    This job has great benefits.
    Working with the individuals at YAI is rewarding in ways that your average place of employment could never give you. One thing that every staff member can agree with is that your heart will be touched and you will be proud to serve the individuals that live in the residents and or attend the day program.
    Great staff - feels like family.


    Working as a DSP - can be challenging and exhausting in ways although very rewarding.
    You will never be a millionaire working for a non-profit agency no matter how hard you work.

    Advice to Management

    Overall I think that management listens when staff expresses their wants and needs.
    Unfortunately ever households {residents} is different so having a set pay-scale for DSP can seem unfair when ultimately so are more difficult to work than others.

    I applied online – interviewed at YAI National Institute.


    group interview..took about 45 mins in total and then very brief one to one. Asked basic questions like what would you do in this situation and how would you react to the patient if they are being difficult.
