AST provides excellent training and development. They are committed to being a top service provider. They also make changes to policies when appropriate to benefit the employees. Supervisors are on your side and will do what they can to help you if you are struggling. They support growth within the company to employees looking to become supervisors and board certified behavior analysts. Very professional and organized organization. Open door policy. Most everyone is very friendly.
Raises are nearly non-existent (one every 2-3 years). If you do get a raise, it will be very little (about .50 an hour). This job is not for everyone; it can be filled with very difficult clients; it can be as equally rewarding as it is challenging. Unless you want to become a supervisor, there is no real room for growth. You can become an advanced behavior therapist; but the increase in pay is negligible. Hours of work can be extremely low in the summer and when school is on break for the winter. It is not uncommon to have 10 hours or less per week during the summer. There will also be times when you are on your way to work and you will receive a call that your session has been cancelled because your client is sick; you will then be paid less than half your regular rate. If they are sick for a few days and there aren't cases that need coverage, you will not get paid.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Autism Spectrum Therapies.
It was easy. The interviewer called me in the morning, and gave me a 20min. interview. That was pretty much the gist of it all, because he called me two weeks earlier to look for my offer. He was pleasant, and friendly. He was not intimidating at all.
