My main concern is that there are many terrible reviews online for the school. The consensus is that while Chef Notter and the school itself are outstanding, the office is ridiculous. Lots of ex-employees have posted different reviews. There is a high turnover for the office positions. Employees are pressured to find "leads" and sell them on the school. I've had several interactions now with people in the office and there have been enough discrepancies in what I've been told, that I am very hesitant to sign on the dotted line. People tell me one thing and then call me a day later to tell me something different. Or even worse, have me drive all the way out there only to tell me something different. The school has an F rating with the BBB.
When such an incredible amount of money is on the line, I have to be cautious. I've been vacillating on this decision for so long- it's my dream to go and my passion but I can't just jump into this after the red flags I've seen in my dealings with the office. I feel like everyone is telling me what I want to hear and I have to make the best, most informed decision I can when almost $23,000 I don't yet have is involved.
Has anyone here attended? Any words of wisdom?
