I had a friend that went to school at the school in Los Angeles, Ca. She said the school was political and the teachers engaged regularly in group harasment of some of the "out" or less popular students. She said the teachers and faculty were unprofessional, eletist and snoby and it reflected in the work and attitudes of the students.
She completed the "entire" program with all the expensive bells and wissles. She is in the process of paying back the over $25,000 in loans incured while in attendance. Oh, if you take out loans with the school, you should check the intrest thay plan to charge you after you hopefuly graduate. I've heard horror stories of some student loans jacking up to over $100,000.00 with outrageous intrest and penaties for late pay ect ect ect.. Don't be blinded by the lights camera action; Paul Mitchell is a mega international multi-million dollar corperation. They are out to make money first and foremost.
Also, some of the students have to restart the program if their attendance is not nearly perfect. Oh, she has also seen other less popular students ejected from the program with out reasonable cause because they didn't bow down to the demanding, rude, tyranical management the lords over the establishment at Paul Mitchell the School L.A. If they object, they are told to read the fine print. They can't even litigate. They are directed to mediation with the company. And when you sign the contract you better grin and bear it becase you are required the pay the $25,000.00 plus any intrest by law even if you don't finish the training or get a licence to practice cosmetology.
P.S. If you find youself being bullied, if you protest mal treatment at all, and the management doesn't seem all that concerned by your protests about being bullied, its a safe bet you'll never hold any signifigant roll in the company even if you do perservere and actualy graduate.
And lastly, there is nothing more pathetic than watching a 45 year old woman in JPMS' Employ with bleach blond hair, in a corset, knee high ass tight mini skirt, and knee high leather boots ganging up with six to eight other students ages 18, 19, 20, and 21 against a single student who has made a life choice not to be a party to the gang bully hipocrate mentality at PMS.
