Heritage Sux – Well I can see after reading Kauwyana's review that Heritage still hasn't changed. I wish I would have read all the reviews before i decided to go to school there. Brett still acts like he is god. Brittany is a total b***h. The staff talk down to you, disrespect you and treat you like children. You get in "trouble" for "breaking the rules" (you are supposed to be in scrubs which they consider uniform at all times)when you want to wear a coat or jacket over your scrubs even when it's 20 degrees in your classroom. You can't talk on the phone in the hallway. You are supposed to be outside or in the break room. It's like walking on pins and needles around there. My entire pharmacy tech class was wanting to withdraw from this school because even after much complaining to the higher ups nothing gets done. But instead of withdrawing we have stood our ground and decided not to put up with their BS. So now, the Pharmacy Tech program is basically on the staffs crap list now..................All i have to say for you future prospects is RUN FORREST RUN!!! DON'T ENROLL HERE!
Heritage College - Little Rock – I went in for an interview for massage therapist program in 2010 and the college was extremely expensive. Besides taking out sudent loans they wanted me to take out additional loans from them and make payments to them also which was unheard of so I declined attending the school and they stalked me through phone calls and mail. In October 2011 I wanted to do the medical assistant program and I also wanted to see if their prices were competitive from the other schools seeing their not brand new anymore and I brought in my costs sheets from the other schools to compare and boy did Erin CLICK on me. She walked in after I was interviewing with another lady which that interviewer was talking to me as if she were reading straight from a script. Erin walked in and pulled a chair close to me and leaned into my face and said "Yeah I know you didn't think you could come in here and not have to see me again". She "Erin" was my interviewer last year, she then goes in to saying if the other schools are better why are you here why don't you just go over there I told Ms. Thang just like you interviewing me I'm interviewing you and if this school is not for me then on to the neext one just as you would do if you were interviewing for a job, now what!!! I'm a 38 yr old woman and this little girl is in my face acting like she's the "Godfather" and calling herself checking me. After telling her she's in the NO Fly Zone which is my personal space and she'd better move her ass. I told her I didn't like her attitude or her for that matter and I could not see myself being in that environment. I'm starting at Eastern College in the medical assistant program and they allow you to do work study for 5 hours a week to pay off a loan if you want to and......you don't have to pay extra for the x-ray class just $99 dollars for the license unlike other schools that will charge $6000 more but make you think they're the only one that has medical assistant/ x-ray in Arkansas. My 10 yr old twins has a No Bullying Policy at their school...maybe Heritage should be like LRSD & implement some policies for them. Erin liked to found herself in a Tyler Perry storyline 1-800- Choke-That- #@.
Heritage College - Little Rock – I am taking the X-ray courses. There are only 3 xray classes and the rest are Medical Assisting classes. What they don't stress in the 'interview' is you are a limited scope X-ray Tech and what that really means.
In the Medical Assisting book it shows that you will probably start out making alittle over $24,000/year. When you are paying over $17,000 for your course that seems WAY to high when you are not going to make much money when you get out. Just do your research before you go to this school. They are way to expensive.
Administration is AWFUL! You have Brett that comes in our instructors room like he is God and makes the instructors feel very uncomfortable. Our instructors should not be working in that environment! It is like he is looking over there shoulder to try and find something they are doing wrong just to get one to them! We had a mock clinic and he was laughing at students on how they wre reacting (I witnessed this first hand). Very unprofessional! You have other people in administration that talk down to you like they are better than you. Seriously. I have NEVER seen anything like it. They do NOT respect their instructors. And acts like this is Junior High. We are all adults and should be treated like adults not kids!
Most colleges don't watch your time. If your class is scheduled from 8:30-12:30 and you get done at 12:00 you can leave. They make your instructor keep you there until 12:30 so you can get your time in (even though you are doing nothing). It is totally crazy. A waste of time.
In our MA classes we are learning information about prescriptions, how to give shots, etc. But were told that as a medical assistant you will not be able to give shots or write prescriptions. Why waste our time!
I am very very worried about the credibility of this college BUT I am not a quitter. I am not scared to get my foot in the door and work my way up OR use this as a stepping stool in my career. But I am very worried. Just do your homework! Currently I would NOT recommend this college!
