    Pros

    If you like helping families or children with disabilities and don't mind using your gas to drive everywhere, then this may be an option.

    Cons

    They give you the illusion that you can work your own hours.
    Never enough hours. They hire new people over giving you better work times.
    Horrible working conditions (not always but 90% of the time).
    No drive time. (Only between clients within 1 hour but they never schedule you for that).
    Prey on recent grads looking for work.
    Office staff is rarely around when you need them.
    They treat the families poorly and act as if they are doing them a favor; seen this multiple times.
    They overwork their supervisors which can put them in a bad mood for the instructors to deal with.
    Overall, a horrible company that doesn't care for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-structure the entire company. The way you treat your customers is unacceptable and the way you treat your workers is borderline illegal. If you want higher retention, be nicer to the instructors.

    Pros

    It is definitely to be able to work with autistic children. That, in itself, is rewarding.

    Cons

    The location I worked with in Apple Valley was largely unorganized. They stopped calling me because supposedly I didn't provide them "suitable availability" which was a bold-faced crock of crap. They seem to have a difficult time even providing you a schedule when you're simply a Substitute Teacher. It initially took them forever to let me know whether I did well enough on their test, which is like taking a final at your local community college.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would actually be great if the organization as a whole had more jobs to offer. When I finally started working with any clients, I had already conferred a Master's of Science in Nonprofit Management that I couldn't even put to use because they don't seem to have positions for let's say an Executive or even Program Director. They do not have the structure of a nonprofit organization at all.

    Pros

    Meet great people, stepping stone for another job

    Cons

    HORRID payroll and HR department. You can go months without seeing a paycheck and they won't do much to help you and avoid your phone calls. Hire turnover rate. Everyone usually only stays with this company for a few months and then quits because they are not getting paid or because the work is too rough. Only get paid mileage if you are driving from one case to another. Tough on your car, no matter how new it is. Families cancel often and you won't get paid for the day unless you are at their front door. Some families are very rude and crazy but others are very kind. Can be rewarding, but also very stressful and would be worth the money if HR and Payroll ever decided to pay someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all of your HR and Payroll employees. Hire someone who sort of wants to help someone.

    Pros

    Each supervisor is very passionate about the work that they do as well as the needs of their employees. They are very flexible with scheduling hours, meeting with you personally if you need assistance with a particular case and even drive to your session from time to time to make sure that everything is running smoothly.

    Cons

    It is not a very stable job considering the fact that each session runs for about 2 hours each. It honestly is very difficult to be able to work enough hours in order to sustain yourself financially. Many of the employees here work at least one other job. Each paycheck can fluctuate a little bit due to cancellations of sessions. The instability of this job is really my only complaint. Everyone says it is more of a stepping stone to build your carer, but not a job to keep forever. It can also be a job that takes a lot of energy out of you, but at the end of the day it is very rewarding work.
