I have to say that Empire is without a doubt the worst beauty school and need to e closed and funds collected should be refunded to all students. I cannot begin to express my sadness when talking about my experience at this school. From the first day of class and until the very last day I had I complained to whom ever was in charge since it changes on a regular basis. Many students are disruptive and do not follow the rules and the teachers do not enforce the rules. There is huge turn over rate for teachers they come and go on a weekly basis. Some teachers were very boring and and no clue what was going on. Admissions made it seem like we were going to learn from the best most gifted instructors but that was not the case.
If you are serious about the hair industry do not go to Empire as it is a dream killer. You will loose all interest if you go to Empire. The daily cirriculum was not what I was told it would be during the admission process. I barely learned how to do a starboard hair cut and I blame this on the teachers that come and go. The director would pull teachers out of classroom for three hour long meetings leaving the students in class with nothing to do. Much time is wasted, and classroom time is poorly planned. I would sit there and think how much I was paying for the program and narrowed it down to the minute and would get so angry about how much money was being wasted. They never had any supplies, paper towels, shampoo, conditioner or gloves. As soon as you pay that $3,000 and sign on the dotted line they kick you to the curb.
