25. CONCLUSION - Please use this space to share any other
feedback, comments, or suggestions about your experience
at Western Technical College.
Text Response
The program was good. The job placement in this area are weak at best. I have had too many
advisory board members shun graduates from the program due to requesting too much money
to stating lack of desire to do the job. I think we come out with an unfair disadvantage instead of
an advantage. I applied for six jobs . I was granted 1 interview. This is the La Crosse area. I
think everyone coming out of the program should be granted at least an interview, especially
companies who represent the advisory board of the landscape/ hort program. I think the
program trained us well for the job.
i think it's bullshit that alot of my resouces that i need to do homework is locked in rooms after 5
pm on a monday or any other day of the week. someone needs to pay more attention to pete
and how he does things.
