They just want money from you... recruiters try to be professionals, but they just want to make money. Do not go there... pay a little bit more, but for something better... they bad mouth about other schools, I guess is because it is the only option they have

McCann School of Business not a good school.

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I spent 2 years at this school, I received my Associates Degree in 2014. Although I was fortunate to get a decent place to do my externship, it did me no good. The money that we were told that we would make is not even close. I spent over $40,000. on an education that is useless in all forms. I cant even get interviewed for most jobs. Especially not in billing. I always get interviewed for the receptionist jobs that any one can get with a high school diploma. The pay is terrible and wont even pay my bills let alone student loans. I believe any one thinking of going to this school should think again. Oh and I have spoke to just about my entire graduating class and we all have the same complaint. Some believe that there is a class action suite against them. If anyone on here knows of such a suite please message me. I believe this school is a waste of money and anyone's time. They do not follow up to help nor can you get anyone to help if you call once you graduate you are on your own they only know you when they are receiving your money.

Beware!

The people that work here are incompetent, don't file paperwork correctly and then avoid any contact to try to rectify the situation. Every time my daughter went there to meet with the lady in financial aid, she was either not at her desk or no one could find her. The building in Dickson City is not that big! Obviously this is their thing. No one ever returned a phone call! This place is a joke! Save your time and money.

No Externship sites

I need my externship to graduate. Every time I message the school and ask if they have an externship site for me I am told no. It's taking me longer to get an extern site than it did to complete the phlebotomy program. They made me redo classes I had already taken at another school and passed. It was a total waste of money and I would not recommend the school to anyone. I should get a total refund, I got absolutely nothing from this program or the program director. I still message her every month or so but I don't get any satisfaction. The last email hasn't even been addressed yet. Thank you

DON'T EVER GO TO MCCANN SCHOOL OF BUSINESS AND TECHNOLOGY

My girlfriend went to McCann School of Business and Technology in January 2012. Things went great for her the 1st semester, as time went on in the spring and summer of 2012 my girl had an instructor who flirted with her in class she brushed if off as harmless because she wanted to get through school and get a career that's all that was important to her, she has 2 witnesses who saw him blatantly stare at her while my girlfriend and her friends were waiting in the hall to get in class. The instructor made inuendos in her anatomy and physiology class when at one time she said he tried to stick a disk in the computer to show the class a powerpoint, she said he was having problems with the disk then the instructor commented that maybe he should stick it in slow then looked over at my friend and her friend sitting next to her. My girlfriend and her friend said the instructors flirting was going on till the semester was over after the semester was over my girl jokingly told other students of the instructors behavior and it got back to him so he got scared thinking that she was trying to ruin his reputation (to add he ruined his own reputation) he reported her to the director of education so my girlfriend was called into the office, the director of education told her that she has to dismiss her because she has something documented about my girlfriend, she asked the director of education what she has, the director of education avoided the question but my girlfriend sent her an email a week later and asked for her to send her reasons why she was dismissed well she got the letter and the letter was such BS full of false accusations claiming that my girl talked about the instructor publically on facebook she can prove that she never did such a thing we have friends and family who can attest that they never saw her talk about any instructor on facebook. She was also falsely accused of approaching the instructor in an inappropriate way she can prove she never did that either she avoided him. So, the school dismisses my girlfriend 2 months before she was supposed to graduate, the school violated their contract because they were supposed to send my girlfriend a letter for a due process hearing, she never got a letter stating there will be a hearing on this matter she was just dismissed. She has a lawyer on this and the Dept. of Education is aware of it as well as the Attorney General and the Senator who even wanted to see the complaint. The Dept of Education sent the school the complaint recently and the school has a 30 day response period the complaint process will take about 6wks. She just wants her refund back. I suggest that if anyone wanted to attend McCann School of Business and Technology to think twice about it and they also hired a felon to teach at the school this guy who was arrested about 4yrs ago for sexually harassing a minor at a High School. That school is *** for wrongfully dismissing my girlfriend right before she was supposed to graduate

When I signed up for this school i just lost my job working in customer service and they treated me great at first, said the field health information management wasna growing field wiyh great earning possibility (later learned nit so much 10.00 per hour and school changed name to electronic health records whoch is not accurate because coirse is so much more) my admission counselor was always in contact with me, giving me the impression that I had one on one attention.. But after the probationary period they disappeared...

Most of the teachers were OK but when its costing over $30,000 a year OK doesn't cut it... Not to mention they are NOT regionally accredited ( I learned this out too late) which means many colleges will not recognize the credits you worked long and hard for 2 years for, as I did earning an Associates degree. Only a couple schools like their Miller Mott and Cedar crest College might if you want to further your education. Also finding an externship was very difficult because of rumors of not being properly trained.

I lucked out and found one willing to take me but wasn't offered a job. When I joined this school I was told I would be certified as a RHIT or Registered Health Information Technician but they changed acceditdation and now I only can be certified as a Certified Electronic Health Records Specialist which many employers do not recognize. And finally I was told there was career placement assistance met with the woman was told they would be calling me or emailing me at least once a week. Well I graduated June 2 and haven't heard from them since.

What a joke!!

Still unemployed now with student loans and no interviews for what I went to school for I have a interview for customer service (what I did before I went back to school) I should have saved my time and money and not have gone here all they care about is the money. Go to a junior college or university you really are better off
