STAY CLEAR OF CEC- Career Education Corporation (CECO) Schools
CEC operates numerous for-profit schools (school list below)
Please research CEC and its schools carefully.
CEC owns and operates IADT
Credits DO NOT transfer to State Colleges. PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH

CEC is being investigated by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (“GAO”) for deceptive or otherwise questionable statements, which included information about the college’s accreditation, graduation rates and its student’s prospective employment and salary qualifications, duration and cost of the program, or financial aid. Representatives at certain schools also employed hard-sell sales and marketing techniques to encourage students to enroll.

CEC - Career Education Corporation (CECO) a for-profit conglomerate is a highly untrustworthy corporation. Researching this company and its schools briefly reveals countless highly damaging reports including, but not limited to CBS investigations, scam school list, a degree mill list and regulatory investigative fact-finding reports into its business practices. Furthermore and more importantly, thousands of past and current students in addition to faculty have filed suit against CEC for enrollment and job placement fraudulence in addition to many other untrustworthy practices. It appears numerous lawsuits have recently been won by students and faculty with more lawsuits in the development stages. There is something wrong at Career Education Corp. and these judgments are evidence of that. Federal regulators recently tightened job placement and federal loan payback guidelines on CEC and its highly unlikely Career Education Corp. can satisfy the new guidelines. Career Education Corporation final days are numbered.

Job recruiter:
“Most for-profit degrees are worthless. Our company will not interview students from these "colleges" due to the low quality. All they care about is getting loan money.”

Carolyn Powley helped me to realize that everyone makes mistakes, those that hurt us and ourselves included; that we cannot expect ourselves to never falter – rather, it is the process of recognition, responsibility, and forgiveness that allows us to finally let go and move on.

Wow! I will NEVER use Bakker's or Corry's Dry Cleaning (they are owned by the same people) again!!!! They completely ruined two pair of pants that exceeded $500.00 in value and they refused to take any responsibility for eeither pair - despite the fact that the women at the front counter acknowledged that both pair of pants were not damaged when they were left and were obviously unwearable after pickup. When I called the owner to discuss the situation, he flat out said that he would not replace them and that he did not believe that the cleaner was at all responsible for the damage. When I told him that his own counter employees had acknowledged that the pants were damaged during the cleaning process, he said that he disagreed with them! Really??!!!! The employees at the counter actually saw the pants prior to and following the cleaning!!! I do not recommend anyone use this cleaner ever, particularly for expensive items that you do not want to replace because of inexpert cleaning!!!!!
And by the way - I have had my cleaning done by Corry's or Bakker's for over 17 years - and when I mentioned this to the owner, he said thaT HE DIDN'T CARE!!! So for all of you Corry's and Bakker clients out there - just know that the owner does not care about the type of service his cleaners provide or his customers!

I have been using Seattle Airport Limo and Town Car for my personal and business use in the past years and have to say that I'm very happy with their service. They are very timely and respectful. Their drivers always come with a smile on their face which means a lot to me and my clients. I would never think of using any other limo service.

We were looking for a charter boat in Seattle and found the old Virginia V. It has been completely updated and was a great place for our company to rent for a celebration event that we had. We had dinner and drinks and were out on the water for about three hours. I'd highly recommend the Steamer Virginia V for a cool place to take customers. Our customers really liked seeing Seattle from the water too. One of our customers thought that her daughter should get married on the boat!
