    I have been working at Pacific Coast Speech Services part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    While I am not a speech pathologist, I have had the opportunity to work closely with the owners and directors, Louise and Annette, to create promotional materials, internal software tools, and provide advice and support tech wise. Through this I have learned a lot about PCSS's company culture and values, as well as a good amount about speech therapy in general. Louise and Annette are very nice people that are incredibly talented and experienced speech pathologists. They know the ins and outs of the practice and all the issues that may arise during your casework.

    What really makes PCSS special is that they truly care about their SLPs and SLPAs. They provide ample support, and work hard to find you the correct placement depending on your needs. They are passionate about helping recent graduates develop their skills in their first job out of college in order to set them up for a successful and rewarding career in speech therapy. PCSS has made helpful handouts and other tools that are always a hit with people at conferences. They are always happy to answer any questions or concerns that may arise on your caseload. To put it simply, they want you to succeed and be happy, and will always have your back.

    I have worked with PCSS as needed for the last 8 years and it has been a great experience that has taught me valuable interpersonal skills that I plan to take with me into my career. They have provided me the opportunity to apply and develop my design and tech skills in a real world setting. I am extremely grateful for the time I have spent with PCSS and would highly recommend them to any SLP or SLPA looking for work in a school setting in Southern California.

    Cons

    PCSS contracts out to schools, so this is not a good choice for those looking to work in a private practice or a medical setting.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pacific Coast Speech Services (Irvine, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I had spoken extensively to Louise prior to the interview about the company, how they chose their school sites, and my skills. Louise and her business partner interviewed me. This was actually one of my first professional interviews, so it was a little intimidating to have two of them, but they were very easy to talk to, and open to answering any questions that I asked. It was also the first interview that I have done with speech pathologists versus a human resources person. They did ask lot of more difficult questions, but they were really friendly as well and gave me time to think about my answers for the more difficult questions. They also gave me some good advice.

    Interview Questions

    • You have been given an assessment plan for a fourth grade boy. He's doing well academically, but tends to blurt out inappropriate comments and has trouble with group work. Autism is being ruled out. How would you evaluate this student?   1 Answer
