    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Verbal Behavior Center for Autism (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly employees, small company with opportunity for growth, job is for a good cause, you get to see improvement of clients over time, $0.45/ mi from client to client, willingness to give insurance even at 30 hr/wk, paid training

    Cons

    Low starting wage ($16 for direct service, $15 for everything else), low hours (contract only guarantees hours for the first three months- currently offers 20-40 hrs/wk), a lot of office work that is mind-numbing (finding pictures, cutting, laminating, putting papers in binders, organizing), pretty much have to become rBT (which they don't offer compensation for), a ton of driving (upwards of 2.5 hr/day, 300 mi/week), requires a lot of patients (a lot of noncompliance seen with clients), uncomfortable client settings (you are guaranteed to sweat during summer because they don't put on AC)

    Advice to Management

    Don't mislead employees to thinking they can get full time. They seemed happy that I wanted to be full time but gave me 30 hours a week for the first three months and then cut my hours afterwards (I wanted 40 hours, which no employees has now)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Verbal Behavior Center for Autism (Irvine, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    There is no need to be nervous if you have gotten this far. As far as I know, at the Irvine branch, there has been no candidate that has not passed the interview. There are the basic 'tell me about yourself' questions and then a lot of scenario questions, in which your answer will be written down.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you respond to a parent who said that they don't believe in ABA and, instead, believed that massage therapy works for children with Autism?   Answer Question
