the other students, and often the instructors as well, to understand the subjects. I missed 1 week of one MOD due to health issues, was present everyday other than that, pulled STRAIGHT A's on all assignments & tests, had a better understanding of the subject than ANYONE else in the class, yet got a "D"???-- was told it was because of that first week...Then the joe blow sitting in the corner was there everyday, failed every assignment and test, understood nothing, yet managed to pull an "A"???-- makes me think that it is not about knowledge, education or learning a life skill or trade, it's should be renamed ATTENDANCE 101 (to make sure they get the governments money.
With the way the country's economy has become, it would make sense to QUIT GIVING IT TO THESE THIEVES---they have stolen so many young people's hopes, dreams & futures, set them up for failure while they drive away in their fancy little cars without a concern in the world for the lives they have destroyed.
Rey Torres is a self-absorbed jerk that cares only for himself, but then this is seems to be a requirement for ATI corporate members. Carli, well,who cares about any of them. They are simple amoebas feeding on the weaknesses of people wanting to make their lives better. In my book that makes them the slug slime. Good luck to these guys, you are soooo impressive. Now we know what we don't want our children to grow up to be--society slime.
No, I am no longer employed there; I was let go in June 2011.

I should've pulled out when I had the chance but I went ahead and finished. I'm not upset about the teachers nor the classes. What I'm upset about is the lack of career services. I graduated and still have no job. I've been on numerous of interviews and it seems like no one wants to hire me because of the school that I graduated from which is ATI. No I'm having to pay all this money back for nothing and I'm not working. I haven't heard from no one in career services about a job in a year. It seems to me that all they wanted was the money and didn't give a dam about my future. Ridiculous. I feel that if we don't get a job like we were promised by them, then we shouldn't have to pay a dam dime. #mythoughts

As a former instructor st ATI it is ashame what happens at this school! The instructors where I worked were good instructors. I can't speak for everyone but I can say this, not all private school's are run like this. I attended a school that was private and did very well in my career. The difference is I had to take an entrance exam and had to have a high school diploma. We could miss no more than 7 days total and it was a very strict enviroment. I had a very good career as an MA, but ATI has no moral's or boundries! They prey on the less fortunate. As for Carli Strength and his crew in Dallas what a shame you are. I left ATI and the reason is clear. You had no right to hurt not only students but employees. Your employees are victims of poor management and you are fully aware of this! The big survey you did to find out how your employees felt about you should have been a big clue! You did nothing except give them the so called academy. That is such a bunch of nonsense! Kathy Fox should not be incharge of anything. Dean Jenkins assaulted a teacher and you promoted him? He should have been fired! Shame on you and all you claim you do for the staff and students you are lacking on the basic rule of first! Students first, not bottom line. Good luck on watching the empire fall! I hope your students find a better place to go to school. Trust me it is always better to go to a 2-4 year college but if you can't there are good private schools out there.
in what way did dean jenkis assault the teacher?

You are correct Ashley. You do love your School and Instructors. May God bless you and the hard working instructors who make training well for you. However, please do not forget the dedication your instructors have made do not compare with the illegal activity the Senior level of management continue to conduct in the name of greed. You and your instructor are both victims. God Bless you and much success in your future.
You have strong words but no substance! If you would like to talk face to face I will be more than willing to accommodate you. Would love to hear from you my friend!

Please help me. I was about to take final exam, and then they shut down. And still asking for money, all that hard work in school while working... I need some help, and I am feeling like I have been scammed. I tried my very best at studying and getting ready to work in the medical field and worked hard as so many did. And I have nothing to show for it except the mails I get from the government...I made good grades, and was almost finished, I even bought my Grad uniform then they shut down...I don't really know what to do.

I am looking for a lawyer as well. I graduate this school and apply for jobs for a year after graduating just to get laughed at for going to ATI. As soon as they see ATI on the resume or say I went to ATI the interview process stops.My husband also get the same sour looked and comments that they would not hire someone with their education based on ATI education. but He has a background in what He went for. He was trying to update his education and it turn out that He was a better teacher also ATI lied about having a Dyno machine to train on.
I have talked to 5 lawyers and none of them wants to take the case even though they advertise If you are an ATI student they were taken cases. They tell me I a m nt the kind of case they are looking for. I am in touch with 4 other classmates that has not got a job in the field they train in at ATI.

I want to sue ATI wrote:
I went for the HVAC course, and I want to sue this trade school, because they did not do what they promised me. They lure you with lies and then when they have the money in their pockets they don't care about you. They were suppose to find me job and never did. When I finally got a job in my own they called me and asked me about my job. They called my supervisor and acted as if they got the job for me. My supervison got mad at them and told them i got this job in my own. What they did is they put my job in their records as if they would have found that job for me. This school sucks, I regret I went there. Please people don't go, they don't teach anything, if you go be prepared to learn on your own.
They did this to my husband. believe it or not they called every bike shop in Dallas to see where He got employed. When they found him they did exactly what they did to you to him. Tbey act like they found his job for him and even faxed a paper over to the shop and asked the manager to sign it and send it back.The manager neversign it.They kept calling and harassing for the info another manger got mad and told them He did not hire him based on ATI education and to please do not send any of your students here.
