    I worked at California Psychcare part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great experience in learning how to use applied behavior analysis. CPC pays for last minute cancellations.

    Cons

    Clients cancel at times-which means, no work for that session.

    I have been working at California Psychcare part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Lots of additional training offered on a Monthly basis
    * Very lenient on scheduling
    * Lots of time working with children and their families
    * Lots of learning opportunities
    * Company has great values and attitudes when it comes to making a difference in children and their families

    Cons

    * Not great for someone who doesn't intend to move up in the company.
    * Full time is only offered to those who want to be a Program Coordinator or can luckily snag a school case.
    * Communication between staff and their superiors is a bit shaky; Program Coordinators are over worked and may or may not get back to you on questions/concerns/etc.
    * Not a great job if you are looking for stability or full-time work

    Advice to Management

    Focus on training/ hiring more Program Coordinators as your current PCs are overworked and due to that, usually too busy to attend to BSS who are trying to do their job.

    I worked at California Psychcare part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the families are GREAT! I love working with the kids! You can see advancement in them which is amazing to see! Cancellations at the door are paid. Its an okay job for someone who is a full time student.

    Cons

    They just got bought out, so it's suppose to be "better". HA! They are just pushing their former employees out. You are expected to drive everywhere (they never really told us about the amount of driving in the interview). You get NO support. Yet they expect you to know everything. If you think you are going to pay rent with this job GOOD LUCK! So many cancellations, and the company keeps hiring more people so theres a very low chance you will get the hours you need. A lot of the things they do are unethical, so I felt very uncomfortable at certain points of time.

    Advice to Management

    See what other ABA companies are doing! They provide tool bags and do everything on iPads! You make us spend our own money (which the pay is not worth it), on tools used for consumers.

    I worked at California Psychcare part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get experience working with children on the autism spectrum, or other developmental disabilities, which gives you a unique opportunity to positively impact their lives.

    Cons

    Failed to provide good training and support. Hours are not very good (usually no more than 3 hours per day on weekdays) because children are usually in school;

    I have been working at California Psychcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great local office
    3 tier model
    Flex schedule

    Cons

    Technology issues
    No retirement
    HIGH BILLABLE 120 per month
    Insurance is expensive and impossible to afford for dependents.
    Overall corporate culture isn't great- punitive and passive agressive. Doesn't understand needs of local area.
    Must use personal cell phone
    No reimbursement for CEUs.
    Must bill 6 hours per day even when required to attend all day trainings.

    Advice to Management

    You're an ABA company. Try using reinforcement with staff instead of just using punishment. The reason you can't find BCBAs is because other companies (ACES,. AST, EasterSeals, ect) offer better salary, insurance, retirement, mileage, 100 hours max billable.

    Pros

    I loved working here! Some supervisors had great communication with me, always gave suggestions on how to improve. Allows flexible schedules.

    Cons

    Some supervisors were not as helpful as others with instructions on how to run certain programs

    Advice to Management

    Have all supervisors give details instructions on how they would like programs to be run. Giving staff proper materials for more group activities to build social inclusion in the families home.
