FCC (hialeah) is a wonderful school to go to .... The representatives are very attentative and they know what they are doing. Luis (HIALEAH) is a wonderful leader and he deserves credit for all the pressure that is being put on him by FAT JULIO SOCORRO...i cant stand him!!! The people in the Corporate Center are very nasty, rude and unprofessional. The school would be great, if it wasn't for "UNETHICAL CORPORATE" . Performance is all that matters for them. THEY CAN'T SEE HOW HARD SOME REPS WORK TO GET AN ENROLLMENT. whatever!

Hialeah campus has this slogan that says "The college the Cares" but the only thing they care about is enrollments. Some of the best representatives that use to work there quit like myself. Those of us that left to other schools played the smart card because staying to work for this school usually leads to a dead end. They call this the boot-camp school... because you can start to work there with little to no experience to get trained then you can move on to bigger and better schools. The secret is to make sure you have a good start rate on your enrollments and when you are at the peak of your game, send out resumes to better schools and you will be hired. Yeah I use to work their and while I will not comment on one of the most horrible management adjustments I have ever seen in a company, I will like to say thanks for my free trip to Vegas and thanks for the experience you gave me... now I'm making more money with incentives and am not surrounded by drama!

Just got a few quick questions and hopefully it will get answered here.
First: When the student recieves the disbursement notification from the lender, how long does it normally take the schools financial aid office to disburse the funds? I was only asking because at the Academy of Court Reporting in Cincinnati, it normally takes about two to three months before the students get their disbursment checks, if they get it then. and if they did'nt receive a check the financial aid office wants the student a write a letter stating what the student needs the money for, and if financial aid does'nt feel that you answered the question to there liking then you won't be entitled to YOUR MONEY. The money you signed for and will have to pay back.
Second: How much of your financial aid is school entitled to outside of the tutition.

Well, i see x-employees speaking out but not to the right people. Why hasn't there been a push by the employees to do the ethical thing and complain to the US Department of Education. Seriously, you are selling false hopes to individuals who need help now due to the economy. Grow a heart and do the right thing. Shut down FCC and save the hardache that those future students will endure.

no way, do not attend this school. This school is a joke! Keiser has a much better reputation and programs. They are doing much better as well financially. I suggest you go to Keiser.

I was re-directed here from a friend at FCC. The guy named Yoooo is not me. This is to the guy or girl called Yooostupid, either you are doing bad at your position and being transfered elsewhere cuz you can't handle the pressure or you'r too stupid to come through with your own number's. Oh wait, this isn't Tammy is it? Are you still but hurt that I didn't give your old ass a chance and that I closed more prospect's in my 1st 2 weeks then you have in over 3 months?? You have no idea what the hell you are saying pointing finger's and crying out at other's like alot of people on this thread are doing. So while we are on the subject of the guessing game, what makes you think that I am still in the school industry? Most likely I am making twice as much as you are but that's because I finished school at the end of the year (2008) and now working in the field that I studied in. Now, while I appreciate you thinking about me, it is so obvious that you are still but hurt. You should concentrate more on doing your job and being productive rather then coming to forums like these and calling people out because you just made a fool out of yourself. And by the way, since I am already here I will comment on my opinion about FCC. While I was working there I never had any issues as an admission's representative. It was a great place to work at, I made decent money and met alot of cool people whom I still consider friend'd to this date. Most likely I was a way better representative then these guy's or girl's called Yooostupid or Yoooo. I highly suggest that if you want to stop making your school look bad to stop coming on these forums and bashing ex-employees.

I would also like to add that if you are interested in studying, FCC is not a bad school to study in really. I can name a bunch of other school's that are far worse like Sullivan and Cogliano for example... you think FCC is bad? You don't want to know about the scams that occur in Sullivan like the false ATB tests... which everyone seem to pass.... SO PLEASE don't call out FCC as being the worse because they are a better choice then most schools out there. call me out like this one more time... tu no tienes lof juevos para decir esto en mi cara. Daleee

Danny:

Honestly, I am glad you are content with your success at FCC as a sales representative. To be honest, it is sad that you made money defrauding others. The bottomline is that FCC was raided for falsifying High School Diplomas so that those individuals could receive Federal Monies to attend FCC! This is a FACT!

Were you one of the Admin Reps that allowed this to happen? Do you realize that those individuals that received a diploma from FCC without a valid HS Diploma do not have an actual valid Graduation Certificate? That person could have been a single mom who was looking to better the life for her child. Now she has toilet paper as a degree! You should be ashamed of yourself for working for an institution that defrauded your neighbors! There isn't any need to divert attention to another school. They were not the ones that were raided by the FBI! You piece of S#%T!

I can atest to the fact that yes, Ms. Kim does work for Florida Career College which i am now having investigated and having a great problem with because of financial aid fraud in my name due to loans i never requested in the first place.
The people that work there as far as administration goes have no people skills and they can care less. They will ignore requests from students, they dont answer their phones or return messages. Degrading to be the least, I chose this school because i thought it was going to cater to my needs because of the small classroom sizes and supposedly attentiveness of the instructors and super lovely staff. Its all a lie, please dont waste your time attending there and most of all i am now finding out that the coding certification exam i took isn't going to serve me to work at the hospital that i've dreamed of working at. They're stressing me out!!!

Hi Critterluvr: I was going to FCC in Pembroke Pines in 2005 for my degree. I am also 13,000 in debt because of this craziness. I would like to get in touch with you to get our facts straight and pursue a law suit if any options are available. Please respond when you get a chance.

Thanks,
