I have been working at BIS (Behavior Intervention Services) full-time (More than a year)
Environment and atmosphere continue to improve on a daily basis. In a field that is under various cuts and policy changes, BIS continues to push forward with staff and consumer at the heart of their decisions.
New staff enter the agency with a false expectation of the position.
Advice to Management
Continue to build on the foundation that has been laid.
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at BIS (Behavior Intervention Services) (Saint Louis, MO).
The hiring process at this agency is fantastic! Their hiring manager, Lisa, is just absolutely terrific. She is so pleasant to work with and talk with, and it's obvious that she cares about finding her clients the perfect staff member! She asks specific questions as they relate to specific clients, so it's obvious that she has already thought about where to place you before you even come in for an interview.
Lisa called to set up an interview less than 3 business days after I submitted my application (online application is very easy to fill out!). She asked basic questions over the phone, and then set up a time to have me come in to the office for a formal interview. The job atmosphere is very casual at the office- most office employees wear jeans, people have their dogs at the office, there is a daycare on-site for full-time or part-time employees and there are current clients that work too, doing assigned office jobs throughout the day
I heard from Lisa after my interview within 3 business days with a job offer. The job offer was sent via e-mail and had my job title and pay information in it which was very helpful. I was given a set amount of time to respond by, and at the bottom was all of Lisa's contact information. After I accepted the offer, Lisa responded the very next day to discuss a training schedule. Orientation is approximately 40 hours' worth of sitting in presentations done by people who are actually current supervisors at the agency. Some are done better than others, but it's apparent that they are all fun people! You meet with your supervisor the week of training to either review or create a schedule, and you get set up with hands-on training and a time to meet your clients as soon as your training is completed!
