    Pros

    Great supportive staff and training. Flexible work schedule and laid back office environment. My Supervisors really cared about my growth and gave me guidance when needed.

    Pros

    I learned a lot from the many different students I worked with. Flexible schedule. Nice people. The students definitely make the job worth it at times. they taught me more than anything and is something I will always hold dear to my heart

    Cons

    The staff was extremely unorganized and often the information they gave me was not reliable or helpful. I received zero training and most of what I learned was on the job and adapting to the situation. I worked as a substitute and was only given a text message with little information about the student I was supposed to help. Upon being notified I was often given little time to get to my destination as I did not live in the towns they served. I could drive 45 minutes out of my way just to find out the student didn't even show up to school that day. Because of the unreliable hours and pay it often cost me more in gas than it was worth. There was very little room for advancement , no benefits and people with less education or time on the job would be offered full-time contracts before I was

    Advice to Management

    Get more information about the students you serve and always have contact information ( like the guardians/ parents) phone number. Provide more thorough training to all staff members

    I have been working at Easter Seals full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good bit of autonomy
    All good experiences with co-workers
    Somewhat flexible hours. Consumers across the board pretty good. Casual relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Constantly change staff's schedules & work locations & unfair distribution of work loads.
    Site Managers all run things differently. Rules for one staff is def not the rule for all. Site Managers hardest part of the job to deal with. Low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the same page. Offer the same opportunities as each other. Pass along the same info. STOP playing favorites. Ask staff their opinions.

    Pros

    -Very extensive training period.
    -excellent support from PMs
    -rewarding job
    -one of the highest paying companies that offer ABA

    Advice to Management

    Your retention rate would be a lot higher if you did not make BIs only part-time and force them to look elsewhere for work.
