    I worked at University of North Texas part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The affiliation with UNT brought in some good consultants. Very nice facility. State of the art surveillance system. Clean. Supervisory staff was kind and tried to be helpful.

    Cons

    Staff retention was a problem. New staff were undertrained and in this business, without proper training, the job can be quite difficult. Add to that a mediocre hourly wage and no full time positions with benefits and it was pretty much guaranteed if staff were not students studying ABA, they were not destined to remain long. Programming for clients was poor due to lack of time and busy college students providing those services. Poor management caused many problems with staff satisfaction. Without being in the field, opportunities for advancement were non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder at retaining staff. Try to pay a bit more.
