    Pros

    Great Training, loved working with families and children. The experience I received from this company has definitely set me up for my current position as a special education teacher in a public school setting. I truly enjoyed getting to know the children and families I worked with.

    Cons

    Too much driving, not enough reimbursement, company tries to be as cheap as possible in paying their employees. No paid time off, no paid sick leave, no money given for reimbursement for supplies. Won't let you bill for the hours of time spent on material creation. If its bad weather and you can't drive on the roads, you don't get paid. Your senior therapists always made you feel guilty about having to call out due to weather. I'm sorry, your mean and condescending attitude towards me and other employees doesn't make me want to drive in a foot of snow and possibly die. The company promised to have your cases relatively close to one another, yet I was sometimes driving 200 miles a day, yet only being able to bill for 4 hours.

    Senior therapists were extremely condescending to ABA therapists. Very belittling and rude. When you work with special needs children and their families, you need empathy, kindness, personality. You get to know the families and become part of their lives. Certain senior therapists would get on my case for asking how the family was, or asking about their child, i.e., "How did Halloween go? Are they adjusting to their new home? How's their daily routine going? I'm so sorry to hear about Grandma passing away, how are you?" etc. When you are working in someone's home, everyday, you get to know them on more of a personal level. I was not going beyond the professional boundaries by any means, but I wanted families to feel that I cared about them and their child. That I was not a robot, to come in, express no kindness or concern, take up room in their home and their lives, and leave without sincerity.

    I am a dedicated professional, who has received many compliments from my employers and families that I work with. My sincerity and true dedication to my students and families, as well as my warm personality, has made me requested by administration in my county, as well as by families who look forward to my working with them. I take pride in that. I'm just glad I found an employer who also stands by the same principles I do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better. We work in the positive reinforcement field, give some positive reinforcement to your employees, before they quit, like I did.
